Music and lyrics by Joan Beckow
Lyrics based on Psalm 8, Old Testament
Arranged for two violins and cello by Wendy B Stuart


Lord, how majestic is Thy presence,
How majestic is Thy presence in all of the earth.
My sovereign Lord, bringing glory to the heavens,
Perfect glory to the heavens, unmeasured its worth.

I tremble in wonder.
Tremble in awe
At the splendor I see before me.
How sweet is the moon,
As it fills the night with gold and beckons my soul.

Lord, what are we that you are mindful of us,
What are we that you should love us,
And cherish us so?
My sovereign Lord,
You have showered us with honor,
In your tenderness you’ve made us just less than divine.

We long for the wisdom, goodness and grace
To be worthy of all Thy blessings.
In mercy, may we grow strong.
Hear this prayer, Oh Lord.
Receive with favor, our song.

Lord, Lord,
My sovereign Lord.
What are we that you are mindful of us?
