This is Our God

First Reading: from Psalm 118

(from A Lukan Psalter: According to the usage of The Order of Saint Luke) 

I thank you, ADONAI, for your goodness!

Your steadfast love is everlasting!

Let Israel now pro claim:

Your steadfast love is everlasting!”


Let the House of Aaron now proclaim:

Your steadfast love is everlasting!”

Let those who revere ADONAI now proclaim:

Your steadfast love is everlasting!”


In anguish, I cried to you, ADONAI,

and you answered me with freedom.

Because ADONAI is with me,

I am not afraid – what can anyone do to me?


God is my strength and my song;

God has become my salvation!

Raise shouts of joy and victory in the tents of the upright

ADONAIs right hand is doing mighty acts!

ADONAI’s right hand has triumphed;

ADONAIs right hand is doing mighty acts!


This is the day ADONAI has made –

we will rejoice and be glad in it!

Hosanna, save us, ADONAI!

ADONAI, give us success.

Blessings on the one who comes in the Name of  ADONAI!

We bless you from the house of God.


ADONAI is God and God has en-lightened us.

Join the festal procession!

With palm fronds in hand,

go up to the horns of the altar!   


You are my God, and I thank you;

you are my God, and I exalt you.

Thank you for hearing me, for saving me.

Thank you, ADONAI, for your goodness;   

Your steadfast love is everlasting.


Second Reading: Isaiah 25: 6-9 (NRSV)

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines, of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.

And he will destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over all peoples, the sheet that is spread over all nations; he will swallow up death forever.

Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces, and the disgrace of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.

It will be said on that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

This is the Word of the Lord, Thanks be to God!
