Show us your mercy, O Lord, *
and grant us your salvation.
I will hearken to what the Lord God will say, *
for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again.
For his salvation is near to those who fear him, *
that glory may dwell in our land.
Mercy and truth have met together; *
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth shall flourish out of the earth, *
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
Indeed, the Lord shall show goodness, *
and our land shall give its increase.
Righteousness shall go before him, *
and he shall direct his going in the way.
