Invitation



Saturday - Pentecost Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord is in his holy tem-ple;
let all the earth keep silence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to/the house of/the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the medi-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cepta-ble in your sight, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

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

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your holy hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to/the Lord, and call on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
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 87


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord's city is in/the holy hills.
The Lord loves the gates of Zi-on
more than all/the dwelling places of Ja-cob.
and the Most High makes her se-cure.

Peo-ple say wonder-ful things a-bout you, O city of God.
and the Most High makes her se-cure.
I men-tion Ra-hab and Baby-lon to my follow-ers.
Here are Phi-listi-a and Tyre, a-long with Ethi-o-pi-a.

It/is said of them, This one was born there.
But it/is said of Zi-on's res-i-dents,
Each one of these was born in her,
and the Most High makes her se-cure.

The Lord writes in/the census book of/the na-tions,
This one was born in Zi-on.
As for/the sing-ers, as well/as the pip-ers
all of them sing with-in your walls.

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 90


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord, you have been our pro-tector through all gener-a-tions!
Even be-fore the mountains came into ex-ist-ence,
or you brought the world into be-ing,
you were the e-ter-nal God.

You make man-kind re-turn to/the dust,
and say, Re-turn, O peo-ple!
Yes, in your eyes a thousand years are like yester-day that quickly pass-es,
or like one of/the di-vi-sions of/the night-time.

You bring their lives to/an end and they fall a-sleep.
In/the morning they are like the grass that sprouts up;
in the morning it glis-tens and sprouts up;
at eve-ning time it withers and dries up.

Yes, we are con-sumed by your an-ger;
we are terri-fied by your wrath.
You are a-ware of our sins;
you even know a-bout our hid-den sins.

Yes, through-out all our days we ex-pe-rience your raging fu-ry;
the years of our lives pass quickly, like a sigh.
The days of our lives add up to seven-ty years,
or eight-y, if one is e-special-ly strong.

But even one's best years are marred by trou-ble
and sor-rowed by op-pres-sion.
Yes, they pass quickly and we fly a-way.
Who can really fath-om the in-ten-sity of your an-ger?

Your raging fu-ry caus-es people to fear you.
So teach us to con-sider our mor-tal-i-ty,
so that we might live wise-ly.
Turn back toward us, O Lord!

How long must this suffer-ing last?
Have pit-y on your serv-ants!
Satis-fy us in/the morn-ing with your loyal love!
Then we will shout for joy and be happy all our days!

Make us happy in pro-portion to/the days you have af-flicted us,
in pro-portion to/the years we have ex-pe-rienced trou-ble!
May your serv-ants see your work!
May their sons see your maj-es-ty!

May our sove-reign God ex-tend his favor to us!
Make our en-deav-ors suc-cess-ful!
Yes, make them suc-cess-ful!
O Lord, you have been our pro-tec-tor.

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 1 Maccabees 2:1-28


In those days Mattathias son of John son of Simeon, a priest of the family of Joarib, moved from Jerusalem and settled in Modein.He had five sons, John surnamed Gaddi, Simon called Thassi, Judas called Maccabeus, Eleazar called Avaran, and Jonathan called Apphus. He saw the blasphemies being committed in Judah and Jerusalem, and said,

Alas! Why was I born to see this,the ruin of my people, the ruin of the holy city,and to live there when it was given over to the enemy,the sanctuary given over to aliens?Her temple has become like a person without honor;her glorious vessels have been carried into exile.Her infants have been killed in her streets,her youths by the sword of the foe.What nation has not inherited her palacesand has not seized her spoils?All her adornment has been taken away;no longer free, she has become a slave.And see, our holy place, our beauty,and our glory have been laid waste;the Gentiles have profaned them.Why should we live any longer?

Then Mattathias and his sons tore their clothes, put on sackcloth, and mourned greatly.

The kings officers who were enforcing the apostasy came to the town of Modein to make them offer sacrifice. Many from Israel came to them; and Mattathias and his sons were assembled. Then the kings officers spoke to Mattathias as follows: You are a leader, honored and great in this town, and supported by sons and brothers. Now be the first to come and do what the king commands, as all the Gentiles and the people of Judah and those that are left in Jerusalem have done. Then you and your sons will be numbered among the Friends of the king, and you and your sons will be honored with silver and gold and many gifts.

But Mattathias answered and said in a loud voice: Even if all the nations that live under the rule of the king obey him, and have chosen to obey his commandments, every one of them abandoning the religion of their ancestors, I and my sons and my brothers will continue to live by the covenant of our ancestors. Far be it from us to desert the law and the ordinances. We will not obey the kings words by turning aside from our religion to the right hand or to the left.

When he had finished speaking these words, a Jew came forward in the sight of all to offer sacrifice on the altar in Modein, according to the kings command. When Mattathias saw it, he burned with zeal and his heart was stirred. He gave vent to righteous anger;he ran and killed him on the altar. At the same time he killed the kings officer who was forcing them to sacrifice, and he tore down the altar. Thus he burned with zeal for the law, just as Phinehas did against Zimri son of Salu.

Then Mattathias cried out in the town with a loud voice, saying: Let every one who is zealous for the law and supports the covenant come out with me! Then he and his sons fled to the hills and left all that they had in the town.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Saturday - 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 Matthew 16:21-28


From that time on Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: “God forbid, Lord! This must not happen to you!” But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s. ”Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me will find it. For what does it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life? Or what can a person give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. I tell you the truth, there are some standing here who will not experience death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - 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.
