Psalm 8


O Lord of our Lord, how excellent is thy name in this Universe
Who hast set they glory above the cosmos
Out of the mouth of children and for the Light
Hast thou ordained us to feel such hunger
For knowledge, new worlds, within and without
Thou has made us into migratory seekers
Forever between faith and the Earth
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers,
The moons and the stars of this mindful tapestry
What is man, that thou art mindful of all creatures?
And the children of men, that there is life everywhere?
Has thou visited us, have thy seen our progress?
Will thou crown our wisest children with new technology,
For thou hast made him a little lower than those angels,
Thou hast made man with for the use of tools and language
And he has used the fish of the sea, the beasts of the field
For his dominion, brief dynasty or a species to sow the stars
With the milk of new Earths, O Lord of Love,
How excellent it would be, to greet ourselves in eyes unlike our own.
