Psalm: 24
Iconography: David, on his knees, looks upwards, My eyes are always to the lord. His hands present an open offering gesture, while his soul is gently drawn from his mouth by Christ: To you lord I have lifted up my soul...guard my soul and deliver me. Christ inclines his head with a gesture of blessing: Have regard for me and have mercy on me.
