Psalm 80:1-7 New International Version

A Prayer for Restoration

80 1  [1]Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth 2  before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. 3  Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. 4  How long, Lord God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people? 5  You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful. 6  You have made us an object of derision[2] to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us. 7  Restore us, God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.
