Morning Song - Friday after Proper 7

Confession of Sin

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Most merciful God, 
we confess that we have sinned against you 
in thought, word, and deed, 
by what we have done, 
and by what we have left undone. 
We have not loved you with our whole heart; 
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. 

We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. 
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, 
have mercy on us and forgive us; 
that we may delight in your will, 
and walk in your ways, 
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, 
forgive us all our sins, 
through our Lord Jesus Christ, 
strengthen us in all goodness, 
and by the power of the Holy Spirit 
keep us in eternal life. Amen.



Pentecost - Friday 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.




Friday - 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 102

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



Lord. O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my cry for help!
Do not ig-nore me in my time of trou-ble!
Lis-ten to me! When I call out to you, quick-ly an-swer me!

For my days go up in smoke,
and my bones are charred like fire-place.
My heart is parched and wi-thered like grass,
for I am un-a-ble to eat food.

Be-cause of the anx-ie-ty that makes me groan,
my bones pro-trude from my skin.
I am like an owl in the wil-der-ness;
I am like a screech owl a-mong the ruins.

I stay a-wake; I am like a sol-i-tar-y bird on roof.
All day long my en-e-mies taunt me;
those who mock me use my name in their curs-es.
For I eat ash-es as if they were bread.

I mix my drink with my tears,
be-cause of your an-ger and rag-ing fu-ry.
In-deed, you pick me up and throw me a-way.
My days are com-ing to an end.

I am wi-thered like grass.
But you, O Lord, rule for-ev-er,
and your rep-u-ta-tion en-dures.
You will rise up and have com-pas-sion on Zi-on.

For it is time to have mer-cy on her,
for the ap-point-ed time has come.
In-deed, your serv-ants take de-light in her stones,
and feel com-pas-sion for the dust of her ruins.

The na-tions will re-spect the rep-u-ta-tion of the Lord,
and all the kings of the earth will re-spect his splen-dor,
when the Lord re-builds Zi-on, and re-veals his splen-dor,
when he re-sponds to the prayer of the des-ti-tute.

He does not re-ject their re-quest.
The ac-count of his in-ter-ven-tion will be re-cord-ed for fu-ture gen-er-a-tions;
peo-ple yet to be born will praise the Lord.
For he will look down from his sanc-tu-ar-a-bove;

From heav-en the Lord will look toward earth,
in or-der to hear the pain-ful cries of the pris-on-er,
and to set free those con-demned to die,
so they may pro-claim the name of the Lord in Zi-on,

And praise him in Je-ru-sa-lem,
when the na-tions gath-er to-geth-er,
and the king-doms pay trib-ute to the Lord.
He has tak-en a-way my strength in the mid-dle of life;

He has cut short my days. say,
O my God, please do not take me a-way in the mid-dle of my life!
You en-dure through all gen-er-a-tions.
In ear-li-er times you es-tab-lished the earth;

The skys are your hand-i-work.
They will per-ish, but you will en-dure.
They will wear out like gar-ment;
like clothes you will re-move them and they will dis-ap-pear.

But you re-main;
your years do not come to an end.
The chil-dren of your serv-ants will set-tle down here,
and their de-scen-dants will live se-cure-ly in your pres-ence.

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 Numbers 20:1-13


Then the entire community of Israel entered the wilderness of Zin in the first month, and the people stayed in Kadesh. Miriam died and was buried there.

And there was no water for the community, and so they gathered themselves together against Moses and Aaron. The people contended with Moses, saying, “If only we had died when our brothers died before the Lord! Why have you brought up the Lord’s community into this wilderness? So that we and our cattle should die here?Why have you brought us up from Egypt only to bring us to this dreadful place? It is no place for grain, or figs, or vines, or pomegranates; nor is there any water to drink!”

So Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly to the entrance to the tent of meeting. They then threw themselves down with their faces to the ground, and the glory of the Lord appeared to them. Then the Lord spoke to Moses: “Take the staff and assemble the community, you and Aaron your brother, and then speak to the rock before their eyes. It will pour forth its water, and you will bring water out of the rock for them, and so you will give the community and their beasts water to drink. ”

So Moses took the staff from before the Lord, just as he commanded him. Then Moses and Aaron gathered the community together in front of the rock, and he said to them, “Listen, you rebels, must we bring water out of this rock for you?”Then Moses raised his hand, and struck the rock twice with his staff. And water came out abundantly. So the community drank, and their beasts drank too.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust me enough to show me as holy before the Israelites, therefore you will not bring this community into the land I have given them. ”

These are the waters of Meribah, because the Israelites contended with the Lord, and his holiness was maintained among them.

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 Romans 5:12-21


So then, just as sin entered the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all people because all sinned –for before the law was given, sin was in the world, but there is no accounting for sin when there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam until Moses even over those who did not sin in the same way that Adam (who is a type of the coming one) transgressed. But the gracious gift is not like the transgression. For if the many died through the transgression of the one man, how much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one man Jesus Christ multiply to the many! And the gift is not like the one who sinned. For judgment, resulting from the one transgression, led to condemnation, but the gracious gift from the many failures led to justification. For if, by the transgression of the one man, death reigned through the one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, Jesus Christ!

Consequently, just as condemnation for all people came through one transgression, so too through the one righteous act came righteousness leading to life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of one man many will be made righteous. Now the law came in so that the transgression may increase, but where sin increased, grace multiplied all the more, so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.

Save us from the time of tri-al,

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.
