Morning Song - Fifth Monday of Easter

Fifth Monday of Easter


Easter Monday Invitation

All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto    Tenor     Bass

Al-le-lu-ia! Christ is ris-en.
The Lord is ris-en in-deed. Al-le-lu-ia!
O give thanks to the Lord, and call upon his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peoples.

Thus says the high and loft-One
who in-hab-its e-ter-ni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in the high and ho-ly place

and al-so with the one who has a con-trite and hum-ble spir-it,
to re-vive the spir-it of the hum-ble and to re-vive the heart of the con-trite.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

Glo-ry to the Fa-ther, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spir-it:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Pascha Nostrum

All    Cantor    Response    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass

Al-le-lu-ia. Christ our Pass-o-ver has been sac-ri-ficed for us;
there-fore let us keep the feast,
Not with old leav-en, the leav-en of mal-ice and e-vil,
but with the un-leav-ened bread of sin-cer-i-ty and truth. Al-le-lu-ia.

Christ be-ing raised from the dead will nev-er die a-gain;
death no long-er has do-min-ion o-ver him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God.

So al-so con-sid-er yourselves dead to sin,
and a-live to God in Je-sus Christ our Lord. Al-le-lu-ia.
Christ has been raised from the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fall-en a-sleep.

For since by a man came death,
by a man has come al-so the res-ur-rec-tion of the dead.
For as in Ad-am all die,
so in Christ shall all be made a-live. Al-le-lu-ia.


Psalm 56

Have mer-cy on me, God,
for men are at-tack-ing me!
All day long hos-tile en-e-m-ies are tor-ment-ing me.
Those who an-tic-i-pate my de-feat at-tack me all day long.

In-deed, man-y are fight-ing a-gainst me, O Ex-alt-ed One.
When I am a-fraid, trust in you.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
All day long they cause me trou-ble;
they make a hab-it of plot-ting my de-mise.
They stalk and lurk; they watch my eve-ry step,

as they pre-pare to take my life.
Be-cause they are bent on vio-lence,
do not let them es-cape!
In your an-ger br-ing down the na-tion, God!

You keep track of my mis-er-y.
Put my tears in your leath-er con-tain-er!
Are they not re-cord-ed in your scroll?
My en-e-mies will turn back when I cry out to you for help;

I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in the Lord I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
I am o-bli-gat-ed to ful-fill the vows I made to you, God;
I will give you the thank of-fer-ings you de-serve,
when you de-liv-er my life from death.

You keep my feet from stumb-ling,
so that I might serve God as en-joy life.
I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise

Glor-y to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.

Psalm 57

Have mer-cy on me,
O God! Have mer-cy on me!
For in you I have tak-en shel-ter.
In the shad-ow of your wings

I take shel-ter until trou-ble passes.
I cry out for help to God Most High,
to the God who vin-di-cates me.
May he send help from heav-en

and de-liv-er me from my en-e-mies who hurl in-sult!
May God send his loy-al love and faith-ful-ness!
I am sur-round-ed by lions;
I lie down a-mong those who want to de-vour me;

men whose teeth are spears and ar-rows,
whose tongues are sharp sword.
Rise up a-bove the sky, God!
May your splen-dor cov-er the whole earth!

They have pre-pared a net to trap me;
I am great-ly dis-cour-aged.
They have dug a pit for me.
But they will fall in-to it!

I am de-ter-mined, God!
I am de-ter-mined! I will sing and praise you!
A-wake, my soul! A-wake,
O stringed in-stru-ment and harp!

I will wake up at dawn!
I will give you thanks be-fore the na-tion, Lord!
I will sing praises to you be-fore for-eign-er!
For your loy-al love ex-tends be-yond the sky,

Your faith-ful-ness reachs the clouds.
Rise up a-bove the sky, God!
May your splen-dor cov-er the whole earth!
Your faith-ful-ness reachs the clouds.

Glor-y to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Psalm 58


Do you rul-ers real-ly pro-nounce just de-ci-sions?
Do you judge peo-ple fair-ly?
No! You plan how to do what is un-just;
you deal out vio-lence in the earth.

The wick-ed turn a-side from birth;
li-ars go a-stray as soon as they are born.
Their ven-om is like that of snake,
like a deaf ser-pent that does not hear,

that does not re-spond to the ma-gi-cian,
or to skilled snake charm-er.
O God, break the teeth in their mouths!
Smash the jaw bones of the lions, Lord!

Let them dis-ap-pear like wa-ter that flows a-way!
Let them with-er like grass!
Let them be like a snail that melts a-way as it moves a-long!
Let them be like still-born ba-bys that nev-er see the sun!

Be-fore the kin-dling is ev-en placed un-der your pot,
he will sweep it a-way
a-long with both the raw and cooked meat.
The god-ly will re-joice when they see venge-ance car-ried out;

They will bathe their feet in the blood of the wick-ed.
Then ob-serv-ers will say, “Yes in-deed, the god-ly are rewarded!
Yes in-deed, there is God!
A God who judg-es in the earth”

Glor-y to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.

The Lessons

A reading from Leviticus 16:1-19

The LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they drew near before the LORD and died. The LORD said to Moses: Tell your brother Aaron not to come just at any time into the sanctuary inside the curtain before the mercy seat that is upon the ark, or he will die; for I appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat. Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bull for a sin offering and a ram for a burnt offering. He shall put on the holy linen tunic, and shall have the linen undergarments next to his body, fasten the linen sash, and wear the linen turban; these are the holy vestments. He shall bathe his body in water, and then put them on. 

He shall take from the congregation of the people of Israel two male goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house. He shall take the two goats and set them before the LORD at the entrance of the tent of meeting; and Aaron shall cast lots on the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for Azazel. Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for the LORD, and offer it as a sin offering; but the goat on which the lot fell for Azazel shall be presented alive before the LORD to make atonement over it, that it may be sent away into the wilderness to Azazel. Aaron shall present the bull as a sin offering for himself, and shall make atonement for himself and for his house; he shall slaughter the bull as a sin offering for himself. 

He shall take a censer full of coals of fire from the altar before the LORD, and two handfuls of crushed sweet incense, and he shall bring it inside the curtain and put the incense on the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the covenant, or he will die. He shall take some of the blood of the bull, and sprinkle it with his finger on the front of the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat he shall sprinkle the blood with his finger seven times. He shall slaughter the goat of the sin offering that is for the people and bring its blood inside the curtain, and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, sprinkling it upon the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. 

Thus he shall make atonement for the sanctuary, because of the uncleannesses of the people of Israel, and because of their transgressions, all their sins; and so he shall do for the tent of meeting, which remains with them in the midst of their uncleanness. 

No one shall be in the tent of meeting from the time he enters to make atonement in the sanctuary until he comes out and has made atonement for himself and for his house and for all the assembly of Israel. Then he shall go out to the altar that is before the LORD and make atonement on its behalf, and shall take some of the blood of the bull and of the blood of the goat, and put it on each of the horns of the altar. He shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it and hallow it from the uncleannesses of the people of Israel.

Thanks be to God!

Monday First Song of Isaiah


Look, God is my de-liv-er-er!
I will trust in him and not fear.
For the Lord gives me strength and pro-tects me;
he has be-come my de-liv-er-er”

Joy-ful-ly you will draw wa-ter
from the springs of de-liv-er-ance.
At that time you will say:
“Praise the Lord! Ask him for help!

Pub-li-cize his might-y acts a-mong the na-tions!
Make it known that he is u-nique!
Sing to the Lord,
for he has done mag-nif-i-cent things,

Let this be known through-out the earth!
Cry out and shout for joy, O cit-i-zens of Zi-on,
for the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el acts might-i-ly a-mong you!”
Let this be known through-out the earth!


A reading from 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

Here ends the Reading.
Thanks be to God!

The Song of the Redeemed Magna et mirabilia
Revelation 15:3-4
O ruler of the universe, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done, *
surpassing human understanding.
Your ways are ways of righteousness and truth, *
O King of all the ages.
Who can fail to do you homage, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name? *
for you only are the Holy One.
All nations will draw near and fall down before you, *
because your just and holy works have been revealed.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Monday Creed


We be-lieve in God, the Fa-ther al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spir-it
and born of the Vir-gin Mar-y.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pil-ate,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scended into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fa-ther.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
I be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spir-it,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

Amen.

A Collect for the Renewal of Life
