Psalm 80

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