157. Open for me the gates of righteousness

Antiphon:
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Open for me the gates of righteousness;
I will enter them;
I will offer thanks to the Lord. [R]

"This is the gate of the Lord;
he who is righteous may enter." [R]

I will give thanks to you, for you answered me
and have become my salvation. [R]

The same stone which the builders rejected
has become the chief cornerstone. [R]

This is the Lord's doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes. [R]

On this day the Lord has acted;
we will rejoice and be glad in it. [R]

Hosanna, Lord, hosanna!
Lord, send us now success. [R]

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord;
we bless you from the house of the Lord. [R]

God is the Lord; he has shined upon us;
form a procession with branches up to the horns of the altar. [R]

"You are my God, and I will thank you;
You are my God, and I will exalt you." [R]

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his mercy endures forever. [R]

Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
