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 119:145-176


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I cried out with all my heart,
Hear and an-swer me, O Lord!
I will ob-serve your stat-utes.
I have cried out to you;

Please de-liv-er me,
so that I can keep your rules.
I am up be-fore dawn cry-ing for help.
I find hope in your word.

My eyes an-tic-i-pate the night-time hours,
so that I can med-i-tate on your word.
Lis-ten to me be-cause of your loy-al love!
O Lord, re-vive me, as you typ-i-cal-ly do!

Those who are ea-ger to do wrong draw near;
they are far from your law.
You are near, O Lord,
and all your com-mands are re-li-a-ble.

I learned long a-go
that you or-dained your rules to last.
See my pain and res-cue me!
For I do not for-get your law.

Fight for me and de-fend me!
Re-vive me with your word!
The wick-ed have no chance for de-liv-er-ance,
for they do not seek your stat-utes.

Your com-pas-sion is great, O Lord.
Re-vive me, as you typ-i-cal-ly do!
The en-e-mies who chase me are nu-mer-ous.
Yet I do not turn a-side from your rules.

I take note of the treach-er-ous and de-spise them,
be-cause they do not keep your in-struc-tions.
See how I love your pre-cepts!
O Lord, re-vive me with your loy-al love!

Your in-struc-tions are to-tal-ly re-li-a-ble;
all your just reg-u-la-tions en-dure.
Rul-ers pur-sue me for no rea-son,
yet I am more a-fraid of dis-o-bey-ing your in-struc-tions.

I re-joice in your in-struc-tions,
like one who finds much plun-der.
I love your law;
I hate and de-spise de-ceit;

Sev-en times a day I praise you
be-cause of your just reg-u-la-tions.
Those who love your law are com-plete-ly se-cure;
noth-ing caus-es them to stum-ble.

I hope for your de-liv-er-ance,
O Lord, I o-bey your com-mands.
I keep your rules;
I love them all great-ly.

I keep your pre-cepts and rules,
for you are a-ware of eve-ry-thing I do.
Lis-ten to my cry for help, O Lord!
Give me in-sight by your word!

Lis-ten to my ap-peal for mer-cy!
De-liv-er me, as you prom-ised.
May praise flow free-ly from my lips,
for you teach me your stat-utes.

May my tongue sing a-bout your in-struc-tions,
for all your com-mands are just.
May your hand help me,
for I choose to o-bey your pre-cepts.

I long for your de-liv-er-ance, O Lord;
I find de-light in your law.
May I live and praise you!
May your reg-u-la-tions help me!

I have wan-dered off like a lost sheep.
Come look-ing for your serv-ant,
for I do not for-get your com-mands.
Your com-pas-sion is great, O 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.


Readings



A reading from Micah 2:1-13



Beware wicked schemers,
those who devise calamity as they lie in bed.
As soon as morning dawns they carry out their plans,
because they have the power to do so.


They confiscate the fields they desire
and seize the houses they want.
They defraud people of their homes
and deprive people of the land they have inherited.

Therefore the Lord says this:
“Look, I am devising disaster for this nation!
It will be like a yoke from which you cannot free your neck.
You will no longer walk proudly,
for it will be a time of catastrophe.


In that day people will sing this taunt song to you—
they will mock you with this lament:
‘We are completely destroyed;
they sell off the property of my people.
How they remove it from me!
They assign our fields to the conqueror.’”


Therefore no one will assign you land in the Lord’s community.

“Don’t preach with such impassioned rhetoric,” they say excitedly.
“These prophets should not preach of such things;
we will not be overtaken by humiliation.”


Does the family of Jacob say,
“The Lord’s patience can’t be exhausted—
he would never do such things”?
To be sure, my commands bring a reward
for those who obey them,


but you rise up as an enemy against my people.
You steal a robe from a friend,
from those who pass by peacefully as if returning from a war.


You wrongly evict widows among my people from their cherished homes.
You defraud their children of their prized inheritance.


But you are the ones who will be forced to leave!
For this land is not secure;
sin will thoroughly destroy it!


If a lying windbag should come and say,
‘I’ll promise you blessings of wine and beer,’
he would be just the right preacher for these people!


“I will certainly gather all of you, O Jacob,
I will certainly assemble those Israelites who remain.
I will bring them together like sheep in a fold,
like a flock in the middle of a pasture;
they will be so numerous that they will make a lot of noise.


The one who can break through barriers will lead them out;
they will break out, pass through the gate, and leave.
Their king will advance before them;
the Lord himself will lead them.”

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 Luke 7:18-35


John’s disciples informed him about all these things. So John called two of his disciples and sent them to Jesus to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?” When the men came to Jesus, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?’” At that very time Jesus cured many people of diseases, sicknesses, and evil spirits, and granted sight to many who were blind. So he answered them, “Go tell John what you have seen and heard: The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have good news proclaimed to them. Blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me.”

When John’s messengers had gone, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? What did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Look, those who wear soft clothing and live in luxury are in the royal palaces! What did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet. This is the one about whom it is written, ‘Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’ I tell you, among those born of women no one is greater than John. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he is.” (Now all the people who heard this, even the tax collectors, acknowledged God’s justice because they had been baptized with John’s baptism. However, the Pharisees and the experts in religious law rejected God’s purpose for themselves because they had not been baptized by John.)

“To what then should I compare the people of this generation, and what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to one another,
“‘We played the flute for you, yet you did not dance;
we wailed in mourning, yet you did not weep.’

For John the Baptist has come eating no bread and drinking no wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon!’ The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look at him, a glutton and a drunk, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is vindicated by all her children.”

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.

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,

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