Invitation



Friday - Lent Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



If we say we have no sin, we de-ceive our-selves,
and the truth is not in us;
but if we con-fess our sins, God who is faithful and just,
will for-give and cleanse us from all un-righteous-ness.

Rend your hearts and not your gar-ments.
Re-turn to/the Lord your God,
for he is gracious and merci-ful, slow to an-ger
and a-bounding in steadfast love, and re-pents of e-vil.

I will rise and go to my fa-ther,
and say to him, Fa-ther, I have sinned
a-gainst heaven, and be-fore you;
I am no longer worthy to be called your son.

To the Lord be-long mercy and for-give-ness,
be-cause we have re-belled a-gainst him
and have not o Lord
by follow-ing his laws which he set be-fore us.

Je-sus said, If any-one will come af-ter me,
let him de-ny him-self, take up his cross, and follow me.
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.


Friday - 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 95


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Come! Let's sing for joy to/the Lord!
Let's shout out praises to our pro-tector who de-livers us!
Let's enter his presence with thanks-giv-ing!
Let's shout out to him in cele-bra-tion!

For the Lord is/a great God,
a great king who is su-peri-or to all gods.
The depths of/the earth are in his hand,
and the mountain peaks be-long to him.

The sea is his, for he made it.
His hands formed the dry land.
Come! Let's bow down and wor-ship!
Let's kneel be-fore the Lord, our Cre-a-tor!

For he is our God;
and we are the people of his pas-ture,
the sheep he owns.
To-day, if only you would o-bey him!

He says, Don't be stubborn like they were at Mer-i-bah,
like they were that day at Mas-sah in/the wil-der-ness,
where your an-cestors chal-lenged my au-thori-ty,
and tried my pa-tience, even though they had seen my works.

For forty years I was con-tin-ual-ly dis-gusted with that gener-a-tion,
and I said, These people de-sire to go a-stray;
they do not o-bey my com-mands.
So I made a vow in my an-ger,

They will never enter into the rest-ing place,
the place I had set/a-side for them.
Don't be stubborn like they were at Mer-i-bah,
like they were that day at Mas-sah in/the wil-der-ness.

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 40


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I re-lied com-pletely on/the Lord,
and he turned toward me and heard my cry for help.
He lifted me out of/the water-y pit,
out _ of/the slim-y mud.

He placed my feet on//a rock
and gave me se-cure foot-ing.
He gave me reason to sing a new song, praising our God.
May many see what God has done,

So that they might swear al-le-giance to him and trust in/the Lord!
How blessed is the one who trusts in/the Lord
and does not seek help from/the proud or from li-ars!
O Lord, my God, you have ac-com-plished many things;

you have done a-mazing things
and carried out your purpos-es for us.
No one can thwart you!
I want to de-clare them and talk/a-bout them,

but they are too numer-ous to re-count!
Re-ceiving sacri-fic-es and offer-ings are not your pri-mary con-cern.
You make that quite clear to me!
You do not ask for burnt sacri-fic-es and sin offer-ings.

Then I say, Look! I come!
What is written in/the scroll per-tains to me.
I want to do what pleases you, my God.
Your law domi-nates my thoughts.

I have told the great as-sem-bly a-bout your jus-tice.
Look! I spare no words! O Lord, you know this is true.
I have not failed to tell/a-bout your jus-tice;
I spoke/a-bout your re-li-a-biil-ty and de-liver-ance;

I have not ne-glected to tell the great as-sem-bly
a-bout your loyal love and faithful-ness.
O Lord, you do not with-hold your com-passion from me.
May your loyal love and faithful-ness con-tin-ual-ly pro-tect me!

For in-numer-a-ble dangers sur-round me.
My sins over-take me so I am un-able to see;
they out-number the hairs of my head
so my strength is fail-ing me.

Please be willing, O Lord, to res-cue me!
O Lord, hurry and help me!
May those who are trying to snatch a-way my life
be total-ly em-bar-rassed and a-shamed!

May those who want to harm me
be turned back and a-shamed!
May those who say to me, A-ha! A-ha!
be hu-mili-ated and dis-graced!

May all those who seek you
be happy and re-joice in you!
May those who love to ex-peri-ence your de-liver-ance
say con-tin-ual-ly, May the Lord be praised!

I am op-pressed and need-y!
May the Lord pay at-ten-tion to me!
You are my helper and my de-liver-er!
O my God, do not de-lay!

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 54


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O God, de-liver me by your name!
Vindi-cate me by your power!
O God, list-en to my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to what I say!

For foreign-ers at-tack me;
ruthless men, who don't re-spect God, seek my life.
Look, God is my de-liver-er!
The Lord is a-mong those who sup-port me.

May those who wait to am-bush me
be re-paid for their e-vil!
As a demon-stration of your faithful-ness,
con-found and de-stroy them!

With a free-will offer-ing I will sacri-fice to you!
I will give thanks to your name, O Lord, for it is good!
Surely he res-cues me from all trou-ble,
and I triumph over my ene-mies.

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 Deuteronomy 10:12-22


Now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you except to revere him, to obey all his commandments, to love him, to serve him with all your mind and being, and to keep the Lord’s commandments and statutes that I am giving you today for your own good? The heavens—indeed the highest heavens—belong to the Lord your God, as does the earth and everything in it. However, only to your ancestors did he show his loving favor, and he chose you, their descendants, from all peoples—as is apparent today. Therefore, cleanse your hearts and stop being so stubborn! For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, mighty, and awesome God who is unbiased and takes no bribe, who justly treats the orphan and widow, and who loves resident foreigners, giving them food and clothing. So you must love the resident foreigner because you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. Revere the Lord your God, serve him, be loyal to him, and take oaths only in his name. He is the one you should praise; he is your God, the one who has done these great and awesome things for you that you have seen. When your ancestors went down to Egypt, they numbered only seventy, but now the Lord your God has made you as numerous as the stars of the sky.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 3:22-36


After this, Jesus and his disciples came into Judean territory, and there he spent time with them and was baptizing. John was also baptizing at Aenon near Salim, because water was plentiful there, and people were coming to him and being baptized. (For John had not yet been thrown into prison.)

Now a dispute came about between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew concerning ceremonial washing. So they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, the one who was with you on the other side of the Jordan River, about whom you testified – see, he is baptizing, and everyone is flocking to him!”

John replied, “No one can receive anything unless it has been given to him from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but rather, ‘I have been sent before him.’ The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands by and listens for him, rejoices greatly when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. This then is my joy, and it is complete. He must become more important while I become less important.”

The one who comes from above is superior to all. The one who is from the earth belongs to the earth and speaks about earthly things. The one who comes from heaven is superior to all. He testifies about what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. The one who has accepted his testimony has confirmed clearly that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for he does not give the Spirit sparingly. The Father loves the Son and has placed all things under his authority. The one who believes in the Son has eternal life. The one who rejects the Son will not see life, but God’s wrath remains on him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Collects of the Day


O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Fridays

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Prayer for Mission

Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name.

Amen.
