Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet; Righteousness and peace will embrace once another.

Psalm 85 from Nan Merrill’s Psalms for Praying.

O Beloved, how gracious You are

to your people;

You restore their souls time and

time again.

You forgive their distractions when

they wander far from You;

You give them new Life.

Yes, You bless them and raise up

new hope;

You awaken their hearts

to love.

Restore us again, O Spirit of Truth;

burn us with the refining

Fire of Love!

We cannot live separated from You;

cast out the demons of fear,

doubt, and illusion.

Revive us again, we pray; may

your people rejoice in You!

Have compassion on your people,

O Holy One,

and grant us your forgiveness.

Listen, O people, in the silent Chapel

of your heart; and

the Beloved will speak of

peace to you,

to the hidden saints, to all who

turn their hearts, to Love.

Surely new life is at hand for those

who reverence Love;

O, that harmony might dwell

among the nations.

Steadfast love and faithfulness

will meet;

Righteousness and peace will

embrace once another.

Wisdom will spring up from the ground

and truth will look down from

the sky.

Yes, the Eternal Giver will grant

what is good,

and the lands will yield

abundantly.

Mercy and compassion are Love’s way;

You will guide our footsteps

upon the path of peace

as we recognise with open hearts

that You are our peace.
