A Prayer for Mercy
A song for going up to worship.
1Lord, I look up to you.
You live in heaven.
2Slaves depend on their masters.
And a female servant depends on her mistress.
In the same way, we depend on our God.
We wait for him to show us mercy.
3Be kind to us, Lord. Be kind to us
because we have been insulted.
4We have suffered many insults from lazy people
and much cruelty from the proud.
