Psalms Chapter 122
Ad te levavi.
A prayer in affliction, with confidence in God.
A gradual canticle.
122:1. To thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven.
122:2. Behold as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters, As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us.
122:3. Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us: for we are greatly filled with contempt.
122:4. For our soul is greatly filled: we are a reproach to the rich, and contempt to the proud.
