May God bless us!
May God, our God, bless us!
Then all the ends of/the earth
will give him the honor he de-serves.

May God show us his favor and bless us!
May he smile up-on us!
Then those living on earth will know what you are like;
all na-tions will know how you de-liver your peo-ple.

Let foreign-ers re-joice and cel-e-brate!
For you exe-cute jus-tice a-mong the na-tions,
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Psalm 119:121-144

I do what is fair and right,
Do not a-bandon me to my op-pres-sors!
Guar-an-tee the wel-fare of your serv-ant!
Do not let the arro-gant op-press me!

My eyes grow tired as I wait for your de-liver-ance,
for your re-lia-ble prom-ise to be ful-filled.
Show your serv-ant your loyal love!
Teach me your stat-utes! I am your serv-ant.

Give me in-sight, so that I can under-stand your rules.
It is time for/the Lord to act for they break your law!
For this rea-son
I love your com-mands more than gold, even purest gold.

For this reason I care-fully follow all your pre-cepts.
I hate all de-ceitful ac-tions.
Your rules are marvel-ous. Therefore I ob-serve them.
Your in-struc-tions are a door-way through which light shines.

They give in-sight to/the un-trained.
I open my mouth and pant, be-cause I long for your com-mands.
Turn toward me and ex-tend mer-cy to me,
as you typi-cal-ly do to your loyal follow-ers.

Di-rect my steps by your word!
Do not let any sin domi-nate me!
De-liver me from op-pres-sive men,
so that I can keep your pre-cepts.

Smile on your serv-ant!
Teach me all your stat-utes!
Tears stream down from my eyes,
be-cause people do not keep your law.

You are just, O Lord,
and your judg-ments are fair.
The rules you im-pose are just,
they are ab-so-lute-ly re-lia-ble.

My zeal con-sumes me,
for my ene-mies for-get your in-struc-tions.
Your word is ab-so-lute-ly pure,
and your serv-ant loves it!

I am in-sig-nifi-cant and de-spised,
yet I do not for-get your pre-cepts.
Your jus-tice en-dures for-ev-er,
and your law is re-lia-ble.

Dis-tress and hard-ship con-front me,
yet I find de-light in your com-mands.
Your rules re-main just.
Give me in-sight so that I can live.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from Matthew 3:1-12


In those days John the Baptist came into the wilderness of Judea proclaiming, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” For he is the one about whom the prophet Isaiah had spoken:

“The voice of one shouting in the wilderness,

‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make his paths straight.’”

Now John wore clothing made from camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his diet consisted of locusts and wild honey. Then people from Jerusalem, as well as all Judea and all the region around the Jordan, were going out to him, and he was baptizing them in the Jordan River as they confessed their sins.

But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “You offspring of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Therefore produce fruit that proves your repentance, and don’t think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that God can raise up children for Abraham from these stones! Even now the ax is laid at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.

“I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the one coming after me is more powerful than I am—I am not worthy to carry his sandals! He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clean out his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn up with inextinguishable fire!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord be with you.
And al-so with _ you.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done on earth
as it is 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,

De-liver us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er,
and the glory are yours,
now and for-ever A-men.




Collect of the Day


Almighty Savior, who at noonday called your servant Saint Paul to be an apostle to the Gentiles: We pray you to illumine the world with the radiance of your glory, that all nations may come and worship you; for you live and reign for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Guidance

Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for Mission

O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh; and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
