Benedixisti, Domine
Benedixisti, Domine

LORD, thou art become gracious unto thy land : thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
2. Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people : and covered all their sins.
3. Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure : and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.
4. Turn us then, O God our Saviour : and let thine anger cease from us.
5. Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever : and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?
6. Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us : that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7. Shew us thy mercy, O Lord : and grant us thy salvation.
8. I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me : for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again.
9. For his salvation is nigh them that fear him : that glory may dwell in our land.
10. Mercy and truth are met together : righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11. Truth shall flourish out of the earth : and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
12. Yea, the Lord shall shew loving-kindness : and our land shall give her increase.
13. Righteousness shall go before him : and he shall direct his going in the way.
