Our Eyes Look to the Lord Our God
A Song of #[See Ps. 120, title]Ascents.
1To you I #Ps. 121:1; [Ps. 141:8]; See Ps. 25:15 lift up my eyes,
O you who are #See Ps. 2:4enthroned in the heavens!
2Behold, 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.
Ps. 4:1 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,
for we have had more than enough of #[Neh. 4:4]contempt.
4Our soul has had more than enough
of #[Neh. 2:19] the scorn of #Isa. 32:9, 11; Amos 6:1 those who are at ease,
of the contempt of #See Ps. 119:51the proud.
