Christmas Vigil

Psalm text (Ps 89:3-4,15-16,26+28)

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to my servant David:
I will establish your descendants forever,
and build your throne for all generations.”

Happy are the people who know the festal shout,
who walk, O Lord, in the light of your countenance;
they exult in your name all day long,
and extol your righteousness.

He shall cry to me, “You are my Father,
my God, and the Rock of my salvation!”
Forever I will keep my steadfast love for him,
and my covenant with him will stand firm.

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.
