When we fall into sin and see the sad result of our failure, we call upon the Lord to restore us and revive us again.

KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 80:

     1 To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth, A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth. 2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us. 3 Turn us again, O God, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved. 4 O LORD God of hosts, how long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? 5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure. 6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours: and our enemies laugh among themselves. 7 Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

     8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt: thou hast cast out the heathen, and planted it. 9 Thou preparedst room before it, and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land. 10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars. 11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches unto the river. 12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her? 13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it. 14 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts: look down from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine; 15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself. 16 It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 17 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. 18 So will not we go back from thee: quicken us, and we will call upon thy name. 19 Turn us again, O LORD God of hosts, cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.(KJV)

1. Thy table I approach, 
Dear Savior, hear my prayer; 
Oh, let no unrepented sin 
Prove hurtful to me there! 

2. Lo, I confess my sins 
And mourn their wretched bands; 
A contrite heart is sure to find 
Forgiveness at Thy hands. 

3. Thy body and Thy blood, 
Once slain and shed for me, 
Are taken here with mouth and soul, 
In blest reality. 

4. Search not how this takes place, 
This wondrous mystery; 
God can accomplish vastly more 
Than seemeth plain to thee. 

5. Vouchsafe, O blessed Lord, 
That earth and hell combined 
May ne’er about this Sacrament 
Raise doubt within my mind. 

6. Oh, may I never fail 
To thank Thee day and night 
For Thy true body and true blood, 
O God, my Peace and Light!
