Psalm 80 

Show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved

Hear , O shepherd of Israel, you that led Joseph like a flock;

shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim,

before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.

Stir up your mighty strength and come to our salvation.

You brought a vine out of Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it.

You made room around it, and when it had taken root, it filled the land.

The hills were covered with its shadow and the cedars of God by its boughs.

It stretched out its branches to the sea and its tendrils to the River.

Why then have you broken down its wall, so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?

The wild boar out of the wood tears it off, and all the insects of the field devour it.

Turn again, O God of hosts, look down from heaven and behold;

cherish this vine which your right hand has planted,

and the branch that you made so strong for yourself.

Let those who burn it with fire, who cut it down,

perish at the rebuke of your countenance.

Let your hand be upon the man at your right hand,

the son of man you made so strong for yourself.

And so we will not go back from you;

give us life, and we shall call upon your name.

Show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved
