Psalm 118.1-2, 118.14-24
1 O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good:
his mercy endures for ever.
2 Let Israel now proclaim:
that his mercy endures for ever.
14 The Lord is my strength and my song:
and has become my salvation.
15 The sounds of joy and deliverance:
are in the tents of the righteous.
16 The right hand of the Lord does mighty things:
the right hand of the Lord raises up.
17 I shall not die but live:
and proclaim the works of the Lord.
18 The Lord has disciplined me hard:
but he has not given me over to death.
19 Open me the gates of righteousness:
and I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord:
the righteous shall enter it.
21 I will praise you, for you answered me:
and have become my salvation.
22 The stone that the builders rejected:
has become the head of the corner.
23 This is the Lord’s doing:
and it is marvellous in our eyes.
24 This is the day that the Lord has made:
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
