Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 123 Ad te levavi oculos meos

Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.

Behold, even as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress, even so our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, until he have mercy upon us.

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us;
for we are utterly despised.

Our soul is filled with the scornful reproof of the wealthy, and with the despitefulness of the proud.
