PSALM 85

Below is a metrical version by David Schütz of Psalm 85:8-13, which may be sung to the tune Ave virgo (LH 469. TIS 391). If reproducing this version, please put ‘Words (c) David Schütz’ at the beginning or the end of the psalm.

Let me hear what God will say –
say to all his faithful.
He will speak his peace to us –
peace to all who trust him.
His salvation now is near –
near to all who fear him.
He in glory comes to us –
comes and makes his dwelling.

Love and faithfulness will meet –
meet in peace and justice.
Faithfulness will spring from earth,
righteousness from heaven.
God will give us what is good
and our land will prosper.
Righteousness will pave his way
as he comes to save us.
