Refrain: This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad; for this is the day that the Lord has made; alleluia, alleluia!
1. Give thanks to God; the Lord is good.
God's mercy endures forever.
Let the house of Israel say:
"God's mercy endures forever."
2. The Lord's right hand is lifted up;
the hand of the Lord is mighty.
I shall not die, but live to tell
the marvelous works of God.
3. The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
This is the work of the Lord;
how wonderful, how wonderful in our eyes!
