We’re overdosed on insults
We depend on the Lord
Road trip song1I look up to you, LORD,
As you rule from the sky.
2Slave men depend on their masters,
Slave women on mistresses, too.
But we look to the LORD our God,
And wait for the kindness to come.
3Be kind to us, LORD
Show us your love.
We have had our fill of contempt.
4We’ve spent more than enough time
Suffering insults and disgust
From the likes of the lazy and the proud.
The subtitle wasn’t part of the original psalm. Psalms 120-134 are called songs of ascent, possibly because Jewish pilgrims sang these songs while traveling up into the Judean hills to celebrate a Jewish holiday in Jerusalem.
