What is Man ?

What is man that you make so much of him,
That you give him so much attention,
That you examine him every morning,
And test him every moment.

I know that you can do all things,
I can fly to you on eagle wings,
I spoke of things I did not understand,
Some times I feel I'm alone where I stand.

You said, Listen now, and I will speak,
Look at every proud man,
Crush the wicked where they stand,
It is you Lord that I seek.

Your words have supported those who stumble,
And they have not crumbled,
You have strengthened faltering knees,
Let your words fall on them as you please.

How painful are honest words,
Remember, O God, that my life is but a breath,
Blessed is the man who God corrects.
