Invitation



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, 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.


Thursday - 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 18:1-20


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I love you, Lord, my source of strength!
The Lord is my high ridge,
my strong-hold, my de-liv-er-er.
My God is my rock-y sum-mit

where I take shel-ter, my shield,
the horn that saves me, and my ref-uge.
I called to the Lord, who is wor-thy of praise,
and I was de-liv-ered from my en-e-my.

The waves of death en-gulfed me,
the cur-rents of cha-os o-ver-whelmed me.
The ropes of She-ol tight-ened a-round me,
the snares of death trapped me.

In my dis-tress I called to the Lord;
I cried out to my God.
From his heav-en-ly tem-ple he heard my voice;
he lis-tened to my cry for help.

The earth heaved and shook;
the roots of the moun-tains trem-bled;
they heaved be-cause he was an-gry.
Smoke as-cend-ed from his nose;

fire de-voured as it came from his mouth;
he hurled down fier-y coals.
He made the sky sink as he de-scend-ed;
a thick cloud was un-der his feet.

He mount-ed a winged an-gel and flew;
he glid-ed on the wings of the wind.
He shroud-ed him-self in dark-ness, in thick rain clouds.
From the bright-ness in front of him came hail and fier-y coals.

The Lord thun-dered in the sky;
and the Most High shout-ed.
He shot his ar-rows and scat-tered them,
man-y light-ning bolts and rout-ed them.

The depths of the sea were ex-posed;
the in-ner re-gions of the world
were un-cov-ered by your bat-tle cry, Lord,
by the pow-er-ful breath from your nose.

He reached down from a-bove
and he took hold of me;
he pulled me from the surg-ing wat-er.
He res-cued me from my strong en-e-mies,

from those who hate me,
for they were too strong for me.
They con-front-ed me in my day of ca-lam-i-ty,
but the Lord de-liv-ered me.

He brought me out into a wide o-pen place;
he de-liv-ered me be-cause he was pleased with me.
The Lord re-paid me for my god-ly deeds;
he re-ward-ed my blame-less be-hav-ior.


Readings



A reading from Deuteronomy 3:18-28


At that time I instructed you as follows: “The Lord your God has given you this land for your possession. You warriors are to cross over before your fellow Israelites equipped for battle. But your wives, children, and livestock (of which I know you have many) may remain in the cities I have given you. You must fight until the Lord gives your countrymen victory as he did you and they take possession of the land that the Lord your God is giving them on the other side of the Jordan River. Then each of you may return to his own territory that I have given you. ”I also commanded Joshua at the same time, “You have seen everything the Lord your God did to these two kings; he will do the same to all the kingdoms where you are going. Do not be afraid of them, for the Lord your God will personally fight for you. ”

Moreover, at that time I pleaded with the Lord, “O, Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show me your greatness and strength. (What god in heaven or earth can rival your works and mighty deeds?)Let me please cross over to see the good land on the other side of the Jordan River – this good hill country and the Lebanon!” But the Lord was angry at me because of you and would not listen to me. Instead, he said to me, “Enough of that! Do not speak to me anymore about this matter. Go up to the top of Pisgah and take a good look to the west, north, south, and east, for you will not be allowed to cross the Jordan. Commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, because he will lead these people over and will enable them to inherit the land you will see. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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.


A reading from Romans 9:19-33


You will say to me then, “Why does he still find fault? For who has ever resisted his will?” But who indeed are you – a mere human being – to talk back to God? Does what is molded say to the molder, “Why have you made me like this?” Has the potter no right to make from the same lump of clay one vessel for special use and another for ordinary use? But what if God, willing to demonstrate his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience the objects of wrath prepared for destruction? And what if he is willing to make known the wealth of his glory on the objects of mercy that he has prepared beforehand for glory –even us, whom he has called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles? As he also says in Hosea:

I will call those who were not my people, ‘My people,’ and I will call her who was unloved,My beloved. ’”

And in the very place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’

there they will be calledsons of the living God. ’”

And Isaiah cries out on behalf of Israel, “Though the number of the children of Israel are as the sand of the sea, only the remnant will be saved,for the Lord will execute his sentence on the earth completely and quickly. ” Just as Isaiah predicted,

“If the Lord of Heaven’s Armies had not left us descendants,

we would have become like Sodom,

and we would have resembled Gomorrah. ”

What shall we say then? – that the Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness obtained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith, but Israel even though pursuing a law of righteousness did not attain it. Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but (as if it were possible) by works. They stumbled over the stumbling stone, just as it is written,

Look, I am laying in Zion a stone that will cause people to stumble

and a rock that will make them fall,

yet the one who believes in him will not be put to shame.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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.


Prayers



Thursday 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.
