1 Lord, Thou hast been favourable unto Thy land: Thou hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.
2 Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people: Thou hast covered all their sin.
3 Thou has taken away all Thy wrath: Thou hast turned Thyself from the fierceness of Thine anger.
4 Turn us, O God of our salvation: and cause Thine anger toward us to cease.
5 Wilt Thou be angry with us forever: wilt Thou draw out Thine anger to all generations.
6 Wilt Thou not revive us again: that Thy people may rejoice in Thee.
7 Show us Thy mercy O Lord: and grant us Thy salvation.
8 I will hear what God the Lord will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people and to His saints, but let them not turn again to folly.
9 Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him: that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth are met together: righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth: and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yea, the Lord shall give that which is good: and our land shall yield her increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before Him: and shall set us in the way of His steps.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be: world without end
