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 - Venite


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Come, let's sing to/the Lord;
let's shout for joy to/the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let's come be-fore his presence 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 caverns 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 molded the dry land.
Come, let's bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would hearken to his voice!


Psalms



Psalm 30


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I will praise you, O Lord, for you lifted me up,
and did not al-low my ene-mies to gloat over me.
O Lord my God, I cried out/to you and you healed me.
O Lord, you pulled me up from She-ol;

you res-cued me from a-mong those de-scending into the grave.
Sing to/the Lord, you faithful follow-ers of his;
give thanks to his holy name.
For his an-ger lasts only a brief mo-ment,

and his good favor re-stores one's life.
One may ex-peri-ence sor-row during the night,
but joy ar-rives in/the morn-ing.
In my self-confi-dence I said, I will never be shak-en.

O Lord, in your good favor you made me se-cure.
Then you re-ject-ed me and I was terri-fied.
To you, O Lord, I cried out;
I begged the Lord for mer-cy:

What profit is there in tak-ing my life,
in my de-scending into the Pit?
Can the dust of/the grave praise you?
Can it de-clare your loy-al-ty?

Hear, O Lord, and have mer-cy on me!
O Lord my God, de-liver me!
Then you turned my la-ment into danc-ing;
you re-moved my sack-cloth

You covered me with joy.
So now my heart will sing to you
and I will not be si-lent;
O Lord my God, I will al-ways give thanks to you.

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 32


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




How blessed is the one
whose re-bel-lious acts are for-giv-en,
and whose sin is par-doned!
How blessed is the one whose wrong-doing the Lord does not punish,

in whose spirit there is no de-ceit.
When I re-fused to con-fess my sin,
my whole body wasted a-way,
while I groaned in pain all day long.

For day and night you tor-mented me;
you tried to de-stroy me in/the in-tense heat of sum-mer.
Then I con-fessed my sin;
I no longer covered up my wrong-do-ing.

I said, I will con-fess my re-bel-lious acts to/the Lord.
And then you for-gave my sins.
So every one of your faithful follow-ers should pray to you
while there is a window of op-por-tuni-ty.

Certain-ly when the surging waters rise,
They will not reach to them.
You are my hid-ing place;
you pro-tect me from all dis-tress.

You sur-round me with shouts of joy
from those cele-brat-ing de-liver-ance.
I will in-struct and teach you
a-bout how you should live.

I will ad-vise you as I look you in/the eye.
Do not be like an unin-telli-gent horse or mule,
which will not o-bey you
un-less they are con-trolled by a bridle and bit.

An evil person suffers much pain,
but the Lord's faithful-ness over-whelms the one who trusts in him.
Re-joice in/the Lord and be happy, you who are god-ly!
Shout for joy, all you who are moral-ly up-right!

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 46:1-13



Bel kneels down,
Nebo bends low.
Their images weigh down animals and beasts.
Your heavy images are burdensome to tired animals.


Together they bend low and kneel down;
they are unable to rescue the images;
they themselves head off into captivity.


“Listen to me, O family of Jacob,
all you who are left from the family of Israel,
you who have been carried from birth,
you who have been supported from the time you left the womb.


Even when you are old, I will take care of you,
even when you have gray hair, I will carry you.
I made you and I will support you;
I will carry you and rescue you.


To whom can you compare and liken me?
Tell me whom you think I resemble, so we can be compared!


Those who empty out gold from a purse
and weigh out silver on the scale
hire a metalsmith, who makes it into a god.
They then bow down and worship it.


They put it on their shoulder and carry it;
they put it in its place and it just stands there;
it does not move from its place.
Even when someone cries out to it, it does not reply;
it does not deliver him from his distress.


Remember this, so you can be brave.
Think about it, you rebels!


Remember what I accomplished in antiquity.
Truly I am God, I have no peer;
I am God, and there is none like me,


who announces the end from the beginning
and reveals beforehand what has not yet occurred;
who says, ‘My plan will be realized,
I will accomplish what I desire;’


who summons an eagle from the east,
from a distant land, one who carries out my plan.
Yes, I have decreed,
yes, I will bring it to pass;
I have formulated a plan,
yes, I will carry it out.


Listen to me, you stubborn people,
you who distance yourselves from doing what is right.


I am bringing my deliverance near, it is not far away;
I am bringing my salvation near, it does not wait.
I will save Zion;
I will adorn Israel with my splendor.

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.


A reading from Mark 5:1-20


So they came to the other side of the lake, to the region of the Gerasenes. Just as Jesus was getting out of the boat, a man with an unclean spirit came from the tombs and met him. He lived among the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For his hands and feet had often been bound with chains and shackles, but he had torn the chains apart and broken the shackles in pieces. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Each night and every day among the tombs and in the mountains, he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and bowed down before him. Then he cried out with a loud voice, “Leave me alone, Jesus, Son of the Most High God! I implore you by God—do not torment me!” (For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of that man, you unclean spirit!”) Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “My name is Legion, for we are many.” He begged Jesus repeatedly not to send them out of the region. There on the hillside, a great herd of pigs was feeding. And the demonic spirits begged him, “Send us into the pigs. Let us enter them.” Jesus gave them permission. So the unclean spirits came out and went into the pigs. Then the herd rushed down the steep slope into the lake, and about 2,000 were drowned in the lake.

Now the herdsmen ran off and spread the news in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. They came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man sitting there, clothed, and in his right mind—the one who had the “Legion”—and they were afraid. Those who had seen what had happened to the demon-possessed man reported it, and they also told about the pigs. Then they began to beg Jesus to leave their region. As he was getting into the boat the man who had been demon-possessed asked if he could go with him. But Jesus did not permit him to do so. Instead, he said to him, “Go to your home and to your people and tell them what the Lord has done for you, that he had mercy on you.” So he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him, and all were amazed.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - 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 stronghold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw water 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-member that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-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.

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.
