Prayer for God’s Mercy upon the Nation.
For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.
1O Lord, Thou didst show favor to Thy land;
2Thou didst forgive the iniquity of Thy people;
3Thou didst withdraw all Thy fury;
4Restore us, O God of our salvation,
5Wilt Thou be angry with us forever?
6Wilt Thou not Thyself revive us again,
7Show us Thy lovingkindness, O LORD,
8I will hear what God the LORD will say;
9Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him,
10Lovingkindness and truth have met together;
11Truth springs from the earth;
12Indeed, the LORD will give what is good;
13Righteousness will go before Him,
