You forgave the iniquity of Your people and covered all their sins. You set aside all Your wrath and turned from your fierce anger. Psalm 85:2–3
Words: Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David 1719.
Waiting for an answer to prayer; or, deliverance begun and completed.
Music: Ames (von Neukomm) Sigismund R. von Neukomm, 1837 (🔊 pdf nwc).
Lord, Thou hast called Thy grace to mind,
Thou hast reversed our heavy doom;
So God forgave when Israel sinned,
And brought His wandering captives home.
Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made Thy fiercest wrath abate;
Now let our hearts be turned to Thee,
And Thy salvation be complete.
Revive our dying graces, Lord,
And let Thy saints in Thee rejoice;
Make known Thy truth, fulfill Thy word;
We wait for praise to tune our voice.
We wait to hear what God will say;
He’ll speak, and give His people peace;
But let them run no more astray,
Lest His returning wrath increase.
