Songs for the Sojourn: Sojourning in a Culture of Contempt

June 23, 2019

SCRIPTURE: Psalm 123

A Song of Ascents.

[1] To you I lift up my eyes,

O you who are enthroned in the heavens!

[2] Behold, as the eyes of servants

look to the hand of their master,

as the eyes of a maidservant

to the hand of her mistress,

so our eyes look to the LORD our God,

till he has mercy upon us.

[3] Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us,

for we have had more than enough of contempt.

[4] Our soul has had more than enough

of the scorn of those who are at ease,

of the contempt of the proud. (ESV)
