READING Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29
God of our salvation,
We give you thanks for Jesus Christ, our Lord,
Who came in Your name
And turned the lonely way of rejection and death
Grant us the steadfast faith
To enter the gates of righteousness, that we may receive grace to become worthy citizens
Of your holy realm.
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!
