Easter Vigil

After Reading 6

Psalm text (Ps 18)

You have the message of eternal life, O Lord.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
it revives the soul.
The rule of the Lord is to be trusted,
it gives wisdom to the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right,
they gladden the heart.
The command of the Lord is clear,
it gives light to the eyes.

The fear of the Lord is holy,
abiding for ever.
The decrees of the Lord are truth
all of them just.

They are more to be desired than gold,
than the purest of gold,
and sweeter are they than honey,
than honey from the comb.

Psalm text (Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 11)

Lord, You have the words of everlasting life.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
refeshing the soul;
the decree of the Lord is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.

The precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the command of the Lord is clear,
enlightening the eye.

The fear of the Lord is pure,
enduring forever;
the ordinances of the Lord are true,
all of them just.

They are more precious they god,
than a heap of purest gold;
sweeter also than syrup
or honey from the comb.
