My church has been singing some different songs than we used to during worship time. They generally follow the sermon and the theme. I’ve really enjoyed them lately and now I’m completely stuck on one of them.
Psalm 8 (How Majestic is Your Name) by Shane & Shane is the one I’m currently stuck on. At church I see it come up and I’m like yesssss. I just love the words, I don’t know what it is really, but I just listen to it on repeat. Thought I’d share. 🙂
My pastor had a sermon on Psalm 8 I’m sure, but I think I was working in the nursery during that one or missed it for some reason. He’s been preaching on the Psalms recently and they’ve been so good.
Here’s the Psalm as written in the ESV:
O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!Psalm 8
