O thou that dwellest in the heav'ns

O thou that dwellest in the heavens

Tune: PETERBOROUGH (Harrison)
Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O thou that dwellest in the heavens,
I lift mine eyes to thee.
2 Behold, as servants’ eyes are turned
their masters’ hand to see,
and as upon her mistress' hand
a handmaid’s eyes attend,
our eyes are on the Lord our God,
till he us mercy send.

3 O Lord, be gracious to us,
unto us gracious be;
because replenished with contempt
exceedingly are we.
4 Our soul is filled with scorn of those
that at their ease abide,
and with the insolent contempt
of those that swell in pride.
