A Prayer for Mercy

A song of the stairway

123 O God-Enthroned in heaven, I lift my eyes toward you in worship.
The way I love you
    is like the way a servant wants to please his master,
    the way a maid waits for the orders of her mistress.
    We look to you, our God, with passionate longing
    to please you and discover more of your mercy and grace.
3–4 For we’ve had more than our fill of this scoffing and scorn—
    this mistreatment by the wealthy elite.
    Lord, show us your mercy!
    Lord, show us your grace!
