A Psalm of the Sons of Korah

Lord, thou didst signal favors show

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Lord, Thou didst signal favours show,
to thine afflicted land;
Jacob's captivity Thou didst
bring back with mighty hand.
2 Yea Thou thy people didst forgive,
their great iniquities;
And all their aggravated sins
didst cover from thine eyes. (Selah)

3 Thou all thine anger didst withdraw,
which on them heavy lay;
And from the fierceness of thy wrath,
didst wholly turn away.
4 O God of our salvation, now
return us by thy grace;
And tow'rds us thy displeasure sore,
O cause Thou quite to cease.

5 Or shall thine anger thus endure,
against us without end?
And ev'n to generations all,
wilt thou thy wrath extend?
6 O wilt thou not return again,
and us revive, that we
Thy saved people greatly may
rejoice again in Thee?

7 O great JEHOVAH now to us,
thy tender mercy show;
And thy salvation as a gift
of grace, on us bestow.

[2 Part]
8 I'll hear what God the LORD will speak:
speak to his people peace,
And to his saints; but let not them
return to foolishness.
9 Sure, his salvation now is nigh,
to them who Him revere;
That glory may adorn our land,
and happily dwell here.

10 Mercy and truth have sweet access,
and with great pleasure meet;
And perfect righteousness and peace,
with mutual kisses greet.
11 Truth and uprightness on the earth,
out of men's hearts, shall spring;
And righteousness from heav'n look down,
descend and blessings bring,

12 Yea ev'ry good thing will the LORD
give to us bounteously;
And then our land shall her increase,
yield with a rich supply.
13 Before Him righteousness shall go,
and all his paths prepare;
And in the way his steps will guide,
and place with happy care.
