Christmas Eve – The Nativity of the Lord – Vigil: Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 89:4-5, 16-17, 27, 29

For ever I will sing the goodness of the Lord.

Verse 1:

I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
   I have sworn to David my servant:
forever will I confirm your posterity
   and establish your throne for all generations.

Verse 2:

Blessed the people who know the joyful shout;
   in the light of your countenance, O LORD, they walk.
At your name they rejoice all the day,
   and through your justice they are exalted.

Verse 3:

He shall say of me, “You are my father,
   my God, the rock, my savior.”
Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
   and my covenant with him stands firm.
