Saturday - Easter Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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 119:137-160


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



You are just, O Lord, and your judg-ments are fair.
The rules you im-pose are just and abso-lute-ly re-lia-ble.
My zeal con-sumes me, for my ene-mies for-get your in-struc-tions.
Your word is abso-lute-ly pure, and your serv-ant loves it.

I am in-sig-nifi-cant and de-spised, yet I do not for-get your pre-cepts.
Your jus-tice en-dure, and your law is re-lia-ble.
Dis-tress and hard-ship con-front me,
yet I find de-light in your com-mands.

Your rules re-main just.
Give me in-sight so that I can live.
I cried out with all my heart, An-swer me, O Lord!
I will ob-serve your stat-utes.

I cried out to you,
De-liver me, so that I can keep your rules.
I am up be-fore dawn cry-ing for help.
I find hope in your word.

My eyes an-tici-pate the night-time hours
so that I can medi-tate on your word.
Lis-ten to me be-cause of your loyal love.
O Lord, re-vive me, as you typi-cal-ly do.

Those who are eager to do wrong draw near;
they are far from your law.
You are near, O Lord,
and all your com-mands are re-lia-ble.

I learned long a-go that you or-dained your rules to last.
See my pain and res-cue me.
For I do not for-get your law.
Fight for me and de-fend me.

Re-vive me with your word.
The wicked have no chance for de-liver-ance,
for they do not seek your stat-utes.
Your com-passion is great, O Lord.

Re-vive me, as you typi-cal-ly do.
The ene-mies who chase me are numer-ous.
Yet I do not turn a-side from your rules.
I take note of/the treach-er-ous and de-spise them.

See how I love your pre-cepts.
O Lord, re-vive me with your loyal love.
Your in-struc-tions are total-ly re-lia-ble;
all your just regu-la-tions en-dure.

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 Job 23:1-12


Then Job answered:


“Even today my complaint is still bitter;
his hand is heavy despite my groaning.


O that I knew where I might find him,
that I could come to his place of residence!


I would lay out my case before him
and fill my mouth with arguments.


I would know with what words he would answer me
and understand what he would say to me.


Would he contend with me with great power?
No, he would only pay attention to me.


There an upright person
could present his case before him,
and I would be delivered forever from my judge.


“If I go to the east, he is not there,
and to the west, yet I do not perceive him.


In the north when he is at work,
I do not see him;
when he turns to the south,
I see no trace of him.


But he knows the pathway that I take;
if he tested me, I would come forth like gold.


My feet have followed his steps closely;
I have kept to his way and have not turned aside.


I have not departed from the commands of his lips;
I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my allotted portion.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Glory to God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Glory to God in/the high-est,
and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heaven-ly King,
al-might-y God and Fath-er,

We worship you, we give you thanks,
We praise you for your glo-ry.
Lord Je-sus Christ, only Son of/the Fath-er,
Lord God, _ Lamb of God,

You take/a-way the sin of/the world:
have mer-cy up-on us;
you are seated at/the right hand of/the Fath-er:
re-ceive _ our pray-er.

For you a-lone are/the Ho-ly One,
You a-lone are the Lord,
You a-lone are/the Most High, Je-sus Christ,
with/the Ho-ly Spi-rit, in/the glory of God the Fath-er.


A reading from John 1:42-51


Andrew brought Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon, the son of John. You will be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).

On the next day Jesus wanted to set out for Galilee. He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” (Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the town of Andrew and Peter.) Philip found Nathanael and told him, “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets also wrote about—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” Nathanael replied, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip replied, “Come and see.”

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and exclaimed, “Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit!” Nathanael asked him, “How do you know me?” Jesus replied, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel!” Jesus said to him, “Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” He continued, “I tell all of you the solemn truth—you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - 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.
