Note: A psalm of David written for the choir director to arrange to be sung to the accompaniment of a string orchestra.
- Lord, our leader, the earth is awesome and demonstrates your greatness. The universe echoes with many voices of wonder.
- Yet you encourage children and toddlers to tell stories of your achievements and to silence those who would defy and oppose you.
- When looking at the night sky and thinking of the billions of stars and planets which you shaped,
- I am amazed at the great compassion and care that you have for ordinary people. Why do you love us so much?
- You made us like you, our Creator, with the abilities to make and achieve great things.
- You passed to us responsibility for everything you made, asking us to care for –
- The flocks of sheep and goats and the herds of cows and pigs; and for all wild animals,
- The birds which grace the sky, the fish which abound in the sea, with all the variety of animals living in the vast oceans, some which will never be seen.
- Lord, our leader, the earth is awesome and demonstrates your greatness.
