Today we praise and worship our Lord Jesus with a song that’s been around awhile but will always be pertinent because it is straight out of the Bible. How Majestic is Your Name is based on Psalm 8, which is a messianic psalm emphasizing the humanity of Jesus Christ and His ultimate victory as Man.
As you listen to this praise song, ponder the worshipful words of David exalting the Lord as our majestic and glorious Redeemer!
The Lord’s Glory and Man’s Dignity.
A Psalm of David.
O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth,
Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!
2 From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength
Because of Your adversaries,
To make the enemy and the revengeful cease.
3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained;
4 What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
5 Yet You have made him a little lower than God,
And You crown him with glory and majesty!
6 You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen,
And also the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,
Whatever passes through the paths of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Lord,
How majestic is Your name in all the earth!
