Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19 (NRSV)
We shall be saved
Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel,
you who lead
Joseph like a flock!
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth
before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh.
Stir up your might,
and come to save us!
Restore us, O God;
let your face shine,
that we may be saved.
O Lord God of hosts,
how long will you be
angry with your people's prayers?
You have fed them with the bread of tears,
and given them tears to drink in full measure.
You make us the scorn of
our enemies laugh among themselves.
Restore us, O God
let your face shine, that we may be saved. ...
your hand be upon the one at your right hand,
the one whom you made strong
Then we will never turn back from you;
give us life, and
we will call on your name.
Restore us, O Lord God of hosts;
face shine, that we may be saved.
