Morning Song - Saturday after Proper 7

Pentecost - Saturday 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.



Saturday - 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 107:33-43

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



He turned streams into de-sert,
springs of wat-er into ar-id land,
and a fruit-ful land into a bar-ren place,
be-cause of the sin of its in-hab-it-ants.

As for his peo-ple, he turned a de-sert into a pool of wat-er,
and a dry land into springs of wat-er.
He al-lowed the hun-gry to set-tle there,
and they es-tab-lished a cit-in which to live.

They cul-ti-vat-ed fields, and plant-ed vine-yards,
which yield-ed har-vest of fruit.
He blessed them so that they be-came ver-y nu-mer-ous.
He would not al-low their cat-tle to de-crease in num-ber.

As for their en-e-my, they de-creased in num-ber
and they were beat-en down,
be-cause of pain-ful dis-tress and suf-fer-ing.
He would pour con-tempt up-on princ-es,

And he made them wan-der in a waste-land with no road.
Yet he pro-tect-ed the need-from op-pres-sion,
and cared for his fam-i-lies like a flock of sheep.
When the god-ly see this, they re-joice,

And eve-ry sin-ner shuts his mouth.
Who-ev-er has wis-dom,
let him take note of these things!
Let them con-sid-er the Lord's acts of loy-al love!

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 108

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



I am de-ter-mined, God!
I will sing and praise you with my whole heart.
A-wake, O stringed in-stru-ment and harp!
will wake up at dawn!

I will give you thanks be-fore the na-tion, Lord!
I will sing prais-es to you be-fore for-eign-ers!
For your loy-al love ex-tends be-yond the sky,
and your faith-ful-ness reach-es the clouds.

Rise up a-bove the sky, God!
May your splen-dor cov-er the whole earth!
De-liv-er by your pow-er and an-swer me,
so that the ones you love may be safe.

God has spo-ken in his sanc-tu-ar-y: I will tri-umph!
I will par-cel out She-chem,
the Val-ley of Suc-coth I will meas-ure off.
Gil-e-ad be-longs to me, as does Ma-nas-seh!

E-phraim is my hel-met,
Ju-dah my roy-al scep-ter.
Mo-ab is my wash-ba-sin.
I will make E-dom serve me.

I will shout in tri-umph o-ver Phil-is-ti-a.
Who will lead me into the for-ti-fied cit-y?
Who will bring me to E-dom?
Have you not re-ject-ed us, God?

O God, you do not go into bat-tle with our ar-my.
Give us help a-gainst the en-e-my,
for any help men might of-fer is fu-tile.
By God's pow-er we will con-quer; he will tram-ple our en-e-mies.

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 20:14-29


Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: “Thus says your brother Israel: ‘You know all the hardships we have experienced,how our ancestors went down into Egypt, and we lived in Egypt a long time, and the Egyptians treated us and our ancestors badly. So when we cried to the Lord, he heard our voice and sent a messenger, and has brought us up out of Egypt. Now we are here in Kadesh, a town on the edge of your country. Please let us pass through your country. We will not pass through the fields or through the vineyards, nor will we drink water from any well. We will go by the King’s Highway; we will not turn to the right or the left until we have passed through your region. ’”

But Edom said to him, “You will not pass through me, or I will come out against you with the sword. ” Then the Israelites said to him, “We will go along the highway, and if we or our cattle drink any of your water, we will pay for it. We will only pass through on our feet, without doing anything else. ”
But he said, “You may not pass through. ” Then Edom came out against them with a large and powerful force. So Edom refused to give Israel passage through his border; therefore Israel turned away from him.

So the entire company of Israelites traveled from Kadesh and came to Mount Hor. And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in Mount Hor, by the border of the land of Edom. He said: “Aaron will be gathered to his ancestors, for he will not enter into the land I have given to the Israelites because both of you rebelled against my word at the waters of Meribah. Take Aaron and Eleazar his son, and bring them up on Mount Hor. Remove Aaron’s priestly garments and put them on Eleazar his son, and Aaron will be gathered to his ancestors and will die there. ”

So Moses did as the Lord commanded; and they went up Mount Hor in the sight of the whole community. And Moses removed Aaron’s garments and put them on his son Eleazar. So Aaron died there on the top of the mountain. And Moses and Eleazar came down from the mountain. When all the community saw that Aaron was dead, the whole house of Israel mourned for Aaron thirty days.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

A reading from Romans 6:1-11


What shall we say then? Are we to remain in sin so that grace may increase? Absolutely not! How can we who died to sin still live in it? Or do you not know that as many as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, in order that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may live a new life.

For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. We know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. (For someone who has died has been freed from sin. )

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that since Christ has been raised from the dead, he is never going to die again; death no longer has mastery over him. For the death he died, he died to sin once for all, but the life he lives, he lives to God. So you too consider yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!




Saturday - 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:

Saturday 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.
