Invitation



Pentecost - Saturday 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.


Saturday - 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 75


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



We give you thanks!
We give thanks to you, O God!
You re-veal your pres-ence;
peo-ple tell a-bout your a-maz-ing deeds.

God says, At the ap-point-ed times, I judge fair-ly.
When the earth and all its in-habit-ants dis-solve in fear,
I make its pil-lars se-cure.
I say to the proud, Do not be proud,

And to the wick-ed,
Do not be so con-fi-dent of vic-to-ry!
Do not be so cer-tain you have won!
Do not speak with your head held so high!

For vic-to-ry does not come from the east or west,
or from the wil-der-ness.
For God is the judge!
He brings one down and ex-alts an-oth-er.

For the Lord holds in his hand a cup full of foam-ing wine
mixed with spice, and pours it out.
Sure-ly all the wick-ed of the earth
will slurp it up and drink it to its ver-y last drop.

As for me, I will con-tin-ual-ly tell what you have done;
I will sing prais-es to the God of Ja-cob!
God says, I will bring down all the pow-er of the wick-ed;
the god-ly will be vic-to-ri-ous.

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 76


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



God has re-vealed him-self in Ju-dah;
in Is-ra-el his rep-u-ta-tion is great.
He lives in Sa-lem; he dwells in Zi-on.
There he shat-tered the ar-rows,

He shat-tered the shield, the sword,
and the rest of the weap-ons of war.
You shine bright-ly and re-veal your maj-es-ty,
as you de-scend from the hills where you killed your prey.

The brave-heart-ed were plun-dered; they fell a-sleep.
All the war-ri-ors were help-less.
At the sound of your bat-tle cry, O God of Ja-cob,
both rid-er and horse fell a-sleep.

You are awe-some! Yes, you!
Who can with-stand your in-tense an-ger?
From heav-en you an-nounced what their pun-ish-ment would be.
The earth was a-fraid and si-lent when God a-rose to ex-e-cute judg-ment,

and to de-liv-er all the op-pressed of the earth.
Cer-tain-ly your an-gry judg-ment up-on men will bring you praise;
you re-veal your an-ger in full meas-ure.
Make vows to the Lord your God and re-pay them!

Let all those who sur-round him
bring trib-ute to the awe-some one!
He hum-bles princ-es;
the kings of the earth re-gard him as awe-some.

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 5:19-31



Kings came, they fought;
the kings of Canaan fought,
at Taanach by the waters of Megiddo,
but they took no silver as plunder.


From the sky the stars fought,
from their paths in the heavens they fought against Sisera.


The Kishon River carried them off;
the river confronted them – the Kishon River.
Step on the necks of the strong!


The horses’ hooves pounded the ground;
the stallions galloped madly.


‘Call judgment down on Meroz,’ says the Lord’s angel;
‘Be sure to call judgment down on those who live there,
because they did not come to help in the Lord’s battle,
to help in the Lord’s battle against the warriors.’


The most rewarded of women should be Jael,
the wife of Heber the Kenite!
She should be the most rewarded of women who live in tents.


He asked for water,
and she gave him milk;
in a bowl fit for a king,
she served him curds.


Her left hand reached for the tent peg,
her right hand for the workmen’s hammer.
She “hammered” Sisera,
she shattered his skull,
she smashed his head,
she drove the tent peg through his temple.


Between her feet he collapsed,
he fell limp and was lifeless;
between her feet he collapsed and fell,
in the spot where he collapsed,
there he fell – violently killed!


Through the window she looked;
Sisera’s mother cried out through the lattice:
‘Why is his chariot so slow to return?
Why are the hoofbeats of his chariot-horses delayed?’


The wisest of her ladies answer;
indeed she even thinks to herself,


‘No doubt they are gathering and dividing the plunder –
a girl or two for each man to rape!
Sisera is grabbing up colorful cloth,
he is grabbing up colorful embroidered cloth,
two pieces of colorful embroidered cloth,
for the neck of the plunderer!’


May all your enemies perish like this, O Lord!
But may those who love you shine
like the rising sun at its brightest!”

And the land had rest for forty years.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glo-ry of the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness co-vers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But o-ver you the Lord will rise,
and his glo-ry will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will nev-er be shut.
They will call you, The Cit-y of the Lord,
The Zi-on of the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your wall, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will no more be your light by day;
by night you will not need the bright-ness of the moon.
The Lord will be your ev-er-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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 2:22-36


“Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man clearly attested to you by God with powerful deeds, wonders, and miraculous signs that God performed among you through him, just as you yourselves know – this man, who was handed over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you executed by nailing him to a cross at the hands of Gentiles. But God raised him up, having released him from the pains of death, because it was not possible for him to be held in its power. For David says about him,

I saw the Lord always in front of me,

for he is at my right hand so that I will not be shaken.

Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue rejoiced;

my body also will live in hope,

because you will not leave my soul in Hades,

nor permit your Holy One to experience decay.

You have made known to me the paths of life;

you will make me full of joy with your presence.’

“Brothers, I can speak confidently to you about our forefather David, that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. So then, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants on his throne, David by foreseeing this spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did his body experience decay. This Jesus God raised up, and we are all witnesses of it. So then, exalted to the right hand of God, and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, he has poured out what you both see and hear. For David did not ascend into heaven, but he himself says,

The Lord said to my lord,

Sit at my right hand

until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”’

Therefore let all the house of Israel know beyond a doubt that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the pow-ers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Ho-ly, ho-ly, ho-ly Lord, God of pow-er and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glo-ri-ous com-pa-ny of a-pos-tles praise you.
The no-ble fel-low-ship of proph-ets praise you.
The white robed ar-my of mar-tyrs praise you.
Through-out the world the ho-ly Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of maj-es-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son, wor-thy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, ad-vo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You o-ver-came the sting of death
and o-pened the king-dom of heav-en to all be-liev-ers.
You are seat-ed at Gods right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ev-er-last-ing.


Prayers



Saturday 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.

now and for ev-er. A-men.
