Morning Song - Seventh Monday of Easter

Easter Monday Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All  

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 up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.

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 spi-rit,
to re-vive the spi-rit 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 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.

Monday - Christ our Passover


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All  

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 your-selves 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 A-dam all die,
so in Christ shall all be made a-live. Al-le-lu-ia.



Psalm 89:1-18


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

I will sing con-tin-ual-ly a-bout the Lords faith-ful deeds;
to fu-ture gen-er-tions I will pro-claim your faith-ful-ness.
For I say, Loy-al love is per-ma-nent-ly es-tab-lished;
in the skies you set up your faith-ful-ness.

The Lord said, I have made a cov-e-nant with my cho-sen one;
I have made a prom-ise on oath to Da-vid, my serv-ant:
I will give you an e-ter-nal dy-nas-ty
and es-tab-lish your throne through-out fu-ture gen-er-a-tions.

O Lord, the heav-ens praise your a-maz-ing deeds,
as well as your faith-ful-ness in the an-gel-ic as-sem-bly.
For who in the skys can com-pare to the Lord?
Who is like the Lord a-mong the heav-en-ly be-ings,

a God who is ho-nored in the great an-gel-ic as-sem-bly,
and more awe-some than all who sur-round him?
O Lord God of Heav-ens Ar-my!
Who is strong like you, Lord?

Your faith-ful-ness sur-rounds you.
You rule o-ver the proud sea.
When its waves surge, you calm them.
You crushed the Proud One and killed it;

With your strong arm you scat-tered your en-e-my.
The heav-ens be-long to you, as does the earth.
You made the world and all it con-tains.
You cre-at-ed the north and the south.

Ta-bor and He-rmon re-joice in your name.
Your arm is pow-er-ful, your hand strong,
your right hand is vic-to-ri-ous.
Eq-ui-ty and jus-tice are the foun-da-tion of your throne.

Loy-al love and faith-ful-ness char-ac-ter-ize your rule.
How bless-ed are the peo-ple who wor-ship you!
O Lord, they ex-pe-ri-ence your fa-vor.
They re-joice in your name all day long,

They are vin-di-cat-ed by your jus-tice.
For you give them splen-dor and strength.
By your fa-vor we are vic-to-ri-ous.
For our shield be-longs to the Lord,

O Lord, we ex-pe-ri-ence your fa-vor.
We re-joice in your name all day long,
You are our king
You are the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Glo-ry 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.


A reading from Joshua 1:1-9

After Moses the Lord’s servant died, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ assistant: “Moses my servant is dead. Get ready! Cross the Jordan River! Lead these people into the land which I am ready to hand over to them.I am handing over to you every place you set foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert in the south to Lebanon in the north. It will extend all the way to the great River Euphrates in the east (including all of Syria) and all the way to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. 


No one will be able to resist you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not abandon you or leave you alone.Be strong and brave! You must lead these people in the conquest of this land that I solemnly promised their ancestors I would hand over to them.Make sure you are very strong and brave! Carefully obey all the law my servant Moses charged you to keep! Do not swerve from it to the right or to the left, so that you may be successful in all you do. This law scroll must not leave your lips! You must memorize it day and night so you can carefully obey all that is written in it. 


Then you will prosper and be successful. I repeat, be strong and brave! Don’t be afraid and don’t panic, for I, the Lord your God, am with you in all you do.”


Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my strong-hold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw wa-ter with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-mem-ber that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the prais-es of the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-hab-it-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Glo-ry 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.


A reading from Ephesians 3:1-13


For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles if indeed you have heard of the stewardship of God’s grace that was given to me for you, that by revelation the mystery was made known to me, as I wrote before briefly. 


When reading this, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ (which was not disclosed to people in former generations as it has now been revealed to his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit), namely, that through the gospel the Gentiles are fellow heirs, fellow members of the body, and fellow partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus. I became a servant of this gospel according to the gift of God’s grace that was given to me by the exercise of his power. To me – less than the least of all the saints – this grace was given, to proclaim to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ and to enlighten everyone about God’s secret plan – the mystery that has been hidden for ages in God who has created all things. 


The purpose of this enlightenment is that through the church the multifaceted wisdom of God should now be disclosed to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly realms. This was according to the eternal purpose that he accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confident access to God by way of Christ’s faithfulness. For this reason I ask you not to lose heart because of what I am suffering for you, which is your glory.


Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Monday - Song of the Redeemed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

O rul-er of the u-ni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing hu-man un-der-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of right-eous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ages.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the prais-es of your Name?
for you on-ly are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and ho-ly works
have been re-vealed. Al-le-lu-ia, a-men!

Glo-ry 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.

Monday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er 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 Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
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-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
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.

Monday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. A-men.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

Monday - Suffrages A


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

Let your way be known up-on earth;
Your sav-ing health a-mong all na-tions.
Let not the need-y, O Lord, be for-got-ten;
Nor the hope of the poor be tak-en a-way.

Cre-ate in us clean hearts, God;
And sus-tain us with your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.

Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth: We humbly pray that your gracious providence may give and preserve to our use the harvests of the land and of the seas, and may prosper all who labor to gather them, that we, who are constantly receiving good things from your hand, may always give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Collect for the Renewal of Life
O God, the King eternal, whose light divides the day from the night and turns the shadow of death into the morning: Drive far from us all wrong desires, incline our hearts to keep your law, and guide our feet into the way of peace; that, having done your will with cheerfulness while it was day, we may, when night comes, rejoice to give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for Mission
O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh; and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thanks be to God. Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia
Glo-ry to God whose pow-er, work-ing in us,
can do in-fi-nite-ly more than we can ask or im-ag-ine

Glo-ry to him from gen-er-a-tion to gen-er-a-tion in the Church,
and in Christ Je-sus for ev-er and ev-er. A-men.
Let us bless the Lord. Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia
