1 Lord, Thou hast greatly blessed our land,
Thou hast brought back our captive band,
Thy pardoning grace has made us free
And covered our iniquity.

2 O Thou, Who in a former day
Didst turn Thy dreadful wrath away,
In grace Thy people, Lord, return,
And let Thy wrath no longer burn.

3 O will Thy anger never cease,
Forever shall thy wrath increase?
Revive and quicken us once more,
And Thy salvation's joy restore.

4 To us Thy mercy now afford
And show us Thy salvation, Lord;
Yea, Thou wilt answer us in peace,
If from our folly we will cease.

5 The Lord's salvation will appear
To men of faith and godly fear,
And glory in our land shall dwell
When we shall heed God's precepts well.

6 Now truth agrees with mercy mild,
Now law and peace are reconciled;
Behold the truth from earth arise,
With justice shining from the skies.

7 The Lord will send His blessing down,
And harvest all our land shall crown;
Before Him righteousness abides,
And in His steps our feet He guides.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
