O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
      his steadfast love endures forever!
Let Israel say,
      “His steadfast love endures forever.”
Let those who fear the Lord say,
      “His steadfast love endures forever.”

Refrain

The Lord is my strength and my might;
      he has become my salvation.
There are glad songs of victory in the tents of the righteous:
      The right hand of the Lord does valiantly;
      the right hand of the Lord is exalted;
      the right hand of the Lord does valiantly.
I shall not die, but I shall live,
      and recount the deeds of the Lord.
The Lord has punished me severely,
      but he did not give me over to death.
Open to me the gates of righteousness,
      that I may enter through them and give thanks to the Lord.
This is the grace of the Lord; the righteous shall enter through it.

Refrain

I thank you that you have answered me and have become my salvation.
      The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.
This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.
      This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Save us, we beseech you, O Lord!  O Lord, we beseech you, give us success!
      Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.
      We bless you from the house of the Lord.
The Lord is God, and he has given us light.
      Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar.
You are my God, and I will give thanks to you; you are my God, I will extol you.
      O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
