Let’s look at another of David’s Songs. This one is dedicated to the director of music. That would lead me to think that it was either accompanied by instruments of the time or the words were set to music for use during worship.
This Psalm, gives me great peace when I need to be calmed down. Just knowing that God is in control makes life a little easier.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.
From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of Your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and stars, which You have set in place,
What is man that Your are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?
You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor.
You made him ruler over the works of Your hands; You put everything under his feet;
All flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth!
O Lord, mighty, majestic, all-powerful and all-knowing. Hear our prayers and praises. Forgive our pettiness and selfishness. Heal and restore as only You can. Help us all to love as You love. I lift this prayer before the Throne in Jesus’ Precious and Holy name.
