Psalm 123

Music:

ADVENT

Lyrics:

Psalm 123.1 To Thee I lift my eyes, O Thou
who art in heaven enthroned.
2 As servants watch their master’s hand,
or as a maid’s eyes wait
her mistress’ hand to see,

So our eyes, waiting, now attend
upon the LORD our God,
Until He gracious be to us.
3 Be gracious to us, LORD.
Be gracious unto us,

for we are sated with contempt;
4 our soul is surfeited
with all the scoffing insolence
of those who live at ease,
and with the proud’s contempt.
