Lyrics (Psalm 85:9-10, 11-12, 13-14):
Response: Lord, let us see your kindness, and grant us your salvation.
I will hear what God proclaims;
the LORD - for he proclaims peace.
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land. Response
Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven. Response
The LORD himself will give his benefits;
our land shall yield its increase.
Justice shall walk before him,
and prepare the way of his steps. Response
