Psalm 85 Renewed – Duncan Wilson, UK

Advent 2, Year C

I am listening to what God is saying,
promising peace if we forsake our foolish ways.

For surely God is ready to protect those who show due honour
and will be present in our land.
Here, love and loyalty will meet,
truth and peace embrace.

As our humanity reaches up,
so will God’s righteousness descend.

God will prosper our endeavours
with harvests full and rich.

Justice will walk God’s path,
preparing the way.
