Invitation



Sunday - 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.


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 24


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




The Lord owns the earth and all/it con-tains,
the world and all who live in it.
For he set its foun-dation up-on the sea,
and es-tab-lished it up-on/the o-cean cur-rents.

Who is al-lowed to a-scend the mountain of/the Lord?
Who may go up to his holy dwelling place?
The one whose deeds are blame-less
and whose mo-tives are pure,

Who does not lie,
or make prom-ises with no in-tention of keeping them.
Such god-ly people are re-warded by/the Lord,
and vindi-cat-ed by/the God who de-livers them.

Such pu-rity have the people who seek his fa-vor,
Ja-cob’s de-scendants, who pray to him.
Look up, you gates!
Rise up, you e-ter-nal doors!

Then the ma-jestic king will en-ter!
Who is this ma-jestic king?
The Lord who is strong and might-y!
The Lord who is mighty in bat-tle!

Look up, you gates!
Rise up, you e-ter-nal doors!
Then the ma-jestic king will en-ter!
Who is this ma-jestic king?

The Lord of Heaven’s Ar-my!
He is the ma-jestic king!
The Lord who is strong and might-y!
He is the ma-jestic king!

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 29


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Ac-knowl-edge the Lord, you heaven-ly be-ings,
ac-knowl-edge the Lord's majes-ty and power!
Ac-knowl-edge the majes-ty of/the Lord's repu-ta-tion!
Wor-ship the Lord in holy at-tire!

The Lord's shout is heard over the wat-er;
the ma-jestic God thun-ders,
the Lord ap-pears over the surging wat-er.
The Lord's shout is power-ful,

the Lord's shout is ma-jes-tic.
The Lord's shout breaks the ce-dars,
the Lord shatters the ce-dars of Leb-a-non.
He makes Leb-a-non skip like a calf

He makes Sir-ion like a young ox.
The Lord's shout strikes with flaming fire.
The Lord's shout shakes the wil-der-ness,
the Lord shakes the wilder-ness of Ka-desh.

The Lord's shout bends the large trees
and strips the leaves from/the for-est.
Every-one in his tem-ple says, ma-jes-tic
The Lord sits en-throned over the en-gulf-ing wat-ers,

the Lord sits en-throned as the e-ter-nal king.
The Lord gives his people strength;
the Lord grants his people se-cu-ri-ty.
the Lord sits en-throned as the e-ter-nal king.

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 1:1-10


The following is a record of what Jeremiah son of Hilkiah prophesied. He was one of the priests who lived at Anathoth in the territory of the tribe of Benjamin. The Lord’s message came to him in the thirteenth year that Josiah son of Amon ruled over Judah. It also came in the days of Jehoiakim, son of Josiah, king of Judah, and continued until the eleventh year of Zedekiah, son of Josiah, king of Judah, until the people of Jerusalem were taken into exile in the fifth month of that year.

The Lord’s message came to me,


“Before I formed you in your mother’s womb, I chose you.
Before you were born, I set you apart.
I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations.”

I answered, “Oh, Sovereign Lord, Really I do not know how to speak well enough for that, for I am too young.” The Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ But go to whomever I send you and say whatever I tell you. Do not be afraid of those to whom I send you, for I will be with you to protect you,” says the Lord. Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I will most assuredly give you the words you are to speak for me. Know for certain that I hereby give you the authority to announce to nations and kingdoms that they will be uprooted and torn down, destroyed and demolished, rebuilt and firmly planted.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Song of Penitence


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord and Ruler of/the hosts of heav-en,
God of Abra-ham, I-saac, and Ja-cob,
and of all their righteous off-spring:
You made the heavens and the earth,

with all their vast ar-ray.
All things quake with fear at your pres-ence;
they trem-ble be-cause of your power.
But your merci-ful promise is be-yond all meas-ure;

it sur-passes all that our minds can fath-om.
O Lord, you are full of com-pas-sion,
long-suffer-ing, and a-bounding in mer-cy.
You hold _ back your hand;

You do not punish as we de-serve.
In your great good-ness, Lord,
you have promised for-give-ness to sin-ners,
that they may re-pent of their sin and be saved.

And now, O Lord, I bend the knee of my heart,
and make my ap-peal, sure of your gracious good-ness.
I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned,
and I know my wicked-ness only too well.

There-fore I make this prayer to you:
For-give me, Lord, for-give me.
Do not let me perish in my sin,
nor con-demn me to/the depths of/the earth.

For you, O Lord, are the God of those who re-pent,
and in me you will show forth your good-ness.
Un-worthy as I am, you will save me,
in ac-cordance with your great mer-cy,

and I will praise you without ceas-ing
all the days of my life.
For all the powers of heaven sing your praise,
and yours is the glory to ages of age. A-men.


A reading from Mark 3:31-4:9


Then Jesus’ mother and his brothers came. Standing outside, they sent word to him, to summon him. A crowd was sitting around him and they said to him, “Look, your mother and your brothers are outside looking for you.” He answered them and said, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking at those who were sitting around him in a circle, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”

Again he began to teach by the lake. Such a large crowd gathered around him that he got into a boat on the lake and sat there while the whole crowd was on the shore by the lake. He taught them many things in parables, and in his teaching said to them: “Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. Other seed fell on rocky ground where it did not have much soil. It sprang up at once because the soil was not deep. When the sun came up it was scorched, and because it did not have sufficient root, it withered. Other seed fell among the thorns, and they grew up and choked it, and it did not produce grain. But other seed fell on good soil and produced grain, sprouting and growing; some yielded thirty times as much, some sixty, and some a hundred times.” And he said, “Whoever has ears to hear had better listen!”

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.
