Psalm 80:1-7, 17-19

Listen!
Leading God, guiding our wayward community,
Your power above the angels,
Light the way of your people everywhere.
Engage your muscle,
Save us!

Restore us, God!
Light our way!
Save us!

God of heaven’s armies,
How long will you spurn our prayers?
You’ve us eat bread baked in sorrow;
You’ve made is drink our tears three times a day.
We are routed by our neighbors
And our enemies laugh at us.

Restore us, God!
Light our way!
Save us!

If you will only raise up a deliverer
And certify that you are with him,
We will not desert.
Revive us, and we’ll acknowledge you.

Restore us, God of heaven’s armies!
Light our way!
Save us!
