Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The Easter Proclamation known as the Exsultet is an ancient hymn traditionally sung at the Easter Vigil by a deacon or cantor. Joe Cox has composed a setting of the Exsultet adding three brief unison responses for the continuous participation of the choir and congregation. Those who have never used the Exsultet will find this setting accessible and soon becoming a beloved addition to the Vigil. A full bulletin insert jpeg (4 pages) is provided which includes the congregational responses throughout the printed Exsultet text. A church generally needs copies for the Cantor or Deacon, Choir Director and Organist. The choir may sing from the bulletin insert. 12 pages
