Easter Friday 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.


Friday - 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 85


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

O Lord, you showed fa-vor to your land;
you re-stored the well-be-ing of Ja-cob.
You par-doned the wrong-do-ing of your peo-ple;
you for-gave all their sin.

You with-drew all your fu-ry;
you turned back from your rag-ing an-ger.
Re-store us, O God our de-liv-er-er!
Do not be dis-pleased with us!

Will you stay mad at us for-ev-er?
Will you re-main an-gry through-out fu-ture gen-er-a-tions?
Will you not re-vive us once more?
Then your peo-ple will re-joice in you!

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
Be-stow on us your de-liv-er-ance!
I will lis-ten to what God the Lord says.
For he will make peace with his peo-ple, his faith-ful fol-low-ers.

Yet they must not re-turn to their fool-ish ways.
Cer-tain-ly his loy-al fol-low-ers will soon ex-pe-ri-ence his de-liv-er-ance;
then his splen-dor will a-gain ap-pear in our land.
Loy-al love and faith-ful-ness meet;

De-liv-er-ance and peace greet each oth-er with kiss.
Faith-ful-ness grows from the ground,
and de-liv-er-ance looks down from the sky.
Yes, the Lord will be-stow his good bles-sing,

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
And our land will yield its crops.
De-liv-er-ance goes be-fore him,
and pre-pares path-way for him.

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.


Psalm 86


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

Lis-ten O Lord! An-swer me!
For I am op-pressed and need-y.
Pro-tect me, for I am loy-al! You are my God;
de-liv-er your serv-ant who trusts in you!

Have mer-cy on me, Lord,
for I cry out to you all day long!
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, Lord, pray!

Cer-tain-ly O Lord, you are kind and for-giv-ing,
and show great faith-ful-ness to all who cry out to you.
O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my plea for mer-cy!

In my time of trou-ble I cry out to you,
for you will an-swer me.
None can com-pare to you a-mong the gods, Lord!
Your ex-ploits are in-com-pa-ra-ble!

All the na-tions, whom you cre-at-ed,
will come and wor-ship you, Lord.
They will ho-nor your name.
For you are great and do a-maz-ing things.

You a-lone are God.
O Lord, teach me how you want me to live!
Then I will o-bey your com-mand.
Make me whole-heart-ed-ly com-mit-ted to you!

O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!
I will ho-nor your name con-tin-ual-ly!
For you will ex-tend your great loy-al love to me,
and will de-liv-er my life from the depths of She-ol.

O God, ar-ro-gant men at-tack me;
a gang of ruth-less men, who do not re-spect you, seek my life.
But you, O Lord, are a com-pas-sion-ate and mer-ci-ful God.
You are pa-tient and dem-on-strate great loy-al love and faith-ful-ness.

Turn toward me and have mer-cy on me!
Give your serv-ant your strength!
De-liv-er this son of your fe-male serv-ant!
Show me ev-i-dence of your fa-vor!

Then those who hate me will see it and be a-shamed,
for you, O Lord, will help me and com-fort me.
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, Lord, pray!

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 1 Samuel 2:1-10


Hannah prayed,
“My heart has rejoiced in the Lord;
my horn has been raised high because of the Lord.
I have loudly denounced my enemies.
Indeed I rejoice in your deliverance.

No one is holy like the Lord!
There is no one other than you!
There is no rock like our God!


Don’t keep speaking so arrogantly.
Proud talk should not come out of your mouth!
For the Lord is a God who knows;
he evaluates what people do.


The bows of warriors are shattered,
but those who stumbled have taken on strength.


The well-fed hire themselves out to earn food,
but the hungry no longer lack.
Even the barren woman has given birth to seven,
but the one with many children has declined.


The Lord both kills and gives life;
he brings down to the grave and raises up.


The Lord impoverishes and makes wealthy;
he humbles and he exalts.


He lifts the weak from the dust;
he raises the poor from the ash heap
to seat them with princes–
he bestows on them an honored position.
The foundations of the earth belong to the Lord–
he placed the world on them.


He watches over his holy ones,
but the wicked are made speechless in the darkness,
for it is not by one’s own strength that one prevails.


The Lord shatters his adversaries;
he thunders against them from the heavens.
The Lord executes judgment to the ends of the earth.
He will strengthen his king
and exalt the power of his anointed one.”


Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Friday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

Seek the Lord while he wills to be found;
call up-on him when he draws near.
Let the wick-ed for-sake their ways
and the e-vil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to the Lord,
and he will have com-pas-sion,
Let then re-turn to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heav-ens are high-er than the earth,
so are my ways high-er than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heav-ens
and re-turns not a-gain,
but wat-ers the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giv-ing a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread and fruit for eat-ing,

So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not re-turn to me emp-ty;
But it will ac-com-plish that which I have pur-posed,
and pros-per in that for which sent it.

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 2:1-10


And although you were dead in your offenses and sins, in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the domain of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest…

But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, even though we were dead in offenses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you are saved! –and he raised us up together with him and seated us together with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, to demonstrate in the coming ages the surpassing wealth of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; it is not from works, so that no one can boast. For we are his creative work, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we can do them.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Friday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, Lord our God,
For you cre-at-ed eve-ry-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-at-ed and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fam-i-ly, lan-guage, peo-ple, and na-tion,
a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for ev-er and for ev-er-more.

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.


Friday 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.


Friday - 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.


Friday - 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.


O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; 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 Fridays
Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

A Prayer for Mission
Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name. 
Amen.

Friday - Closing Eph 3:20

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
