Psalm 123

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

A Song of Ascents

 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 unto us,
       unto us gracious be;
    Because replenished with contempt
       exceedingly are we.

 4  Our soul is filled with scorn of those
       that at their ease abide,
    And with the insolent contempt
       of those that swell in pride.
