Invitation



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 - 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 61


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O God, hear my cry for help!
Pay at-ten-tion to my prayer!
From the most re-mote place on earth
I call out to you in my de-spair.

Lead me up to a rock-y sum-mit
where I can be safe in-deed.
You are my shel-ter,
a strong tow-er that pro-tects me from the en-e-my.

I will be a per-ma-nent guest in your home;
I will find shel-ter in the pro-tec-tion of your wings.
For you, O God, hear my vow;
you grant me the re-ward that be-longs to your loy-al fol-low-ers.

Give the king long life!
Make his life-time span sev-er-al gen-er-a-tions!
May he reign for-ev-er be-fore God!
De-cree that your loy-al love and faith-ful-ness should pro-tect him.

Then I will sing prais-es to your name con-tin-ual-ly,
as I ful-fill my vows day af-ter day.
For you, O God, hear my vow;
you grant me the re-ward that be-longs to your loy-al fol-low-ers.

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 62


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



For God a-lone I pa-tient-ly wait;
he is the one who de-liv-ers me.
He a-lone is my pro-tec-tor and de-liv-er.
He is my ref-uge; I will not be up-end-ed.

How long will you threat-en a man?
All of you are mur-der-ers,
as dan-ger-ous as a lean-ing wall
or an un-sta-ble fence.

They spend all their time
plan-ning how to bring him down.
They love to use de-ceit;
they pro-nounce bles-sings with their mouths.

But in-ward-ly they ut-ter curs-es.
Pa-tient-ly wait for God a-lone, my soul!
For he is the one who gives me hope.
He a-lone is my pro-tec-tor and de-liv-er-er.

He is my ref-uge;
I will not be shak-en.
God de-liv-ers me and ex-alts me;
God is my strong pro-tec-tor and my shel-ter.

Trust in him at all times, you peo-ple!
Pour out your hearts be-fore him!
God is our shel-ter!
Men are noth-ing but a mere breath;

Hu-man be-ings are un-re-li-a-ble.
When they are weighed in the scales,
all of them to-geth-er are light-er than air.
Do not trust in what you can gain by op-pres-sion!

Do not put false con-fi-dence
in what you can gain by rob-ber-y!
If wealth in-creas-es,
do not be-come at-tached to it!

God has de-clared one prin-ci-ple;
two prin-ci-ples I have heard:
Our God is strong,
and you, O Lord, dem-on-strate loy-al love.

For you re-pay men for what they do.
Trust in God at all times, you peo-ple!
Pour out your hearts be-fore him,
For our God is our shel-ter!

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 41:1-11



(40:25) “Can you pull in Leviathan with a hook,
and tie down its tongue with a rope?


Can you put a cord through its nose,
or pierce its jaw with a hook?


Will it make numerous supplications to you,
will it speak to you with tender words?


Will it make a pact with you,
so you could take it as your slave for life?


Can you play with it, like a bird,
or tie it on a leash for your girls?


Will partners bargain for it?
Will they divide it up among the merchants?


Can you fill its hide with harpoons
or its head with fishing spears?


If you lay your hand on it,
you will remember the fight.
Do not do it again!


(41:1) See, his expectation is wrong,
he is laid low even at the sight of it.


Is it not fierce when it is awakened?
Who is he, then, who can stand before it?


(Who has confronted me that I should repay?
Everything under heaven belongs to me!)

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 16:6-15


They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia. When they came to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to do this, so they passed through Mysia and went down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul during the night: A Macedonian man was standing there urging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!” After Paul saw the vision, we attempted immediately to go over to Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.

We put out to sea from Troas and sailed a straight course to Samothrace, the next day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of that district of Macedonia, a Roman colony. We stayed in this city for some days. On the Sabbath day we went outside the city gate to the side of the river, where we thought there would be a place of prayer, and we sat down and began to speak to the women who had assembled there. A woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, a God-fearing woman, listened to us. The Lord opened her heart to respond to what Paul was saying. After she and her household were baptized, she urged us, “If you consider me to be a believer in the Lord, come and stay in my house.” And she persuaded us.

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.


Prayers



Tuesday 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.

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.




Tuesday - 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, 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.




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.

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,

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;

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