Psalm 85:1 First Part [Lord, Thou Hast Call’d Thy Grace To Mind]
by [?]


Psalm 85:1. 1-8. First Part
Waiting for an answer to prayer; or,
Deliverance begun and completed.

Lord, thou hast call’d thy grace to mind,
Thou hast revers’d our heavy doom:
So God forgave when Israel sinn’d,
And brought his wandering captives home.

Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made thy fiercest wrath abate;
Now let our hearts be turn’d 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.
