Lyrics: Psalm 8

Domine, Dominus noster, quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra: quoniam elevata est magnificentia tua super caelos.
Ex ore infantium et lactentium perfecisti laudem propter inimicos tuos: ut destruas inimicum et ultorem.
Quoniam videbo caelos tuos, opera digitorum tuorum: lunam et stellas, quae tu fundasti.
Quid est homo, quod memor es eius: aut filius hominis, quoniam visitas eum?
Minuisti eum paulominus ab angeli: gloria et honore coronasti eum.
Et constituisti eum super opera manuum tuarum: omnia subiecisti sub pedibus eius,
Oves et boves universas: insuper et pecora campi;
Volucres caeli, et pisces maris: qui perambulant semitas maris.
Domine, Dominus noster: quam admirabile est nomen tuum in universa terra.

O Lord our Governor, how excellent is thy Name in all the world: thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies: that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
For I will consider thy heavens, even the works 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?
Thou madest him lower than the angels: to crown him with glory and worship.
Thou makest him to have dominion of the works of thy hands: and thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet;
All sheep and oxen: yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea: and whatsoever walketh through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Governor: how excellent is thy Name in all the world.


Christian Erbach
(c.1568 - 1636)
