A Prayer for Restoration

Look, and behold bour reproach!

2 cOur inheritance has been turned over to aliens,

And our houses to foreigners.

3 We have become orphans and waifs,

Our mothers are like dwidows.

4 We pay for the water we drink,

6 fWe have given our hand gto the Egyptians

And the hAssyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
