Lyrics: Psalm 8

Domine Dominus noster quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra quoniam elevata est magnificentia tua super caelos.
Ex ore infantium et lactantium perfecisti laudem propter inimicos tuos ut destruas inimicum et ultorem.
Quoniam videbo caelos tuos; opera digitorum tuorum lunam et stellas quae tu fundasti.
Quid est homo quod memor es eius aut filius hominis quoniam visitas eum?
Minuisti eum paulo minus ab angelis gloria et honore coronasti eum
et constituisti eum super opera manuum tuarum.
Omnia subiecisti sub pedibus eius oves et boves universas insuper et pecora campi,
volucres caeli et pisces maris qui perambulant semitas maris.
Domine Dominus noster quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra

O Lord our Governor, how excellent is thy Name in all the world: thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies: that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
For I will consider thy heavens, even the works of thy fingers: the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him: and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Thou madest him lower than the angels: to crown him with glory and worship.
Thou makest him to have dominion of the works of thy hands: and thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet;
All sheep and oxen: yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea: and whatsoever walketh through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Governor: how excellent is thy Name in all the world!
