SUGGESTED TUNE:  THE SOLID ROCK
This is the meter for the hymn "My Hope Is Built" aka "The Solid Rock"

1.  Shepherd of Israel, hear our cry,
    You who lead Joseph like a flock.
    Enthroned on cherubs, show yourself
    To Ephraim, Benj'min, Manasseh.
    Show us your might, come and save us.
    Almighty God, restore us all,
    Have mercy on us and save us.
2.  Lord God Almighty, how long will
    You angry be with all our prayers?
    Our tears have been our food and drink.
    Our neighbors pick a fight with us,
    Our enemies insult us sore.
    Almighty God, restore us all,
    Have mercy on us and save us.
