Our Salvation is very near Psalm 84 (85)

I will hear what the Lord God has to say,
a voice that speaks of peace,
peace for his people and his friends,
and to those who turn to him in their hearts.
His help is near for those who fear him
and his glory will dwell in our land.

Mercy and faithfulness have met,
justice and peace have embraced.
Faithfulness shall sprung from the earth,
and justice look down from heaven.

The Lord will make us prosper,
and our earth shall yield its fruit.
Justice shall march before him
and peace shall follow his steps.

From Divine Office Week 3, Tuesday Morning Prayer.
