Psalm 80 cries out for salvation by appealing for two actions on God’s part: listen and look. Hear our cries, and make your face shine on us! Asaph knows that if the eyes and ears of God are turned to His people, God’s faithfulness to His covenant will cause Him to bring deliverance. He is convinced that salvation is the Lord’s doing: it is the light of God’s face that renders His people visible, and it is the gift of life from God that enables them to call out so that God can hear them. So come this morning to present yourselves to God’s gaze, and let your cries rise up to His ears, that He might restore us and save us.
