Morning Song - Sixth Tuesday of Easter

Easter Tuesday 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.

Tuesday - 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 78:1-39


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

Pay at-ten-tion, my peo-ple, to my in-struc-tion!
Lis-ten to the words speak!
I will sing a song that im-parts wis-dom;
I will make in-sight-ful ob-ser-va-tions a-bout the past.

What we have heard and learned
that which our an-ces-tors have told us
we will not hide from their de-scend-ants.
We will tell the next gen-er-a-tion a-bout the Lord's praise-wor-thy acts,

A-bout his great strength
and the a-maz-ing things he has done.
He es-tab-lished a rule in Ja-cob;
he set up a law in Is-ra-el.

He com-mand-ed our an-ces#-tors
to make his deeds known to their de-scend-ants,
so that the next gen-er-a-tion,
chil-dren yet to be born, might know a-bout them.

They will grow up and tell their de-scend-ants a-bout them.
Then they will place their con-fi-dence in God.
They will not for-get the works of God,
and they will o-bey his com-mand.

Then they will not be like their an-ces-tors,
who were a stub-born and re-bel-lious gen-er-a-tion,
a gen-er-a-tion that was not com-mit-ted and faith-ful to God.
they will o-bey his com-mand.

The E-phraim-ites were armed with bow,
but they re-treat-ed in the day of bat-tle.
They did not keep their cov-e-nant with God,
and they re-fused to o-bey his law.

They for-got what he had done,
the a-maz-ing things he had shown them.
He did a-maz-ing things in the sight of their an-ces-tors,
in the land of E-gypt, in the re-gion of Zo-an.

He di-vid-ed the sea and led them a-cross it;
he made the wat-er stand in heap.
He led them with a cloud by day,
and with the light of fire all night long.

He broke o-pen rocks in the wil-der-ness,
and gave them e-nough wat-er to fill the depths of the sea.
He caused streams to flow from the rock,
and made the wat-er flow like riv-ers.

Yet they con-tin-ued to sin a-gainst him,
and re-belled a-gainst the Most High in the de-sert.
They will-ful-ly chal-lenged God
by ask-ing for food to sat-is-fy their ap-pe-tite.

They in-sult-ed God, say-ing,
Is God real-ly a-ble to give us food in the wil-der-ness?
Yes, he struck rock
and wat-er flowed out, streams gushed forth.

But can he al-so give us food?
Will he pro-vide meat for his peo-ple?
When the Lord heard this, he was fu-ri-ous.
A fire broke out a-gainst Ja-cob.

His an-ger flared up a-gainst Is-ra-el,
be-cause they did not have faith in God,
and did not trust his a-bil-i-ty to de-liv-er them.
But he gave a com-mand to the clouds a-bove,

and o-pened the doors in the sky.
He rained down man-na for them to eat;
he gave them the grain of heav-en.
Man ate the food of the might-one.

He sent them more than e-nough to eat.
He brought the east wind through the sky,
and by his strength led forth the south wind.
He rained down meat on them like dust,

birds as nu-mer-ous as the sand on the sea-shore.
He caused them to fall right in the mid-dle of their camp,
all a-round their home.
They ate un-til they were be-yond full;

he gave them what they de-sired.
They were not yet filled up,
their food was still in their mouths,
when the an-ger of God flared up a-gainst them.

He killed some of the strong-est of them;
he brought the young men of Is-ra-el to their knees.
De-spite all this, they con-tin-ued to sin,
and did not trust him to do a-maz-ing things.

So he caused them to die
un-sat-is-fied and filled with ter-ror.
When he struck them down, they sought his fa-vor;
they turned back and longed for God.

They re-mem-bered that God was their pro-tec-tor,
and that God Most High was their de-liv-er-er.
But they lied to him,
and de-ceived him with their words,

They were not real-ly com-mit-ted to him,
and they were un-faith-ful to his cov-e-nant.
Yet he is com-pas-sion-ate.
He for-gives sin and does not de-stroy.

He of-ten holds back his an-ger,
and does not stir up his fu-ry.
He re-mem-bered that they were made of flesh,
and were like a wind that blows past and does not re-turn.

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 Leviticus 26:1-20

You shall make for yourselves no idols and erect no carved images or pillars, and you shall not place figured stones in your land, to worship at them; for I am the LORD your God. You shall keep my sabbaths and reverence my sanctuary: I am the LORD. If you follow my statutes and keep my commandments and observe them faithfully, I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Your threshing shall overtake the vintage, and the vintage shall overtake the sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and live securely in your land. And I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid; I will remove dangerous animals from the land, and no sword shall go through your land. You shall give chase to your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. Five of you shall give chase to a hundred, and a hundred of you shall give chase to ten thousand; your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. I will look with favor upon you and make you fruitful and multiply you; and I will maintain my covenant with you. You shall eat old grain long stored, and you shall have to clear out the old to make way for the new. I will place my dwelling in your midst, and I shall not abhor you. And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be their slaves no more; I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect. But if you will not obey me, and do not observe all these commandments, if you spurn my statutes, and abhor my ordinances, so that you will not observe all my commandments, and you break my covenant, I in turn will do this to you: I will bring terror on you; consumption and fever that waste the eyes and cause life to pine away. You shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. I will set my face against you, and you shall be struck down by your enemies; your foes shall rule over you, and you shall flee though no one pursues you. And if in spite of this you will not obey me, I will continue to punish you sevenfold for your sins. I will break your proud glory, and I will make your sky like iron and your earth like copper. Your strength shall be spent to no purpose: your land shall not yield its produce, and the trees of the land shall not yield their fruit.

Here ends the Reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song of Three Young Men


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     


Glo-ry to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are wor-thy of praise; glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you for the ra-di-ance of your ho-ly Name;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you in the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, seat-ed be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

A reading from 1 Timothy 2:1-6

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all-- this was attested at the right time.

Here ends the Reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - 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.

Tuesday 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.

Tuesday - 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.

Tuesday - 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, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A Collect for Peace
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of 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.

and in Christ Je-sus for ev-er and ev-er. A-men.
