Invitation



Pentecost - Wednesday 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.


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 119: 145-176


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



I cried out with all my heart,
Hear and an-swer me, O Lord!
I will ob-serve your stat-utes.
I have cried out to you;

Please de-liv-er me,
so that I can keep your rules.
I am up be-fore dawn cry-ing for help.
I find hope in your word.

My eyes an-tic-i-pate the night-time hours,
so that I can#med]-i-tate on your word.
Lis-ten to me be-cause of your loy-al love!
O Lord, re-vive me, as you typ-i-cal-ly do!

Those who are ea-ger to do wrong draw near;
they are far from your law.
You are near, O Lord,
and all your com-mands are re-li-a-ble.

I learned long a-go
that you or-dained your rules to last.
See my pain and res-cue me!
For I do not for-get your law.

Fight for me and de-fend me!
Re-vive me with your word!
The wick-ed have no chance for de-liv-er-ance,
for they do not seek your stat-utes.

Your com-pas-sion is great, O Lord.
Re-vive me, as you typ-i-cal-ly do!
The en-e-mies who chase me are nu-mer-ous.
Yet I do not turn a-side from your rules.

I take note of the treach-er-ous and de-spise them,
be-cause they do not keep your in-struc-tions.
See how I love your pre-cepts!
O Lord, re-vive me with your loy-al love!

Your in-struc-tions are to-tal-ly re-li-a-ble;
all your just reg-u-la-tions en-dure.
Rul-ers pur-sue me for no rea-son,
yet I am more a-fraid of dis-o-bey-ing your in-struc-tions.

I re-joice in your in-struc-tions,
like one who finds much plun-der.
I love your law;
I hate and de-spise de-ceit;

Sev-en times a day I praise you
be-cause of your just reg-u-la-tions.
Those who love your law are com-plete-ly se-cure;
noth-ing caus-es them to stum-ble.

I hope for your de-liv-er-ance,
O Lord, I o-bey your com-mands.
I keep your rules;
I love them all great-ly.

I keep your pre-cepts and rules,
for you are a-ware of eve-ry-thing I do.
Lis-ten to my cry for help, O Lord!
Give me in-sight by your word!

Lis-ten to my ap-peal for mer-cy!
De-liv-er me, as you prom-ised.
May praise flow free-ly from my lips,
for you teach me your stat-utes.

May my tongue sing a-bout your in-struc-tions,
for all your com-mands are just.
May your hand help me,
for I choose to o-bey your pre-cepts.

I long for your de-liv-er-ance, O Lord;
I find de-light in your law.
May I live and praise you!
May your reg-u-la-tions help me!

I have wan-dered off like a lost sheep.
Come look-ing for your serv-ant,
for I do not for-get your com-mands.
Your com-pas-sion is great, O Lord.

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 22:41-23:12


Then on the next morning Balak took Balaam, and brought him up to Bamoth Baal. From there he saw the extent of the nation.

Balaam said to Balak, “Build me seven altars here, and prepare for me here seven bulls and seven rams. ” So Balak did just as Balaam had said. Balak and Balaam then offered on each altar a bull and a ram. Balaam said to Balak, “Station yourself by your burnt offering, and I will go off; perhaps the Lord will come to meet me, and whatever he reveals to me I will tell you. ” Then he went to a deserted height.

Then God met Balaam, who said to him, “I have prepared seven altars, and I have offered on each altar a bull and a ram. ” Then the Lord put a message in Balaam’s mouth and said, “Return to Balak, and speak what I tell you. ”

So he returned to him, and he was still standing by his burnt offering, he and all the princes of Moab. Then Balaam uttered his oracle, saying,
“Balak, the king of Moab, brought me from Aram,
out of the mountains of the east, saying,
‘Come, pronounce a curse on Jacob for me;
come, denounce Israel. ’


How can I curse one whom God has not cursed,
or how can I denounce one whom the Lord has not denounced?


For from the top of the rocks I see them;
from the hills I watch them.
Indeed, a nation that lives alone,
and it will not be reckoned among the nations.


Who can count the dust of Jacob,
or number the fourth part of Israel?
Let me die the death of the upright,
and let the end of my life be like theirs. ”

Then Balak said to Balaam, “What have you done to me? I brought you to curse my enemies, but on the contrary you have only blessed them!”Balaam replied, “Must I not be careful to speak what the Lord has put in my mouth?”

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.


A reading from Romans 7:13-25


Did that which is good, then, become death to me? Absolutely not! But sin, so that it would be shown to be sin, produced death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment sin would become utterly sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual – but I am unspiritual, sold into slavery to sin. For I don’t understand what I am doing. For I do not do what I want – instead, I do what I hate. But if I do what I don’t want, I agree that the law is good. But now it is no longer me doing it, but sin that lives in me. For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For I want to do the good, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but I do the very evil I do not want! Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer me doing it but sin that lives in me.

So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - 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.


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.
