Psalm 8 reimagined

Note: A psalm of David written for the choir director to arrange to be sung to the  accompaniment of a string orchestra.

  1. Lord, our leader, the earth is awesome and demonstrates your greatness.  The universe echoes with many voices of wonder.
  2. Yet you encourage children and toddlers to tell stories of your achievements and to silence those who would defy and oppose you.
  1. When looking at the night sky and thinking of the billions of stars and planets which you shaped,
  2. I am amazed at the great compassion and care that you have for ordinary people.  Why do you love us so much?
  3. You made us like you, our Creator, with the abilities to make and achieve great things.
  4. You passed to us responsibility for everything you made, asking us to care for –
  5. The flocks of sheep and goats and the herds of cows and pigs; and for all wild animals,
  6. 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.
  1. Lord, our leader, the earth is awesome and demonstrates your greatness.
