Morning Song - May 3 2020

Easter Season - Morning Prayer for Sunday, May 3


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 63 - Deus, Deus meus

All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

O God, you are my God; ea-ger-ly 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 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, 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 Domino

All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

Sing to the Lord 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 new song!

The Lessons

A reading from Exodus 28:1-4, 28:30-38

Then bring near to you your brother Aaron, and his sons with him, from among the Israelites, to serve me as priests-- Aaron and Aaron's sons, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. You shall make sacred vestments for the glorious adornment of your brother Aaron. And you shall speak to all who have ability, whom I have endowed with skill, that they make Aaron's vestments to consecrate him for my priesthood. 

These are the vestments that they shall make: a breast piece, an ephod, a robe, a checkered tunic, a turban, and a sash. When they make these sacred vestments for your brother Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests, In the breast piece of judgment you shall put the Urim and the Thummim, and they shall be on Aaron's heart when he goes in before the LORD; thus Aaron shall bear the judgment of the Israelites on his heart before the LORD continually. 

You shall make the robe of the ephod all of blue. It shall have an opening for the head in the middle of it, with a woven binding around the opening, like the opening in a coat of mail, so that it may not be torn. On its lower hem, you shall make pomegranates of blue, purple, and crimson yarns, all around the lower hem, with bells of gold between them all around-- a golden bell and a pomegranate alternating all around the lower hem of the robe. Aaron shall wear it when he ministers and its sound shall be heard when he goes into the holy place before the LORD, and when he comes out, so that he may not die. 

You shall make a rosette of pure gold, and engrave on it, like the engraving of a signet, "Holy to the LORD." You shall fasten it on the turban with a blue cord; it shall be on the front of the turban. It shall be on Aaron's forehead, and Aaron shall take on himself any guilt incurred in the holy offering that the Israelites consecrate as their sacred donations; it shall always be on his forehead, in order that they may find favor before the LORD.

Here ends the Reading.

Song of Moses

All      Cantor      Response     Soprano      Alto     Tenor      Bass

I will sing to the Lord, for he is loft-y and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er has he hurled into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.

This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my peo-ple and will ex-alt him.
The Lord is a might-y war-ri-or;
and Yah-weh is his Name.

The char-i-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my has he hurled into the sea;
the fin-est of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fath-om-less deep has o-ver-whelmed them;

they sank into the depths like stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, is glo-ri-ous in might;
your right hand, O Lord, has o-ver-thrown the en-e-my.
Who can be com-pared with you, O Lord, a-mong the god?

who is like you, glo-ri-ous in ho-li-ness,
awe-some in re-nown, and work-er of won-der?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love you led the peo-ple you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your ho-ly dwell-ing.
You will br-ing them in and plant them

on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
The re-sting place you have made for your-self, Lord,
the sanc-tu-ar-y, O Lord, that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign for ev-er and for ev-er.

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.

A reading from 1 John 2:18-29

Children, it is the last hour! As you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. From this we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not belong to us; for if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. But by going out they made it plain that none of them belongs to us. But you have been anointed by the Holy One, and all of you have knowledge. 

I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and you know that no lie comes from the truth. Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. No one who denies the Son has the Father; everyone who confesses the Son has the Father also. Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. 

And this is what he has promised us, eternal life. I write these things to you concerning those who would deceive you. As for you, the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and so you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him, so that when he is revealed we may have confidence and not be put to shame before him at his coming. If you know that he is righteous, you may be sure that everyone who does right has been born of him.

Here ends the Reading.
