Psalm 118: Let Us Rejoice / This Is the Day the Lord Has Made (Haugen)

Easter Sunday 11:30am Mass at the Church of Saint Mary in downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota. Our small ensemble sings Psalm 118: Let Us Rejoice (This Is the Day the Lord Has Made). Musical setting by Marty Haugen.

This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad! 
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad!

1. Give thanks to the LORD, for God is good, God's mercy endures for ever;
Let the house of Israel say: “God's mercy endures for ever.” (Refrain)

2. The hand of the LORD has struck with power, God's right hand is exalted,
I shall not die, but live anew, declaring the works of the LORD. (Refrain)

3. The stone which the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,
the LORD of love and mercy has brought wonder to our eyes. (Refrain)
