Psalm 80

Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, you that led Joseph like a flock :
 you that are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine out in glory;
Before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh :
 stir up your power, and come to save us.
Restore us again, O Lord of hosts :
 show us the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
O Lord God of hosts :
 how long will you be angry at your people’s prayer?
You have fed them with the bread of tears :
 and given them tears to drink in good measure.
You have made us the victim of our neighbours :
 and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
Restore us again, O Lord of hosts :
 show us the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
You brought a vine out of Egypt :
 you drove out the nations, and planted it in.
You cleared the ground before it :
 and it struck root and filled the land.
The hills were covered with its shadow :
 and its boughs were like the boughs of the great cedars.
It stretched out its branches to the sea :
 and its tender shoots to the Great River.
Why then have you broken down its walls :
 so that every passer-by can pluck its fruit?
The wild boar out of the woods roots it up :
 and the locusts from the wild places devour it.
Turn to us again, O Lord of hosts :
 look down from heaven, and see.
Bestow your care upon this vine :
 the stock which your own right hand has planted.
As for those that burn it with fire and cut it down :
 let them perish at the rebuke of your countenance.
Let your power rest on the man at your right hand :
 on that son of man whom you made so strong for yourself.
And so we shall not turn back from you :
 give us life, and we will call upon your name.
Restore us again, O Lord of hosts :
 show us the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
