When I [a](A)consider (B)Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The (C)moon and the stars, which You have set in place;
(D)What is man that You think of him,
And a son of man that You are concerned about him?
Yet You have made him a (E)little lower than [b]God,
And (F)You crown him with (G)glory and majesty!
You have him (H)rule over the works of Your hands;
You have (I)put everything under his feet,
All sheep and oxen,
And also the animals of the field,
The birds of the sky, and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.

(J)Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
