Lead sheet (piano/vocal chart) for the song “Psalm 8” as performed by NAOBC Worship.

Verse 1
The helpless cry to You;
In their weakness You give strength
To cause the humbling of all Your foes.
The Defender of the meek;
The wicked stilled at Your command,
The avenger cannot stand before Your throne.

Yahweh, my Lord,
Your majestic name
Forever be proclaimed in all the earth!
Yahweh, my Lord,
Receive eternal praise
For Your glory never fades above the earth!

Verse 2
The heavens show Your pow’r;
The moon and stars and sun
Declare You are the One who made it all!
But who am I below
That You would notice me
And even die upon the tree to give me life?

Your thoughts are turned toward us,
Though humbled in the dust.
When we were hateful, vile,
In Christ You reconciled.
You’ve called us from the dark,
Your light shines in our hearts.
You crown us with Your life.
Your glory our delight!
