Morning Song - Friday after Proper 16

Service Date: Friday, August 28, 2020


Pentecost - Friday 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.

Friday - Jubilate

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Be joy-ful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with glad-ness
and come be-fore his pres-ence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

He him-self has made us, and we are his;
we are his peo-ple and the sheep of his pas-ture.
En-ter his gates with thanks-giv-ing;
go into his courts with praise;

Give thanks to him and call up-on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mer-cy is ev-er last-ing;
and his faith-ful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalm 16

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Pro-tect me, O God,
for I have tak-en shel-ter in you.
I say to the Lord,
You are the Lord, my on-ly source of well-being.

As for Gods cho-sen peo-ple who are in the land,
and the lead-ing of-fi-cials I ad-mired so much
their trou-bles mul-ti-ply;
they de-sire oth-er gods.

I will not pour out
drink of-fer-ings of blood to their gods,
nor will I make vows in the name of their gods.
Lord, you give me sta-bil-i-ty and pros-per-i-ty;

You make my fu-ture se-cure.
It is as if I have been giv-en fer-tile fields
or re-ceived a beau-ti-ful tract of land.
I will praise the Lord who guides me;

Yes, dur-ing the night I re-flect and learn.
I con-stant-ly trust in the Lord;
be-cause he is at my right hand,
I will not be shak-en.

So I am hap-py;
and my heart re-joic-es in God
My life is safe.
You will not a-ban-don me to She-ol;

You will not al-low your fol-low-er to see the Pit.
You lead me in the path of life;
I ex-pe-ri-ence ab-so-lute joy in your pres-ence;
you al-ways give me sheer de-light.

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 17

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Lord, con-sid-er my just cause!
Pay at-ten-tion to my cry for help!
Lis-ten to the prayer I sin-cere-ly of-fer!
Make a just de-ci-sion on my be-half!

De-cide what is right!
You have scru-tin-ized my in-ner mo-tives;
you have ex-am-ined me dur-ing the night.
You have care-ful-ly e-val-u-at-ed me,

but you find no sin.
I am de-ter-mined I will say noth-ing sin-ful.
Just as you have com-mand-ed,
I have not fo-llowed in the foot-steps of vio-lent men.

I care-ful-ly o-bey your com-mands;
I do not de-vi-ate from them.
I call to you for you will an-swer me, O God.
Lis-ten to me! Hear what I say!

Ac-com-plish awe-some, faith-ful deeds,
you who pow-er-ful-ly de-liv-er those
who look to you for pro-tec-tion from their en-e-mies.
Pro-tect me as you would the pu-pil of your eye!

Hide me in the shad-ow of your wings!
Pro-tect me from the wick-ed men who at-tack me,
my en-e-mies who crowd a-round me for the kill.
They are cal-loused; they speak ar-ro-gant-ly.

They at-tack me, now they sur-round me;
they in-tend to throw me to the ground.
He is like a li-on that wants to tear its prey to bits,
like a young li-on crouch-ing in hid-den plac-es.

Rise up, Lord! Con-front him!
Knock him down! Use your sword
to res-cue me from the wick-ed man!
Lord, use your pow-er to de-liv-er me

from these mur-der-erz,
from the mur-der-ers of this world!
They en-joy pros-per-i-ty;
you o-ver-whelm them with the rich-es they de-sire.

They have man-y chil-dren,
and leave their wealth to their off-spring.
Be-cause I am in-no-cent I will see your face;
when I a-wake you will re-veal your-self to me.

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 Job 9:1-15, 32-35

Then Job answered:

“Truly, I know that this is so.
But how can a human be just before God?

If someone wishes to contend with him,
he cannot answer him one time in a thousand.

He is wise in heart and mighty in strength –
who has resisted him and remained safe?

He who removes mountains suddenly,
who overturns them in his anger;

he who shakes the earth out of its place
so that its pillars tremble;

he who commands the sun and it does not shine
and seals up the stars;

he alone spreads out the heavens,
and treads on the waves of the sea;

he makes the Bear, Orion, and the Pleiades,
and the constellations of the southern sky;

he does great and unsearchable things,
and wonderful things without number.

If he passes by me, I cannot see him,
if he goes by, I cannot perceive him.

If he snatches away, who can turn him back?
Who dares to say to him, ‘What are you doing?’

God does not restrain his anger;
under him the helpers of Rahab lie crushed.

“How much less, then, can I answer him
and choose my words to argue with him!

Although I am innocent,
I could not answer him;
I could only plead with my judge for mercy.

For he is not a human being like I am,
that I might answer him,
that we might come together in judgment.

Nor is there an arbiter between us,
who might lay his hand on us both,

who would take his rod away from me
so that his terror would not make me afraid.

Then would I speak and not fear him,
but it is not so with me.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Simeon

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glo-ry of your peo-ple Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 10:34-48

Then Peter started speaking: “I now truly understand that God does not show favoritism in dealing with people, but in every nation the person who fears him and does what is right is welcomed before him. You know the message he sent to the people of Israel, proclaiming the good news of peace through Jesus Christ (he is Lord of all) – you know what happened throughout Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John announced: with respect to Jesus from Nazareth, that God anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with him. We are witnesses of all the things he did both in Judea and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him up on the third day and caused him to be seen, not by all the people, but by us, the witnesses God had already chosen, who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to warn them that he is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead. About him all the prophets testify, that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”

While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all those who heard the message. The circumcised believers who had accompanied Peter were greatly astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles, for they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God. Then Peter said, “No one can withhold the water for these people to be baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we did, can he?” So he gave orders to have them baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay for several days.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of the Redeemed

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

O rul-er of the u-ni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing hu-man un-der-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of right-eous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ages.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the prais-es of your Name?
for you on-ly are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and ho-ly works
have been re-vealed. Al-le-lu-ia, a-men!

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.


Friday 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.

Friday - Our Father

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. A-men.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
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.

Friday - Morning Suffrages A

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

Let your way be known up-on earth;
Your sav-ing health a-mong all na-tions.
Let not the need-y, O Lord, be for-got-ten;
Nor the hope of the poor be tak-en a-way.

Cre-ate in us clean hearts, O God;
And sus-tain us with your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.

Collects of the Day

O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.


A Collect for Fridays

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


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.


General Thanksgiving

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Al-might-y God, Fa-ther of all mer-cies,
we your un-wor-thy serv-ants give you hum-ble thanks
for all your good-ness and lov-ing kind-ness
to us and to all whom you have made.

We bless you for our cre-a-tion, pres-er-va-tion,
and all the bles-sings of this life;
but a-bove all for your im-meas-ur-a-ble love
in the re-demp-tion of the world by our Lord Je-sus Christ;

for the means of grace, and for the hope of glo-ry.
And, we pray, give us such an a-ware-ness of your mer-cy,
that with tru-ly thank-ful hearts
we may show forth your praise,

not on-ly with our lips, but in our lives,
by giv-ing up our selves to your ser-vice,
and by walk-ing be-fore you
in ho-li-ness and right-eous-ness all our days;

through Je-sus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
be ho-nor and glo-ry
through-out all the ag-es. A-men.

Let us bless the Lord. Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia
