Psalm 80. Qui regis Israel.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Sixteenth Day - Morning Prayer.
  1. Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, leading Joseph like a flock; *
    shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim.
  2. In the presence of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, *
    stir up your strength and come to help us.
  3. Restore us, O God of hosts; *
    show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
  4. O Lord God of hosts, *
    how long will you be angered despite the prayers of your people?
  5. You have fed them with the bread of tears; *
    you have given them bowls of tears to drink.
  6. You have made us the derision of our neighbors, *
    and our enemies laugh us to scorn.
  7. Restore us, O God of hosts; *
    show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
  8. You have brought a vine out of Egypt; *
    you cast out the nations and planted it.
  9. You prepared the ground for it; *
    it took root and filled the land.
  10. The mountains were covered by its shadow *
    and the towering cedar trees by its boughs.
  11. You stretched out its tendrils to the Sea *
    and its branches to the River.
  12. Why have you broken down its wall, *
    so that all who pass by pluck off its grapes?
  13. The wild boar of the forest has ravaged it, *
    and the beasts of the field have grazed upon it.
  14. Turn now, O God of hosts, look down from heaven; behold and tend this vine; *
    preserve what your right hand has planted.
  15. They burn it with fire like rubbish; *
    at the rebuke of your countenance let them perish.
  16. Let your hand be upon the man of your right hand, *
    the son of man you have made so strong for yourself.
  17. And so will we never turn away from you; *
    give us life, that we may call upon your Name.
  18. Restore us, O Lord God of hosts; *
    show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved.
