Gospel Acclamation: 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among people of good will.'

From the Gospel 25 December - Mass during the night

But the angel said, 'Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you good news of great joy for the whole people, that today a Saviour has been born to you in the town of David, who is Christ the Lord. And this is a sign for you; you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a throng of the heavenly host, praising God and saying: "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among people of good will." Luke 2:10-14

Psalm 95   

(proclaimed at Christmas Mass during the night.)

 O sing a new song to the Lord;

Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

O sing to the Lord; Bless his name.


Proclaim his salvation day by day.

Tell among the nations his glory,

And his wonders among all the peoples.


Let the heavens rejoice and earth be glad;

Let the sea and all within it thunder praise.

Let the land and all it bears rejoice.

Then will the trees of the wood shout for joy


At the presence of the Lord, for he comes,

He comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world with righteousness;

He will govern the peoples with his truth.
