Ad te levavi oculos meos, qui habitas
in caelis.
To Thee have I lifted up my eyes, who dwellest in heaven.V. Ecce sicut oculi servorum in manibus dominorum suorum.
V.: Behold as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters.V. Et sicut oculi ancillae in manibus dominae suae: ita oculi nostri ad Dominum Deum nostrum, donec misereatur nostri.V.: And as the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes unto the Lord our God, until He have mercy on us.
V. Miserere nobis, Domine, miserere nobis.

V.: Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us.

Psalm 122: 1-3

01 Vers toi j'ai les yeux levés, vers toi qui es au ciel.
02 Comme les yeux de l'esclave vers la main de son maître, + comme les yeux de la servante vers la main de sa maîtresse, * nos yeux, levés vers le Seigneur notre Dieu, attendent sa pitié.
03 Pitié pour nous, Seigneur, pitié pour nous : notre âme est rassasiée de mépris.
