Psalme. 123.

VNto thee lift I vp mine eies: O thou that dwellest in the heauens.

Behold, euen as the eies of seruants looke vnto the hand of their maisters: and as the eies of a maiden vnto the hand of hir maistresse: euen so our eies waite vpon the Lord our God, vntill hee haue mercie vpon vs.

Haue mercie vpon vs, O Lord, haue mercie vpon vs: for we are vtterlie despised.

Our soule is filled with the scornefull reproofe of the wealthie: and with the despitefulnesse of the proud.
