A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1I look up and pray to you.
Your throne is in heaven.
2Slaves depend on their masters.
Maids depend on the women they work for.
In the same way, we depend on the Lord our God.
We wait for him to show us his favor.
3Lord, show us your favor. Show us your favor,
because people have made so much fun of us.
4We have had to put up with a lot from those who are proud.
They were always laughing at us.
