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 - 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 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 69


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




De-liver me, O God,
for the wat-er has reached my neck.
I sink into the deep mire
where there is no sol-id ground;

I am in deep wat-er,
and the cur-rent over-pow-ers me.
I am ex-haust-ed from shout-ing for help;
my throat is sore; my eyes grow tired of look-ing for my God.

Those who hate me with-out cause
are more nu-mer-ous than the hairs of my head.
Those who want to de-stroy me,
my ene-mies for no rea-son, out-number me.

They make me re-pay what I did not steal!
O God, you are a-ware of my fool-ish sins;
my guilt is not hid-den from you.
Let none who re-ly on you be dis-graced be-cause of me,

O Sove-reign Lord of Heav-en’s Ar-my!
Let none who seek you be a-shamed
be-cause of me, O God of Is-ra-el!
For I suf-fer hu-mili-a-tion for your sake

and am thor-ough-ly dis-graced.
My own broth-ers treat me like a stran-ger;
they act as if I were a foreign-er.
Cer-tain-ly zeal for your house con-sumes me;

I en-dure the in-sults of those who in-sult you.
I weep and re-frain from eat-ing food,
which causes oth-ers to in-sult me.
I wear sack-cloth and they ridi-cule me.

Those who sit at/the cit-y gate gos-sip about me;
drunk-ards mock me in their song.
O Lord, may you hear my prayer
and be fa-vor-ably dis-posed to me!

O God, be-cause of your great loyal love,
an-swer me with your faithful de-liver-ance!
Res-cue me from/the mud! Don’t let me sink!
De-liver me from those who hate me, from/the deep wat-er!

Don’t let the cur-rent over-pow-er me!
Don’t let the deep swal-low me up!
Don’t let the Pit de-vour me!
An-swer me, O Lord, for your loyal love is good!

Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion, turn toward me!
Do not ig-nore your serv-ant, for I am in trou-ble!
An-swer me right a-way!
Come near me and re-deem me!

Be-cause of my ene-my, res-cue me!
You know how I am in-sult-ed,
hu-mili-at-ed and dis-graced;
you can see all my ene-mies.

Their in-sults are pain-ful and make me lose heart;
I look for sym-pathy, but re-ceive none,
for com-fort-ers, but find none.
They put bit-ter poi-son into my food,

and to quench my thirst they give me vine-gar to drink.
May their din-ing ta-ble be-come a trap be-fore them!
May it be a snare for that group of friends!
May their eyes be blind-ed!

Make them shake vio-lent-ly!
Pour out your judg-ment on them!
May your raging an-ger over-take them!
May their camp be-come des-o-late, their tents un-in-habit-ed!

For they har-ass the one whom you dis-ci-pline;
they spread the news a-bout the suf-fer-ing
of those whom you punish.
Hold them ac-count-able for all their sins!

Do not vindi-cate them!
May their names be de-let-ed from/the scroll of/the living!
Do not let their names be list-ed with/the god-ly!
I am op-pressed and suf-fer-ing!

O God, de-liver and pro-tect me!
I will sing praises to God's name!
I will mag-ni-fy him as I give him thanks!
That will please the Lord more than a bull with horns and hooves.

The op-pressed look on; let them re-joice!
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!
For the Lord list-ens to/the need-y;
he does not de-spise his cap-tive peo-ple.

Let the heavens and the earth praise him,
a-long with/the seas and every-thing that swims in them!
For God will de-liver Zi-on
and re-build the cities of Ju-dah,

and his people will a-gain live in them and pos-sess Zi-on.
The de-scen-dants of his serv-ants will in-herit it,
and those who are loyal to him will live in it.
You who seek God, may you be en-cour-aged!

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 Jeremiah 5:1-9


The Lord said,
“Go up and down through the streets of Jerusalem.
Look around and see for yourselves.
Search through its public squares.
See if any of you can find a single person
who deals honestly and tries to be truthful.
If you can, then I will not punish this city.

These people make promises in the name of the Lord.
But the fact is, what they swear to is really a lie.”


Lord, I know you look for faithfulness.
But even when you punish these people, they feel no remorse.
Even when you nearly destroy them, they refuse to be corrected.
They have become as hardheaded as a rock.
They refuse to change their ways.


I thought, “Surely it is only the ignorant poor who act this way.
They act like fools because they do not know what the Lord demands.
They do not know what their God requires of them.


I will go to the leaders
and speak with them.
Surely they know what the Lord demands.
Surely they know what their God requires of them.”
Yet all of them, too, have rejected his authority
and refuse to submit to him.


So like a lion from the thicket, their enemies will kill them.
Like a wolf from the rift valley, they will destroy them.
Like a leopard, they will lie in wait outside their cities
and totally destroy anyone who ventures out.
For they have rebelled so much
and done so many unfaithful things.

The Lord asked,
“How can I leave you unpunished, Jerusalem?
Your people have rejected me
and have worshiped gods that are not gods at all.
Even though I supplied all their needs, they were like an unfaithful wife to me.
They went flocking to the houses of prostitutes.


They are like lusty, well-fed stallions.
Each of them lusts after his neighbor’s wife.


I will surely punish them for doing such things!” says the Lord.
“I will surely bring retribution on such a nation as this!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of the Redeemed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing human under-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of righteous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ag-es.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name?
for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and holy works
have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, a-men!

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 5:30-47


I can do nothing on my own initiative. Just as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek my own will, but the will of the one who sent me.

“If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. There is another who testifies about me, and I know the testimony he testifies about me is true. You have sent to John, and he has testified to the truth. (I do not accept human testimony, but I say this so that you may be saved.) He was a lamp that was burning and shining, and you wanted to rejoice greatly for a short time in his light.

“But I have a testimony greater than that from John. For the deeds that the Father has assigned me to complete – the deeds I am now doing – testify about me that the Father has sent me. And the Father who sent me has himself testified about me. You people have never heard his voice nor seen his form at any time, nor do you have his word residing in you, because you do not believe the one whom he sent. You study the scriptures thoroughly because you think in them you possess eternal life, and it is these same scriptures that testify about me, but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life.

“I do not accept praise from people, but I know you, that you do not have the love of God within you. I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not accept me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. How can you believe, if you accept praise from one another and don’t seek the praise that comes from the only God?

“Do not suppose that I will accuse you before the Father. The one who accuses you is Moses, in whom you have placed your hope. If you believed Moses, you would believe me, because he wrote about me. But if you do not believe what Moses wrote, how will you believe my words?”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

Through his holy proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our ene-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to wor-ship him without fear,

ho-ly and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In/the tender com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.

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.
