Easter Vigil

After Reading 2

Psalm text (Ps 15:5,8-11)

Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope.

O Lord, it is you who are my portion and cup;
it is you yourself who are my prize.
I keep the Lord ever in my sight:
since he is at my right hand, I shall stand firm.

And so my heart rejoices, my soul is glad;
even my body shall rest in safety.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead,
nor let your beloved know decay.

You will show me the path of life,
the fullness of joy in your presence,
at your right hand happiness for ever.

Psalm text (Ps 16:5+8, 9-10, 11)

You are my inheritance, O Lord

O Lord, my allotted portion and my cup,
You it is who hold fast my lot.
I set the Lord, ever before me;
with Him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, abides in confidence;
because You will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will You suffer Your faithful one to undergo corruption.

You will show me the path of life,
fullness of joys in Your presence,
the delights at Your right hand forever.
