Morning Song - First Sunday after Pentecost - Trinity Sunday

Pentecost - Sunday Invitation

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


The Lord is in his ho-ly tem-ple;
let all the earth keep si-lence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the med-i-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cep-ta-ble in your sight, Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

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

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your ho-ly hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
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.



Sunday - Venite

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let us come be-fore his pres-ence with thanks-giv-ing
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is great God,
and a great King a-bove all gods.
In his hand are the cav-erns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his al-so.

The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have mold-ed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the peo-ple of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would heark-en to his voice!



Psalm 146

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, my soul!
I will praise the Lord as long as live!
I will sing prais-es to my God as long as ex-ist!
Do not trust in princ-es, or in man kind, who can-not de-liv-er!

Their life's breath de-parts,
they re-turn to the ground; on that day their plans die.
How bless-ed is the one whose help-er is the God of Ja-cob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,

the one who made heav-en and earth,
the seas, and all that is in them,
who re-mains for-ev-er faith-ful,
and vin-di-cates the op-pressed,

The Lord gives food to the hun-gry.
The Lord re-leas-es the im-pris-oned.
The Lord gives sight to the blind.
The Lord lifts up all who are bent o-ver.

The Lord loves the god-ly.
The Lord pro-tects the res-i-dent for-eign-er;
he lifts up the fa-ther-less
and cares for the wid-ow,

But he op-pos-es the wick-ed.
The Lord rules for-ev-er, your God, Zi-on,
through-out the gen-er-a-tions to come!
Praise the Lord for-ev-er!

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 147

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Praise the Lord, for it is good
to sing prais-es to our God!
Yes, praise is pleas-ant and ap-pro-pri-ate!
The Lord re-builds Je-ru-sa-lem,

And gath-ers the ex-iles of Is-ra-el.
He heals the bro-ken-heart-ed,
and band-a-ges their wounds.
He counts the stars and names them all.

Our Lord is great and has awe-some pow-er;
there is no lim-it to his wis-dom.
The Lord lifts up the op-pressed,
but knocks the wick-ed to the ground.

Of-fer to the Lord a song of thanks!
Sing prais-es to our God to the ac-com-pani-ment of harp!
He cov-ers the sky with clouds,
He pro-vides the earth with rain,

And causes grass to grow on the hill-side.
He gives food to the an-i-mals,
and to the young ra-vens when they chirp.
He is not en-a-mored with the strength of horse,

Nor is he im-pressed by the war-ri-or's strong legs.
The Lord takes de-light in his faith-ful fol-low-ers,
and in those who wait for his loy-al love.
Ex-tol the Lord, O Je-ru-sa-lem! Praise your God, Zi-on!

For he makes the bars of your gates strong.
He bless-es your chil-dren with-in you.
He brings peace to your ter-ri-to-ry.
He a-bun-dant-ly pro-vides for you the best grain.

He sends his com-mand through the earth;
swift-ly his or-der reach-es its des-ti-na-tion.
He sends the snow that is white like wool;
He spreads the frost that is white like ashes.

He throws his hail-stones like crumbs.
Who can with-stand the cold wind he sends?
He then or-ders it all to melt;
He breathes on it, and the wat-er flows.

He pro-claims his word to Ja-cob,
his stat-utes and reg-u-la-tions to Is-ra-el.
He has not done so with any oth-er na-tion;
they are not a-ware of his reg-u-la-tion. Praise the Lord!

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 Job 38:1-11;42:1-5



Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:

“Who is this who darkens counsel
with words without knowledge?


Get ready for a difficult task like a man;
I will question you
and you will inform me!


“Where were you
when I laid the foundation of the earth?
Tell me, if you possess understanding!


Who set its measurements – if you know –
or who stretched a measuring line across it?


On what were its bases set,
or who laid its cornerstone –


when the morning stars sang in chorus,
and all the sons of God shouted for joy?


“Who shut up the sea with doors
when it burst forth, coming out of the womb,


when I made the storm clouds its garment,
and thick darkness its swaddling band,


when I prescribed its limits,
and set in place its bolts and doors,


when I said, ‘To here you may come
and no farther,
here your proud waves will be confined’?

Then Job answered the Lord:

“I know that you can do all things;
no purpose of yours can be thwarted;


you asked,
‘Who is this who darkens counsel
without knowledge?’
But I have declared without understanding
things too wonderful for me to know.


You said,
‘Pay attention, and I will speak;
I will question you, and you will answer me. ’


I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,
but now my eye has seen you.


Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Sunday - Song of Zechariah

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from the hands of our en-e-mies,
Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In the ten-der com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and the shad-ow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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 Revelation 19:4-16



The twenty-four elders and the four living creatures threw themselves to the ground and worshiped God, who was seated on the throne, saying: “Amen! Hallelujah!”
Then a voice came from the throne, saying:
“Praise our God
all you his servants,
and all you who fear him,
both the small and the great!”
Then I heard what sounded like the voice of a vast throng, like the roar of many waters and like loud crashes of thunder. They were shouting:
“Hallelujah!
For the Lord our God, the All-Powerful, reigns!

Let us rejoice and exult
and give him glory,
because the wedding celebration of the Lamb has come,
and his bride has made herself ready.


She was permitted to be dressed in bright, clean, fine linen” (for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints).


Then the angel said to me, “Write the following: Blessed are those who are invited to the banquet at the wedding celebration of the Lamb!” He also said to me, “These are the true words of God. ” So I threw myself down at his feet to worship him, but he said, “Do not do this! I am only a fellow servant with you and your brothers and sisters who hold to the testimony about Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony about Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. ”

Then I saw heaven opened and here came a white horse! The one riding it was called “Faithful” and “True,” and with justice he judges and goes to war. His eyes are like a fiery flame and there are many diadem crowns on his head. He has a name written that no one knows except himself. He is dressed in clothing dipped in blood, and he is called the Word of God. The armies that are in heaven, dressed in white, clean, fine linen, were following him on white horses. From his mouth extends a sharp sword, so that with it he can strike the nations. He will rule them with an iron rod, and he stomps the winepress of the furious wrath of God, the All-Powerful. He has a name written on his clothing and on his thigh: “King of kings and Lord of lords. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Sunday - You are God

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the pow-ers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Ho-ly, ho-ly, ho-ly Lord, God of pow-er and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glo-ri-ous com-pa-ny of a-pos-tles praise you.
The no-ble fel-low-ship of proph-ets praise you.
The white robed ar-my of mar-tyrs praise you.
Through-out the world the ho-ly Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of maj-es-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son, wor-thy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, ad-vo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You o-ver-came the sting of death
and o-pened the king-dom of heav-en to all be-liev-ers.
You are seat-ed at Gods right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ev-er-last-ing.



Sunday 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.

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.



Sunday - 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 Sundays
O God, you make us glad with the weekly remembrance of the glorious resurrection of your Son our Lord: Give us this day such blessing through our worship of you, that the week to come may be spent in your favor; 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.
