Invitation



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.


Psalms



Psalm 31


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



In you, O Lord, I have tak-en shel-ter!
Nev-er let me be hu-mil-i-at-ed!
Vin-di-cate me by res-cu-ing me!
List-en to me! Quick-ly de-liv-er me!

Be my pro-tec-tor and ref-uge,
a strong-hold where I can be safe!
For you are my high ridge and my strong-hold;
for the sake of your own rep-u-ta-tion

you lead me and guide me.
You will free me from the net they hid for me,
for you are my place of ref-uge.
Into your hand I en-trust my life;

you will res-cue me,
O Lord, the faith-ful God.
I hate those who serve worth-less i-dols,
but I trust in the Lord.

I will be hap-py and re-joice in your faith-ful-ness,
be-cause you no-tice my pain
and you are a-ware of how dis-tressed I am.
You do not de-liv-er me o-ver to the pow-er of the en-e-my;

you en-a-ble me to stand in a wide o-pen place.
Have mer-cy on me, Lord, for I am in dis-tress!
My eyes grow dim from suf-fer-ing.
I have lost all my strength.

For my life nears its end in pain;
my years draw to a close as I groan.
My strength fails me be-cause of my sin,
and my bones be-come brit-tle.

Be-cause of all my en-e-my, peo-ple dis-dain me;
my neigh-bors are ap-palled by my suf-fer-ing
those who know me are hor-ri-fied by my con-di-tion;
those who see me in the street run a-way from me.

I am for-got-ten,
like a dead man no one thinks a-bout;
I am re-gard-ed as worth-less,
I am like a bro-ken jar.

For I hear what so man-y are say-ing,
the ter-ri-fy-ing news that comes from eve-ry di-rec-tion.
When they plot to-geth-er a-gainst me,
they fig-ure out how they can take my life.

But I trust in you, O Lord!
I de-clare, You are my God!
You de-ter-mine my des-ti-ny!
Res-cue me from the pow-er of my en-e-mies

and from those who chase me.
Smile on your loy-al serv-ant!
De-liv-er me be-cause of your faith-ful-ness!
O Lord, do not let me be hu-mil-i-at-ed,

for I call out to you, my God!
May e-vil men be hu-mil-i-at-ed!
May they go wail-ing to the grave!
May ly-ing lips be si-lenced;

lips that speakde-fi-ant-ly a-gainst the in-no-cent
with ar-ro-gance and con-tempt!
How great is your fa-vor,
which you store up for your peo-ple!

In plain sight of eve-ry-one
you be-stow it on those who take shel-ter in you.
You hide them with you,
where they are safe from the at-tacks of men;

you con-ceal them in a shel-ter,
where they are safe from slan-der-ous at-tacks.
The Lord de-serves praise
for he dem-on-strat-ed his a-maz-ing faith-ful-ness to me

when I was be-sieged by en-e-mies.
I jumped to con-clu-sions and said,
I am cut off from your pres-ence!
But you heard my plea for mer-cy

when I cried out to you for help.
Love the Lord, all you faith-ful fol-low-ers of his!
The Lord pro-tects those who have in-teg-ri-ty,
but he pays back in full the one who acts ar-ro-gant-ly.

Be strong and con-fi-dent,
all you who wait on the Lord!
In you, O Lord, I have tak-en shel-ter!
Nev-er let me be 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 Job 19:1-7, 14-27


Then Job answered:


“How long will you torment me
and crush me with your words?


These ten times you have been reproaching me;
you are not ashamed to attack me!


But even if it were true that I have erred,
my error remains solely my concern!


If indeed you would exalt yourselves above me
and plead my disgrace against me,


know then that God has wronged me
and encircled me with his net.


“If I cry out, ‘Violence!’
I receive no answer;
I cry for help,
but there is no justice.


My kinsmen have failed me;
my friends have forgotten me.


My guests and my servant girls
consider me a stranger;
I am a foreigner in their eyes.


I summon my servant, but he does not respond,
even though I implore him with my own mouth.


My breath is repulsive to my wife;
I am loathsome to my brothers.


Even youngsters have scorned me;
when I get up, they scoff at me.


All my closest friends detest me;
and those whom I love have turned against me.


My bones stick to my skin and my flesh;
I have escaped alive with only the skin of my teeth.


Have pity on me, my friends, have pity on me,
for the hand of God has struck me.


Why do you pursue me like God does?
Will you never be satiated with my flesh?


“O that my words were written down,
O that they were written on a scroll,


that with an iron chisel and with lead
they were engraved in a rock forever!


As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives,
and that as the last
he will stand upon the earth.


And after my skin has been destroyed,
yet in my flesh I will see God,


whom I will see for myself,
and whom my own eyes will behold,
and not another.
My heart grows faint within 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 13:13-25


Then Paul and his companions put out to sea from Paphos and came to Perga in Pamphylia, but John left them and returned to Jerusalem. Moving on from Perga, they arrived at Pisidian Antioch, and on the Sabbath day they went into the synagogue and sat down. After the reading from the law and the prophets, the leaders of the synagogue sent them a message, saying, “Brothers, if you have any message of exhortation for the people, speak it.” So Paul stood up, gestured with his hand and said,

“Men of Israel, and you Gentiles who fear God, listen: The God of this people Israel chose our ancestors and made the people great during their stay as foreigners in the country of Egypt, and with uplifted arm he led them out of it. For a period of about forty years he put up with them in the wilderness. After he had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, he gave his people their land as an inheritance. All this took about four hundred fifty years. After this he gave them judges until the time of Samuel the prophet. Then they asked for a king, and God gave them Saul son of Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, who ruled forty years. After removing him, God raised up David their king. He testified about him: ‘I have found David the son of Jesse to be a man after my heart, who will accomplish everything I want him to do.’ From the descendants of this man God brought to Israel a Savior, Jesus, just as he promised. Before Jesus arrived, John had proclaimed a baptism for repentance to all the people of Israel. But while John was completing his mission, he said repeatedly, ‘What do you think I am? I am not he. But look, one is coming after me. I am not worthy to untie the sandals on his feet!’

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of the u-ni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,

Your ways are ways of right-eous-ness and truth,

be-cause your just and ho-ly works

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



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.

Amen.

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.

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.





General Thanksgiving

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.
