Psalm 123

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

1    O thou that dwellest in the heav'ns,
       I lift mine eyes to thee.
2    Behold, as servants' eyes do look
       their masters' hand to see,
     As handmaid's eyes her mistress' hand;
       so do our eyes attend
     Upon the Lord our God, until
       to us he mercy send.

3    O Lord, be gracious to us,
       unto us gracious be;
     Because replenish'd with contempt
       exceedingly are we.
4    Our soul is fill'd with scorn of those
       that at their ease abide,
     And with the insolent contempt
       of those that swell in pride.
