Psalm for Sunday - Restore your Vineyard, Lord
It took root and filled the land;
The mountains were covered with its shade.
But now you have broken down the walls of the vineyard
so that all who pass by pick its grapes.
Return to us, O God Almighty!
Look down from heaven and see our plight!
Watch over this vine,
the plant your right hand has tended.
Your vine is cut down and scorched with fire;
Your name is mocked.
Let your hand rest upon us once more;
revive us, so that we might bring glory to your name.
Restore us, O God Almighty;
make your face shine upon us, so that we may be saved.
