Psalm 85

Julie Tennent

1Lord, You showed Your land Your favor
and restored captivity.
2You did cover all our sin and
did forgive iniquity.

3You withdrew Your burning anger,
Turned away from Your fierce wrath;
4Now, once more, O God our Savior,
Restore us who seek Your path.

5Will Your anger last forever?
To all ages wrath prolong?
6Will You not again revive us
that we may rejoice in song?

7Show us now Your lovingkindness
and grant us Your salvation.
8I will listen to what God says,
Speaking peace to godly ones.

Let them not return to folly,
9For salvation is quite near;
In our land may the Lord’s glory
dwell with those who do God fear.

10Love and truth have met together,
Righteousness does kiss peace, when
11faithfulness springs forth from earth, and
righteousness looks down from heav’n.

12For the Lord will give what’s good and
then our land its fruit will yield;
13Righteousness will go before Him,
Make His steps a path revealed.
