Third Sunday of Easter Year A: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 16:1-2a and 5, 7-8, 9-10, 11

Lord, you will show us the path of life.

Verse 1:

Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
   I say to the LORD, “My Lord are you.”
O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
   you it is who hold fast my lot.

Verse 2:

I bless the LORD who counsels me;
   even in the night my heart exhorts me.
I set the LORD ever before me;
   with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.

Verse 3:

Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,   
   my body, too, abides in confidence;
because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
   nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.

Verse 4:

You will show me the path to life,
   abounding joy in your presence,
   the delights at your right hand forever.
