Psalm 123

1] Unto you I lift up my eyes, O you who in your heaven dwell

2] As the eyes of a lover looks to the face of their beloved
        so do our eyes look to you, Heavenly Queen,
        until you grant us our every true wish, the true blessing

3] You will favour us, O mother, you will favour us: even before the greatness of their contempt for us

4] Scorn for us fills them, in our misfortune, as they know easy days
