(A psalm by the people of Korah for the music leader.)
A Prayer for Peace
85 Our Lord, you have blessed your land and made all go well for Jacob’s descendants. 2 You have forgiven the sin and taken away the guilt of your people. 3 Your fierce anger is no longer aimed at us.
4 Our Lord and our God, you save us! Please bring us back home and don’t be angry. 5 Will you always be angry with us and our families? 6 Won’t you give us fresh life and let your people be glad because of you? 7 Show us your love and save us!
8 I will listen to you, Lord God, because you promise peace to those who are faithful and no longer foolish. 9 You are ready to rescue everyone who worships you, so that you will live with us in all of your glory.
10 Love and loyalty will come together; goodness and peace will unite. 11 Loyalty will sprout from the ground; justice will look down from the sky above.
12 Our Lord, you will bless us; our land will produce wonderful crops. 13 Justice will march in front, making a path for you to follow.
