Sunday - 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-vation 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 every 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 lips.
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.


Sunday - 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 63


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O God, you are my God!
I long for you! My soul thirsts for you,
my flesh yearns for you,
in/a dry and parched land where there is no wat-er.

Yes, in/the sanc-tu-ary I have seen you,
and witnessed your power and splen-dor.
Be-cause your loyal love is better than life it-self,
my lips will praise you al-ways.

For this rea-son
I will praise you while I live;
and in your holy name
I will lift up my hands in thanks.

As if with choice meat you satis-fy my soul.
My mouth joy-fully praises you,
When-ever I re-member you on my bed,
and I think a-bout you during the night-time hours.

For you are my de-liver-er;
Un-der your wings I re-joice.
My soul pur-sues you;
your right hand up-holds me.

Ene-mies seek to de-stroy my life,
but they will de-scend into the depths of/the earth.
Each one will be handed over to/the sword;
their corpses will be eaten by jack-als.

But the king will re-joice in God;
every-one who takes oaths in his name will boast,
For the mouths of those who speak lies
will be shut up and si-lenced.

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 98


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Sing to/the Lord a new song,
for he per-forms a-mazing deeds!
By his right hand and his mighty arm
he ac-com-plishes de-liver-ance.

The Lord demon-strates his power to de-liv-er;
in the sight of/the na-tions he re-veals his jus-tice.
He re-mains loyal and faithful to/the fami-ly of Is-ra-el.
All the ends of/the earth see our God de-liver us.

Shout out praises to/the Lord, all the earth!
Break out in a joyful shout and sing!
Sing to/the Lord ac-com-panied by a harp,
ac-com-panied by a harp and the sound of mu-sic!

With trumpets and the blaring of/the ram's horn,
shout out praises be-fore the king, the Lord!
Let the sea and every-thing in it shout,
a-long with/the world and those who live in it!

Let the rivers clap their hands!
Let the mountains sing in uni-son be-fore the Lord!
For he comes to judge the earth!
He judges the world fairly, and the na-tions in/a just man-ner.

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 47:1-15



“Fall down! Sit in the dirt,
O virgin daughter Babylon!
Sit on the ground, not on a throne,
O daughter of the Babylonians!
Indeed, you will no longer be called delicate and pampered.


Pick up millstones and grind flour.
Remove your veil,
strip off your skirt,
expose your legs,
cross the streams.


Let your naked body be exposed.
Your shame will be on display!
I will get revenge;
I will not have pity on anyone,”


says our Protector—
the Lord of Heaven’s Armies is his name,
the Holy One of Israel.


“Sit silently! Go to a hiding place,
O daughter of the Babylonians!
Indeed, you will no longer be called ‘Queen of kingdoms.’


I was angry at my people;
I defiled my special possession
and handed them over to you.
You showed them no mercy;
you even placed a very heavy burden on old people.


You said,
‘I will rule forever as permanent queen!’
You did not think about these things;
you did not consider how it would turn out.


So now, listen to this,
O one who lives so lavishly,
who lives securely,
who says to herself,
‘I am unique! No one can compare to me!
I will never have to live as a widow;
I will never lose my children.’


Both of these will come upon you
suddenly, in one day!
You will lose your children and be widowed.
You will be overwhelmed by these tragedies,
despite your many incantations
and your numerous amulets.


You were complacent in your evil deeds;
you thought, ‘No one sees me.’
Your self-professed wisdom and knowledge lead you astray,
when you say, ‘I am unique! No one can compare to me!’


Disaster will overtake you;
you will not know how to charm it away.
Destruction will fall on you;
you will not be able to appease it.
Calamity will strike you suddenly,
before you recognize it.


Persist in trusting your amulets
and your many incantations,
which you have faithfully recited since your youth!
Maybe you will be successful—
maybe you will scare away disaster.


You are tired out from listening to so much advice.
Let them take their stand—
the ones who see omens in the sky,
who gaze at the stars,
who make monthly predictions—
let them rescue you from the disaster that is about to overtake you!


Look, they are like straw
that the fire burns up;
they cannot rescue themselves
from the heat of the flames.
There are no coals to warm them,
no firelight to enjoy.


They will disappoint you,
those you have so faithfully dealt with since your youth.
Each strays off in his own direction,
leaving no one to rescue you.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Seek the Lord while he wills to/be found;
call up-on him when he draws near.
Let the wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-passion,
Let then re-turn to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from/the heav-ens
and re-turns not a-gain,
but wat-ers the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giving a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread and fruit for eat-ing,

So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not re-turn to me emp-ty;
But it will ac-com-plish that which I have pur-posed,
and prosper in that for which I sent it.

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 John 5:2-18


Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool called Bethzatha in Aramaic, which has five covered walkways. A great number of sick, blind, lame, and paralyzed people were lying in these walkways. Now a man was there who had been disabled for 38 years. When Jesus saw him lying there and when he realized that the man had been disabled a long time already, he said to him, “Do you want to become well?” The sick man answered him, “Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up. While I am trying to get into the water, someone else goes down there before me.” Jesus said to him, “Stand up! Pick up your mat and walk.” Immediately the man was healed, and he picked up his mat and started walking. (Now that day was a Sabbath.)

So the Jewish leaders said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and you are not permitted to carry your mat.” But he answered them, “The man who made me well said to me, ‘Pick up your mat and walk.’” They asked him, “Who is the man who said to you, ‘Pick up your mat and walk’?” But the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had slipped out, since there was a crowd in that place.

After this Jesus found him at the temple and said to him, “Look, you have become well. Don’t sin any more, lest anything worse happen to you.” The man went away and informed the Jewish leaders that Jesus was the one who had made him well.

Now because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jewish leaders began persecuting him. So he told them, “My Father is working until now, and I too am working.” For this reason the Jewish leaders were trying even harder to kill him because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was also calling God his own Father, thus making himself equal with God.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
