Psalm 123


Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God



 A SONG OF ASCENTS. 


      1 To you I lift up my eyes, 

      O you who are enthroned in the heavens! 

      2 Behold, as the eyes of servants 

      look to the hand of their master, 

      as the eyes of a maidservant 

      to the hand of her mistress, 

      so our eyes look to the LORD our God, 

      till he has mercy upon us. 


      3 Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, 

      for we have had more than enough of contempt. 

      4 Our soul has had more than enough 

      of the scorn of those who are at ease, 

      of the contempt of the proud.
