Invitation



Pentecost - Sunday Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and loft-y 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 - Jubilate


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Be joy-ful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with glad-ness
and come be-fore his pres-ence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

He him-self has made us, and we are his;
we are his peo-ple and the sheep of his pas-ture.
En-ter his gates with thanks-giv-ing;
go into his courts with praise;

Give thanks to him and call up-on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mer-cy is ev-er last-ing;
and his faith-ful-ness en-dures from age to age.

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.


Psalms



Psalm 118


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good
and his loy-al love en-dures!
Let Is-ra-el say,
Yes, his loy-al love en-dures!

Let the fam-i-ly of Aa-ron say,
Yes, his loy-al love en-dures!
Let the loy-al fol-low-ers of the Lord say,
Yes, his loy-al love en-dures!

In my dis-tress I cried out to the Lord.
and the Lord an-swered me
He put me in a wide o-pen place.
The Lord is on my side, I am not a-fraid!

What can peo-ple do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my help-er.
I look in tri-umph
on all those who hate me.

It is bet-ter to take shel-ter in the Lord
than to trust in peo-ple.
It is bet-ter to take shel-ter in the Lord
than to trust in princ-es.

All the na-tions sur-round-ed me.
In-deed, in the name of the Lord
I pushed them all a-way
when they sur-round-ed me, yes, they sur-round-ed me.

In-deed, in the name of the Lord
I pushed them all a-way.
They sur-round-ed me like bees.
But they dis-ap-peared as quick-ly as a fire a-mong thorns.

In-deed, in the name of the Lord
I pushed them all a-way.
You ag-gres-sive-ly at-tacked me
and tried to knock me down,

but the Lord helped me.
The Lord gives me strength and pro-tects me;
he has be-come my de-liv-er-er.
They cel-e-brate de-liv-er-ance in the tents of the god-ly.

The Lord's right hand con-quers,
the Lord's right hand gives vic-to-ry,
The Lord's right hand con-quers,
I will not die, but live,

I will pro-claim what the Lord has done.
The Lord se-vere-ly pun-ished me,
but he did not hand me o-ver to death.
O-pen for me the gates of the just king's tem-ple!

I will en-ter through them and give thanks to the Lord.
This is the Lord's gate and the god-ly en-ter through it.
I will give you thanks, for you an-swered me,
and have be-come my de-liv-er-er.

The stone which the build-ers re-ject-ed
has be-come the cor-ner-stone.
This is the Lord's work.
We con-sid-er it a-maz-ing!

This is the day the Lord has brought a-bout.
We will be hap-py and re-joice in it.
Please Lord, de-liv-er!
Please Lord, grant us suc-cess!

May the one who comes in the name of the Lord be blessed!
We will pro-nounce bles-sings on you in the Lord's tem-ple.
The Lord is God and he has de-liv-ered us.
Tie the of-fer-ing with ropes to the horns of the al-tar!

You are my God and I will give you thanks!
You are my God and I will praise you!
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good
and his loy-al love en-dures 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.


Readings



A reading from Numbers 21:4-9, 21-35


Then they traveled from Mount Hor by the road to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom, but the people became impatient along the way. And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up from Egypt to die in the wilderness, for there is no bread or water, and we detest this worthless food. ”

So the Lord sent venomous snakes among the people, and they bit the people; many people of Israel died. Then the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that he would take away the snakes from us. ” So Moses prayed for the people.

The Lord said to Moses, “Make a poisonous snake and set it on a pole. When anyone who is bitten looks at it, he will live. ” So Moses made a bronze snake and put it on a pole, so that if a snake had bitten someone, when he looked at the bronze snake he lived.

Then Israel sent messengers to King Sihon of the Amorites, saying,

“Let us pass through your land; we will not turn aside into the fields or into the vineyards, nor will we drink water from any well, but we will go along the King’s Highway until we pass your borders. ” But Sihon did not permit Israel to pass through his border; he gathered all his forces together and went out against Israel into the wilderness. When he came to Jahaz, he fought against Israel. But the Israelites defeated him in battle and took possession of his land from the Arnon to the Jabbok, as far as the Ammonites, for the border of the Ammonites was strongly defended. So Israel took all these cities; and Israel settled in all the cities of the Amorites, in Heshbon, and in all its villages. For Heshbon was the city of King Sihon of the Amorites. Now he had fought against the former king of Moab and had taken all of his land from his control, as far as the Arnon. That is why those who speak in proverbs say,
“Come to Heshbon, let it be built.
Let the city of Sihon be established!


For fire went out from Heshbon,
a flame from the city of Sihon.
It has consumed Ar of Moab
and the lords of the high places of Arnon.


Woe to you, Moab.
You are ruined, O people of Chemosh!
He has made his sons fugitives,
and his daughters the prisoners of King Sihon of the Amorites.


We have overpowered them;
Heshbon has perished as far as Dibon.
We have shattered them as far as Nophah,
which reaches to Medeba. ”

So the Israelites lived in the land of the Amorites. Moses sent spies to reconnoiter Jaazer, and they captured its villages and dispossessed the Amorites who were there.

Then they turned and went up by the road to Bashan. And King Og of Bashan and all his forces marched out against them to do battle at Edrei. And the Lord said to Moses, “Do not fear him, for I have delivered him and all his people and his land into your hand. You will do to him what you did to King Sihon of the Amorites, who lived in Heshbon. ” So they defeated Og, his sons, and all his people, until there were no survivors, and they possessed his land.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my strong-hold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw wa-ter with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-mem-ber that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the prais-es of the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-hab-it-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

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 Acts 17:12-34


Therefore many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men. But when the Jews from Thessalonica heard that Paul had also proclaimed the word of God in Berea, they came there too, inciting and disturbing the crowds. Then the brothers sent Paul away to the coast at once, but Silas and Timothy remained in Berea. Those who accompanied Paul escorted him as far as Athens, and after receiving an order for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they left.

While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, his spirit was greatly upset because he saw the city was full of idols. So he was addressing the Jews and the God-fearing Gentiles in the synagogue, and in the marketplace every day those who happened to be there. Also some of the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers were conversing with him, and some were asking, “What does this foolish babbler want to say?” Others said, “He seems to be a proclaimer of foreign gods. ” (They said this because he was proclaiming the good news about Jesus and the resurrection. ) So they took Paul and brought him to the Areopagus, saying, “May we know what this new teaching is that you are proclaiming? For you are bringing some surprising things to our ears, so we want to know what they mean. ”(All the Athenians and the foreigners who lived there used to spend their time in nothing else than telling or listening to something new. )

So Paul stood before the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I see that you are very religious in all respects. For as I went around and observed closely your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: ‘To an unknown god. ’ Therefore what you worship without knowing it, this I proclaim to you. The God who made the world and everything in it, who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in temples made by human hands, nor is he served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives life and breath and everything to everyone. From one man he made every nation of the human race to inhabit the entire earth, determining their set times and the fixed limits of the places where they would live, so that they would search for God and perhaps grope around for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move about and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we too are his offspring. ’ So since we are God’s offspring, we should not think the deity is like gold or silver or stone, an image made by human skill and imagination. Therefore, although God has overlooked such times of ignorance, he now commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has set a day on which he is going to judge the world in righteousness, by a man whom he designated, having provided proof to everyone by raising him from the dead. ”

Now when they heard about the resurrection from the dead, some began to scoff, but others said, “We will hear you again about this. ” So Paul left the Areopagus. But some people joined him and believed. Among them were Dionysius, who was a member of the Areopagus, a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
