Invitation



Pentecost - Sunday 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.


Sunday - 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 146


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul!
I will praise the Lord as long as I live!
I will sing prais-es to my God as long as I ex-ist!
Do not trust in princ-es, or in man kind, who can-not de-liv-er!

Their life's breath de-parts,
they re-turn to the ground; on that day their plans die.
How bless-ed is the one whose help-er is the God of Ja-cob,
whose hope is in the Lord his God,

the one who made heav-en and earth,
the seas, and all that is in them,
who re-mains for-ev-er faith-ful,
and vin-di-cates the op-pressed,

The Lord gives food to the hun-gry.
The Lord re-leas-es the im-pris-oned.
The Lord gives sight to the blind.
The Lord lifts up all who are bent o-ver.

The Lord loves the god-ly.
The Lord pro-tects the res-i-dent for-eign-er;
he lifts up the fa-ther-less
and cares for the wid-ow,

But he op-pos-es the wick-ed.
The Lord rules for-ev-er, your God, O Zi-on,
through-out the gen-er-a-tions to come!
Praise the Lord for-ev-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.


Psalm 147


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise the Lord, for it is good
to sing prais-es to our God!
Yes, praise is pleas-ant and ap-pro-pri-ate!
The Lord re-builds Je-ru-sa-lem,

And gath-ers the ex-iles of Is-ra-el.
He heals the bro-ken-heart-ed,
and band-a-ges their wounds.
He counts the stars and names them all.

Our Lord is great and has awe-some pow-er;
there is no lim-it to his wis-dom.
The Lord lifts up the op-pressed,
but knocks the wick-ed to the ground.

Of-fer to the Lord a song of thanks!
Sing prais-es to our God to the ac-com-pani-ment of a harp!
He cov-ers the sky with clouds,
He pro-vides the earth with rain,

And causes grass to grow on the hill-side.
He gives food to the an-i-mals,
and to the young ra-vens when they chirp.
He is not en-a-mored with the strength of a horse,

Nor is he im-pressed by the war-ri-or's strong legs.
The Lord takes de-light in his faith-ful fol-low-ers,
and in those who wait for his loy-al love.
Ex-tol the Lord, O Je-ru-sa-lem! Praise your God, O Zi-on!

For he makes the bars of your gates strong.
He bless-es your chil-dren with-in you.
He brings peace to your ter-ri-to-ry.
He a-bun-dant-ly pro-vides for you the best grain.

He sends his com-mand through the earth;
swift-ly his or-der reach-es its des-ti-na-tion.
He sends the snow that is white like wool;
He spreads the frost that is white like ashes.

He throws his hail-stones like crumbs.
Who can with-stand the cold wind he sends?
He then or-ders it all to melt;
He breathes on it, and the wat-er flows.

He pro-claims his word to Ja-cob,
his stat-utes and reg-u-la-tions to Is-ra-el.
He has not done so with any oth-er na-tion;
they are not a-ware of his reg-u-la-tion. Praise the 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 Job 4:1-6, 12-21


Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered:


“If someone should attempt a word with you,
will you be impatient?
But who can refrain from speaking?


Look, you have instructed many;
you have strengthened feeble hands.


Your words have supported those
who stumbled,
and you have strengthened the knees
that gave way.


But now the same thing comes to you,
and you are discouraged;
it strikes you,
and you are terrified.


Is not your piety your confidence,
and your blameless ways your hope?


“Now a word was secretly brought to me,
and my ear caught a whisper of it.


In the troubling thoughts of the dreams in the night
when a deep sleep falls on men,


dread gripped me and trembling,
which made all my bones shake.


Then a breath of air passes by my face;
it makes the hair of my flesh stand up.


It stands still,
but I cannot recognize its appearance;
an image is before my eyes,
and I hear a murmuring voice:


“Is a mortal man righteous before God?
Or a man pure before his Creator?


If God puts no trust in his servants
and attributes folly to his angels,


how much more to those who live in houses of clay,
whose foundation is in the dust,
who are crushed like a moth?


They are destroyed between morning and evening;
they perish forever without anyone regarding it.


Is not their excess wealth taken away from them?
They die, yet without attaining wisdom.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my strong-hold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw wa-ter with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-mem-ber that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the prais-es of the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-hab-it-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

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 Revelation 4:1-11


After these things I looked, and there was a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said: “Come up here so that I can show you what must happen after these things.” Immediately I was in the Spirit, and a throne was standing in heaven with someone seated on it! And the one seated on it was like jasper and carnelian in appearance, and a rainbow looking like it was made of emerald encircled the throne. In a circle around the throne were twenty-four other thrones, and seated on those thrones were twenty-four elders. They were dressed in white clothing and had golden crowns on their heads. From the throne came out flashes of lightning and roaring and crashes of thunder. Seven flaming torches, which are the seven spirits of God, were burning in front of the throne and in front of the throne was something like a sea of glass, like crystal.

In the middle of the throne and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes in front and in back. The first living creature was like a lion, the second creature like an ox, the third creature had a face like a man’s, and the fourth creature looked like an eagle flying. Each one of the four living creatures had six wings and was full of eyes all around and inside. They never rest day or night, saying:
Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God, the All-Powerful,
Who was and who is, and who is still to come!”

And whenever the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to the one who sits on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders throw themselves to the ground before the one who sits on the throne and worship the one who lives forever and ever, and they offer their crowns before his throne, saying:


“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
since you created all things,
and because of your will they existed and were created!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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 for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.
