Responsorial Psalm for the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children

Psalm 8:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

Summary: God's majestic creation prompts wonder at humanity's significance. Elevated near divinity, crowned with honor, we are entrusted with stewardship over all creatures and the earth.

Humanity's Honored Role

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

When I behold your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and stars which you set in place—
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!

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!

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!
