Pentecost - Tuesday 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.


Tuesday - 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 78:40-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All    



How of-ten they re-belled a-gainst him in the wil-der-ness,
and in-sul-ted him in the waste-land!
They a-gain chal-lenged God,
and of-fend-ed the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

They did not re-mem-ber what he had done,
how he de-liv-ered them from the en-e-my,
when he per-formed his awe-some deeds in E-gypt,
and his acts of judg-ment in the re-gion of Zo-an.

He turned their riv-ers into blood,
and they could not drink from their streams.
He sent swarms of bit-ing in-sects a-gainst them,
as well as frogs that o-ver-ran their land.

He gave their crops to the grass-hop-per,
the fruit of their la-bor to the lo-cust.
He de-stroyed their vines with hail,
and their syc-a-more fig trees with driv-ing rain.

He rained hail down on their cat-tle,
and hurled light-ning bolts down on their live-stock.
His rag-ing an-ger lashed out a-gainst them,
He sent fu-ry, rage, and trou-ble

as mes-sen-gers who bring dis-as-ter.
He sent his an-ger in full force;
he did not spare them from death;
he hand-ed their lives o-ver to de-struc-tion.

He struck down all the first-born in E-gypt,
the first fruits of their re-pro-duc-tive pow-er in the tents of Ham.
Yet he brought out his peo-ple like sheep;
he led them through the wil-der-ness like a flock.

He guid-ed them safe-ly a-long,
and they were not a-fraid;
but the sea cov-ered their en-e-my.
He brought them to the bor-der of his ho-ly land,

to this moun-tain-ous land which his right hand ac-quired.
He drove the na-tions out from be-fore them;
he as-signed them their trib-al al-lot-ments
and al-lowed the tribes of Is-ra-el to set-tle down.

Yet they chal-lenged and de-fied God Most High,
and did not o-bey his com-mands.
They were un-faith-ful
and acted as treach-er-ous-ly as their an-ces-tors;

they were as un-re-li-a-ble as a bro-ken bow.
They made him an-gry with their pa-gan shrines,
and made him jeal-ous with their i-dols.
God heard and was an-gry;

he com-plete-ly re-ject-ed Is-ra-el.
He a-ban-doned the sanc-tu-ar-y at Shi-loh,
the tent where he lived a-mong men.
He al-lowed the sym-bol of his strong pres-ence to be cap-tured;

he gave the sym-bol of his splen-dor into the hand of the en-e-my.
He de-liv-ered his peo-ple o-ver to the sword,
and was an-gry with his cho-sen na-tion.
Fire con-sumed their young men,

and their vir-gins re-mained un-mar-ried.
Their priests fell by the sword,
but their wid-ows did not weep.
But then the Lord a-woke from his sleep;

he was like a war-ri-or in a drunk-en rage.
He drove his en-e-mies back;
he made them a per-ma-nent tar-get for in-sults.
He re-ject-ed the tent of Jo-seph;

he did not choose the tribe of Eph-ra-im.
He chose the tribe of Ju-dah,
and Mount Zi-on, which he loves.
He made his sanc-tu-ar-y as en-dur-ing as the heav-ens a-bove;

as se-cure as the earth,
which he es-tab-lished per-ma-nent-ly.
He chose Da-vid, his serv-ant,
and took him from the sheep-fold.

He took him a-way
from fol-low-ing the moth-er sheep,
and made him the shep-herd
of Ja-cob, his peo-ple,

and of Is-ra-el,
of God's cho-sen na-tion.
Da-vid cared for them with pure mo-tives;
he led them with great skill.

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 Judges 7:1-18



Jerub-Baal (that is, Gideon) and his men got up the next morning and camped near the spring of Harod. The Midianites were camped north of them near the hill of Moreh in the valley. The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men for me to hand Midian over to you. Israel might brag, ‘Our own strength has delivered us.’ Now, announce to the men, ‘Whoever is shaking with fear may turn around and leave Mount Gilead.’” Twenty-two thousand men went home; ten thousand remained. The Lord spoke to Gideon again, “There are still too many men. Bring them down to the water and I will thin the ranks some more. When I say, ‘This one should go with you,’ pick him to go; when I say, ‘This one should not go with you,’ do not take him.” So he brought the men down to the water. Then the Lord said to Gideon, “Separate those who lap the water as a dog laps from those who kneel to drink.” Three hundred men lapped with their hands to their mouths; the rest of the men kneeled to drink water. The Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men who lapped I will deliver the whole army and I will hand Midian over to you. The rest of the men should go home.” The men who were chosen took supplies and their trumpets. Gideon sent all the men of Israel back to their homes; he kept only three hundred men. Now the Midianites were camped down below in the valley.
That night the Lord said to Gideon, “Get up! Attack the camp, for I am handing it over to you. But if you are afraid to attack, go down to the camp with Purah your servant and listen to what they are saying. Then you will be brave and attack the camp.” So he went down with Purah his servant to where the sentries were guarding the camp. Now the Midianites, Amalekites, and the people from the east covered the valley like a swarm of locusts. Their camels could not be counted; they were as innumerable as the sand on the seashore. When Gideon arrived, he heard a man telling another man about a dream he had. The man said, “Look! I had a dream. I saw a stale cake of barley bread rolling into the Midianite camp. It hit a tent so hard it knocked it over and turned it upside down. The tent just collapsed.” The other man said, “Without a doubt this symbolizes the sword of Gideon son of Joash, the Israelite. God is handing Midian and all the army over to him.”
When Gideon heard the report of the dream and its interpretation, he praised God. Then he went back to the Israelite camp and said, “Get up, for the Lord is handing the Midianite army over to you!” He divided the three hundred men into three units. He gave them all trumpets and empty jars with torches inside them. He said to them, “Watch me and do as I do. Watch closely! I am going to the edge of the camp. Do as I do! When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, you also blow your trumpets all around the camp. Then say, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon!’”
Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Tuesday - 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.


A reading from Acts 3:1-11



Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time for prayer, at three o’clock in the afternoon. And a man lame from birth was being carried up, who was placed at the temple gate called “the Beautiful Gate” every day so he could beg for money from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple courts, he asked them for money. Peter looked directly at him (as did John) and said, “Look at us!” So the lame man paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, stand up and walk!” Then Peter took hold of him by the right hand and raised him up, and at once the man’s feet and ankles were made strong. He jumped up, stood and began walking around, and he entered the temple courts with them, walking and leaping and praising God. All the people saw him walking and praising God, and they recognized him as the man who used to sit and ask for donations at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with astonishment and amazement at what had happened to him.
While the man was hanging on to Peter and John, all the people, completely astounded, ran together to them in the covered walkway called Solomon’s Portico.
Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Tuesday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All    





Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-y sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from the hands of our en-e-mies,
Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In the ten-der com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and the shad-ow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.

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,

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.

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;

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.




Collect of the Day


Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Amen.

A Collect for Peace

O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of 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.
