Psalm 85


1 O Lord, thou favour’d hast thy land:
Jacob’s captivity.
2 Thou hast brought back: thou pardon’d hast
thy folk’s iniquity:
thou hast close cover’d all their sin.
3 Thy wrath away all cast
thou hast: from fierceness of thine ire
thyself return’d thou hast.

4 Convert us back, O thou, the God
of our salvation:
and toward us cause thou to cease
thine indignation.
5 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 rejoice shall so.
7 Show us thy mercy, Lord; on us
thy saving health bestow.
8 I’ll hear what God the Lord will speak:
for to his people peace
he’ll speak, and to his saints: lest they
return to foolishness.

9 Surely near 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 earth: and righteousness
from heaven looking is.

12 Yea what is good the Lord shall give:
and yield her fruit our land.
13 Justice shall ‘fore him go: and make
her steps i’th way to stand.
