To Thee, O Lord, I lift mine eyes,
O Thou enthroned above the skies;
As servants watch their master’s hand,
Or maidens by their mistress stand;
So to the Lord our eyes we raise,
Until His mercy He displays.

Refrain

To Thee, O Lord, I lift mine eyes,
O Thou enthroned above the skies.

O Lord, our God, Thy mercy show,
For man’s contempt and scorn we know;
Reproach and shame Thy saints endure
From wicked men who dwell secure;
Man’s proud contempt and scorn we know;
O Lord, our God, Thy mercy show.

Refrain
