Invitation



Monday - 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.


Monday - 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 56


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Have mer-cy on me, O God,
for men are at-tack-ing me!
All day long hos-tile ene-mies are tor-ment-ing me.
Those who an-tici-pate my de-feat at-tack me all day long.

In-deed, many are fighting a-gainst me, O Ex-alt-ed One.
When I am a-fraid, I trust in you.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, I am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
All day long they cause me trou-ble;
they make a habit of plotting my de-mise.
They stalk and lurk; they watch my eve-ry step,

As they pre-pare to take my life.
Be-cause they are bent on vio-lence,
do not let them es-cape!
In your an-ger bring down the na-tions, O God!

You keep track of my mis-er-y.
Put my tears in your leath-er con-tain-er!
Are they not re-corded in your scroll?
My ene-mies will turn back when I cry out/to you for help;

I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in the Lord I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, I am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
I am obli-gated to ful-fill the vows I made to you, O God;
I will give you the thank offer-ings you de-serve,
when you de-liver my life from death.

You keep my feet from stumb-ling,
so that I might serve God as I en-joy life.
I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise

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 57


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Have mer-cy on me,
O God! Have mer-cy on me!
For in you I have taken shel-ter.
In/the shad-ow of your wings

I take shelter un-til trou-ble pass-es.
I cry out for help to God Most High,
to the God who vindi-cates me.
May he send help from heav-en

and de-liver me from my ene-mies who hurl in-sults!
May God send his loyal love and faithful-ness!
I am sur-rounded by li-ons;
I lie down a-mong those who want to de-vour me;

men whose teeth are spears and ar-rows,
whose tongues are a sharp sword.
Rise up a-bove the sky, O God!
May your splen-dor cover the whole earth!

They have pre-pared a net to trap me;
I am great-ly dis-cour-aged.
They have dug a pit for me.
But they will fall into it!

I am de-ter-mined, O God!
I am de-ter-mined! I will sing and praise you!
A-wake, my soul! A-wake,
O stringed in-stru-ment and harp!

I will wake up at dawn!
I will give you thanks be-fore the na-tions, O Lord!
I will sing praises to you be-fore foreign-ers!
For your loyal love ex-tends be-yond the sky,

Your faithful-ness reach-es the clouds.
Rise up a-bove the sky, O God!
May your splen-dor cover the whole earth!
Your faithful-ness reach-es the clouds.

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 1:11-19


Later the Lord’s message came to me, “What do you see, Jeremiah?” I answered, “I see a branch of an almond tree.” Then the Lord said, “You have observed correctly. This means I am watching to make sure my threats are carried out.”

The Lord’s message came to me a second time, “What do you see?” I answered, “I see a pot of boiling water; it is tipped away from the north.” Then the Lord said, “From the north destruction will break out on all who live in the land. For I will soon summon all the peoples of the kingdoms of the north,” says the Lord. “They will come and their kings will set up their thrones near the entrances of the gates of Jerusalem. They will attack all the walls surrounding it and all the towns in Judah. In this way I will pass sentence on the people of Jerusalem and Judah because of all their wickedness. For they rejected me and offered sacrifices to other gods, worshiping what they made with their own hands.

“But you, Jeremiah, get yourself ready! Go and tell these people everything I instruct you to say. Do not be terrified of them, or I will give you good reason to be terrified of them. I, the Lord, hereby promise to make you as strong as a fortified city, an iron pillar, and a bronze wall. You will be able to stand up against all who live in the land, including the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests, and all the people of the land. They will attack you but they will not be able to overcome you, for I will be with you to rescue you,” says the Lord.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will sing to/the Lord,
for he is lofty and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my people and I will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a mighty war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his holy Name.
The chari-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The finest of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in/the Red Sea.
The fathom-less deep has over-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord,
is glori-ous and might-y;
your right hand, O Lord,
has over-thrown the ene-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
O Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glori-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the people you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your holy dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In/the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, O Lord,

In/the sanc-tu-ary, O Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ever and for ever. 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 4:27-42


Now at that very moment his disciples came back. They were shocked because he was speaking with a woman. However, no one said, “What do you want?” or “Why are you speaking with her?” Then the woman left her water jar, went off into the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Surely he can’t be the Messiah, can he?” So they left the town and began coming to him.

Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” So the disciples began to say to one another, “No one brought him anything to eat, did they?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me and to complete his work. Don’t you say, ‘There are four more months and then comes the harvest?’ I tell you, look up and see that the fields are already white for harvest! The one who reaps receives pay and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that the one who sows and the one who reaps can rejoice together. For in this instance the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”

Now many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the report of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they began asking him to stay with them. He stayed there two days, and because of his word many more believed. They said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your words, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this one really is the Savior of the world.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
