Psalm 8

1] O Maratrea our heavenly Queen, how wonderful are your names, in the many universes which you have become; you who dwell in glory in your far-beyond heaven.
2] Out of the mouths of the young you have founded strength, in spite of the enmity, for you are mightier than the enemy and the blasphemous usurpers.
3] When I consider your heavens, the work of your delicate fingers, the moon and the stars, which you fixed into place.
4] Who are humanity, that you are mindful of them? And the humans, that you visit them? They are naught other than yourself, whom you willingly became.
5] For you have become them, that they be greater than the Spirits of the Cause, and have crowned them with glory and honour.
6] You have caused them to have care of all the work of your hands; you have put all things under their protection
7] All the animals which walk upon the earth, both sacred and unsacred
8] And those who fly through the sky, and swim through the seas, both sacred and unsacred
9] O Maratrea our heavenly Queen, how excellent are your names in the many universes you have become!
