May Your Love be Upon us O Lord - Daly

Sun through the clouds over a celtic cross in Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin:   Refrain: May your love be upon us O Lord as we place all our hope in You. 1 For the word of the Lord is faithful and all his works to be trusted. The Lord loves justice and right and fills the earth with his love. 2 The Lord looks on. those who revere him, on those who hope in his love, to rescue their souls from death, to keep them alive in famine. 3 Our soul is waiting for the Lord. The Lord is our help and our shield. In him do our hearts find joy; We trust in his holy name.
This hymn is a setting of the Grail translation of Psalm 32: 4-5, 18-22.

It was composed by New Zealand born Roman Catholic liturgical musician, organist, composer and scripture-scholar Margaret Daly.
