Full Text

1 O Lord, to us Thy mercy show,
And Thy salvation now bestow;

3 Truth springing forth the earth shall crown,
And righteousness from heaven look down,
And God on us His goodness shed;
Our land shall then with plenty flow,
Before Him righteousness shall go,
And cause us in His steps to tread.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
