Read Psalm 8


Read Psalm 8

O Lord, our Lord,
your greatness is seen in all the world!
Your praise reaches up to the heavens;
2it is sung by children and babies.
You are safe and secure from all your enemies;
you stop anyone who opposes you.
3When I look at the sky, which you have made,
at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places-
4what are human beings, that you think of them;
mere mortals, that you care for them?
5Yet you made them inferior only to yourself;m
you crowned them with glory and honour.
6You appointed them rulers over everything you made;
you placed them over all creation:
7sheep and cattle,
and the wild animals too;
8the birds and the fish and the creatures in the seas.
9O Lord, our Lord,
your greatness is seen in all the world!


This Psalm celebrates the wonder of creation - and wonders at the place of human beings in all of this.


Lord you appoint us as 'rulers over everything you have made...'  And so you give us the gift of a new year.  Help us to steward the gift of a new year in a way that brings glory to you.
