Readings for the 4th Sunday of Advent: Psalm 80.1-7

This Sunday’s Psalm reading is Psalm 80:1-7 (NRSV):

Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, 
you who lead Joseph like a flock! 
You who are enthroned upon the cherubim, shine forth 
2 before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh. 
Stir up your might, 
and come to save us! 
3 Restore us, O God; 
let your face shine, that we may be saved. 
4 O Lord God of hosts, 
how long will you be angry with your people’s prayers? 
5 You have fed them with the bread of tears, 
and given them tears to drink in full measure. 
6 You make us the scorn of our neighbors; 
our enemies laugh among themselves. 
7 Restore us, O God of hosts; 
let your face shine, that we may be saved.
