Psalm: 122
Iconography: David raises his eyes to Christ in the heavenly sphere above, pointing to him with one hand and pointing to the gathered people with the other hand: I have lifted up my eyes to you: who dwell in heaven. The people are looking at David. The woman and man touch hands: as the eyes of servants are on the hands of their masters. As the eyes of the handmaid are on the hands of her mistress: so are our eyes [look] to the lord .
