I lift my gaze to you,
Commander of heaven!
As the man-servant watches his master’s hand,
As the maid-servant watches her mistress’s hand,
So we look to God, until God relieves us.
Relieve us, O God, relieve us!
For we have been despised enough!
We’ve had more than enough
Of being mocked by the rich
And of being scorned by the powerful.
