Psalm 8 (King James Version)
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
Just who are you, that God pays attention to you, that God cares for you, that God has given you talent, physical abilities, intelligence, the ability to love and be loved, and has made you lovable? You are God's child. And that makes you royalty!
When you understand your all that God has done for you, how worthy of love the Lord has made you, it is easy to join the psalmist and sing about that the Lord is excellent!
