Saturday - Epiphany Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Na-tions shall come to your light,
and kings to/the brightness of your ris-ing.
I will give you as/a light to/the na-tions,
that my sal-va-tion may reach to/the end of/the earth.

From the rising of/the sun to its set-ting
my Name shall be great a-mong the na-tions,
and in eve-ry place
in-cense shall be offered to my Name,

and a pure offer-ing: for my Name shall be great
a-mong the na-tions, says the Lord of Hosts.
Lord, o-pen our lip.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

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.


Saturday - 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 presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

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

Give thanks to him and call on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mercy is ever last-ing;
and his faithful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalms



Psalm 20


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




May the Lord answer you when you are in trou-ble;
May the God of Ja-cob make you se-cure!
May he send you help from his tem-ple;
from Zi-on may he give you sup-port!

May he take notice of all your offer-ings;
May he ac-cept your burnt sacri-fice!
May he grant your hearts de-sire;
may he bring all your plans to pass!

Then we will shout for joy over your vic-to-ry;
we will re-joice in/the name of our God!
May the Lord grant all your re-quests!
Now I am sure that/the Lord will de-liver his chosen king;

he will inter-vene for him from his holy heaven-ly tem-ple,
and dis-play his mighty a-bili-ty to de-liv-er.
Some trust in chari-ots and others in hors-es,
but we de-pend on/the Lord our God.

They will fall down,
but we will stand firm be-fore God.
The Lord will de-liver the king;
he will answer us when we call to him for help!

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 21


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord, the king re-joic-es
in the strength you have giv-en;
he takes great de-light
in the de-liver-ance you pro-vide.

You grant him his heart's de-sire;
you do not re-fuse his re-quest.
For you bring him rich bles-sings;
you place a gold-en crown on his head.

He asked you to sus-tain his life,
and you have granted him long life
and an en-during dy-nas-ty.
Your de-liver-ance brings him great hon-or;

You give him ma-jes-tic splen-dor.
For you grant him last-ing bles-sings;
you give him great joy
by al-lowing him into your pres-ence.

For the king trusts in/the Lord,
and be-cause of/the Most High's faithful-ness
the king is not shak-en.
You pre-vail over all your ene-mies;

Your power is too great for those who hate you.
You burn them up like/a fier-y furnace when you ap-pear;
the Lord an-grily de-vours them;
and his fire con-sumes them.

You de-stroy their off-spring from/the earth,
their de-scend-ants from a-mong the human race.
Yes, they in-tend to do you harm;
they dream up schemes, but do not suc-ceed.

For you make them re-treat
when you aim your arrows at them.
Rise up, O Lord, in strength!
We will sing and praise your power!

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 Isaiah 43:1-13



Now, this is what the Lord says,
the one who created you, O Jacob,
and formed you, O Israel:
“Don’t be afraid, for I will protect you.
I call you by name, you are mine.


When you pass through the waters, I am with you;
when you pass through the streams, they will not overwhelm you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned;
the flames will not harm you.


For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your deliverer.
I have handed over Egypt as a ransom price,
Ethiopia and Seba in place of you.


Since you are precious and special in my sight
and I love you,
I will hand over people in place of you,
nations in place of your life.


Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
From the east I will bring your descendants;
from the west I will gather you.


I will say to the north, ‘Hand them over!’
and to the south, ‘Don’t hold any back!’
Bring my sons from distant lands,
and my daughters from the remote regions of the earth,


everyone who belongs to me,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed—yes, whom I made”.


Bring out the people who are blind, even though they have eyes,
those who are deaf, even though they have ears!


All nations gather together,
the peoples assemble.
Who among them announced this?
Who predicted earlier events for us?
Let them produce their witnesses to testify they were right;
let them listen and affirm, “It is true.”


“You are my witnesses,” says the Lord,
“my servant whom I have chosen
so that you may consider and believe in me,
and understand that I am he.
No god was formed before me,
and none will outlive me.


I, I am the Lord,
and there is no deliverer besides me.


I decreed and delivered and proclaimed,
and there was no other god among you.
You are my witnesses,” says the Lord, “that I am God.


From this day forward I am he;
no one can deliver from my power;
I will act, and who can prevent it?”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to/the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zi-on of/the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.


A reading from Mark 2:23-3:6


Jesus was going through the grain fields on a Sabbath, and his disciples began to pick some heads of wheat as they made their way. So the Pharisees said to him, “Look, why are they doing what is against the law on the Sabbath?” He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and he and his companions were hungry— how he entered the house of God when Abiathar was high priest and ate the sacred bread, which is against the law for any but the priests to eat, and also gave it to his companions?” Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for people, not people for the Sabbath. For this reason the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

Then Jesus entered the synagogue again, and a man was there who had a withered hand. They watched Jesus closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath, so that they could accuse him. So he said to the man who had the withered hand, “Stand up among all these people.” Then he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath, or evil, to save a life or destroy it?” But they were silent. After looking around at them in anger, grieved by the hardness of their hearts, he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. So the Pharisees went out immediately and began plotting with the Herodians, as to how they could assassinate him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - 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 powers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of a-postles praises you.
The no-ble fellow-ship of proph-ets praises you.
The white-robed army of mar-tyrs praises you.
Through-out the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and only Son, worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, advo-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 over-came the sting of death
and o-pened the kingdom of heaven to all be-liev-ers.
You are seated at God's 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 ever-last-ing.

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
