Psalm 123 T.S.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 O Thou that in the heav'ns dost dwell, I lift my eyes to thee; E'en as a servant lifteth his, his master's hands to see:
2 As handmaids watch their mistress' hand, some grace for to achieve, So we behold the Lord our God, till he doth us forgive.
3 O grant to us compassion, Lord, and mercy in thy sight, For we are filled and overcome with hatred and despite.
4 Our minds are filled with great rebuke, the rich and worldly wise Do make of us their mocking stocks, the proud do us despise.
