Psalm 80

posted 1 Sep 2014, 05:36 by Mark Broomhead

1Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, •
you that led Joseph like a flock;

2Shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim, •
before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh.

3Stir up your mighty strength •
and come to our salvation.

4Turn us again, O God; •
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

5O Lord God of hosts, •
how long will you be angry at your people’s prayer?

6You feed them with the bread of tears; •
you give them abundance of tears to drink.

7You have made us the derision of our neighbours •
and our enemies la
ugh us to scorn.


8Turn us again, O God of hosts; •
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.

9You brought a vine out of Egypt; •
you drove out the nations and planted it.

10You made room around it, •
and when it had taken root, it filled the land.

11The hills were covered with its shadow •
and the cedars of God by its boughs.

12It stretched out its branches to the Sea •
and its tendrils to the River.

13Why then have you broken down its wall, •
so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?

14The wild boar out of the wood tears it off, •
and all the insects of the field devour it.

15Turn again, O God of hosts, •
look down from heaven and behold;

16Cherish this vine which your right hand has planted, •
and the branch that you made so strong for yourself.

17Let those who burnt it with fire, who cut it down, •
perish at the rebuke of your countenance.

18Let your hand be upon the man at your right hand, •
the son of man you made so strong for yourself.

19And so will we not go back from you; •
give us life, and we shall call upon your name.

20Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; •
show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.



Faithful shepherd of your people,
as we look for the light of your countenance,
restore in us the image of your glory
and graft us into the risen life of your Son,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
