Psalm of the Day Bread of Life Psalm 85
1LORD, you were favorable | to your land;*
you restored the fortunes of | Jacob.
2You forgave the iniquity of your | people;*
you covered | all their sin.
3You withdrew | all your wrath;*
you turned from your hot | anger.
4Restore us again, O God of our sal- | vation,*
and put away your indignation | toward us!
5Will you be angry with us for- | ever?*
Will you prolong your anger to all gener- | ations?
6Will you not revive | us again,*
that your people may re- | joice in you?
7Show us your steadfast love, | O LORD,*
and grant us your sal- | vation.
8Let me hear what God the | LORD will speak,*
for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints;
but let them not turn back to | folly.
9Surely his salvation is near to those who | fear him,*
that glory may dwell | in our land.
10Steadfast love and faith- | fulness meet;*
righteousness and peace kiss each | other.
11Faithfulness springs up | from the ground,*
and righteousness looks down | from the sky.
12Yes, the LORD will give | what is good,*
and our land will yield its | increase.
13Righteousness will go be- | fore him*
and make his foot- | steps a way.
