...The LORD longs to be gracious to you,
And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.
For the LORD is a God of justice;
How blessed are all those who long for Him.
O people in Zion, inhabitants in Jerusalem, you will weep no longer.
He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry;
when He hears it, He will answer you.
Although the Lord has given you the bread of privation and water of oppression,
He, your Teacher, will no longer hide Himself,
but your eyes will behold your Teacher.
And your ears will hear a word behind you, "This is the way, walk in it,"
whenever you turn to the right or to the left.
Hear a just cause, O LORD, give heed to my cry; Give ear to my prayer ...
Hold up my goings in thy paths, O LORD, that my footsteps slip not.
I have called upon Thee, for Thou wilt answer me, O God;
Incline Thine ear to me, hear my speech.
Wondrously show Thy lovingkindness,
O Savior of those who take refuge at Thy right hand
From those who rise up against them...
As for me, I shall behold Thy face in righteousness;
I will be satisfied with Thy likeness when I awake.
Thou wilt make known to me the path of life;
In Thy presence is fulness of joy;
In Thy right hand there are pleasures forever.
