Prayer for God's Mercy upon the Nation.

1 O LORD, You showed 1favor to Your land; You a2restored the captivity of Jacob. 2 You 3forgave the iniquity of Your people; You 4covered all their sin. bSelah. 3 You 5withdrew all Your fury; You 6turned away from Your burning anger. 4 7Restore us, O God of our salvation, And 8cause Your indignation toward us to cease. 5 Will 9You be angry with us forever? Will You prolong Your anger to call generations? 6 Will You not Yourself d10revive us again, That Your people may 11rejoice in You? 7 Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And 12grant us Your salvation. 8 eI will hear what God the LORD will say; For He will 13speak peace to His people, fto His godly ones; But let them not 14turn back to gfolly. 9 Surely 15His salvation is near to those who hfear Him, That 16glory may dwell in our land. 10 17Lovingkindness and itruth have met together; 18Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 11 jTruth 19springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven. 12 Indeed, 20the LORD will give what is good, And our 21land will yield its produce. 13 22Righteousness will go before Him And will make His footsteps into a way.
