Psalm 123

Supplication for Mercy

A Song of Ascents.

1

To you I lift up my eyes,

O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

2

As the eyes of servants

look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a maid

to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the Lord our God,

until 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 its fill

of the scorn of those who are at ease,

of the contempt of the proud.
