Psalm 123
A song of ascents.
I Lift up my eyes to you,
who are throned in the heavens.
As the eyes of a servant
turn to the hand of his master,
or the eyes of a maid
to the hand of her mistress,
so do our eyes turn
to the Lord our God,
until he is gracious to us.
Be gracious, be gracious to us, Lord.
Scorn enough, and more, have we borne
More than enough have we borne
of derision from those at their ease,
of scorn from those who are haughty.
