Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God

A Song of (A)Ascents.

123 To you I (B)lift up my eyes,
    O you who are (C)enthroned in the heavens!
Behold, as the eyes of servants
    look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maidservant
    to the hand of her mistress,
so our eyes look to the Lord our God,
    till he has mercy upon us.

    and why are you (B)in turmoil within me?
(C)Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
    my salvation[a]

    let them lead me;
let them bring me to your (B)holy hill

and I will praise you with the lyre,
    O God, my God.

    and why are you in turmoil within me?
