Versatile Psalmist 8.0
O Lord, how marvelous and magnificent is Your name
When we give our lives to You, we are never the same,
Above the heavens can be seen your majesty and glory
The pages of the Bible describe Your omnipotent story.
Out of the mouths of the infants with their simple faith
Can best be shown the power of what the Lord does saith,
Your stories confuse the men who esteem themselves wise
The love of God can best be seen in the good Samaritan’s eyes.
When I look at the stars and the moon, I admire Your craft
You were with Noah on the wooden ark; starboard and aft,
What are we human beings, Lord, that you still consider us?
How blessed are we that you incarnated Yourself as Jesus!
You have made us a little lower than the angels from on high
You have given us dominion over all that swims, walks, or flies,
We are blessed by the blood that You shed when You came
O Lord, how majestic You are and we praise now Your name!
Author’s note: This poem was inspired by Psalm 8 and simply a pleasure to write. I listened to the songs, The Love Of God and Turn Your Eyes as I wrote this poem. I write these to better understand the Lord and because I truly enjoy writing poetry. Nothing I write is intended to replace or supplant any word the Lord has sown into your life.
I hope that you are able to count your blessings today. In ways both audibly and within the sanctuary of our spirit; the Lord Jesus Christ is worthy of our praise. Will you let your voice be heard? Amen!
