Moshe Mendlowitz & Naftali Kempeh - Ma Enosh

Dovid HaMelech looks to the heavens and exclaims, "When I see Your heavens, the work of Your hands, the moon and the stars which You have set there, I am then confounded, what is Man that You should mention him, or consider him of any worth?! Yet by infusing him with a neshamah, You created him only a tad lower than the heavenly angels, and You crowned him with majesty and glory.

The Gemara in Shabbos explains this passuk in the following manner: מה אנוש כי תזכרנו... Although Man is nothing when compared to angels, ותחסרהו מעט מאלקים...., by giving him the Torah, thereby crowning him with glory, he is able to surpass the level of even the heavenly angels.
