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 - 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 119:49-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Re-mem-ber your word to your serv-ant,
for you have giv-en me hope.
For Sol-o-mon. O God, grant the king
the a-bil-i-ty to make just de-ci-sions!

Grant the king’s son
the a-bil-i-ty to make fair de-ci-sions!
Then he will judge your peo-ple fair-ly,
and your op-pressed ones eq-ui-ta-bly.

The moun-tains will bring news of peace to the peo-ple,
and the hills will an-nounce jus-tice.
He will de-fend the op-pressed a-mong the peo-ple;
he will de-liv-er the chil-dren of the poor and crush the op-pres-sor.

Peo-ple will fear you as long as the sun and moon re-main in the sky,
for gen-er-a-tion af-ter gen-er-a-tion.
He will de-scend like rain on the mown grass,
like show-ers that drench the earth.

Dur-ing his days the god-ly will flour-ish;
peace will pre-vail as long as the moon re-mains in the sky.
May he rule from sea to sea,
and from the Eu-phra-tes Riv-er to the ends of the earth!

Be-fore him the coast-lands will bow down,
and his en-e-mies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tar-shish and the coast-lands will of-fer gifts;
the kings of She-bah and Se-bah will bring trib-ute.

All kings will bow down to him;
all na-tions will serve him.
For he will res-cue the need-y when they cry out for help,
and the op-pressed who have no de-fend-er.

He will take pit-y on the poor and need-y;
the lives of the need-y he will save.
From harm and vio-lence he will de-fend them;
he will val-ue their lives.

May he live! May they of-fer him gold from She-bah!
May they con-tin-ual-ly pray for him!
May they pro-nounce bles-sings on him all day long!
May there be an a-bun-dance of grain in the earth;

On the tops of the moun-tains may it sway!
May its fruit trees flour-ish like the for-ests of Leb-a-non!
May its crops be as a-bun-dant as the grass of the earth!
May his fame and glo-ry en-dure!

May his dy-nas-ty last as long as the sun re-mains in the sky!
May they use his name when they com-pose their bles-sings!
May all na-tions con-sid-er him to be fa-vored by God!
The Lord God, the God of Is-ra-el, de-serves praise!

He a-lone ac-com-plish-es a-maz-ing things!
His glo-ri-ous name de-serves praise for-ev-er-more!
May his ma-jes-tic splen-dor fill the whole earth!
We a-gree! We a-gree! 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.


Readings



A reading from Job 30:1-2, 16-31



“But now they mock me, those who are younger than I,
whose fathers I disdained too much
to put with my sheep dogs.


Moreover, the strength of their hands –
what use was it to me?
Men whose strength had perished;


“And now my soul pours itself out within me;
days of suffering take hold of me.


Night pierces my bones;
my gnawing pains never cease.


With great power God grasps my clothing;
he binds me like the collar of my tunic.


He has flung me into the mud,
and I have come to resemble dust and ashes.


I cry out to you, but you do not answer me;
I stand up, and you only look at me.


You have become cruel to me;
with the strength of your hand you attack me.


You pick me up on the wind and make me ride on it;
you toss me about in the storm.


I know that you are bringing me to death,
to the meeting place for all the living.


“Surely one does not stretch out his hand
against a broken man
when he cries for help in his distress.


Have I not wept for the unfortunate?
Was not my soul grieved for the poor?


But when I hoped for good, trouble came;
when I expected light, then darkness came.


My heart is in turmoil unceasingly;
the days of my affliction confront me.


I go about blackened, but not by the sun;
in the assembly I stand up and cry for help.


I have become a brother to jackals
and a companion of ostriches.


My skin has turned dark on me;
my body is hot with fever.


My harp is used for mourning
and my flute for the sound of weeping.

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 14:19-28


But Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and after winning the crowds over, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, presuming him to be dead. But after the disciples had surrounded him, he got up and went back into the city. On the next day he left with Barnabas for Derbe.

After they had proclaimed the good news in that city and made many disciples, they returned to Lystra, to Iconium, and to Antioch. They strengthened the souls of the disciples and encouraged them to continue in the faith, saying, “We must enter the kingdom of God through many persecutions.” When they had appointed elders for them in the various churches, with prayer and fasting they entrusted them to the protection of the Lord in whom they had believed. Then they passed through Pisidia and came into Pamphylia, and when they had spoken the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia. From there they sailed back to Antioch, where they had been commended to the grace of God for the work they had now completed. When they arrived and gathered the church together, they reported all the things God had done with them, and that he had opened a door of faith for the Gentiles. So they spent considerable time with the disciples.

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.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.

now and for ev-er. A-men.

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