A Prayer for Mercy 123 1LORD, I look up to you, up to heaven, where you rule. 2As a servant depends on his master, as a maid depends on her mistress, so we will keep looking to you, O LORD our God, until you have mercy on us. 3Be merciful to us, LORD, be merciful; we have been treated with so much contempt. 4We have been mocked too long by the rich and scorned by proud oppressors.
