To You I Lift Up My Eyes
A Song of Ascents.
To You I lift up my eyes,
The One enthroned in the heavens! 2
Behold, as the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
As the eyes of a servant‑girl to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to Yahweh our God,
Until He is gracious to us.
Be gracious to us, O Yahweh, be gracious to us,
For we are greatly saturated with contempt. 4
Our soul is greatly saturated
With the mockery of those who are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
