Easter Vigil

After Reading 4

Psalm text (Ps 30:2+4, 5-6, 11-12a+13b)

I will praise You, Lord, for You have rescued me.

I will extol You, O Lord, for You drew me clear
and did not let my enemies rejoice over me.
O Lord, You brought me up from the netherworld;
You preseved me from among those going down into the pit.

Sing praise to the Lord, you His faithful ones,
and give thanks to His holy name.
For His anger lasts but a moment;
a lifetime, His good will.
At nightfall, weeping enters in,
but with the dawn, rejoicing.

Hear, O Lord, and have pity on me;
O Lord, be my helper.
You changed my mourning into dancing;
O Lord, my God, forever will I give You thanks.
