Psalm 085

1    O Lord, thou hast been favourable

          to thy beloved land:

     Jacob’s captivity thou hast

          recall’d with mighty hand.

2    Thou pardoned thy people hast

          all their iniquities;

     Thou all their trespasses and sins

          hast cover’d from thine eyes.

3    Thou took’st off all thine ire, and turn’dst

          from thy wrath’s furiousness.

4    Turn us, God of our health, and cause

          thy wrath ‘gainst us to cease.

5    Shall thy displeasure thus endure

          against us without end?

     Wilt thou to generations all

          thine anger forth extend?

6    That in thee may thy people joy,

          wilt thou not us revive?

7    Shew us thy mercy, Lord, to us

          do thy salvation give.

8    I’ll hear what God the Lord will speak:

          to his folk he’ll speak peace,

     And to his saints; but let them not

          return to foolishness.

9    To them that fear him surely near

          is his salvation;

     That glory in our land may have

          her habitation.

10   Truth met with mercy, righteousness

          and peace kiss’d mutually:

11   Truth springs from earth, and righteousness

          looks down from heaven high.

12   Yea, what is good the Lord shall give;

          our land shall yield increase:

13   Justice, to set us in his steps,

          shall go before his face.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
