Invitation



Wednesday - 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.


Wednesday - 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 32


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




How blessed is the one
whose re-bel-lious acts are for-giv-en,
and whose sin is par-doned!
How blessed is the one whose wrong-doing the Lord does not punish,

in whose spirit there is no de-ceit.
When I re-fused to con-fess my sin,
my whole body wasted a-way,
while I groaned in pain all day long.

For day and night you tor-mented me;
you tried to de-stroy me in/the in-tense heat of sum-mer.
Then I con-fessed my sin;
I no longer covered up my wrong-do-ing.

I said, I will con-fess my re-bel-lious acts to/the Lord.
And then you for-gave my sins.
So every one of your faithful follow-ers should pray to you
while there is a window of op-por-tuni-ty.

Certain-ly when the surging waters rise,
They will not reach to them.
You are my hid-ing place;
you pro-tect me from all dis-tress.

You sur-round me with shouts of joy
from those cele-brat-ing de-liver-ance.
I will in-struct and teach you
a-bout how you should live.

I will ad-vise you as I look you in/the eye.
Do not be like an unin-telli-gent horse or mule,
which will not o-bey you
un-less they are con-trolled by a bridle and bit.

An evil person suffers much pain,
but the Lord's faithful-ness over-whelms the one who trusts in him.
Re-joice in/the Lord and be happy, you who are god-ly!
Shout for joy, all you who are moral-ly up-right!

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 143


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my plea for help!
Be-cause of your faithful-ness and jus-tice, an-swer me!
Do not sit in judg-ment on your serv-ant,

for no one a-live is in-no-cent be-fore you.
Cer-tain-ly my ene-mies chase me.
They smash me into the ground.
They force me to live in dark re-gions,

like those who have been dead for ag-es.
My strength de-parts from me;
I am ab-so-lute-ly shocked.
I re-call the old days;

I medi-tate on all you have done;
I re-flect on your ac-com-plish-ments.
I spread my hands out to you in prayer;
my soul thirsts for you in a parched land.

An-swer me quick-ly, Lord!
My strength is fad-ing a-way.
Do not re-ject me,
or I will join those de-scend-ing into the grave.

May I hear a-bout your loyal love in/the morn-ing,
for I trust in you, my Lord.
Show me the way I should go,
be-cause I long for you.

Res-cue me from my ene-mies, O Lord!
I run to you for pro-tec-tion.
Teach me to do what pleas-es you,
for you, O Lord, are my God.

May your kind pres-ence lead me into a lev-el land.
O Lord, for/the sake of your repu-ta-tion, re-vive me!
Be-cause of your jus-tice,
res-cue me from all my trou-ble!

As a dem-on-stra-tion of your loyal love,
de-stroy _ my ene-mies!
An-ni-hi-late all who threat-en my life,
for I am your serv-ant.

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 Jonah 3:1-4:11


The Lord’s message came to Jonah a second time, “Go immediately to Nineveh, that large city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.” So Jonah went immediately to Nineveh, in keeping with the Lord’s message. Now Nineveh was an enormous city—it required three days to walk through it! Jonah began to enter the city by going one day’s walk, announcing, “At the end of 40 days, Nineveh will be overthrown!”

The people of Nineveh believed in God, and they declared a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest to the least of them. When the news reached the king of Nineveh, he got up from his throne, took off his royal robe, put on sackcloth, and sat on ashes. He issued a proclamation and said, “In Nineveh, by the decree of the king and his nobles: No human or animal, cattle or sheep, is to taste anything; they must not eat and they must not drink water. Every person and animal must put on sackcloth and must cry earnestly to God, and everyone must turn from their evil way of living and from the violence that they do. Who knows? Perhaps God might be willing to change his mind and relent and turn from his fierce anger so that we might not die.” When God saw their actions—that they turned from their evil way of living—God relented concerning the judgment he had threatened them with and did not destroy them.

This displeased Jonah terribly and he became very angry. He prayed to the Lord and said, “Oh, Lord, this is just what I thought would happen when I was in my own country. This is what I tried to prevent by attempting to escape to Tarshish, because I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in mercy, and one who relents concerning threatened judgment. So now, Lord, kill me instead, because I would rather die than live!” The Lord said, “Are you really so very angry?”

Jonah left the city and sat down east of it. He made a shelter for himself there and sat down under it in the shade to see what would happen to the city. The Lord God appointed a little plant and caused it to grow up over Jonah to be a shade over his head to rescue him from his misery. Now Jonah was very delighted about the little plant.

So God sent a worm at dawn the next day, and it attacked the little plant so that it dried up. When the sun began to shine, God sent a hot east wind. So the sun beat down on Jonah’s head, and he grew faint. So he despaired of life and said, “I would rather die than live!”

God said to Jonah, “Are you really so very angry about the little plant?” And he said, “I am as angry as I could possibly be!” The Lord said, “You were upset about this little plant, something for which you did not work, nor did you do anything to make it grow. It grew up overnight and died the next day. Should I not be more concerned about Nineveh, this enormous city? There are more than 120,000 people in it who do not know right from wrong, as well as many animals.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



My soul pro-claims the greatness of/the Lord,
my spirit re-joices in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with favor on his lowly serv-ant.
From this day all gener-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and _ holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gener-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the low-ly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent/a-way emp-ty.
He has come to/the help of his servant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-membered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to Abra-ham and his children for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the greatness of/the Lord,
my spirit re-joices in God my Sav-ior;

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 Luke 18:9-14


Jesus also told this parable to some who were confident that they were righteous and looked down on everyone else. “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed about himself like this: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: extortionists, unrighteous people, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of everything I get.’ The tax collector, however, stood far off and would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, be merciful to me, sinner that I am!’ I tell you that this man went down to his home justified rather than the Pharisee. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - 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.
