Restore Us, Revive Us

Psalm 80

For the music director, on “Lilies,”[a] a testimony: a psalm of Asaph.
Give ear, Shepherd of Israel,
You who lead Joseph like a flock.
You who are enthroned upon the cheruvim, shine forth!
Before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh,
stir up Your might, and come to save us.
O God, restore us, make Your face shine,
and we will be saved.

Adonai-Tzva’ot, how long will You be angry
with the prayer of Your people?
You have fed them the bread of tears
and made them drink a measure of tears.
You make us a contention to our neighbors,
and our enemies mock as they please.
Elohei-Tzva’ot, restore us, and make Your face shine,
and we will be saved.

You pulled out a vine from Egypt.
You drove out nations and planted it.
10 You cleared a place for it,
    and it took deep root and filled the land.
11 The mountains were covered by its shade,
the mighty cedars with its branches.
12 It sent out its branches to the sea,
and its shoots to the river.
13 Why have You broken down its fences,
so all who pass by the way pick its fruit?
14 A boar from the forest ravages it,
whatever moves in the field feeds on it.
15 Elohei-Tzva’ot, please return!
Look down from heaven and see!
Now take care of this vine—
16 the shoot Your right hand planted—
the son You strengthened for Yourself.
17 It is burned with fire, it is cut down.
They perish from the rebuke of Your face.
18 Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand—
the son of man
    You made strong for Yourself.
19 Then we will not turn away from You.
Revive us, and we will call on Your Name.
20 Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot, restore us.
Make Your face shine, and we will be saved.
