349. O Thou Who the Shepherd of Israel Art

1 O thou who the Shepherd of Israel art,
give ear to our pray'r and thy favor impart;
thou leader of Joseph, thou guide of his way,
'mid cherubim dwelling, thy glory display.

2 In Ephraim's, Manasseh's and Benjamin's sight,
O come thou and save us; awake in thy might.
O God, give us favor, restore to thy grace;
and then we shall live in the light of thy face.

3 From Egypt's dark border a vine thou didst take;
destroying the heathen didst room for it make.
Where planted it grew at thy sov'reign command,
with roots deeply set and boughs filling the land.

4 The axe hews it down; it is burned in the fire;
they perish, rebuked in thy terrible ire.
O lay then thy hand on the Man of thy might,
The Son of Man made to stand strong in thy sight.

5 No more shall we wander, delighting in shame;
revive us, O Lord, we will call on thy name.
O Lord God of hosts, us restore to thy grace,
and then we shall live in the light of thy face.
