for Heather

When I look at thy heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars which you have established;
what are mortals that you are mindful of them,
and the children of mortals that you care for them?

Yet you have made them little less than God,
and crown them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the sea.

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

from Psalm 8
