Easter Season - Morning Prayer for Sunday, May 3
InvitationAll 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-y 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 NostrumAll 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 63 - Deus, Deus meusAll Cantor Response Soprano Alto Tenor Bass
O God, you are my God; ea-ger-ly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you, my flesh faints for you,
as in a bar-ren and dry land where there is no wa-ter.
There-fore I have gazed upon you in your ho-ly place,
that I might be-hold your pow-er and your glo-ry.
For your lov-ing kind-ness is bet-ter than life itself;
my lips shall give you praise.
So will I bless you as long as I live
and lift up my hands in your Name.
My soul is con-tent, as with mar-row and fat-ness,
and my mouth praises you with joy-ful lip,
When I re-mem-ber you upon my bed,
and med-i-tate on you in the night watch.
For you have been my help-er,
and un-der the shad-ow of your wings I will re-joice.
My soul clings to you, O Lord;
Your right hand holds me fast.
May those who seek my life to de-stroy it
go down into the depths of the earth;
Let them fall upon the edge of the sword,
and let them be food for jack-al.
But the king will re-joice in God;
all those who swear by him will be glad;
for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.
Psalm 98 - Cantate DominoAll Cantor Response Soprano Alto Tenor Bass
Sing to the Lord a new song,
for he has done mar-vel-ous things.
With his right hand and his ho-ly arm
has he won for him-self the vic-to-ry.
The Lord has made known his vic-to-ry;
his right-eous-ness has he open-ly shown
in the sight of the na-tions.
He re-mem-bers his mer-cy and faith-ful-ness
to the house of Is-ra-el,
and all the ends of the earth have seen the vic-to-ry of our God.
Shout with joy to the Lord, all you lands;
lift up your voice, re-joice, and sing.
Sing to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and the voice of song.
With trum-pets and the sound of the horn
shout with joy be-fore the King, the Lord.
Let the sea make a noise and all that is in it,
the lands and those who dwell there-in.
Let the riv-ers clap their hands,
and let the hills ring out with joy be-fore the Lord,
when he comes to judge the earth.
In right-eous-ness shall he judge the world
and the peo-ples with eq-ui-ty.
Sing to the Lord a new song!
