"O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen--
Even the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.
O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!"
What a humbling realization it is that God, the Creator of all things, has entrusted us with the care of His awesome creation. Even more, He made it all for us! More humbling still is the fact the same Almighty God sent His only Son to bleed and die so that we may obtain salvation. Just who are we that He is so mindful of us? Let us always be mindful of His unfathomable love and favor.
Who Am I?
When I think of how He came so far from Glory,
Came to dwell among the lowly such as I;
To suffer shame and such disgrace,
On Mount Calvary take my place,
Then I ask myself a question,
Who am I?
Who am I that a King would bleed and die for?
Who am I that He would pray, "Not my will, Thine," for?
The answer I may never know,
Why He ever loved me so;
That to an old rugged cross He'd go For who am I?
Then I'm reminded of His words, "I'll leave thee never,
Just be true, I'll give to you a life forever,"
I wonder what I could have done
To deserve God's only Son,
Fight my battles 'til they're won,
Who am I?
