Our eyes on the LORD
O our God, will You not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You.”
My eyes are ever toward the Lord, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net.
I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.
Unto You I lift up my eyes, O You who dwell in the heavens. Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God, Until He has mercy on us.
But my eyes are upon You, O God the Lord; In You I take refuge; Do not leave my soul destitute.
