Invitation



Pentecost - Wednesday 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.


Wednesday - 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 38


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, do not con-tin-ue to re-buke me in your an-ger!
Do not con-tin-ue to pun-ish me in your rag-ing fu-ry!
For your ar-rows pierce me,
and your hand press-es me down.

My whole bod-y is sick
be-cause of your judg-ment;
I am de-prived of health be-cause of my sin.
For my sins o-ver-whelm me;

like a heav-y load,
they are too much for me to bear.
My wounds are in-fected and start-ing to smell,
be-cause of my fool-ish sins.

I am dazed and com-plete-ly hu-mil-i-at-ed;
all day long I walk a-round mourn-ing.
For I am o-ver-come with shame
and my whole bod-y is sick.

I am numb with pain
and se-vere-ly bat-tered;
I groan loud-ly
be-cause of the anx-i-e-ty I feel.

O Lord, you un-der-stand my heart's de-sire;
my groan-ing is not hid-den from you.
My heart beats so quick-ly;
my strength leaves me; I can hard-ly see.

Be-cause of my con-di-tion,
e-ven my friends and ac-quain-tances
keep their dis-tance;
my neigh-bors stand far a-way.

Those who seek my life try to en-trap me;
those who want to harm me speak de-struc-tive words;
all day long they say de-ceit-ful things.
But I am like a deaf man I hear noth-ing;

I am like a mute who can-not speak.
I am like a man who can-not hear
and is in-ca-pa-ble of ar-gu-ing his de-fense.
Yet I wait for you, O Lord!

You will re-spond, O Lord, my God!
I have prayed for de-liv-er-ance,
be-cause oth-er-wise they will gloat o-ver me;
when my foot slips they will ar-ro-gant-ly taunt me.

For I am a-bout to stum-ble,
and I am in con-stant pain.
Yes, I con-fess my wrong-do-ing,
and I am con-cerned a-bout my sins.

But those who are my en-e-mies for no rea-son are nu-mer-ous;
those who hate me with-out cause out-num-ber me.
They re-pay me e-vil for the good I have done;
though I have tried to do good to them,

They hurl ac-cu-sa-tions at me.
Do not a-ban-don me, O Lord!
My God, do not re-main far a-way from me!
Hur-ry and help me, O Lord, my de-liv-er-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 12:1; 14:1-22


Then Job answered:


“Man, born of woman,
lives but a few days, and they are full of trouble.


He grows up like a flower and then withers away;
he flees like a shadow, and does not remain.


Do you fix your eye on such a one?
And do you bring me before you for judgment?


Who can make a clean thing come from an unclean?
No one!


Since man’s days are determined,
the number of his months is under your control;
you have set his limit and he cannot pass it.


Look away from him and let him desist,
until he fulfills his time like a hired man.


“But there is hope for a tree:
If it is cut down, it will sprout again,
and its new shoots will not fail.


Although its roots may grow old in the ground
and its stump begins to die in the soil,


at the scent of water it will flourish
and put forth shoots like a new plant.


But man dies and is powerless;
he expires – and where is he?


As water disappears from the sea,
or a river drains away and dries up,


so man lies down and does not rise;
until the heavens are no more,
they will not awake
nor arise from their sleep.


“O that you would hide me in Sheol,
and conceal me till your anger has passed!
O that you would set me a time
and then remember me!


If a man dies, will he live again?
All the days of my hard service I will wait
until my release comes.


You will call and I – I will answer you;
you will long for the creature you have made.


“Surely now you count my steps;
then you would not mark my sin.


My offenses would be sealed up in a bag;
you would cover over my sin.


But as a mountain falls away and crumbles,
and as a rock will be removed from its place,


as water wears away stones,
and torrents wash away the soil,
so you destroy man’s hope.


You overpower him once for all,
and he departs;
you change his appearance
and send him away.


If his sons are honored,
he does not know it;
if they are brought low,
he does not see it.


His flesh only has pain for him,
and he mourns for himself.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - 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.


A reading from Acts 12:18-25


At daybreak there was great consternation among the soldiers over what had become of Peter. When Herod had searched for him and did not find him, he questioned the guards and commanded that they be led away to execution. Then Herod went down from Judea to Caesarea and stayed there.

Now Herod was having an angry quarrel with the people of Tyre and Sidon. So they joined together and presented themselves before him. And after convincing Blastus, the king’s personal assistant, to help them, they asked for peace, because their country’s food supply was provided by the king’s country. On a day determined in advance, Herod put on his royal robes, sat down on the judgment seat, and made a speech to them. But the crowd began to shout, “The voice of a god, and not of a man!” Immediately an angel of the Lord struck Herod down because he did not give the glory to God, and he was eaten by worms and died. But the word of God kept on increasing and multiplying.

So Barnabas and Saul returned to Jerusalem when they had completed their mission, bringing along with them John Mark.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - 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.


Prayers



Wednesday 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.




Wednesday - Our Father

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.

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.
