Invitation



Pentecost - Friday 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.


Friday - 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 40


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I re-lied com-plete-ly on the Lord,
and he turned toward me and heard my cry for help.
He lift-ed me out of the wa-ter-y pit,
out of the slim-y mud.

He placed my feet on a rock
and gave me se-cure foot-ing.
He gave me rea-son to sing a new song, prais-ing our God.
May man-y see what God has done,

So that they might swear al-le-giance to him and trust in the Lord!
How bless-ed is the one who trusts in the Lord
and does not seek help from the proud or from li-ars!
O Lord, my God, you have ac-com-plished man-y things;

you have done a-maz-ing things
and car-ried out your pur-pos-es for us.
No one can thwart you!
I want to de-clare them and talk a-bout them,

but they are too nu-mer-ous to re-count!
Re-ceiv-ing sac-ri-fic-es and of-fer-ings are not your pri-ma-ry con-cern.
You make that quite clear to me!
You do not ask for burnt sac-ri-fic-es and sin of-fer-ings.

Then I say, Look! I come!
What is writ-ten in the scroll per-tains to me.
I want to do what pleas-es you, my God.
Your law dom-i-nates my thoughts.

I have told the great as-sem-bly a-bout your jus-tice.
Look! I spare no words! O Lord, you know this is true.
I have not failed to tell a-bout your jus-tice;
I spoke a-bout your re-li-a-bil-i-ty and de-liv-er-ance;

I have not ne-glect-ed to tell the great as-sem-bly
a-bout your loy-al love and faith-ful-ness.
O Lord, you do not with-hold your com-pas-sion from me.
May your loy-al love and faith-ful-ness con-tin-ual-ly pro-tect me!

For in-nu-mer-a-ble dan-gers sur-round me.
My sins o-ver-take me so I am un-a-ble to see;
they out-num-ber the hairs of my head
so my strength is fail-ing me.

Please be will-ing, O Lord, to res-cue me!
O Lord, hur-ry and help me!
May those who are try-ing to snatch a-way my life
be to-tal-ly em-bar-rassed and a-shamed!

May those who want to harm me
be turned back and a-shamed!
May those who say to me, A-ha! A-ha!
be hu-mil-i-at-ed and dis-graced!

May all those who seek you
be hap-py and re-joice in you!
May those who love to ex-pe-ri-ence your de-liv-er-ance
say con-tin-ual-ly, May the Lord be praised!

I am op-pressed and need-y!
May the Lord pay at-ten-tion to me!
You are my help-er and my de-liv-er-er!
O my God, do not de-lay!

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 54


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O God, de-liv-er me by your name!
Vin-di-cate me by your pow-er!
O God, list-en to my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to what I say!

For for-eign-ers at-tack me;
ruth-less men, who do not re-spect God, seek my life.
Look, God is my de-liv-er-er!
The Lord is a-mong those who sup-port me.

May those who wait to am-bush me
be re-paid for their e-vil!
As a dem-on-stra-tion of your faith-ful-ness,
con-found and de-stroy them!

With a free-will of-fer-ing I will sac-ri-fice to you!
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good!
Sure-ly he res-cues me from all trou-ble,
and I tri-umph o-ver my en-e-mies.

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 31:24-40



“If I have put my confidence in gold
or said to pure gold,
‘You are my security!’


if I have rejoiced because of the extent of my wealth,
or because of the great wealth my hand had gained,


if I looked at the sun when it was shining,
and the moon advancing as a precious thing,


so that my heart was secretly enticed,
and my hand threw them a kiss from my mouth,


then this also would be iniquity to be judged,
for I would have been false to God above.


If I have rejoiced over the misfortune of my enemy
or exulted because calamity found him –


I have not even permitted my mouth to sin
by asking for his life through a curse –


if the members of my household have never said,
‘If only there were someone
who has not been satisfied from Job’s meat!’ –


But no stranger had to spend the night outside,
for I opened my doors to the traveler –


if I have covered my transgressions as men do,
by hiding iniquity in my heart,


because I was terrified of the great multitude,
and the contempt of families terrified me,
so that I remained silent
and would not go outdoors –


“If only I had someone to hear me!
Here is my signature –
let the Almighty answer me!
If only I had an indictment
that my accuser had written.


Surely I would wear it proudly on my shoulder,
I would bind it on me like a crown;


I would give him an accounting of my steps;
like a prince I would approach him.


“If my land cried out against me
and all its furrows wept together,


if I have eaten its produce without paying,
or caused the death of its owners,


then let thorns sprout up in place of wheat,
and in place of barley, weeds!”

The words of Job are ended.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glo-ry of your peo-ple Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 15:12-21


The whole group kept quiet and listened to Barnabas and Paul while they explained all the miraculous signs and wonders God had done among the Gentiles through them. After they stopped speaking, James replied, “Brothers, listen to me. Simeon has explained how God first concerned himself to select from among the Gentiles a people for his name. The words of the prophets agree with this, as it is written,

After this I will return,

and I will rebuild the fallen tent of David;

I will rebuild its ruins and restore it,

so that the rest of humanity may seek the Lord,

namely, all the Gentiles I have called to be my own, says the Lord, who makes these things known from long ago.

“Therefore I conclude that we should not cause extra difficulty for those among the Gentiles who are turning to God, but that we should write them a letter telling them to abstain from things defiled by idols and from sexual immorality and from what has been strangled and from blood. For Moses has had those who proclaim him in every town from ancient times, because he is read aloud in the synagogues every Sabbath.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - 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.


Prayers



Friday 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.




Friday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




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.




Friday - Morning Suffrages B


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Save your peo-ple, Lord,
and bless your in-her-it-ance;
Gov-ern and guide them, Lord
and up-hold them, now and al-ways.

Day by day we bless you;
We praise your name for ev-er.
Lord, keep us from all sin to-day;
Have mer-cy up-on us, Lord, have mer-cy.

Lord, show us your love and mer-cy;
For we put our trust in you.
In you, Lord, is our hope;
And we shall nev-er hope in vain.




Collects of the Day


O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Fridays

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through 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.





General Thanksgiving


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Al-might-y God, Fa-ther of all mer-cies,
we your un-wor-thy serv-ants give you hum-ble thanks
for all your good-ness and lov-ing kind-ness
to us and to all whom you have made.

We bless you for our cre-a-tion, pres-er-va-tion,
and all the bles-sings of this life;
but a-bove all for your im-meas-ur-a-ble love
in the re-demp-tion of the world by our Lord Je-sus Christ;

for the means of grace, and for the hope of glo-ry.
And, we pray, give us such an a-ware-ness of your mer-cy,
that with tru-ly thank-ful hearts
we may show forth your praise,

not on-ly with our lips, but in our lives,
by giv-ing up our selves to your ser-vice,
and by walk-ing be-fore you
in ho-li-ness and right-eous-ness all our days;

through Je-sus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
be ho-nor and glo-ry
through-out all the ag-es. A-men.
