View Lyrics
Great Shepherd who leads all Your people in love,
where angels are dwelling, You reign from above.
In might come redeem us, Your people restore,
and we shall be saved when Your face shines once more.

Make haste, Lord, to hear us and pity our woes,
affliction our portion, despised by our foes.
O Lord God Almighty, in mercy restore,
and we shall be saved when Your face shines once more.

A place for Your people Your hand has prepared;
Your vine, deeply rooted, bore fruit in Your care.
Its branches like cedars, majestic and free,
spread over the mountains from river to sea.

Your vineyard lies barren, no shelter it knows;
defenseless, the victim and spoil of her foes.
Return, Lord, we pray; in Your mercy, restore
the vine that is trampled to blossom once more.

When You have revived us, Your name we will praise,
and follow, unfailing, to walk in Your ways.
O Lord God Almighty, in mercy restore,
and we shall be saved when Your face shines once more.
