Easter Vigil

After Epistle

Psalm text (Ps 118:1-2,16-17,22-23)

Alleluia! (Two or three times)

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his steadfast love endures forever.
Let Israel say,
“His steadfast love endures forever.”

“The right hand of the Lord is exalted;
the right hand of the Lord does valiantly.”
I shall not die, but I shall live,
and recount the deeds of the Lord.

The stone that the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing;
it is marvellous in our eyes.

After Epistle

Psalm text (Ps 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23)

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
Let the house of Israel say,
“His mercy endures forever.”

The right hand of the LORD has struck with power;
the right hand of the LORD is exalted.
I shall not die, but live,
and declare the works of the LORD.

The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
By the LORD has this been done;
it is wonderful in our eyes.
