O Lord, You showed afavor to Your land; You brestored the captivity of Jacob.
You aforgave the iniquity of Your people; You bcovered all their sin. Selah.
You awithdrew all Your fury; You bturned away from Your burning anger.
aRestore us, O God of our salvation, And bcause Your indignation toward us to cease.
Will aYou be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to all generations?
Will You not Yourself arevive us again, That Your people may brejoice in You?
Show us Your lovingkindness, O Lord, And agrant us Your salvation.
I will hear what God the Lord will say; For He will aspeak peace to His people, to His godly ones; But let them not bturn back to folly.
Surely aHis salvation is near to those who fear Him, That bglory may dwell in our land.
aLovingkindness and truth have met together; bRighteousness and peace have kissed each other.
Truth asprings from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven.
Indeed, athe Lord will give what is good, And our bland will yield its produce.
aRighteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.
