Oh, giveear, 1Shepherd of Israel, You who lead2Joseph like a flock ; You who 3are enthroned above the cherubim, shineforth !
2Before4Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh, 5stir up Your power And come to save us!
O God, 6restore us And 7cause Your face to shine upon us, aand we will be saved.
O 8LORDGod of hosts, 9Howlong will You bbe angry with the prayer of Your people ?
You have fed them with the 10bread of tears, And You have made them to drinktears in clargemeasure.
You make us dan object of contention11to our neighbors, And our enemieslaugh among themselves.
O God of hosts, restore us And cause Your face to shine upon us, eand we will be saved.
You removed a 12vine from Egypt ; You 13drove out the fnations and 14planted it.
You 15cleared the ground before it, And it 16tookdeeproot and filled the land.
The mountains were covered with its shadow, And gthe cedars of God with its 17boughs.
It was sending out its branches18to the sea And its shoots to the River.
12Why have You 19brokendown its hhedges, So that all who pass that waypick its fruit?
A boar from the forest20eats it away And whatevermoves in the fieldfeeds on it.
O God of hosts, 21turnagainnow, we beseech You; 22Lookdown from heaven and see, and takecare of thisvine,
Even the i23shootwhich Your righthand has planted, And on the json whom You have kstrengthened for Yourself.
It is 24burned with fire, it is cutdown ; They perish at the 25rebuke of Your countenance.
Let 26Your hand be upon the man of Your righthand, Upon the son of man whom You 27madestrong for Yourself.
Then we shall not 28turnback from You; 29Revive us, and we will call upon Your name.
O LORDGod of hosts, 30restore us; Cause Your face to shine upon us, land we will be saved.
