Invitation



Pentecost - Thursday 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.


Thursday - 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 71


All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass
In you, O Lord, I have tak-en shel-ter!
Nev-er let me be hu-mil-i-at-ed!
Vin-di-cate me by res-cu-ing me!
List-en to me! De-liv-er me!

Be my pro-tec-tor and ref-uge,
a strong-hold where I can be safe!
For you are my high ridge
and my strong-hold for-ev-er.

My God, res-cue me
from the pow-er of the wick-ed,
from the hand of the cru-el op-pres-sor!
For you are my hope; O Sov-er-eign Lord,

I have trust-ed in you since I was young.
I have leaned on you since birth;
you pulled me from my moth-er's womb.
I praise you con-tin-ual-ly.

Many are ap-palled when they see me,
but you are my se-cure shel-ter.
I praise you con-stant-ly
and speak of your splen-dor all day long.

Do not re-ject me in my old age!
When all my strength has failed,
do not a-ban-don me!
For my en-e-mies talk a-bout me;

Those wait-ing for a chance to kill me plot my de-mise.
They say, God has a-ban-doned him.
Run and seize him,
for there is no one who will res-cue him!

O God, do not re-main far a-way from me!
My God, hur-ry and help me!
May my ac-cus-ers be
hu-mil-i-at-ed and de-feat-ed!

May those who want to harm me
be cov-ered with scorn and dis-grace!
As for me, I will wait con-tin-ual-ly,
and will con-tin-ue to praise you.

I will tell a-bout your jus-tice,
and all day long pro-claim your sal-va-tion,
though I can-not fath-om its full ex-tent.
I will come and tell a-bout your deeds

The might-y acts of the Sov-er-eign Lord.
I will pro-claim your jus-tice yours a-lone.
O God, you have taught me since I was young,
and I am still de-clar-ing your a-maz-ing deeds.

E-ven when I am old and gray,
O God. Do not a-ban-don me
un-til I tell the next gen-er-a-tion
a-bout your strength and pow-er.

Your jus-tice, O God,
ex-tends to the skies a-bove;
you have done great things. O God,
who can com-pare to you?

Though you have al-lowed me to ex-pe-ri-ence
much trou-ble and dis-tress,
re-vive me once a-gain!
Bring me up once a-gain

From the depths of the earth!
Raise me to a po-si-tion of great hon-or!
Turn and com-fort me, O God!
I will ex-press my thanks to you

With a stringed in-stru-ment,
prais-ing your faith-ful-ness, O my God!
I will sing prais-es to you
ac-com-pa-nied by a harp,

O Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el!
My lips will shout for joy!
Yes, I will sing your praise!
I will praise you when you res-cue me!

All day long my tongue
will al-so tell a-bout your jus-tice,
for those who want to harm me
will be em-bar-rassed and a-shamed.

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 28:1-28



“Surely there is a mine for silver,
and a place where gold is refined.


Iron is taken from the ground,
and rock is poured out as copper.


Man puts an end to the darkness;
he searches the farthest recesses
for the ore in the deepest darkness.


Far from where people live he sinks a shaft,
in places travelers have long forgotten,
far from other people he dangles and sways.


The earth, from which food comes,
is overturned below as though by fire;


a place whose stones are sapphires
and which contains dust of gold;


a hidden path no bird of prey knows –
no falcon’s eye has spotted it.


Proud beasts have not set foot on it,
and no lion has passed along it.


On the flinty rock man has set to work with his hand;
he has overturned mountains at their bases.


He has cut out channels through the rocks;
his eyes have spotted every precious thing.


He has searched the sources of the rivers
and what was hidden he has brought into the light.


“But wisdom – where can it be found?
Where is the place of understanding?


Mankind does not know its place;
it cannot be found in the land of the living.


The deep says, ‘It is not with me.’
And the sea says, ‘It is not with me.’


Fine gold cannot be given in exchange for it,
nor can its price be weighed out in silver.


It cannot be measured out for purchase with the gold of Ophir,
with precious onyx or sapphires.


Neither gold nor crystal can be compared with it,
nor can a vase of gold match its worth.


Of coral and jasper no mention will be made;
the price of wisdom is more than pearls.


The topaz of Cush cannot be compared with it;
it cannot be purchased with pure gold.


“But wisdom – where does it come from?
Where is the place of understanding?


For it has been hidden
from the eyes of every living creature,
and from the birds of the sky it has been concealed.


Destruction and Death say,
‘With our ears we have heard a rumor about where it can be found.’


God understands the way to it,
and he alone knows its place.


For he looks to the ends of the earth
and observes everything under the heavens.


When he made the force of the wind
and measured the waters with a gauge,


when he imposed a limit for the rain,
and a path for the thunderstorm,


then he looked at wisdom and assessed its value;
he established it and examined it closely.


And he said to mankind,
‘The fear of the Lord – that is wisdom,
and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

praise him and high-ly ex-alt him for ev-er.


A reading from Acts 16:25-40


About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the rest of the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly a great earthquake occurred, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken. Immediately all the doors flew open, and the bonds of all the prisoners came loose. When the jailer woke up and saw the doors of the prison standing open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, because he assumed the prisoners had escaped. But Paul called out loudly, “Do not harm yourself, for we are all here!” Calling for lights, the jailer rushed in and fell down trembling at the feet of Paul and Silas. Then he brought them outside and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him, along with all those who were in his house. At that hour of the night he took them and washed their wounds; then he and all his family were baptized right away. The jailer brought them into his house and set food before them, and he rejoiced greatly that he had come to believe in God, together with his entire household. At daybreak the magistrates sent their police officers, saying, “Release those men.” The jailer reported these words to Paul, saying, “The magistrates have sent orders to release you. So come out now and go in peace.” But Paul said to the police officers, “They had us beaten in public without a proper trial – even though we are Roman citizens – and they threw us in prison. And now they want to send us away secretly? Absolutely not! They themselves must come and escort us out!” The police officers reported these words to the magistrates. They were frightened when they heard Paul and Silas were Roman citizens and came and apologized to them. After they brought them out, they asked them repeatedly to leave the city. When they came out of the prison, they entered Lydia’s house, and when they saw the brothers, they encouraged them and then departed.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

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



Thursday 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.
