Psalm 80. Qui regis Israel.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Sixteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. HEAR, O thou Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; *
    show thyself also, thou that sittest upon the Cherubim.
  2. Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, *
    stir up thy strength, and come and help us.
  3. Turn us again, O God; *
    show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.
  4. O Lord God of hosts, *
    how long wilt thou be angry with thy people that prayeth?
  5. Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, *
    and givest them plenteousness of tears to drink.
  6. Thou hast made us a very strife unto our neighbours, *
    and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
  7. Turn us again, thou God of hosts; *
    show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.
  8. Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; *
    thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it.
  9. Thou madest room for it; *
    and when it had taken root, it filled the land.
  10. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, *
    and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedar-trees.
  11. She stretched out her branches unto the sea, *
    and her boughs unto the River.
  12. Why hast thou then broken down her hedge, *
    that all they that go by pluck off her grapes?
  13. The wild boar out of the wood doth root it up, *
    and the wild beasts of the field devour it.
  14. Turn thee again, thou God of hosts, look down from heaven, *
    behold, and visit this vine;
  15. And the place of the vineyard that thy right hand hath planted, *
    and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself.
  16. It is burnt with fire, and cut down; *
    and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance.
  17. Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, *
    and upon the son of man, whom thou madest so strong for thine own self.
  18. And so will not we go back from thee: *
    O let us live, and we shall call upon thy Name.
  19. Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; *
    show the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole.
