Christmas Vigil

Psalm text (Ps 88:4-5,16-17,27,29)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one;
I have sworn to David my servant:
I will establish your dynasty for ever
and set up your throne through all ages.’

Happy the people who acclaim such a king,
who walk, O Lord, in the light of your face,
who find their joy every day in your name,
who make your justice the source of their bliss.

‘He will say to me: “You are my father,
my God, the rock who saves me.”
I will keep my love for him always;
for him my covenant shall endure.’

Gospel Verse

Tomorrow the wickedness of the earth will be destroyed: the Saviour of the world will be our king.

Psalm text (Ps 89:4-5, 16-17, 27+29)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to David my servant;
foever will I confirm your posterity
and establish your throne for all generations.

Blessed the people who know the joyful shout;
in the light of Your countenance, O Lord, they walk.
At Your name they rejoice all the day,
and through Your justice they are exalted.

He shall say of me, "You are my father,
my God, the rock, my savior."
Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
and my covenant with him stands firm.
