Invitation



Pentecost - Saturday 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.


Saturday - 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 20


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



May the Lord an-swer you when you are in trou-ble;
may the God of Ja-cob make you se-cure!
May he send you help from his tem-ple;
from Zi-on may he give you sup-port!

May he take no-tice of all your of-ferings;
may he ac-cept your burnt sac-ri-fice!
May he grant your hearts de-sire;
may he bring all your plans to pass!

Then we will shout for joy o-ver your vic-to-ry;
we will re-joice in the name of our God!
May the Lord grant all your re-quests!
Now I am sure that the Lord will de-liv-er his cho-sen king;

he will in-ter-vene for him from his ho-ly heav-en-ly tem-ple,
and dis-play his might-y a-bil-i-ty to de-liv-er.
Some trust in char-i-ots and oth-ers in hors-es,
but we de-pend on the Lord our God.

They will fall down,
but we will stand firm be-fore God.
The Lord will de-liv-er the king;
he will an-swer us when we call to him for help!

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 21


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, the king re-joic-es
in the strength you have giv-en;
he takes great de-light
in the de-liv-er-ance you pro-vide.

You grant him his heart's de-sire;
you do not re-fuse his re-quest.
For you bring him rich bles-sings;
you place a gold-en crown on his head.

He asked you to sus-tain his life,
and you have grant-ed him long life
and an en-dur-ing dy-nas-ty.
Your de-liv-er-ance brings him great hon-or;

You give him ma-jes-tic splen-dor.
For you grant him last-ing bles-sings;
you give him great joy
by al-low-ing him into your pres-ence.

For the king trusts in the Lord,
and be-cause of the Most High's faith-ful-ness
the king is not shak-en.
You pre-vail o-ver all your en-e-mies;

Your pow-er is too great for those who hate you.
You burn them up like a fier-y fur-nace when you ap-pear;
the Lord an-gri-ly de-vours them;
and his fire con-sumes them.

You de-stroy their off-spring from the earth,
their de-scend-ants from a-mong the hu-man race.
Yes, they in-tend to do you harm;
they dream up schemes, but do not suc-ceed.

For you make them re-treat
when you aim your ar-rows at them.
Rise up, O Lord, in strength!
We will sing and praise your pow-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 Job 9:1; 10:1-9, 16-22


Then Job answered:


“I am weary of my life;
I will complain without restraint;
I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.


I will say to God, ‘Do not condemn me;
tell me why you are contending with me.’


Is it good for you to oppress,
to despise the work of your hands,
while you smile
on the schemes of the wicked?


“Do you have eyes of flesh,
or do you see as a human being sees?


Are your days like the days of a mortal,
or your years like the years of a mortal,


that you must search out my iniquity,
and inquire about my sin,


although you know that I am not guilty,
and that there is no one who can deliver
out of your hand?


“Your hands have shaped me and made me,
but now you destroy me completely.


Remember that you have made me as with the clay;
will you return me to dust?


If I lift myself up,
you hunt me as a fierce lion,
and again you display your power against me.


You bring new witnesses against me,
and increase your anger against me;
relief troops come against me.


“Why then did you bring me out from the womb?
I should have died
and no eye would have seen me!


I should have been as though I had never existed;
I should have been carried
right from the womb to the grave!


Are not my days few?
Cease, then, and leave me alone,
that I may find a little comfort,


before I depart, never to return,
to the land of darkness
and the deepest shadow,


to the land of utter darkness,
like the deepest darkness,
and the deepest shadow and disorder,
where even the light is like darkness.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - 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.


A reading from Acts 11:1-18


Now the apostles and the brothers who were throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles too had accepted the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers took issue with him, saying, “You went to uncircumcised men and shared a meal with them. ” But Peter began and explained it to them point by point, saying, “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision, an object something like a large sheet descending, being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came to me. As I stared I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild animals, reptiles, and wild birds. I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Get up, Peter; slaughter and eat!’ But I said, ‘Certainly not, Lord, for nothing defiled or ritually unclean has ever entered my mouth!’ But the voice replied a second time from heaven, ‘What God has made clean, you must not consider ritually unclean!’ This happened three times, and then everything was pulled up to heaven again. At that very moment, three men sent to me from Caesarea approached the house where we were staying. The Spirit told me to accompany them without hesitation. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. He informed us how he had seen an angel standing in his house and saying, ‘Send to Joppa and summon Simon, who is called Peter, who will speak a message to you by which you and your entire household will be saved. ’ Then as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as he did on us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, as he used to say, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. ’ Therefore if God gave them the same gift as he also gave us after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to hinder God?” When they heard this, they ceased their objections and praised God, saying, “So then, God has granted the repentance that leads to life even to the Gentiles. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the pow-ers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Ho-ly, ho-ly, ho-ly Lord, God of pow-er and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glo-ri-ous com-pa-ny of a-pos-tles praise you.
The no-ble fel-low-ship of proph-ets praise you.
The white robed ar-my of mar-tyrs praise you.
Through-out the world the ho-ly Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of maj-es-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son, wor-thy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, ad-vo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You o-ver-came the sting of death
and o-pened the king-dom of heav-en to all be-liev-ers.
You are seat-ed at Gods right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ev-er-last-ing.


Prayers



Saturday 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.
