Invitation



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, 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.


Tuesday - 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 5


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Lis-ten to what I say, Lord!
Care-ful-ly con-sid-er my com-plaint!
Pay at-ten-tion to my cry for help,
O my king and my God,

For I am pray-ing to you!
Lord, in the morn-ing you will hear me;
in the morn-ing I will pre-sent my case to you
and then wait ex-pect-ant-ly for an an-swer.

Cer-tain-ly you are not a God who ap-proves of e-vil;
e-vil peo-ple can-not dwell with you.
Ar-ro-gant peo-ple can-not stand in your pres-ence;
you hate all who be-have wick-ed-ly.

You de-stroy li-ars;
the Lord de-spis-es vio-lent and de-ceit-ful peo-ple.
But as for me, be-cause of your great faith-ful-ness
I will en-ter your house;

I will bow down
toward your ho-ly tem-ple as I wor-ship you.
Lord, lead me in your right-eous-ness
be-cause of those who wait to am-bush me,

Re-move the ob-sta-cles
in the way in which you are guid-ing me!
For they do not speak the truth;
their stom-achs are like the place of de-struc-tion,

their throats like an o-pen grave,
their tongues like a steep slope lead-ing into it.
Con-demn them, O God!
May their own schemes be their down-fall!

Drive them a-way
be-cause of their man-y acts of in-sur-rec-tion,
for they have re-belled a-gainst you.
But may all who take shel-ter in you be hap-py!

May they con-tin-ual-ly shout for joy!
Shel-ter them so that those who are loy-al to you may re-joice!
Cer-tain-ly you re-ward the god-ly, Lord.
Like a shield you pro-tect them in your good fa-vor.

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 6


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, do not re-buke me in your an-ger!
Do not dis-ci-pline me in your rag-ing fu-ry!
Have mer-cy on me, Lord, for I am frail!
Heal me, Lord, for my bones are shak-ing!

I am ab-so-lute-ly ter-ri-fied,
and you, Lord how long will this con-tin-ue?
Re-lent, Lord, res-cue me!
De-liv-er me be-cause of your faith-ful-ness!

For no one re-mem-bers you
who a-bides in the realm of death,
In She-ol who gives you thanks?
I am ex-haust-ed as I groan;

All night long I drench my bed in tears;
my tears sat-u-rate the cush-ion be-neath me.
My eyes grow dim from suf-fer-ing;
they grow weak be-cause of all my en-e-mies.

Turn back from me, all you who be-have wick-ed-ly,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weep-ing!
The Lord has heard my ap-peal for mer-cy;
the Lord has ac-cept-ed my prayer.

They will be hu-mil-i-at-ed
and ab-so-lute-ly ter-ri-fied!
All my en-e-mies
will turn back and be sud-den-ly hu-mil-i-at-ed!

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 Numbers 35:1-15,30-34


Then the Lord spoke to Moses in the rift valley plains of Moab along the Jordan near Jericho. He said: “Instruct the Israelites to give the Levites towns to live in from the inheritance the Israelites will possess. You must also give the Levites grazing land around the towns. Thus they will have towns in which to live, and their grazing lands will be for their cattle, for their possessions, and for all their animals. The grazing lands around the towns that you will give to the Levites must extend to a distance of 500 yards from the town wall.

“You must measure from outside the wall of the town on the east 1,000 yards, and on the south side 1,000 yards, and on the west side 1,000 yards, and on the north side 1,000 yards, with the town in the middle. This territory must belong to them as grazing land for the towns. Now from these towns that you will give to the Levites you must select six towns of refuge to which a person who has killed someone may flee. And you must give them forty-two other towns.

“So the total of the towns you will give the Levites is forty-eight. You must give these together with their grazing lands. The towns you will give must be from the possession of the Israelites. From the larger tribes you must give more; and from the smaller tribes fewer. Each must contribute some of its own towns to the Levites in proportion to the inheritance allocated to each.

Then the Lord spoke to Moses: “Speak to the Israelites and tell them, ‘When you cross over the Jordan River into the land of Canaan, you must then designate some towns as towns of refuge for you, to which a person who has killed someone unintentionally may flee. And they must stand as your towns of refuge from the avenger in order that the killer may not die until he has stood trial before the community. These towns that you must give shall be your six towns for refuge.

“You must give three towns on this side of the Jordan, and you must give three towns in the land of Canaan; they must be towns of refuge. These six towns will be places of refuge for the Israelites, and for the resident foreigner, and for the settler among them, so that anyone who kills any person accidentally may flee there.

“Whoever kills any person, the murderer must be put to death by the testimony of witnesses, but one witness cannot testify against any person to cause him to be put to death. Moreover, you must not accept a ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death; he must surely be put to death. And you must not accept a ransom for anyone who has fled to a town of refuge, to allow him to return home and live on his own land before the death of the high priest.

“You must not pollute the land where you live, for blood defiles the land, and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed there, except by the blood of the person who shed it. Therefore do not defile the land that you will inhabit, in which I live, for I the Lord live among the Israelites. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song of Praise


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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 Romans 8:31-39


What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Indeed, he who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, freely give us all things? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is the one who will condemn? Christ is the one who died (and more than that, he was raised), who is at the right hand of God, and who also is interceding for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will trouble, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, “For your sake we encounter death all day long; we were considered as sheep to be slaughtered. ” No, in all these things we have complete victory through him who loved us! For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor heavenly rulers, nor things that are present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Prayers



Tuesday 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.

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.

Collect of the Day


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.

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.
