9 A Song of Mercy and Truth
1 O God, will you not give us life again, ♦
that your people may rejoice in you?
2 Show us your mercy, O Lord, ♦
and grant us your salvation.
3 Truly, his salvation is near to those who fear him, ♦
that his glory may dwell in our land.
4 Mercy and truth are met together, ♦
righteousness and peace have kissed each other;
5 Truth shall spring up from the earth ♦
and righteousness look down from heaven.
6 Righteousness shall go before him ♦
and direct his steps in the way.
All Glory to the Father and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now
and shall be for ever. Amen.
