Invitation



Saturday - 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.


Saturday - 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 75


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




We give you thanks!
We give thanks to you, O God!
You re-veal your pres-ence;
peo-ple tell a-bout your a-mazing deeds.

God says, At the ap-point-ed times, I judge fair-ly.
When the earth and all its in-habit-ants dis-solve in fear,
I make its pil-lars se-cure.
I say to/the proud, Do not be proud,

And to/the wick-ed,
Do not be so con-fi-dent of vic-to-ry!
Do not be so cer-tain you have won!
Do not speak with your head held so high!

For vic-to-ry does not come from/the east or west,
or _ from/the wil-der-ness.
For God is the judge!
He brings one down and ex-alts an-oth-er.

For the Lord holds in his hand a cup full of foam-ing wine
mixed with spice, and pours it out.
Sure-ly all the wicked of/the earth
will slurp it up and drink it to its ver-y last drop.

As for me, I will con-tin-ual-ly tell what you have done;
I will sing praises to/the God of Ja-cob!
God says, I will bring down all the power of/the wick-ed;
the god-ly will be vic-to-ri-ous.

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 76


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




God has re-vealed him-self in Ju-dah;
in Is-ra-el his rep-u-ta-tion is great.
He lives in Sa-lem; he dwells in Zi-on.
There he shat-tered the ar-rows,

He shat-tered the shield, the sword,
and the rest of/the weap-ons of war.
You shine bright-ly and re-veal your maj-es-ty,
as you de-scend from/the hills where you killed your prey.

The brave-heart-ed were plun-dered; they fell a-sleep.
All the war-ri-ors were help-less.
At the sound of your bat-tle cry, O God of Ja-cob,
both rid-er and horse fell a-sleep.

You are awe-some! Yes, you!
Who can with-stand your in-tense an-ger?
From heaven you an-nounced what their pun-ish-ment would be.
The earth was a-fraid and si-lent when God a-rose to exe-cute judg-ment,

and to de-liver all the op-pressed of/the earth.
Cer-tain-ly your an-gry judg-ment up-on men will bring you praise;
you re-veal your an-ger in full meas-ure.
Make vows to/the Lord your God and re-pay them!

Let all those who sur-round him
bring trib-ute to/the awe-some one!
He hum-bles princ-es;
the kings of/the earth re-gard him as awe-some.

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 5:20-31



“Proclaim this message among the descendants of Jacob.
Make it known throughout Judah.


Tell them: ‘Hear this,
you foolish people who have no understanding,
who have eyes but do not discern,
who have ears but do not perceive:


“You should fear me!” says the Lord.
“You should tremble in awe before me!
I made the sand to be a boundary for the sea,
a permanent barrier that it can never cross.
Its waves may roll, but they can never prevail.
They may roar, but they can never cross beyond that boundary.”


But these people have stubborn and rebellious hearts.
They have turned aside and gone their own way.


They do not say to themselves,
“Let us revere the Lord our God.
It is he who gives us the autumn rains and the spring rains at the proper time.
It is he who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.”


Your misdeeds have stopped these things from coming.
Your sins have deprived you of my bounty.’


Indeed, there are wicked scoundrels among my people.
They lie in wait like bird catchers hiding in ambush.
They set deadly traps to catch people.


Like a cage filled with the birds that have been caught,
their houses are filled with the gains of their fraud and deceit.
That is how they have gotten so rich and powerful.


That is how they have grown fat and sleek.
There is no limit to the evil things they do.
They do not plead the cause of the fatherless in such a way as to win it.
They do not defend the rights of the poor.


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


Something horrible and shocking
is going on in the land of Judah:


The prophets prophesy lies.
The priests exercise power by their own authority.
And my people love to have it this way.
But they will not be able to help you when the time of judgment comes!

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 John 7:1-13


After this Jesus traveled throughout Galilee. He stayed out of Judea because the Jewish leaders wanted to kill him. Now the Jewish Feast of Shelters was near. So Jesus’ brothers advised him, “Leave here and go to Judea so your disciples may see your miracles that you are performing. For no one who seeks to make a reputation for himself does anything in secret. If you are doing these things, show yourself to the world.” (For not even his own brothers believed in him.)

So Jesus replied, “My time has not yet arrived, but you are ready at any opportunity! The world cannot hate you, but it hates me, because I am testifying about it that its deeds are evil. You go up to the feast yourselves. I am not going up to this feast because my time has not yet fully arrived.” When he had said this, he remained in Galilee.

But when his brothers had gone up to the feast, then Jesus himself also went up, not openly but in secret. So the Jewish leaders were looking for him at the feast, asking, “Where is he?” There was a lot of grumbling about him among the crowds. Some were saying, “He is a good man,” but others, “He deceives the common people.” However, no one spoke openly about him for fear of the Jewish leaders.

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.
