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 - Jubilate


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Be joy-ful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with glad-ness
and come be-fore his pres-ence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

He him-self has made us, and we are his;
we are his peo-ple and the sheep of his pas-ture.
En-ter his gates with thanks-giv-ing;
go into his courts with praise;

Give thanks to him and call up-on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mer-cy is ev-er last-ing;
and his faith-ful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalms



Psalm 101


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will sing a-bout loy-al-ty and jus-tice!
To you, O Lord, I will sing prais-es!
I will walk in the way of in-teg-ri-ty.
When will you come to me?

I will con-duct my busi-ness with in-teg-ri-ty
in the midst of my pal-ace.
I will not e-ven con-sid-er do-ing what is dis-hon-est.
I hate do-ing e-vil; I will have no part of it.

I will have noth-ing to do with a per-verse per-son;
I will not per-mit e-vil.
I will de-stroy an-y-one who slan-ders his neigh-bor in se-cret.
I will not tol-er-ate an-y-one who has a haugh-ty de-mean-or

I will not tol-er-ate an ar-ro-gant at-ti-tude.
I will fa-vor the hon-est peo-ple of the land,
and al-low them to live with me.
Those who walk in the way of in-teg-ri-ty will at-tend me.

De-ceit-ful peo-ple will not live in my pal-ace.
Li-ars will not be wel-come in my pres-ence.
Each morn-ing I will de-stroy all the wick-ed peo-ple in the land,
and re-move all e-vil-do-ers from the cit-y of the Lord.

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 109


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O God whom I praise, do not ig-nore me!
For they say cruel and de-cep-tive things to me; they lie to me.
They sur-round me and say hate-ful things;
they at-tack me for no rea-son.

They re-pay my love with ac-cu-sa-tion, but I con-tin-ue to pray.
They re-pay me e-vil for good, and hate for love.
Ap-point an e-vil man to tes-ti-fy a-gainst him!
May an ac-cus-er stand at his right side!

When he is judged, he will be found guilt-y!
Then his prayer will be re-gard-ed as sin-ful.
May his days be few!
May an-oth-er take his job!

May his chil-dren be fa-ther-less, and his wife a wid-ow!
May his chil-dren roam a-round beg-ging,
ask-ing for hand-outs as they leave their ru-ined home!
May the cred-i-tor seize all he owns!

May stran-gers loot his prop-er-ty!
May no one show him kind-ness!
May no one have com-pas-sion on his fa-ther-less chil-dren!
May his de-scen-dants be cut off!

May the mem-o-ry of them be wiped out
by the time the next gen-er-a-tion ar-rives!
May his an-ces-tors sins be re-mem-bered by the Lord!
May his moth-er's sin not be for-got-ten!

May the Lord be con-stant-ly a-ware of them,
and cut off the mem-o-ry of his chil-dren from the earth!
For he nev-er bo-thered to show kind-ness;
he har-assed the op-pressed and need-y,

and killed the dis-heart-ened.
He loved to curse oth-ers,
so those curs-es have come up-on him.
He had no de-sire to bless an-y-one,

so he has ex-pe-ri-enced no bles-sing.
He made curs-ing a way of life,
so curs-es poured into his stom-ach like wa-ter
Curs-es seeped into his bones like oil.

May a curse at-tach it-self to him,
like a gar-ment one puts on, or a belt one wears con-tin-ual-ly!
May the Lord re-pay my ac-cus-ers in this way,
those who say e-vil things a-bout me!

O sov-ereign Lord, in-ter-vene on my be-half
for the sake of your rep-u-ta-tion!
Be-cause your loy-al love is good, de-liv-er me!
For I am op-pressed and need-y,

and my heart beats vio-lent-ly with-in me.
I am fad-ing a-way like a shad-ow at the end of the day;
I am shak-en off like a lo-cust.
I am so starved my knees shake;

I have turned into skin and bones.
I am dis-dained by them.
When they see me, they shake their heads.
Help me, O Lord my God!

Be-cause you are faith-ful to me, de-liv-er me!
Then they will real-ize this is your work,
and that you, Lord, have ac-com-plished it.
They curse, but you will bless.

When they at-tack, they will be hu-mil-i-at-ed,
but your serv-ant will re-joice.
My ac-cus-ers will be cov-ered with shame,
and draped in hu-mil-i-a-tion as if it were a robe.

I will thank the Lord pro-fuse-ly,
in the mid-dle of a crowd I will praise him,
be-cause he stands at the right hand of the need-y,
to de-liv-er him from those who threat-en his life.

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 4:11-19



Old and new wine
take away the understanding of my people.


They consult their wooden idols,
and their diviner’s staff answers with an oracle.
The wind of prostitution blows them astray;
they commit spiritual adultery against their God.


They sacrifice on the mountaintops,
and burn offerings on the hills;
they sacrifice under oak, poplar, and terebinth,
because their shade is so pleasant.
As a result, your daughters have become cult prostitutes,
and your daughters-in-law commit adultery!


I will not punish your daughters when they commit prostitution,
nor your daughters-in-law when they commit adultery.
For the men consort with harlots,
they sacrifice with temple prostitutes.
It is true: “A people that lacks understanding will come to ruin!”


Although you, O Israel, commit adultery,
do not let Judah become guilty!
Do not journey to Gilgal!
Do not go up to Beth Aven!
Do not swear, “As surely as the Lord lives!”


Israel has rebelled like a stubborn heifer!
Soon the Lord will put them out to pasture
like a lamb in a broad field!


Ephraim has attached himself to idols;
Do not go near him!


They consume their alcohol,
then engage in cult prostitution;
they dearly love their shameful behavior.


A whirlwind has wrapped them in its wings;
they will be brought to shame because of their idolatrous worship.

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 21:15-26


After these days we got ready and started up to Jerusalem. Some of the disciples from Caesarea came along with us too, and brought us to the house of Mnason of Cyprus, a disciple from the earliest times, with whom we were to stay. When we arrived in Jerusalem, the brothers welcomed us gladly. The next day Paul went in with us to see James, and all the elders were there. When Paul had greeted them, he began to explain in detail what God had done among the Gentiles through his ministry. When they heard this, they praised God. Then they said to him, “You see, brother, how many thousands of Jews there are who have believed, and they are all ardent observers of the law. They have been informed about you – that you teach all the Jews now living among the Gentiles to abandon Moses, telling them not to circumcise their children or live according to our customs. What then should we do? They will no doubt hear that you have come. So do what we tell you: We have four men who have taken a vow; take them and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses, so that they may have their heads shaved. Then everyone will know there is nothing in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself live in conformity with the law. But regarding the Gentiles who have believed, we have written a letter, having decided that they should avoid meat that has been sacrificed to idols and blood and what has been strangled and sexual immorality.” Then Paul took the men the next day, and after he had purified himself along with them, he went to the temple and gave notice of the completion of the days of purification, when the sacrifice would be offered for each of them.

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.




Wednesday - Our Father

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.

And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

And grant us your sal-va-tion.
