Psalm 8

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 6.6.8.6 Appears in 130 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 8 First Line: O Lord, our heav'nly King Lyrics: O Lord, our heav'nly King, Thy name is all divine; Thy glories round the earth are spread, And o'er the heav'ns they shine. When to thy works on high I raise my wondering eyes, And see the moon, complete in light, Adorn the darksome skies When I survey the stars, And all their shining forms, Lord, what is man, that worthless thing, Akin to dust and worms? Lord, what is worthless man, That thou shouldst love him so? Next to thine angels is he placed, And lord of all below. Thine honors crown his head, While beasts, like slaves, obey; And birds that cut the air with wings, And fish that cleave the sea. How rich thy bounties are! And wondrous are thy ways Of dust and worms thy power can frame A monument of praise. [Out of the mouths of babes And sucklings thou canst draw Surprising honors to thy name, And strike the world with awe. O Lord, our heav'nly King, Thy name is all divine; Thy glories round the earth are spread, And o'er the heav'ns they shine.] Topics: Christ exalted to the kingdom; Adam the first and second, their dominion; Christ his condescension and glorification; Christ praised by children; Christ the second Adam, his incarnation, his dominion; Dominion of man over creatures; Glorification and condescension of Christ; God his sovereignty and goodness to man; God made man; God praised by children; Goodness of God; Hosanna of the children; Man dominion over creatures; Praise to God from children

Psalm 8

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 66 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 8 First Line: O LORD, our Lord, how wondrous great Lyrics: O LORD, our Lord, how wondrous great Is thine exalted name! The glories of thy heav'nly state Let men and babes proclaim. When I behold thy works on high, The moon that rules the night, And stars that well adorn the sky, Those moving worlds of light; Lord, what is man, or all his race, Who dwells so far below, That thou shouldst visit him with grace, And love his nature so? That thine eternal Son should bear To take a mortal form; Made lower than his angels are, To save a dying worm? [Yet while he lived on earth unknown, And men would not adore, Th' obedient seas and fishes own His Godhead and his power. The waves lay spread beneath his feet; And fish, at his command, Bring their large shoals to Peter's feet, Bring tribute to his hand. These lesser glories of the Son Shone through the fleshly cloud; Now, we behold him on his throne, And men confess him God.] Let him be crowned with majesty, Who bowed his head to death; And be his honors sounded high, By all things that have breath. Jesus, our Lord, how wondrous great Is thine exalted name! The glories of thy heav'nly state Let the whole earth proclaim.

Psalm 8 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 77 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 8:1-2 First Line: Almighty Ruler of the skies Lyrics: Almighty Ruler of the skies, Through the wide earth thy name is spread; And thine eternal glories rise O'er all the heav'ns thy hands have made. To thee the voices of the young A monument of honor raise; And babes, with uninstructed tongue, Declare the wonders of thy praise. Thy power assists their tender age To bring proud rebels to the ground, To still the bold blasphemer's rage, And all their policies confound. Children amidst thy temple throng To see their great Redeemer's face; The Son of David is their song, And young hosannas fill the place. The frowning scribes and angry priests In vain their impious cavils bring; Revenge sits silent in their breasts, While Jewish babes proclaim their King. Topics: Christ exalted to the kingdom; Adam the first and second, their dominion; Children praising God; Christ his condescension and glorification; Christ praised by children; Christ the second Adam, his incarnation, his dominion; Dominion of man over creatures; Glorification and condescension of Christ; God his sovereignty and goodness to man; God made man; God praised by children; Goodness of God; Hosanna of the children; Man dominion over creatures; Praise to God from children

That thou shouldst raise his nature so, And make him lord of all below; Make every beast and bird submit, And lay the fishes at his feet? But, O! what brighter glories wait To crown the Second Adam's state! What honors shall thy Son adorn, Who condescended to be born! See him below his angels made; See him in dust amongst the dead, To save a ruined world from sin; But he shall reign with power divine.
