Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13
God, you’ve been good to us.
You’ve helped us out of our mess;
You’ve forgiven our wrongs;
You’ve made up for our shortcomings.
(Take a moment and think that through.)
Let me hear what God says;
God’s word to God’s people
Will be “peace.”
Set yourself in that direction.
And it will be well with us all.
Where constant love meets truth
Justice and peace come together.
Truth rises from the ground
Where Justice descends from the sky.
God gives a harvest of good
Where Justice comes before.
