A Prayer for Mercy

1231 A Song of the Ascents. Unto Thee I have lifted up mine eyes, O dweller in the heavens. 2 Lo, as eyes of men-servants 'Are' unto the hand of their masters, As eyes of a maid-servant 'Are' unto the hand of her mistress, So 'are' our eyes unto Jehovah our God, Till that He doth favour us. 3 Favour us, O Jehovah, favour us, For greatly have we been filled with contempt, 4 Greatly hath our soul been filled With the scorning of the easy ones, With the contempt of the arrogant!
