Sing to God, sing in praise of his name,
    extol him who rides on the clouds;

    rejoice before him—his name is the Lord.

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,

    is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families,
he leads out the prisoners with singing;
    but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
Psalm 68:4-6



The lectionary readings for this Seventh Sunday of Easter are:

First reading:  Acts 1:6-14

The collect:

Almighty God,
you have raised your only Son
to the right hand of your glory,
and bestowed on him the name above all names. Assure
us that as he reigns with you in heaven
so he abides with us on earth to the end of time; through
the same Jesus Christ our Lord
who lives and is glorified
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
