Morning Song - Thursday after Proper 7

Pentecost - Thursday 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.


Thursday - 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 105:1-22

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



Give thanks to the Lord! Call on his name!
Make known his ac-com-plish-ments a-mong the na-tions!
Sing to him! Make mu-sic to him!
Tell a-bout all his mi-rac-u-lous deeds!

Boast a-bout his ho-ly name!
Let the hearts of those who seek the Lord re-joice!
Seek the Lord and the strength he gives!
Seek his pres-ence con-tin-ual-ly!

Re-call the mi-rac-u-lous deeds he per-formed,
his might-y acts and the judg-ments he de-creed,
O chil-dren of A-bra-ham, Gods serv-ant,
you de-scen-dants of Ja-cob, Gods cho-sen one!

He is the Lord our God;
he car-ries out judg-ment through-out the earth.
He al-ways re-mem-bers his cov-e-nant-al de-cree,
the prom-ise he made to a thou-sand gen-er-a-tions

the prom-ise he made to A-bra-ham,
the prom-ise he made by oath to I-saac!
He gave it to Ja-cob as de-cree,
to Is-ra-el as a last-ing prom-ise, say-ing,

To you I will give the land of Ca-naan
as the por-tion of your in-her-it-ance.
When they were few in num-ber, just a ver-few,
and res-i-dent for-eign-ers with-in it,

they wan-dered from na-tion to na-tion,
and from one king-dom to an-oth-er.
He let no one op-press them;
he dis-ci-plined kings for their sake, say-ing,

Don't touch my cho-sen one!
Do not harm my proph-ets!
He called down a fam-ine up-on the earth;
he cut off all the food sup-ply.

He sent a man a-head of them
Jo-seph was sold as serv-ant.
The shack-les hurt his feet;
his neck was placed in an i-ron col-lar,

Un-til the time when his pre-dic-tion came true.
The Lord's word proved him right.
The king au-thor-ized his re-lease;
the rul-er of na-tions set him free.

He put him in charge of his pal-ace,
and made him man-ag-er of all his prop-er-ty,
giv-ing him au-thor-i-ty to im-pris-on his of-fi-cials
and to teach his ad-vis-ers.

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 17:1-11


The Lord spoke to Moses: “Speak to the Israelites, and receive from them a staff from each tribe, one from every tribal leader, twelve staffs; you must write each man’s name on his staff. You must write Aaron’s name on the staff of Levi; for one staff is for the head of every tribe. You must place them in the tent of meeting before the ark of the covenant where I meet with you. And the staff of the man whom I choose will blossom; so I will rid myself of the complaints of the Israelites, which they murmur against you. ”

So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and each of their leaders gave him a staff, one for each leader, according to their tribes – twelve staffs; the staff of Aaron was among their staffs. Then Moses placed the staffs before the Lord in the tent of the testimony.
On the next day Moses went into the tent of the testimony – and the staff of Aaron for the house of Levi had sprouted, and brought forth buds, and produced blossoms, and yielded almonds! So Moses brought out all the staffs from before the Lord to all the Israelites. They looked at them, and each man took his staff.

The Lord said to Moses, “Bring Aaron’s staff back before the testimony to be preserved for a sign to the rebels, so that you may bring their murmurings to an end before me, that they will not die. ” So Moses did as the Lord commanded him – this is what he did.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     




I will sing to the Lord,
for he is loft-and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my peo-ple and will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a might-y war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his ho-ly Name.
The char-i-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The fin-est of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fa-thom-less deep has o-ver-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like stone.

Your right hand, Lord,
is glo-ri-ous and might-y;
your right hand, Lord,
has o-ver-thrown the en-e-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glo-ri-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the peo-ple you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your ho-ly dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, Lord,

In the sanc-tu-ar-y, Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ev-er and for ev-er. A-men!

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 5:1-11


Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of God’s glory. Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance, character, and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. (For rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person perhaps someone might possibly dare to die. ) But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, because we have now been declared righteous by his blood, we will be saved through him from God’s wrath. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved by his life? Not only this, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received this reconciliation.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday 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.

Your king-dom come,

For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,

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 blessed Son our Savior Jesus Christ ascended far above all heavens that he might fill all things: Mercifully give us faith to perceive that, according to his promise, he abides with his Church on earth, even to the end of the ages; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. 
Amen.

A Collect for Guidance
Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

A Prayer for Mission
O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh; and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
