The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock (Jeremiah 31:10-13)

R. The Lord will guard us
as a shepherd guards his flock.

1. O nations, hear the word of the Lord,
proclaim it to the far-off coasts.
Say: “He who scattered Israel will gather him
and guard him as a shepherd guards his flock.”
For the Lord has ransomed Jacob,
has saved him from an overpowering hand. (R.)

2. They will come and shout for joy on Mount Zion,
they will stream to the blessings of the Lord,
to the corn, the new wine and the oil,
to the flocks of sheep and the herds. (R.)

3. Then the young girls will rejoice and will dance,
the men, young and old, will be glad.
I will turn their mourning into joy,
I will console them, give gladness for grief. (R.)

ACCLAMATION

Alleluia, alleluia!

God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son; everyone who believes in him has eternal life.

Alleluia!
