1 A Song of the Ascents.
To you I raise my eyes, You who are enthroned in the heavens.
2 As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, And the eyes of a servant girl to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to Jehovah our God Until he shows us favor.
3 Show us favor, O Jehovah, show us favor, For we have had our full share of contempt.
4 We have had our full share of ridicule from the self-assured And the contempt of the arrogant.
