Easter: Sixth Sunday of Easter

Psalm

8Praise our God, all nations;

let your praise be heard.

9He has kept us alive

and has not allowed us to fall.

10You have put us to the test, God;

as silver is purified by fire

so you have tested us.

11You let us fall into a trap

and placed heavy burdens on our backs.

12You let our enemies trample over us;

we went through fire and flood,

but now you have brought us to a place of safety.

13I will bring burnt offerings to your house;

I will offer you what I promised.

14I will give you what I said I would

when I was in trouble.

15I will offer sheep to be burnt on the altar;

I will sacrifice bulls and goats,

and the smoke will go up to the sky.

16Come and listen, all who honour God,

and I will tell you what he has done for me.

17I cried to him for help;

I praised him with songs.

18If I had ignored my sins,

the Lord would not have listened to me.

19But God has indeed heard me;

he has listened to my prayer.

20I praise God,

because he did not reject my prayer

or keep back his constant love from me.
