Majestic Name

As we've been getting ready for the funeral this morning, many Scriptures and songs have been going through my head. This one in particular has stuck out for some reason...I'm not sure why. Maybe because through the last few days, the glory of God seems to have been a recurring theme, along with the themes of comfort and hope. Maybe because proclaiming the glory of God is one of the main things that comes to mind when I think of Bro. Kent's ministry here. And I love the thought of the foe and the avenger being silenced by God-ordained praise today and in the days to come.

No time for photos or even fancy formatting...and these words don't need either. I just want to rest and delight in them today:

Psalm 8

1 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory
above the heavens.

2 From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise
because of your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,

4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
the son of man that you care for him?

5 You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.

6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;
you put everything under his feet:

7 all flocks and herds,
and the beasts of the field,

8 the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea,
all that swim the paths of the seas.

9 O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
