Easter Vigil

After Reading 1 (option 2)

Psalm text (Ps 33:4-5,6-7,12-13,20+22)

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

The word of the Lord is upright,
and all his work is done in faithfulness.
He loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
and all their host by the breath of his mouth.
He gathered the waters of the sea as in a bottle;
he put the deeps in storehouses.

Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has chosen as his heritage.
The Lord looks down from heaven;
he sees all human beings.

Our soul waits for the Lord;
he is our help and shield.
Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us,
even as we hope in you.

Psalm text (Ps 33:4-5, 6-7, 12-13, 20-22)

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

Upright is the word of the Lord,
and all His works are trustworthy.
He loves justice and right;
of the kindness of the Lord the earth is full.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made;
by the breath of His mouth all their host.
He gathers the waters of the sea as in a flask,
in cellars he confines the deep.

Blessed the nation whose God is the Lord,
the people He has chosen for His own inheritance.
From heaven the Lord looks down;
He sees all mankind.

Our soul waits for the Lord,
who is our help and our shield.
May Your kindness, O Lord, be upon us
who have put our hope in You.
