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 30


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will praise you, O Lord, for you lift-ed me up,
and did not al-low my en-e-mies to gloat o-ver me.
O Lord my God, I cried out to you and you healed me.
O Lord, you pulled me up from She-ol;

you res-cued me from a-mong those de-scend-ing into the grave.
Sing to the Lord, you faith-ful fol-low-ers of his;
give thanks to his ho-ly name.
For his an-ger lasts on-ly a brief mo-ment,

and his good fa-vor re-stores one's life.
One may ex-pe-ri-ence sor-row dur-ing the night,
but joy ar-rives in the morn-ing.
In my self-con-fi-dence I said, I will nev-er be shak-en.

O Lord, in your good fa-vor you made me se-cure.
Then you re-ject-ed me and I was ter-ri-fied.
To you, O Lord, I cried out;
I begged the Lord for mer-cy:

What prof-it is there in tak-ing my life,
in my de-scend-ing into the Pit?
Can the dust of the grave praise you?
Can it de-clare your loy-al-ty?

Hear, O Lord, and have mer-cy on me!
O Lord my God, de-liv-er me!
Then you turned my la-ment into danc-ing;
you re-moved my sack-cloth

You cov-ered me with joy.
So now my heart will sing to you
and I will not be si-lent;
O Lord my God, I will al-ways give thanks to you.

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 32


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



How bless-ed is the one
whose re-bel-lious acts are for-giv-en,
and whose sin is par-doned!
How bless-ed is the one whose wrong-do-ing the Lord does not pun-ish,

in whose spi-rit there is no de-ceit.
When I re-fused to con-fess my sin,
my whole bod-y wast-ed a-way,
while I groaned in pain all day long.

For day and night you tor-ment-ed me;
you tried to de-stroy me in the in-tense heat of sum-mer.
Then I con-fessed my sin;
I no long-er cov-ered up my wrong-do-ing.

I said, I will con-fess my re-bel-lious acts to the Lord.
And then you for-gave my sins.
So eve-ry one of your faith-ful fol-low-ers should pray to you
while there is a win-dow of op-por-tu-ni-ty.

Cer-tain-ly when the surg-ing waters rise,
They will not reach to them.
You are my hid-ing place;
you pro-tect me from all dis-tress.

You sur-round me with shouts of joy
from those cel-e-brat-ing de-liv-er-ance.
I will in-struct and teach you
a-bout how you should live.

I will ad-vise you as I look you in the eye.
Do not be like an un-in-tel-li-gent horse or mule,
which will not o-bey you
unless they are con-trolled by a bri-dle and bit.

An e-vil per-son suf-fers much pain,
but the Lord's faith-ful-ness o-ver-whelms the one who trusts in him.
Re-joice in the Lord and be hap-py, you who are god-ly!
Shout for joy, all you who are mor-al-ly up-right!

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 22:1-4, 21-23:7


Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered:


“Is it to God that a strong man is of benefit?
Is it to him that even a wise man is profitable?


Is it of any special benefit to the Almighty
that you should be righteous,
or is it any gain to him
that you make your ways blameless?


Is it because of your piety that he rebukes you
and goes to judgment with you?


“Reconcile yourself with God,
and be at peace with him;
in this way your prosperity will be good.


Accept instruction from his mouth
and store up his words in your heart.


If you return to the Almighty, you will be built up;
if you remove wicked behavior far from your tent,


and throw your gold in the dust –
your gold of Ophir
among the rocks in the ravines –


then the Almighty himself will be your gold,
and the choicest silver for you.


Surely then you will delight yourself in the Almighty,
and will lift up your face toward God.


You will pray to him and he will hear you,
and you will fulfill your vows to him.


Whatever you decide on a matter,
it will be established for you,
and light will shine on your ways.


When people are brought low and you say
‘Lift them up!’
then he will save the downcast;


he will deliver even someone who is not innocent,
who will escape through the cleanness of your hands.”

Then Job answered:


“Even today my complaint is still bitter;
his hand is heavy despite my groaning.


O that I knew where I might find him,
that I could come to his place of residence!


I would lay out my case before him
and fill my mouth with arguments.


I would know with what words he would answer me,
and understand what he would say to me.


Would he contend with me with great power?
No, he would only pay attention to me.


There an upright person
could present his case before him,
and I would be delivered forever from my judge.

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 13:26-43


Brothers, descendants of Abraham’s family, and those Gentiles among you who fear God, the message of this salvation has been sent to us. For the people who live in Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize him, and they fulfilled the sayings of the prophets that are read every Sabbath by condemning him. Though they found no basis for a death sentence, they asked Pilate to have him executed. When they had accomplished everything that was written about him, they took him down from the cross and placed him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead, and for many days he appeared to those who had accompanied him from Galilee to Jerusalem. These are now his witnesses to the people. And we proclaim to you the good news about the promise to our ancestors, that this promise God has fulfilled to us, their children, by raising Jesus, as also it is written in the second psalm, ‘You are my Son; today I have fathered you.’ But regarding the fact that he has raised Jesus from the dead, never again to be in a state of decay, God has spoken in this way: ‘I will give you the holy and trustworthy promises made to David.’ Therefore he also says in another psalm, ‘You will not permit your Holy One to experience decay.’ For David, after he had served God’s purpose in his own generation, died, was buried with his ancestors, and experienced decay, but the one whom God raised up did not experience decay. Therefore let it be known to you, brothers, that through this one forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you, and by this one everyone who believes is justified from everything from which the law of Moses could not justify you. Watch out, then, that what is spoken about by the prophets does not happen to you:

Look, you scoffers; be amazed and perish!

For I am doing a work in your days,

a work you would never believe, even if someone tells you.’”

As Paul and Barnabas were going out, the people were urging them to speak about these things on the next Sabbath. When the meeting of the synagogue had broken up, many of the Jews and God-fearing proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who were speaking with them and were persuading them to continue in the grace of God.

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.

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.
