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 66


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Shout out praise to God, all the earth!
Sing prais-es a-bout the maj-es-ty of his rep-u-ta-tion!
Give him the hon-or he de-serves!
Say to God: How awe-some are your deeds!

Be-cause of your great pow-er
your en-e-mies cow-er in fear be-fore you.
All the earth wor-ships you and sings prais-es to you!
They sing prais-es to your name!

Come and wit-ness God's ex-ploits!
His acts on be-half of peo-ple are awe-some!
He turned the sea into dry land;
they passed through the riv-er on foot.

Let us re-joice in him there!
He rules by his pow-er for-ev-er;
he watch-es the na-tions.
Stub-born re-bels should not ex-alt them-selves.

Praise our God, you na-tions!
Loud-ly pro-claim his praise!
He pre-serves our lives
and does not al-low our feet to slip.

For you, O God, test-ed us;
you puri-fied us like re-fined sil-ver.
You led us into a trap;
you caused us to suf-fer.

You al-lowed men to ride o-ver our heads;
we passed through fire and wat-er,
but you brought us out
into a wide o-pen place.

I will en-ter your tem-ple with burnt sac-ri-fic-es;
I will ful-fill the vows I made to you,
which my lips ut-tered and my mouth spoke
when I was in trou-ble.

I will of-fer up to you fat-tened an-i-mals as burnt sac-ri-fic-es,
a-long with the smell of sac-ri-fi-cial rams.
I will of-fer cat-tle and goats.
Come! List-en, all you who are loy-al to God!

I will de-clare what he has done for me.
I cried out to him for help
and praised him with my tongue.
If I had har-bored sin in my heart,

the Lord would not have list-ened.
How-ev-er, God heard; he list-ened to my prayer.
God de-serves praise,
for he did not re-ject my prayer or a-ban-don his love for me!

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 67


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



May God show us his fa-vor and bless us!
May he smile up-on us!
Then those liv-ing on earth will know what you are like;
all na-tions will know how you de-liv-er your peo-ple.

Let the na-tions thank you, O God!
Let all the na-tions thank you!
Let for-eign-ers re-joice and cel-e-brate!
For you ex-e-cute jus-tice a-mong the na-tions,

and gov-ern the peo-ple liv-ing on earth.
Let the na-tions thank you, O God!
Let all the na-tions thank you!
For the earth yields its crops.

May God bless us!
May God, our God, bless us!
Then all the ends of the earth
will give him the hon-or he de-serves.

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 Hosea 2:2-14



Plead earnestly with your mother
(for she is not my wife, and I am not her husband),
so that she might put an end to her adulterous lifestyle,
and turn away from her sexually immoral behavior.


Otherwise, I will strip her naked,
and expose her like she was when she was born.
I will turn her land into a wilderness
and make her country a parched land,
so that I might kill her with thirst.


I will have no pity on her children,
because they are children conceived in adultery.


For their mother has committed adultery;
she who conceived them has acted shamefully.
For she said, “I will seek out my lovers;
they are the ones who give me my bread and my water,
my wool, my flax, my olive oil, and my wine.


Therefore, I will soon fence her in with thorns;
I will wall her in so that she cannot find her way.


Then she will pursue her lovers, but she will not catch them;
she will seek them, but she will not find them.
Then she will say,
“I will go back to my husband,
because I was better off then than I am now.”


Yet until now she has refused to acknowledge that I was the one
who gave her the grain, the new wine, and the olive oil;
and that it was I who lavished on her the silver and gold –
which they used in worshiping Baal!


Therefore, I will take back my grain during the harvest time
and my new wine when it ripens;
I will take away my wool and my flax
which I had provided in order to clothe her.


Soon I will expose her lewd nakedness in front of her lovers,
and no one will be able to rescue her from me!


I will put an end to all her celebration:
her annual religious festivals,
monthly new moon celebrations,
and weekly Sabbath festivities –
all her appointed festivals.


I will destroy her vines and fig trees,
about which she said, “These are my wages for prostitution
that my lovers gave to me!”
I will turn her cultivated vines and fig trees into an uncultivated thicket,
so that wild animals will devour them.


“I will punish her for the festival days
when she burned incense to the Baal idols;
she adorned herself with earrings and jewelry,
and went after her lovers,
but she forgot me!” says the Lord.


However, in the future I will allure her;
I will lead her back into the wilderness,
and speak tenderly to her.

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 James 3:1-13


Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters, because you know that we will be judged more strictly. For we all stumble in many ways. If someone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect individual, able to control the entire body as well. And if we put bits into the mouths of horses to get them to obey us, then we guide their entire bodies. Look at ships too: Though they are so large and driven by harsh winds, they are steered by a tiny rudder wherever the pilot’s inclination directs. So too the tongue is a small part of the body, yet it has great pretensions. Think how small a flame sets a huge forest ablaze. And the tongue is a fire! The tongue represents the world of wrongdoing among the parts of our bodies. It pollutes the entire body and sets fire to the course of human existence – and is set on fire by hell.

For every kind of animal, bird, reptile, and sea creature is subdued and has been subdued by humankind. But no human being can subdue the tongue; it is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse people made in God’s image. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. These things should not be so, my brothers and sisters. A spring does not pour out fresh water and bitter water from the same opening, does it? Can a fig tree produce olives, my brothers and sisters, or a vine produce figs? Neither can a salt water spring produce fresh water.

Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct he should show his works done in the gentleness that wisdom brings.

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 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.

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

Al-might-y God, Fa-ther of all mer-cies,

for all your good-ness and lov-ing kind-ness
to us and to all whom you have made.
