Show us your mercy

Psalm 84

  • Refrain:
    Show us your mercy,
    give us your help.
    Show us your mercy,
    give us your help.
  1. I will hear what the Lord has to say,
    a voice that speaks of peace,
    peace for his people; his help is near,
    his glory for ever.
  2. Mercy the Lord comes to give,
    faithfulness his gift;
    justice and peace, justice and peace
    come down from heaven.
  3. God will make us prosper and grow,
    the earth bring forth it's fruit;
    justice shall flourish,
    peace will flow and reign for ever.
