Hear us, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock;1 you who sit enthroned between the cherubim,2 shine forth
before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.3 Awaken4 your might; come and save us.53
Restore6 us,7 O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.84
O LORD God Almighty, how long9 will your anger smolder10 against the prayers of your people?
You have fed them with the bread of tears;11 you have made them drink tears by the bowlful.126
You have made us a source of contention to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us.13
