"Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." Rom 3:27-28
Excerpt (Hymn) From
Psalm 8:1. S. M.
1 O Lord, our heavenly King,
2 When to thy works on high
3 When I survey the stars,
4 Lord, what is worthless man,
5 Thine honours crown his head,
6 How rich thy bounties are!
7 [Out of the mouths of babes
8 O Lord, our heavenly King,
Psalm 8:2. C. M.
1 O Lord, our Lord, how wondrous great
2 When I behold thy works on high,
3 Lord, what is man, or all his race,
4 That thine eternal Son should bear
5 [Yet while he liv'd on earth unknown,
6 The waves lay spread beneath his feet;
7 These lesser glories of the Son
8 Let him be crown'd with majesty,
9 Jesus, our Lord, how wondrous great
Psalm 8:3. 1 2. paraphrased.
1 Almighty Ruler of the skies,
2 To thee the voices of the young
3 Thy power assists their tender age
4 Children amidst thy temple throng
3 The frowning scribes and angry priests
Psalm 8:4. 3 &c. paraphrased.
1 Lord, what was man, when made at first,
2 That thou shouldst raise his nature so
3 But O, what brighter glories wait
4 See him below his angels made,
5 The world to come, redeem'd from all
Hymn by Isaac Watts, excerpted from "The Psalms of David, Imitated in the Language of the New Testament, and Applied to the Christian State and Worship"
"O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet" Psa 8:1-6 KJV
