Psalm 85 and the Benedictus

Benedixisti, Domine

LORD, thou art become gracious unto thy land : thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob.
2. Thou hast forgiven the offence of thy people : and covered all their sins.
3. Thou hast taken away all thy displeasure : and turned thyself from thy wrathful indignation.
4. Turn us then, O God our Saviour : and let thine anger cease from us.
5. Wilt thou be displeased at us for ever : and wilt thou stretch out thy wrath from one generation to another?
6. Wilt thou not turn again, and quicken us : that thy people may rejoice in thee?
7. Shew us thy mercy, O Lord : and grant us thy salvation.
8. I will hearken what the Lord God will say concerning me : for he shall speak peace unto his people, and to his saints, that they turn not again.
9. For his salvation is nigh them that fear him : that glory may dwell in our land.
10. Mercy and truth are met together : righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11. Truth shall flourish out of the earth : and righteousness hath looked down from heaven.
12. Yea, the Lord shall shew loving-kindness : and our land shall give her increase.
13. Righteousness shall go before him : and he shall direct his going in the way.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Benedictus

BLESSED be the Lord God of Israel : for he hath visited and redeemed his people;
And hath raised up a mighty salvation for us : in the house of his servant David;
As he spake by the mouth of his holy Prophets : which have been since the world began;
That we should be saved from our enemies : and from the hand of all that hate us.
To perform the mercy promised to our forefathers : and to remember his holy Covenant;
To perform the oath which he sware to our forefather Abraham : that he would give us;
That we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies : might serve him without fear;
In holiness and righteousness before him : all the days of our life.
And thou, Child, shalt be called the Prophet of the Highest : for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people : for the remission of their sins,
Through the tender mercy of our God : whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us;
To give light to them that sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death : and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
   As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
