Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

PLXXXVb. O Lord thou favour'd hast thy land

1 O Lord thou favour'd hast thy land
Jacob's captivity;
2 Thou hast brought back, thou pardoned hast
Thy folks iniquity,
thou hast close covered all their sin. Selah.
3 Thou hast thy wrath off cast;
Thou from the fierceness of thine ire
Thy self returned hast.

4 Turn us again, O thou the God
Of our salvation?
And towards us cause thou to cease
Thine indignation.
Wilt thou be angry still with us
For evermore? what shall
Thine anger be by thee drawn out
To generations all?

6 Wilt thou not us revive? in thee
Thy folk rejoyce shall so;
7 Shew us thy mercy, Lord on us
Thy saving health below.

8 I'll hear what God the Lord will say,
For surely he'll speak peace
To's folk and saints, but let not them
Return to foolishness.
9 Sure nigh to them that do him fear
Is his salvation;
That glory may within our land
Have habitation.

10 Mercy and truth do jointly meet,
Justice and peace do kiss;
11 Truth springs from th' earth and righteousness
From heaven looking is.
12 Yea what is good the Lord shall give;
Our land yield her increase.
13 Justice before him go and in
the way her feet shall place.
