|An Expectant Prayer for Jehovahs Help|
|A Song of Ascents.|
| ||UNTO thee do I lift up mine eyes,|
O thou that sittest in the heavens.
| ||Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their master,|
As the eyes of a maid unto the hand of her mistress;
So our eyes look unto Jehovah our God,
Until he have mercy upon us.
| ||Have mercy upon us, O Jehovah, have mercy upon us;|
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
| ||Our soul is exceedingly filled|
With the scoffing of those that are at ease,
And with the contempt of the proud.
