1To thee I lift up my eyes,

O thou who art enthroned in the heavens!

2Behold, as the eyes of servants

look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a maid

to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the Lord our God,

till he have mercy upon us.

3Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us,

for we have had more than enough of contempt.

4Too long our soul has been sated

with the scorn of those who are at ease,

the contempt of the proud.
