Second Version (C.M.)
^1Lord, unto us be merciful,
do thou us also bless;
And graciously cause shine on us
the brightness of thy face:
^2That so thy way upon the earth
to all men may be known;
Also among the nations all
thy saving health be shown.
^3O let the people praise thee, Lord;
let people all thee praise.
^4O let the nations be glad,
and sing for joy always:
For rightly thou shalt people judge,
and nations rule on earth.
^5Let people praise thee, Lord; let all
the folk praise thee with mirth.
^6Then shall the earth yield her increase;
God, our God, bless us shall.
^7God shall us bless; and of the earth
the ends shall fear him all.
