Response: God of hosts, bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hear us, shine forth from your cherubim throne.
O Lord, rouse up your might, come to our aid.
God of hosts, bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

God of hosts, turn again, we implore you; look down from heaven and see,
O visit this vine and protect what your right hand has sown.
God of hosts, bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

Lay your hand on the man you have chosen, the man you have given your strength.
O Lord, fill us with life, we call on your name.
God of hosts, bring us back, lead us and we shall be saved.

God of hosts bring us back; lead us and we shall be saved.

O shepherd of Israel, hear us, shine forth from your cherubim throne.

O Lord, rouse up your might, come to our aid.

God of hosts bring us back; lead us and we shall be saved.

God of hosts, turn again, we implore you; look down from heaven and see, O visit this vine and protect what your right hand has sown.

God of hosts bring us back; lead us and we shall be saved.

Lay your hand on the man you have chosen, the man you have given your strength, O Lord, fill us with life, we call on your name.

God of hosts bring us back; lead us and we shall be saved.
