|Prayer for Gods Mercy Upon the Nation|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.|
| ||JEHOVAH, thou hast been favorable unto thy land;|
Thou hast brought 1 back the captivity of Jacob.
| ||Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of thy people;|
Thou hast covered all their sin. [Selah
| ||Thou hast taken away all thy wrath;|
Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
| ||Turn us, O God of our salvation,|
And cause thine indignation toward us to cease.
| ||Wilt thou be angry with us for ever?|
Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
| ||Wilt thou not quicken us again,|
That thy people may rejoice in thee?
| ||Show us thy lovingkindness, O Jehovah,|
And grant us thy salvation.
| ||I will hear what God Jehovah will speak;|
For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints:
But let them not turn again to folly.
| ||Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him,|
That glory may dwell in our land.
| ||Mercy and truth are met together;|
Righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
| ||Truth springeth out of the earth;|
And righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
| ||Yea, Jehovah will give that which is good;|
And our land shall yield its increase.
| ||Righteousness shall go before him,|
And shall make 2 his footsteps a way to walk in.
