Invitation



Pentecost - Friday 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.


Friday - Venite


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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 a 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!


Psalms



Psalm 69


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



De-liv-er me, O God,
for the wat-er has reached my neck.
I sink into the deep mire
where there is no sol-id ground;

I am in deep wat-er,
and the cur-rent o-ver-pow-ers me.
I am ex-haust-ed from shout-ing for help;
my throat is sore; my eyes grow tired of look-ing for my God.

Those who hate me with-out cause
are more nu-mer-ous than the hairs of my head.
Those who want to de-stroy me,
my en-e-mies for no rea-son, out-num-ber me.

They make me re-pay what I did not steal!
O God, you are a-ware of my fool-ish sins;
my guilt is not hid-den from you.
Let none who re-ly on you be dis-graced be-cause of me,

O Sove-reign Lord of Heav-en’s Ar-my!
Let none who seek you be a-shamed
be-cause of me, O God of Is-ra-el!
For I suf-fer hu-mil-i-a-tion for your sake

and am thor-ough-ly dis-graced.
My own broth-ers treat me like a stran-ger;
they act as if I were a for-eign-er.
Cer-tain-ly zeal for your house con-sumes me;

I en-dure the in-sults of those who in-sult you.
I weep and re-frain from eat-ing food,
which causes oth-ers to in-sult me.
I wear sack-cloth and they ridi-cule me.

Those who sit at the cit-y gate gos-sip about me;
drunk-ards mock me in their song.
O Lord, may you hear my prayer
and be fa-vor-ably dis-posed to me!

O God, be-cause of your great loy-al love,
an-swer me with your faith-ful de-liv-er-ance!
Res-cue me from the mud! Don’t let me sink!
De-liv-er me from those who hate me, from the deep wat-er!

Don’t let the cur-rent o-ver-pow-er me!
Don’t let the deep swal-low me up!
Don’t let the Pit de-vour me!
An-swer me, O Lord, for your loy-al love is good!

Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion, turn toward me!
Do not ig-nore your serv-ant, for I am in trou-ble!
An-swer me right a-way!
Come near me and re-deem me!

Be-cause of my en-e-my, res-cue me!
You know how I am in-sult-ed,
hu-mil-i-at-ed and dis-graced;
you can see all my en-e-mies.

Their in-sults are pain-ful and make me lose heart;
I look for sym-pathy, but re-ceive none,
for com-fort-ers, but find none.
They put bit-ter poi-son into my food,

and to quench my thirst they give me vine-gar to drink.
May their din-ing ta-ble be-come a trap be-fore them!
May it be a snare for that group of friends!
May their eyes be blind-ed!

Make them shake vio-lent-ly!
Pour out your judg-ment on them!
May your rag-ing an-ger o-ver-take them!
May their camp be-come des-o-late, their tents un-in-habit-ed!

For they har-ass the one whom you dis-ci-pline;
they spread the news a-bout the suf-fer-ing
of those whom you pun-ish.
Hold them ac-count-able for all their sins!

Do not vin-di-cate them!
May their names be de-let-ed from the scroll of the living!
Do not let their names be list-ed with the god-ly!
I am op-pressed and suf-fer-ing!

O God, de-liv-er and pro-tect me!
I will sing prais-es to God's name!
I will mag-ni-fy him as I give him thanks!
That will please the Lord more than a bull with horns and hooves.

The op-pressed look on; let them re-joice!
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!
For the Lord list-ens to the need-y;
he does not de-spise his cap-tive peo-ple.

Let the heav-ens and the earth praise him,
a-long with the seas and eve-ry-thing that swims in them!
For God will de-liv-er Zi-on
and re-build the cit-ies of Ju-dah,

and his peo-ple will a-gain live in them and pos-sess Zi-on.
The de-scen-dants of his serv-ants will in-her-it it,
and those who are loy-al to him will live in it.
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!

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 Judges 5:1-18


On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang this victory song:


“When the leaders took the lead in Israel,
When the people answered the call to war –
Praise the Lord!


Hear, O kings!
Pay attention, O rulers!
I will sing to the Lord!
I will sing to the Lord God of Israel!


O Lord, when you departed from Seir,
when you marched from Edom’s plains,
the earth shook, the heavens poured down,
the clouds poured down rain.


The mountains trembled before the Lord, the God of Sinai;
before the Lord God of Israel.


In the days of Shamgar son of Anath,
in the days of Jael caravans disappeared;
travelers had to go on winding side roads.


Warriors were scarce,
they were scarce in Israel,
until you arose, Deborah,
until you arose as a motherly protector in Israel.


God chose new leaders,
then fighters appeared in the city gates;
but, I swear, not a shield or spear could be found,
among forty military units in Israel.


My heart went out to Israel’s leaders,
to the people who answered the call to war.
Praise the Lord!


You who ride on light-colored female donkeys,
who sit on saddle blankets,
you who walk on the road, pay attention!


Hear the sound of those who divide the sheep among the watering places;
there they tell of the Lord’s victorious deeds,
the victorious deeds of his warriors in Israel.
Then the Lord’s people went down to the city gates –


Wake up, wake up, Deborah!
Wake up, wake up, sing a song!
Get up, Barak!
Capture your prisoners of war, son of Abinoam!


Then the survivors came down to the mighty ones;
the Lord’s people came down to me as warriors.


They came from Ephraim, who uprooted Amalek,
they follow after you, Benjamin, with your soldiers.
From Makir leaders came down,
from Zebulun came the ones who march carrying an officer’s staff.


Issachar’s leaders were with Deborah,
the men of Issachar supported Barak;
into the valley they were sent under Barak’s command.
Among the clans of Reuben there was intense heart searching.


Why do you remain among the sheepfolds,
listening to the shepherds playing their pipes for their flocks?
As for the clans of Reuben – there was intense searching of heart.


Gilead stayed put beyond the Jordan River.
As for Dan – why did he seek temporary employment in the shipyards?
Asher remained on the seacoast,
he stayed by his harbors.


The men of Zebulun were not concerned about their lives;
Naphtali charged on to the battlefields.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glo-ry of your peo-ple Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 2:1-21


Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them.

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven residing in Jerusalem. When this sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. Completely baffled, they said, “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that each one of us hears them in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and the province of Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs – we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great deeds God has done!” All were astounded and greatly confused, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” But others jeered at the speakers, saying, “They are drunk on new wine!”

But Peter stood up with the eleven, raised his voice, and addressed them: “You men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, know this and listen carefully to what I say. In spite of what you think, these men are not drunk, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. But this is what was spoken about through the prophet Joel:

And in the last days it will be, God says,

that I will pour out my Spirit on all people,

and your sons and your daughters will prophesy,

and your young men will see visions,

and your old men will dream dreams.

Even on my servants, both men and women,

I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.

And I will perform wonders in the sky above

and miraculous signs on the earth below,

blood and fire and clouds of smoke.

The sun will be changed to darkness

and the moon to blood

before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes.

And then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of the Redeemed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Prayers



Friday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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.

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.




Friday - Morning Suffrages B


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Save your peo-ple, Lord,
and bless your in-her-it-ance;
Gov-ern and guide them, Lord
and up-hold them, now and al-ways.

Day by day we bless you;
We praise your name for ev-er.
Lord, keep us from all sin to-day;
Have mer-cy up-on us, Lord, have mer-cy.

Lord, show us your love and mer-cy;
For we put our trust in you.
In you, Lord, is our hope;
And we shall nev-er hope in vain.




Collects of the Day


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.

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.

Al-might-y God, Fa-ther of all mer-cies,
we your un-wor-thy serv-ants give you hum-ble thanks
for all your good-ness and lov-ing kind-ness
to us and to all whom you have made.

We bless you for our cre-a-tion, pres-er-va-tion,

and by walk-ing be-fore you
in ho-li-ness and right-eous-ness all our days;
