Easter Vigil

After Reading 1 (option 2)

Psalm text (Ps 32)

The Lord fills the earth with his love.

The word of the Lord is faithful
and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord love justice and right
and fills all the earth with his love.

By his word the heavens were made,
by the breath of his mouth all the stars.
He collects the waves of the ocean;
stores up the depths of the sea.

They are happy, whose God is the Lord,
the people he has chosen as his own.
From the heavens the Lord looks forth,
he sees all the children of men.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
The Lord is our help and our shield.
May your love be upon us, O Lord,
as we place all our 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.
