1 Lord, you have been gracious to your land;*
you have turned away the captivity of Jacob.
2 You have forgiven the offence of your people*
and covered all their sins.
3 You have taken away all your displeasure*
and turned yourself from your wrathful indignation.
4 Restore us then, O God our Savior,*
and let your anger cease from us.
5 Will you be displeased at us for ever,*
and will you stretch out your wrath from one generation to another?
6 Will you not turn again and quicken us,*
that your people may rejoice in you?
7 Show us your mercy, O Lord,*
and grant us your salvation.
8 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.
9 For his salvation is near to those who fear him,*
that glory may dwell in our land.
10 Mercy and truth have met together;*
righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Truth shall flourish out of the earth,*
and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Indeed, the Lord shall show goodness,*
and our land shall give its increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before him,*
and he shall direct his going in the way.
