VERSE 1

In times past, LORD, you showed favour
to your own beloved land;The prosperity of Jacob
you restored by your strong hand.
You forgave your people’s trespass;
you were pleased their sins to hide.
You withdrew all your displeasure;
from your wrath you turned aside.

VERSE 2

God our Saviour, now restore us;
from us turn away your rage.
Will your anger burn against us?
Will it last from age to age?
Will you not again revive us,
that we may rejoice in you?
Show us, LORD, your covenant mercy;
your salvation grant anew.

CHORUS

Have mercy have mercy 

on us we pray 

Lord Jesus God with us

walk these lands again

VERSE 3

 I will hear what God the LORD says:to his saints he offers peace;
But his people must not wander
and return to foolishness.
Surely for all those who fear him
his salvation is at hand,
So that once again his glory
may be seen within our land.

CHORUS

Have mercy have mercy 

on us we pray 

Lord Jesus God with us

walk these lands again

VERSE 4

Love and truth have met together;
righteousness and peace embrace.
Righteousness looks down from heaven;
from the earth springs faithfulness.
What is good the LORD will give us,
and our land its fruit will bear.
Righteousness will go before him
and his royal way prepare

CHORUS

Have mercy have mercy 

on us we pray 

Lord Jesus God with us

walk these lands again

OUTRO

Righteousness will go before him
and his royal way prepare
