    It seems to be on the USCCB list
    There are 7 options for the Responsorial Psalm at a Nuptial Mass. We encourage you to spend time in prayer with your fiancé/e to choose the psalm which best speaks to your hopes and dreams for your Christian marriage.

    The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord (Psalm 33)
    I will bless the Lord at all times (Psalm 34)
    The Lord is kind and merciful (Psalm 103)
    Blessed the man who greatly delights in the Lord’s commands (Psalm 112)
    Blessed are those who fear the Lord (Psalm 128)
    How good is the Lord to all (Psalm 145)
    Let all praise the name of the Lord (Psalm 148)

    This is a new translation of the response to psalm 145; the previous version ran "The Lord is compassionate to all his creatures" (later "works").

    Here is a setting of Psalm 145 I've just written, with the refrain "How good is the Lord to all", as it appears on the USCCB site, with Revised Grail text. Verses written out to tone 8; simple refrain.

    It was occasioned by a couple who went ahead and printed several hundred copies of their program, and then asked for permission/proofreading. Mercifully, this was the only minor issue, and now maybe some of you might find this useful in a similar situation.
