We’re overdosed on insults
We depend on the Lord
Road trip song1 I look up to you, LORD,
As you rule from the sky.
2 Slave 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.
3 Be kind to us, LORD
Show us your love.
We have had our fill of contempt.
4 We’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.
