Responsorial Psalm for the Thursday in the Octave of Easter

Psalm 8:2ab and 5, 6-7, 8-9

Summary: God's name is exalted worldwide, pondering His mindfulness of humanity, bestowed with near-divine stature and entrusted with creation's stewardship. All earth's creatures, reflecting this honor, underscore the breadth of His magnificence.

Humanity's Honored Role

R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth! (or Alleluia)

O LORD, our Lord,
how glorious is your name over all the earth!
What is man that you should be mindful of him,
or the son of man that you should care for him?

R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth! (or Alleluia)

You have made him little less than the angels,
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him rule over the works of your hands,
putting all things under his feet.

R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth! (or Alleluia)

All sheep and oxen,
yes, and the beasts of the field,
The birds of the air, the fishes of the sea,
and whatever swims the paths of the seas.

R. O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth! (or Alleluia)
