The Collect:

Almighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ’s Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

First Lesson: Acts 2:14a, 22-32

Psalm: Psalm 16

Protect me, O God, for I take refuge in you; *
       I have said to the Lord, “You are my Lord,
       my good above all other.”
All my delight is upon the godly that are in the land, *
       upon those who are noble among the people.
But those who run after other gods *
       shall have their troubles multiplied.
Their libations of blood I will not offer, *
       nor take the names of their gods upon my lips.
O Lord, you are my portion and my cup; *
       it is you who uphold my lot.
My boundaries enclose a pleasant land; *
       indeed, I have a goodly heritage.
I will bless the Lord who gives me counsel; *
       my heart teaches me, night after night.
I have set the Lord always before me; *
       because he is at my right hand I shall not fall.
My heart, therefore, is glad, and my spirit rejoices; *
       my body also shall rest in hope.
10 For you will not abandon me to the grave, *
       nor let your holy one see the Pit.
11 You will show me the path of life; *
       in your presence there is fullness of joy,
       and in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.
