Last Sunday we looked at Psalm 123 in our continuing series on the Psalms of Ascents, we are calling “Songs for the Sojourn.”
Listen to Pastor Steve Brown read Psalm 123
Listen to our Pastor Elliot Grudem preach on Psalm 123
Read Psalm 123 from the ESV
Sing along with us in Psalm 123 –
1 O thou that dwellest in the heav’ns,
I lift mine eyes to thee.
Behold, as servants’ eyes attend
Their master’s hand to see,
2 As maids do watch their mistress’ hand,
So our eyes now attend
Upon the Lord our God, until
To us he mercy send.
3 O Lord, be gracious unto us.
To us now gracious be;
For filled with scorning and contempt
Exceedingly are we.
4 Our soul is filled with scorn from those
That at their ease abide,
And with the insolent contempt
Of those that swell in pride.
Words: 1912 Psalter
