A Prayer for Restoration

For the choir director: according toThe Lilies.”a A testimony of Asaph.b A psalm.

1Listen, Shepherd of Israel,

who leads Joseph like a flock;c

You who sit enthroned on the cherubim,d

rise upe

2before Ephraim,

Benjamin, and Manasseh.f, g

Rally Your power and come to save us.h

3Restore us, God;

look on us with favor,

and we will be saved.i

4LORD God of Hosts,

how long will You be angry

with Your people’s prayers?j

5You fed them the bread of tears

and gave them a full measurek

of tears to drink.l

6You make us quarrel with our neighbors;

our enemies make fun of us.m

7Restore us, God of Hosts;

look on us with favor, and we will be saved.n

8You uprooted a vine from Egypt;

You drove out the nations and planted it.o

9You cleared a place for it;

it took root and filled the land.p

10The mountains were covered by its shade,

and the mighty cedarsq with its branches.r

11It sent out sprouts toward the Seas

and shoots toward the River.t, u

12Why have You broken down its walls

so that all who pass by pick its fruit?v

13The boar from the forest tears it

and creatures of the field feed on it.w

14Return, God of Hosts.x

Look down from heaven and see;

take care of this vine,

15the rooty Your right hand has planted,

the shootz that You made strong for Yourself.aa

16It was cut down and burned up;ab

theyac perish at the rebuke of Your

17Let Your hand be with the man at Your right hand,

with the son of man

You have made strong for

18Then we will not turn away from You;

revive us, and we will call on Your

19Restore us, Yahweh, the God of Hosts;ag

look on us with favor, and we will be saved.ah
