Amaj7        D        Cmaj7          Bm7     Cmaj7   A   Cmaj7 A
 O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
Verse 1
Cmaj7          D            Bm7                  Em
When I see the heavens, the work of your fingers,
    Cmaj7        Bm7               E
the moon and the stars which you arranged,
Cmaj7    D                   Em           
 what is man that you should keep him in mind,
    Am7    Bm7                   E    E7
the son of man that you care for him?  
Verse 2
Cmaj7         D               Bm7            Em
 Yet you have made him little lower than the angels;
     Cmaj7     Bm7       E
with glory and honor you crowned him,
Cmaj7     D              Em           
 gave him power over the works of your hands:
Am7          Bm7              E    E7
 you put all things under his feet.  
Verse 3
Cmaj7   D    Bm7         Em
 All of them,  sheep and oxen,
Cmaj7          Bm7           E
 yes, even the cattle of the fields,
Cmaj7         D        Em           
 birds of the air, and fish of the sea
Am7              Bm7             E    E7
 that make their way through the waters.
