Easter Vigil

After Reading 1 (option 2)

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.
