You once favored, Lord, your land, restored the good fortune of Jacob.
You forgave the guilt of your people, you pardoned all their sins.
You withdrew all your wrath, turned back your burning anger.

Restore us once more, God our savior; abandon your wrath against us.
Will you be angry with us forever, drag out your anger for all generations?
Please give us life again, that your people may rejoice in you.
Show us, Lord, your love; grant us your salvation.

Psalm 85:2-8
