Psalms 123

(A song for worship.)

A Prayer for Mercy

1Our Lord and our God,

I turn my eyes to you,

on your throne in heaven.

2Servants look to their master,

but we will look to you,

until you have mercy on us.

3Please have mercy, Lord!

We have been insulted

more than we can stand,

4and we can't take more abuse

from those proud,

conceited people.
