A Song of Ascents
1 Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens.
2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, as the eyes of a maid
to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes wait upon Jehovah our God, until He shall have
mercy upon us.
3 Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us! For we are more than enough
held in contempt.
4 Our soul has more than enough of the derision of those who are at ease, with the
contempt of the proud who oppress us.
