The Heavens Declare Your Wonders

Psalm 8:4-6 (Message)
I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous,
your handmade sky-jewelry, Moon and stars mounted in their settings.

Then I look at my micro-self and wonder,
Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way? 

Yet we've so narrowly missed being gods,
bright with Eden's dawn light. 
You put us in charge of your handcrafted world, 
repeated to us your Genesis-charge, 
Made us lords of sheep and cattle, even animals out in the wild,
Birds flying and fish swimming, whales singing in the ocean deeps.

Ps. 19:1 (NLT)
The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. 

Ps. 144:3
LORD, what is man, that You take knowledge of him?
Or the son of man, that You are mindful if him?
