Psalm 123  Ad te levavi oculos meos.

1     Unto thee lift I up mine eyes : O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

2     Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters : and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress,

3     Even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God : until he have mercy upon us.

4     Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us : for we are utterly despised.

5     Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy : and with the despitefulness of the proud.
