Seventh Responsorial PsalmĀ (alternate, when baptism is not celebrated) for Easter Sunday

Psalm 51:12-13, 14-15, 18-19

For the Vigil Mass

Summary: Requesting a new beginning, I seek God's presence and the renewal of His spirit within me. His desire is for genuine repentance, not outward rituals. In His grace, joy and guidance are restored, leading the wayward back to His embrace.

A Heart Restored by Grace

R. Create a clean heart in me, O God.

A clean heart create for me, O God,
and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
and your Holy Spirit take not from me.

R. Create a clean heart in me, O God.

Give me back the joy of your salvation,
and a willing spirit sustain in me.
I will teach transgressors your ways,
and sinners shall return to you.

R. Create a clean heart in me, O God.

For you are not pleased with sacrifices;
should I offer a holocaust, you would not accept it.
My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit;
a heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.

R. Create a clean heart in me, O God.
