Easter Vigil

After Reading 3

Psalm text (Exod 15:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 17-18)

Let us sing to the Lord; He has covered Himself in glory.

I will sing to the Lord, for He is gloriously triumphant;
horse and chariot He has cast into the sea.
My strength and my courage is the Lord,
and He has been my savior.
He is my God, I praise Him;
the God of my father, I extol Him.

The Lord is a warrior,
Lord is His name!
Pharaoh's chariots and army He hurled into the sea;
the elite of his officers were submerged in the Red Sea.

The flood waters covered them,
they sank into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, magnificent in power,
Your right hand, O Lord, has shattered the enemy.

You brought in the people You redeemed
and planted them on the mountain of Your inheritance--
the place where You made Your seat, O Lord,
the sanctuary, Lord which Your hands established.

The Lord shall reign forever and ever.
