The Psalms

A Prayer for Mercy
A Song of degrees.

1  Unto thee lift I up mine eyes,
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2  Behold, 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;
so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God,
until that he have mercy upon us.
3  Have mercy upon us, O LORD,
have mercy upon us:
for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4  Our soul is exceedingly filled
with the scorning of those that are at ease,
and with the contempt of the proud.
