(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.
You have forgiven the sin
    and taken away the guilt
    of your people.
Your fierce anger is no longer
    aimed at us.

Our Lord and our God,
    you save us!
    Please bring us back home
    and don’t be angry.
Will you always be angry
    with us and our families?
Won’t you give us fresh life
    and let your people be glad
    because of you?
Show us your love
    and save us!

I will listen to you, Lord God,
    because you promise peace
to those
    who are faithful
    and no longer foolish.
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.
