Easter Vigil

After Reading 3

Psalm text (Ex 15:1-2,3-5,6-7,17-18)

Let us sing to the Lord; he has covered himself in glory.

I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
horse and rider he has thrown into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and my might,
and he has become my salvation;
this is my God, and I will praise him,
my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

The Lord is a warrior;
the Lord is his name.
Pharaoh’s chariots and his army he cast into the sea;
his picked officers were sunk in the Red Sea.
The floods covered them;
they went down into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power;
your right hand, O Lord, shattered the enemy.
In the greatness of your majesty
you overthrew your adversaries;
you sent out your fury,
it consumed them like stubble.

You brought your people in
and planted them
on the mountain of your own possession,
the place, O Lord, that you made your abode,
the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hands have established.
The Lord will reign forever and ever.

Psalm text (Exod 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 17-18)

Let us sing to the Lord; He has covered Himself in glory.

I will sing to the Lord, for He is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot He has cast into the sea.
My strength and my courage is the Lord,
and He has been my savior.
He is my God, I praise Him;
the God of my father, I extol Him.

The Lord is a warrior,
Lord is His name!
Pharaoh's chariots and army He hurled into the sea;
the elite of his officers were submerged in the Red Sea.

The flood waters covered them,
they sank into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, magnificent in power,
Your right hand, O Lord, has shattered the enemy.

You brought in the people You redeemed
and planted them on the mountain of Your inheritance--
the place where You made Your seat, O Lord,
the sanctuary, Lord which Your hands established.

The Lord shall reign forever and ever.
