Morning Song - Tuesday after Proper 5

Pentecost - Tuesday 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.



Tuesday - 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 61

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


O God, hear my cry for help!
Pay at-ten-tion to my prayer!
From the most re-mote place on earth
I call out to you in my de-spair.

Lead me up to a rock-sum-mit
where I can be safe in-deed.
You are my shel-ter,
a strong tow-er that pro-tects me from the en-e-my.

I will be a per-ma-nent guest in your home;
I will find shel-ter in the pro-tec-tion of your wings.
For you, O God, hear my vow;
you grant me the re-ward that be-longs to your loy-al fol-low-ers.

Give the king long life!
Make his life-time span sev-er-al gen-er-a-tions!
May he reign for-ev-er be-fore God!
De-cree that your loy-al love and faith-ful-ness should pro-tect him.

Then I will sing prais-es to your name con-tin-ual-ly,
as I ful-fill my vows day af-ter day.
For you, O God, hear my vow;
you grant me the re-ward that be-longs to your loy-al fol-low-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.



Psalm 62

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


For God a-lone I pa-tient-ly wait;
he is the one who de-liv-ers me.
He a-lone is my pro-tec-tor and de-liv-er.
He is my ref-uge; I will not be up-end-ed.

How long will you threat-en man?
All of you are mur-der-ers,
as dan-ger-ous as a lean-ing wall
or an un-sta-ble fence.

They spend all their time
plan-ning how to bring him down.
They love to use de-ceit;
they pro-nounce bles-sings with their mouths.

But in-ward-ly they ut-ter curs-es.
Pa-tient-ly wait for God a-lone, my soul!
For he is the one who gives me hope.
He a-lone is my pro-tec-tor and de-liv-er-er.

He is my ref-uge;
will not be shak-en.
God de-liv-ers me and ex-alts me;
God is my strong pro-tec-tor and my shel-ter.

Trust in him at all times, you peo-ple!
Pour out your hearts be-fore him!
God is our shel-ter!
Men are noth-ing but mere breath;

Hu-man be-ings are un-re-li-a-ble.
When they are weighed in the scales,
all of them to-geth-er are light-er than air.
Do not trust in what you can gain by op-pres-sion!

Do not put false con-fi-dence
in what you can gain by rob-ber-y!
If wealth in-creas-es,
do not be-come at-tached to it!

God has de-clared one prin-ci-ple;
two prin-ci-ples have heard:
Our God is strong,
and you, O Lord, dem-on-strate loy-al love.

For you re-pay men for what they do.
Trust in God at all times, you peo-ple!
Pour out your hearts be-fore him,
For our God is our shel-ter!

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 Ecclesiastes 8:14-9:10



Here is another enigma that occurs on earth:
Sometimes there are righteous people who get what the wicked deserve,
and sometimes there are wicked people who get what the righteous deserve.
I said, “This also is an enigma. ”

So I recommend the enjoyment of life,
for there is nothing better on earth for a person to do except to eat, drink, and enjoy life.
So joy will accompany him in his toil
during the days of his life which God gives him on earth.


When I tried to gain wisdom
and to observe the activity on earth –
even though it prevents anyone from sleeping day or night –


then I discerned all that God has done:
No one really comprehends what happens on earth.
Despite all human efforts to discover it, no one can ever grasp it.
Even if a wise person claimed that he understood,
he would not really comprehend it.


So I reflected on all this, attempting to clear it all up.
I concluded that the righteous and the wise, as well as their works, are in the hand of God;
whether a person will be loved or hated –
no one knows what lies ahead.


Everyone shares the same fate –
the righteous and the wicked,
the good and the bad,
the ceremonially clean and unclean,
those who offer sacrifices and those who do not.
What happens to the good person, also happens to the sinner;
what happens to those who make vows, also happens to those who are afraid to make vows.


This is the unfortunate fact about everything that happens on earth:
the same fate awaits everyone.
In addition to this, the hearts of all people are full of evil,
and there is folly in their hearts during their lives – then they die.


But whoever is among the living has hope;
a live dog is better than a dead lion.


For the living know that they will die, but the dead do not know anything;
they have no further reward – and even the memory of them disappears.


What they loved, as well as what they hated and envied, perished long ago,
and they no longer have a part in anything that happens on earth.


Go, eat your food with joy,
and drink your wine with a happy heart,
because God has already approved your works.


Let your clothes always be white,
and do not spare precious ointment on your head.


Enjoy life with your beloved wife during all the days of your fleeting life
that God has given you on earth during all your fleeting days;
for that is your reward in life and in your burdensome work on earth.


Whatever you find to do with your hands,
do it with all your might,
because there is neither work nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom in the grave,
the place where you will eventually go.


Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - Song of Praise

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Glo-ry to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are wor-thy of praise; glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you for the ra-di-ance of your ho-ly Name;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you in the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, seat-ed be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.


A reading from Galatians 4:21-31



Tell me, you who want to be under the law, do you not understand the law? For it is written that Abraham had two sons, one by the slave woman and the other by the free woman. But one, the son by the slave woman, was born by natural descent, while the other, the son by the free woman, was born through the promise. These things may be treated as an allegory, for these women represent two covenants. One is from Mount Sinai bearing children for slavery; this is Hagar. Now Hagar represents Mount Sinai in Arabia and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, for she is in slavery with her children. But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother. For it is written:

Rejoice, O barren woman who does not bear children;
break forth and shout, you who have no birth pains,
because the children of the desolate woman are more numerous
than those of the woman who has a husband. ”

But you, brothers and sisters, are children of the promise like Isaac. But just as at that time the one born by natural descent persecuted the one born according to the Spirit, so it is now. But what does the scripture say? “Throw out the slave woman and her son, for the son of the slave woman will not share the inheritance with the son” of the free woman. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are not children of the slave woman but of the free woman.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - 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.



Tuesday 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.



Tuesday - Our Father

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. 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.



Tuesday - 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.






Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. 
Amen.

A Collect for Peace
O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of 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.
