Psalm 123 Revised Standard Version

A Prayer for Mercy

123 1  A Song of Ascents. To thee I lift up my eyes, O thou who art enthroned in the heavens! 2  Behold, 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, till he have mercy upon us. 3  Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt. 4  Too long our soul has been sated with the scorn of those who are at ease, the contempt of the proud.
