A song for those who go up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord.
1 I look up and pray to you.
Your throne is in heaven. 2 Slaves depend on their masters.
A female slave depends on the woman she works for.
In the same way, we depend on the Lord our God.
We wait for him to have mercy on us.
3 Lord, have mercy on us. Have mercy on us,
because people haven’t stopped making fun of us. 4 We have had to put up with a lot from those who are proud.
They were always laughing at us.
