Psalm 85. Benedixisti, Domine.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Sixteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. LORD, thou art become gracious unto thy land; *
    thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
  2. Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people, *
    and covered all their sins.
  3. Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure, *
    and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.
  4. Turn us then, O God our Saviour, *
    and let thine anger cease from us.
  5. Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever? *
    and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?
  6. Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us, *
    that thy people may rejoice in thee?
  7. Show us thy mercy, O Lord, *
    and grant us thy salvation.
  8. I will hearken what the Lord God will say; *
    for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again unto foolishness.
  9. For his salvation is nigh them that fear him; *
    that glory may dwell in our land.
  10. Mercy and truth are met together: *
    righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
  11. Truth shall flourish out of the earth, *
    and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
  12. Yea, the Lord shall show loving-kindness; *
    and our land shall give her increase.
  13. Righteousness shall go before him, *
    and shall direct his going in the way.
