The eyes of the servants look to their masters hands to see what their masters want to order them to do. Do we look expectantly at God?
We await his commands and we also await his mercy. The poor have rich scorning masters sometimes. They're at ease, they have contempt for people. But we have a good master, the master of all life and he is loving toward his servants.
1Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
2Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us.
3Have mercy upon us, O LORD, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
4Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, and with the contempt of the proud.
