Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 123

A song of degrees.

1 O Thou that sittest in the heav’ns,

I lift mine eyes to thee.

2 Lo, as the servants eyes unto

hand of their masters be:

As maids eyes to her mistress hand,

so are our eyes unto

the Lord our God, until that he

shall mercy to us show.

3 O Lord be merciful to us,

merciful to us be:

because that filled with contempt

exceedingly are we.

4 With scorn of those that be at ease,

our soul’s fill’d very much:

also of those that great ones are,

ev’n with contempt of such.
