Easter Vigil

After Epistle

Psalm text (Ps 117)

Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good;
for his love has no end.
Let the sons of Israel say,
'His love has no end.'

The Lord's right hand has triumphed,
his right hand has raised me up.
I shall not die, I shall live,
and recount his deeds.

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
This is the work of the Lord,
a marvel 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.
