The Book of Psalms
1 – To thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven.
2 – Behold as the eyes of the servants are on the hands of their masters, As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until he have mercy on us.
3 – Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us: for we are greatly filled with contempt.
4 – For our soul is greatly filled: we are a reproach to the rich, and contempt to the proud.
