Description

Text from The Book of Common Prayer (1928), Psalm 80:3-10, 14-19 (alt.)

Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts; show us the light of thy countenance, and we shall be whole. O Lord of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry with thy people that prayeth? Thou feedest them with the bread of tears, and givest them plenteousness of tears to drink. Thou hast made us a very strife unto our neighbors; and our enemies laugh us to scorn. Turn us again, thou God of hosts; show us the light of thy countenance and we shall be whole. Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt; thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. Thou madest room for it; and when it had taken root it filled the land. The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedar trees. Turn thee again, thou God of hosts; look down from heaven, behold, and visit this vine. And the place of the vineyard that thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest so strong for thyself. It is burnt with fire, and cut down; and they shall perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 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. And so will we not go back from thee: O let us live, and we shall call upon thy Name. Turn us again, thou God of hosts; show us the light of thy countenance and we shall be whole.
