Restore Us (Psalm 80)

Restore us, restore us, O Lord God of Hosts
Let Your face shine upon us; that we may be saved

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel
You lead Your people like a flock
Shine forth, enthroned upon the Cherubim
Stir up Your might; come and save us

Restore us, restore us, O Lord God of Hosts
Let Your face shine upon us; that we may be saved

How long, Lord God, will You be angry?
You have fed us with the bread of tears
You have made us the scorn of our neighbors
And our enemies, they laugh among themselves

Restore us, restore us, O Lord God of Hosts
Let Your face shine upon us; that we may be saved

Like a vine, You planted us among the nations
Our branches spread out across the sea
Now our walls have all been broken down
And we’re devoured by the beasts of the field

Restore us, restore us, O Lord God of Hosts
Let Your face shine upon us; that we may be saved

Return, O God, look from Heaven
See the vine You planted with Your hand
Let Your hand be upon Your chosen ones
Give life, and we’ll call upon Your name

Restore us, restore us, O Lord God of Hosts
Let Your face shine upon us; that we may be saved

A Few Words About This CD...

Presented to all who hunger and thirst for the Presence of God.
Drink deeply of these mysteries.
The songs are little, but the truths they contain are not.
Every song presented here should be thought of in its Eucharistic context.
May God grant us light as we contemplate.

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
