  1. For the conductor, to the roses, a testimony, of Asaph a song.
  2. O Shepherd of Israel, hearken, He Who leads Joseph like flocks, He Who dwells between the cherubim, appear.
  3. Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh arouse Your might, and it is for You to save us.
  4. O God, return us; cause Your countenance to shine and we shall be saved.
  5. O Lord God of Hosts, how long have You been wroth at Your people’s prayer?
  6. You have fed them bread of tears, and You have given them to drink tears in large measure.
  7. You have made us the target of strife to our neighbors, and our enemies mock themselves.
  8. O God of Hosts, return us; cause Your countenance to shine and we shall be saved.
  9. You uprooted a vine from Egypt; You drove out nations and planted it.
  10. You cleared [a place] before it; it took root and filled the land.
  11. Mountains were covered [by] its shade, and its branches were great cedars.
  12. It sent forth its branches until the sea, and to the river its tender shoots.
  13. Why have You breached its fences, so that all wayfarers have plucked its fruit?
  14. The boar from the forest ravages it, and all that move in the field feed on it.
  15. O God of Hosts, return now; look from heaven and see, and be mindful of this vine,
  16. And of the foundation that Your right hand has planted and over the son You have strengthened for Yourself.
  17. Burned with fire [and] cut off; from the rebuke of Your countenance they perish.
  18. May Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, upon the son of man whom You strengthened for Yourself.
  19. And let us not withdraw from You; grant us life, and we shall call out in Your name.
  20. O Lord God of Hosts, return us; cause Your countenance to shine, and we shall be saved.
