3rd Sunday of Easter (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 29:2,4-6,11-13)

I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me.

I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me
and have not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, you have raised my soul from the dead,
restored me to life from those who sink into the grave.

Sing psalms to the Lord, you who love him,
give thanks to his holy name.
His anger lasts but a moment; his favour through life.
At night there are tears, but joy comes with dawn.

The Lord listened and had pity.
The Lord came to my help.
For me you have changed my mourning into dancing.
O Lord my God, I will thank you for ever.

Gospel Verse

Christ is risen, the Lord of all creation; he has shown pity on all people.

Psalm text (Ps 30:2+4, 5-6, 11-12a+13b)

I will praise You, Lord, for You have rescued me.

I will extol You, O Lord, for You drew me clear
and did not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, You brought me up from the netherworld.
You preserved me from among those going down into the pit.

Sing praise to the Lord, you His faithful ones,
and give thanks to His holy name.
For His anger lasts but a moment;
a lifetime His good will.
At nightfall weeping enters in,
but with the dawn rejoicing.

Hear, O Lord, and have pity on me.
O Lord, be my helper.
You have changed my mourning into dancing.
O Lord, my God, forever will I give You thanks.
