(Based on Psalm 123)
God, we lift up our eyes, you who are enthroned in the heavens!
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 you LORD our God, until you have mercy upon us.
God, have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us, for we have had more than enough of contempt.
God, our soul has had more than its fill of the scorn of those who are at ease, of the contempt of the proud.
Lord, we look to you for your peace, to live in your peace is our desire, Your peace provides us with hope and light.
God we look to you, our hope is in you, you are our light.
