1 Hear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you that led Joseph like a flock;
2 Shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim,
before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.
3 Stir up your mighty strength
and come to our salvation.
4 Turn us again, O God;
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
5 O Lord God of hosts,
how long will you be angry at your peoples prayer?
6 You feed them with the bread of tears;
you give them abundance of tears to drink.
7 You have made us the derision of our neighbours,
and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
16 Cherish this vine which your right hand has planted,
and the branch that you made so strong for yourself.
17 Let those who burnt it with fire, who cut it down,
perish at the rebuke of your countenance.
18 Let your hand be upon the man at your right hand,
the son of man you made so strong for yourself.
