For the leader. On stringed instruments. A psalm. A song.
1 Bless us, O God, with your favor,
let the light of your face fall upon us;
2 that the world may know your way,
and all nations your power to save.
3 Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let the peoples all of them praise you.
4 Let the nations ring out their joy;
for you govern the peoples with equity,
and guide the nations on earth.
5 Let the peoples praise you, O God,
let the peoples, all of them, praise you.
6 The earth has yielded her increase
by the blessing of God, our God.
7 May this blessing of ours win people to him
to all the ends of the earth.
