1 O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the
moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of
man, that thou visitest him?
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy
14 Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy
and truth shall go before thy face.
15 Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they
shall walk, O Lord, in the light of thy countenance.
16 In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness
shall they be exalted.
17 For thou art the glory of their strength:
15 As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be
satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
