1 Thy land to favour graciously
Thou hast not, Lord, been slack ; Thou hast from hard captivity
Returned Jacob back.
2 The iniquity thou didst forgive
That wrought thy people woe;
Hast hid where none shall know.
3 Thine anger all thou hadst remov'd,
And calmly didst return From thy fierce wrath which we had prov'd
Far worse than fire to burn.
4 God of our saving health and
peace, Turn us, and us restore ; Thine indignation cause to cease
Towards us, and chide no more.
5 Wilt thou be angry without end,
For ever angry thus ?
From age to age on us?
6 Wilt thou not turn and hear our voice,
And us again revive,
By thee preserv'd alive?
7 Cause us to see thy goodness, Lord,
To us thy mercy shew;
And life in us renew.
8 And now, what God the Lord will speak,
I will go straight and hear,
And to his saints full dear,
To his dear saints he will speak peace ;
But let them never more
To trespass as before.
9 Surely, to such as do him fear
Salvation is at hand;
To dwell within our land.
10 Mercy and Truth, that long were miss'd,
Now joyfully are met;
And hand in hand are set.
11 Truth from the earth, like to a flower,
Shall bud and blossom then;
Look down on mortal men.
12 The Lord will also then bestow
Whatever thing is good ;
Her fruits to be our food.
13 Before him Righteousness shall go,
His royal harbinger :
His footsteps cannot err.
1 Thy gracious ear, O Lord, incline,
O hear me, I thee pray;
With need, and sad decay.
2 Preserve my soul; for I have trod
Thy ways, and love the just;
Who still in thee doth trust.
3 Pity me, Lord, for daily thee 4 I call; O make rejoice Thy servant's soul; for, Lord, to thee
I lift my soul and voice.
5 For thou art good, thou, Lord, art prone
To pardon, thou to all
To them that on thee call.
7 I, in the day of my distress,
Will call on thee for aid ;
And answer what I pray'd.
8 Like thee among the Gods is none,
O Lord ; nor any works
Like to thy glorious works.
9 The Nations all whom thou hast made
Shall come, and all shall frame
And glorify thy Name.
10 For great thou art, and wonders great
By thy strong hand are done :
Remainest God alone.
11 Teach me, O Lord, thy way most right ;
I in thy truth will bide ;
So shall it never slide.
12 Thee will I praise, O Lord my God,
Thee honour and adore
whole heart, and blaze abroad Thy Name for evermore.
13 For great thy mercy is toward me,
And thou hast freed my soul,
From deepest darkness foul.
14 O God, the proud against me rise,
And violent men are met
No fear of thee have set.
15 But thou, Lord, art the God most mild,
Readiest thy grace to shew,
Most merciful, most true.
16 0, turn to me thy face at length,
And me have mercy on;
And save thy handmaid's son.
17 Some sign of good to me afford, And let my foes then see,
, And be asham’d; because thou, Lord,
Dost help and comfort me.
1 Among the holy mountains high
Is his foundation fast;
His temple there is plac'd.
2 Sion's fair gates the Lord loves more
Than all the dwellings fair
And all within his care.
