God-Enthroned, be revealed in splendor
as you ride upon the cherubim!
How perfectly you lead us, a people set free.
Loving shepherd of Israel—listen to our hearts’ cry!
Shine forth from your throne of dazzling light.
In the sight of Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh,
stir up your mighty power in full display before our eyes.
Break through and reveal yourself by coming to our rescue.
Revive us, O God! Let your beaming face shine upon us
with the sunrise rays of glory;
then nothing will be able to stop us.
O God, the mighty Commander of Angel Armies,
how much longer will you smolder in anger?
How much longer will you be disgusted with your people
even when they pray?
You have fed us with sorrow and grief
and made us drink our tears by the bowlful.
You’ve made us a thorn in the side of all the neighboring lands,
and now they just laugh at us with their mocking scorn.
Come back, come back, O God, and restore us!
You are the Commander of Angel Armies.
Let your beaming face shine upon us with the sunrise rays of glory,
and then nothing will be able to stop us!
