Supplication for Mercy

A Song of Ascents.

123 To thee I lift up my eyes,
O thou who art enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, 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,
    till he have mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
    for we have had more than enough of contempt.
Too long our soul has been sated
    with the scorn of those who are at ease,
    the contempt of the proud.
