Invitation



Pentecost - Wednesday 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.


Wednesday - 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 38


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, do not con-tin-ue to re-buke me in your an-ger!
Do not con-tin-ue to pun-ish me in your rag-ing fu-ry!
For your ar-rows pierce me,
and your hand press-es me down.

My whole bod-y is sick
be-cause of your judg-ment;
I am de-prived of health be-cause of my sin.
For my sins o-ver-whelm me;

like a heav-y load,
they are too much for me to bear.
My wounds are infected and starting to smell,
be-cause of my fool-ish sins.

I am dazed and com-plete-ly hu-mil-i-at-ed;
all day long I walk a-round mourn-ing.
For I am o-ver-come with shame
and my whole bod-y is sick.

I am numb with pain
and se-vere-ly bat-tered;
I groan loud-ly
be-cause of the anx-i-e-ty I feel.

O Lord, you un-der-stand my heart's de-sire;
my groaning is not hid-den from you.
My heart beats so quick-ly;
my strength leaves me; I can hard-ly see.

Be-cause of my con-di-tion,
e-ven my friends and ac-quaint-ances
keep their dis-tance;
my neigh-bors stand far a-way.

Those who seek my life try to en-trap me;
those who want to harm me speak de-struc-tive words;
all day long they say de-ceit-ful things.
But I am like a deaf man I hear noth-ing;

I am like a mute who can-not speak.
I am like a man who can-not hear
and is in-ca-pa-ble of ar-gu-ing his de-fense.
Yet I wait for you, O Lord!

You will re-spond, O Lord, my God!
I have prayed for de-liv-er-ance,
be-cause oth-er-wise they will gloat o-ver me;
when my foot slips they will ar-ro-gant-ly taunt me.

For I am a-bout to stum-ble,
and I am in con-stant pain.
Yes, I con-fess my wrong-do-ing,
and I am con-cerned a-bout my sins.

But those who are my en-e-mies for no rea-son are nu-mer-ous;
those who hate me without cause out-num-ber me.
They re-pay me e-vil for the good I have done;
though I have tried to do good to them,

They hurl ac-cu-sa-tions at me.
Do not a-ban-don me, O Lord!
My God, do not re-main far a-way from me!
Hur-ry and help me, O Lord, my de-liv-er-er!

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 Joshua 3:1-13


Bright and early the next morning Joshua and the Israelites left Shittim and came to the Jordan. They camped there before crossing the river. After three days the leaders went through the camp and commanded the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God being carried by the Levitical priests, you must leave here and walk behind it. But stay about three thousand feet behind it. Keep your distance so you can see which way you should go, for you have not traveled this way before. ”

Joshua told the people, “Ritually consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will perform miraculous deeds among you. ”Joshua told the priests, “Pick up the ark of the covenant and pass on ahead of the people. ” So they picked up the ark of the covenant and went ahead of the people.

The Lord told Joshua, “This very day I will begin to honor you before all Israel so they will know that I am with you just as I was with Moses. Instruct the priests carrying the ark of the covenant, ‘When you reach the bank of the Jordan River, wade into the water. ’”

Joshua told the Israelites, “Come here and listen to the words of the Lord your God!” Joshua continued, “This is how you will know the living God is among you and that he will truly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, and Jebusites. Look! The ark of the covenant of the Lord of the whole earth is ready to enter the Jordan ahead of you. Now select for yourselves twelve men from the tribes of Israel, one per tribe. When the feet of the priests carrying the ark of the Lord, the Lord of the whole earth, touch the water of the Jordan, the water coming downstream toward you will stop flowing and pile up. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-y sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from the hands of our en-e-mies,
Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In the ten-der com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and the shad-ow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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 Romans 11:25-36


For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers and sisters, so that you may not be conceited: A partial hardening has happened to Israel until the full number of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written:

The Deliverer will come out of Zion;

he will remove ungodliness from Jacob.

And this is my covenant with them,

when I take away their sins.

In regard to the gospel they are enemies for your sake, but in regard to election they are dearly loved for the sake of the fathers. For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable. Just as you were formerly disobedient to God, but have now received mercy due to their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that, by the mercy shown to you, they too may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all people to disobedience so that he may show mercy to them all.

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how unfathomable his ways!

For who has known the mind of the Lord,

or who has been his counselor?

Or who has first given to God,

that God needs to repay him?

For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever! Amen.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, O 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.


Prayers



Wednesday 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.
