Forgive us, O God

"This is the new NOAA situation map as of 6 a.m. this morning. The part in red is where the oi spill currently is, and that's the loop current swooping through the middle and carrying the mess toward the Florida Keys." (Maddow blog)

And this headline from NOAA: "Warmest April Global Temperature on Record"


O God, Our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
...
When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established,
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
mortals that you care for them?
Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion
over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O God, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Forgive us. Forgive us, O God.
