Poem based on Psalm 85 by Isaac Watts

Lord, thou hast called thy grace to mind,
Thou hast reversed our heavy doom;
So God forgave when Isr’el sinned,
And brought his wand’ring 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, fulfil 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.
