Lord, thou art become gracious unto thy land *
thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people *
and covered all their sins.
Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure *
and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.
Turn us then, O God our Saviour *
and let thine anger cease from us.
Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever *
and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?
Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us *
that thy people may rejoice in thee?
Shew us thy mercy, O Lord *
and grant us thy salvation.
I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me *
for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again.
For 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 shall flourish out of the earth *
and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
Yea, the Lord shall shew loving-kindness *
and our land shall give her increase.
Righteousness shall go before him *
and he shall direct his going in the way.
