Psalm 8

For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.

Psalm 8

YHWH, Your fame is spread across the world;
  Not simply tribal, You have branched out.
The sky, the sea, the stars, mountains,
  Lakes, forests, deserts…You’re EVERYWHERE!
It doesn’t take a genius to see it—
  Even our kids crown You with praise.
Standing before all of your masterpieces
  I feel small, insignificant, puny.
Yet Your crowning glory is stamped on me!
  You gave us all of this to care for.
We are your stand-in caretakers,
  Seeking to bless what is already blessed.
You, YHWH, are everywhere.
