Prayer for the LORD’S Help.
A Song of Ascents.
1To Thee I lift up my eyes,
O Thou who art enthroned in the heavens!
2Behold, 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 shall be gracious to us.
3Be gracious to us, O LORD, be gracious to us;
For we are greatly filled with contempt.
4Our soul is greatly filled
With the scoffing of those who are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
