Comparing Text Only ~ All Saints Day ~ Year ABC

To day is All Saints Day.

Just comparing the 2 versions.

Our Sunday Missal uses the European / UK Version (Grail).

Sometimes, the different versions help in understanding.

But it also shows how dangerous it is with 
the old adage of being "lost in translation", 
but we do the best we can.

Feast of All Saints ~ Year ABC

European / UK Version (Grail)

Responsorial Psalm 23
Ps 23:1-6

Such are the men who 
seek your face, O Lord.

The Lord's is the earth and its fullness,
the world and all its peoples.
It is he who set it on the seas;
on the waters he made it firm.

Who shall climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who shall stand in his holy place?
The man with clean hands and pure heart,
who desires not worthless things.

He shall receive blessings from the Lord
and reward from the God who saves him.
Such are the men who seek him,
seek the face of the God of Jacob.

Feast of All Saints ~ Year ABC

American / US Version

Responsorial Psalm 24
Ps 24:1BC-2, 3-4AB, 5-6

Lord, this is the people that 
longs to see your face.

The LORD’s are the earth and its fullness;
the world and those who dwell in it.
For he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the rivers.

Who can ascend the mountain of the LORD?
or who may stand in his holy place?
One whose hands are sinless, whose heart is clean,
who desires not what is vain.

He shall receive a blessing from the LORD,
a reward from God his savior.
Such is the race that seeks him,
that seeks the face of the God of Jacob.
