Let me hear what God the Sovereign will speak,
for God will speak peace to the people,
God will speak to the faithful,
to those who turn to God in their hearts.
Surely God’s salvation is at hand for those who fear God,
that God’s glory may dwell in our land.
Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet.
Justice and peace will intermingle.
Faithfulness will spring up from the ground,
and justice will reach down from the sky.
God will give what is good,
and our land will yield its increase.
Justice will go before God,
and will make a path for God’s steps.
