Psalm 123

A song to sing as we climb.

Servants of the Lord

1 I look up to you, God,

as you rule from your throne in heaven.

2 Yes, our eyes look up to the Lord our God.

We want him to be kind to us, so we wait for his help.

We wait like servants who want help from their master.

3 Please be kind to us, Lord. Please forgive us.

People have insulted us more and more!

4 We have had too much!

Proud people laugh at us.

and they insult us.

Please stop them!

123:4Sometimes people think and say things that are not kind. They are proud and they think that they are more important than they are. Things that people say against us may hurt us. Then we should pray for God to help us. God is powerful and he is kind.
