Saturday - Easter Invitation

Alle-lu-ia! Christ is ris-en.
The Lord is risen in-deed. Alle-lu-ia!
O give thanks to/the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.

Thus says the high and lofty One
who in-habits e-terni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in/the high and holy place

and al-so with/the one who has a con-trite and hum-ble spi-rit,
to re-vive the spirit of/the hum-ble and the heart of/the con-trite.
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 - Christ Our Passover


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Alle-lu-ia! Christ our Pass-over has been sacri-ficed for us;
there-fore let us keep the feast,
Not with old leaven, the leaven of mal-ice and e-vil,
but with/the un-leavened bread of sin-ceri-ty and truth. Alle-lu-ia!

Christ being raised from/the dead will never die a-gain;
death no long-er has do-minion over him.
The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God.

So al-so con-sider your-selves dead to sin,
and a-live to God in Je-sus Christ our Lord. Alle-lu-ia!
Christ has been raised from/the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen a-sleep.

For since by a man came death,
by a man has come al-so the resur-rec-tion of/the dead.
For as in A-dam all die,
so in Christ shall all be made a-live. Alle-lu-ia!


Psalms



Psalm 30


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I will praise you, O Lord, for you lifted me up,
and did not al-low my ene-mies to gloat over me.
O Lord my God, I cried out/to you and you healed me.
O Lord, you pulled me up from She-ol;

you res-cued me from a-mong those de-scending into the grave.
Sing to/the Lord, you faithful follow-ers of his;
give thanks to his holy name.
For his an-ger lasts only a brief mo-ment,

and his good favor re-stores one's life.
One may ex-peri-ence sor-row during the night,
but joy ar-rives in/the morn-ing.
In my self-confi-dence I said, I will never be shak-en.

O Lord, in your good favor you made me se-cure.
Then you re-ject-ed me and I was terri-fied.
To you, O Lord, I cried out;
I begged the Lord for mer-cy:

What profit is there in tak-ing my life,
in my de-scending into the Pit?
Can the dust of/the grave praise you?
Can it de-clare your loy-al-ty?

Hear, O Lord, and have mer-cy on me!
O Lord my God, de-liver me!
Then you turned my la-ment into danc-ing;
you re-moved my sack-cloth

You covered me with joy.
So now my heart will sing to you
and I will not be si-lent;
O Lord my God, I will al-ways give thanks to you.

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.


Readings



A reading from Daniel 6:16-28


So the king gave the order, and Daniel was brought and thrown into a den of lions. The king consoled Daniel by saying, “Your God whom you continually serve will rescue you!” Then a stone was brought and placed over the opening to the den. The king sealed it with his signet ring and with those of his nobles so that nothing could be changed with regard to Daniel. Then the king departed to his palace. But he spent the night without eating, and no diversions were brought to him. He was unable to sleep.

In the morning, at the earliest sign of daylight, the king got up and rushed to the lions’ den. As he approached the den, he called out to Daniel in a worried voice, “Daniel, servant of the living God, was your God whom you continually serve able to rescue you from the lions?”

Then Daniel spoke to the king, “O king, live forever! My God sent his angel and closed the lions’ mouths so that they have not harmed me because I was found to be innocent before him. Nor have I done any harm to you, O king.”

Then the king was delighted and gave an order to haul Daniel up from the den. So Daniel was hauled up out of the den. He had no injury of any kind because he had trusted in his God. The king gave another order, and those men who had maliciously accused Daniel were brought and thrown into the lions’ den—they, their children, and their wives. They did not even reach the bottom of the den before the lions overpowered them and crushed all their bones.

Then King Darius wrote to all the peoples, nations, and language groups who were living in all the land: “Peace and prosperity! I have issued an edict that throughout all the dominion of my kingdom people are to revere and fear the God of Daniel.
“For he is the living God;
he endures forever.
His kingdom will not be destroyed;
his authority is forever.


He rescues and delivers
and performs signs and wonders
in the heavens and on the earth.
He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions!”

So this Daniel prospered during the reign of Darius and the reign of Cyrus the Persian.

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.


A reading from Luke 5:27-39


After this, Jesus went out and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax booth. “Follow me,” he said to him. And he got up and followed him, leaving everything behind.

Then Levi gave a great banquet in his house for Jesus, and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others sitting at the table with them. But the Pharisees and their experts in the law complained to his disciples, saying, “Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” Jesus answered them, “Those who are well don’t need a physician, but those who are sick do. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.”

Then they said to him, “John’s disciples frequently fast and pray, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours continue to eat and drink.” So Jesus said to them, “You cannot make the wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them, can you? But those days are coming, and when the bridegroom is taken from them, at that time they will fast.” He also told them a parable: “No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old garment. If he does, he will have torn the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. Instead new wine must be poured into new wineskins. No one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is good enough.’”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
