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 55


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




List-en, O God, to my prayer!
Don't ig-nore my ap-peal for mer-cy!
Pay at-ten-tion to me and an-swer me!
I am so up-set and dis-tressed,

I am be-side my-self,
be-cause of what the ene-my says,
and be-cause of how the wicked pressure me,
for they hurl trou-ble down up-on me

and angri-ly at-tack me.
My heart beats vio-lent-ly with-in me;
the hor-rors of death over-come me.
Fear and pan-ic over-pow-er me;

Ter-ror over-whelms me.
I say, I wish I had wings like/a dove!
I would fly a-way and settle in a safe place!
Look, I will es-cape to a dis-tant place;

I will stay in/the wil-der-ness.
I will hurry off to a place that is safe
from the strong wind and the gale.
Con-fuse them, O Lord! Frus-trate their plan!

For I see vio-lence and con-flict in/the cit-y.
Day and night they walk a-round on its walls,
while wicked-ness and de-struc-tion are with-in it.
Dis-as-ter is with-in it;

Vio-lence and de-ceit don't de-part from its pub-lic square.
In-deed, it is not an ene-my who in-sults me,
or else I could bear it;
it isn't one who hates me who arro-gant-ly taunts me,

or else I could hide from him.
But it is you, a man like me,
my close friend in whom I con-fid-ed.
We would share person-al thoughts with each oth-er;

In God's tem-ple we would walk to-gether a-mong the crowd.
May death de-stroy them! May they go down a-live into She-ol!
For evil is in their dwelling place and in their midst.
As for me, I will call out/to God,

and the Lord will de-liver me.
During the evening, morning, and noon-time
I will la-ment and moan, and he will hear me.
He will res-cue me and pro-tect me from those who at-tack me,

Even though they greatly out-number me.
God, the one who has reigned as king from long a-go,
will hear and hu-mili-ate them.
They re-fuse to change, and do not fear God.

He at-tacks his friends;
he breaks his solemn prom-is-es to them.
His words are as smooth as but-ter,
but he harbors ani-mos-ity in his heart.

His words seem softer than oil,
but they are really like sharp swords.
Throw your burden up-on the Lord,
and he will sus-tain you.

He will never al-low the godly to be shak-en.
But you, O God, will bring them down to/the deep Pit.
Vio-lent and de-ceitful people will not live even half a nor-mal life span.
But as for me, I trust in 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.


Readings



A reading from 2 Samuel 1:1-16


After the death of Saul, when David had returned from defeating the Amalekites, he stayed at Ziklag for two days. On the third day a man arrived from the camp of Saul with his clothes torn and dirt on his head. When he approached David, the man threw himself to the ground.

David asked him, “Where are you coming from?” He replied, “I have escaped from the camp of Israel.” David inquired, “How were things going? Tell me!” He replied, “The people fled from the battle and many of them fell dead. Even Saul and his son Jonathan are dead!” David said to the young man who was telling him this, “How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?” The young man said, “I just happened to be on Mount Gilboa and came across Saul leaning on his spear for support. The chariots and leaders of the horsemen were in hot pursuit of him. When he turned around and saw me, he called out to me. I answered, ‘Here I am!’ He asked me, ‘Who are you?’ I told him, ‘I’m an Amalekite.’ He said to me, ‘Stand over me and finish me off! I’m very dizzy, even though I’m still alive.’ So I stood over him and put him to death, since I knew that he couldn’t live in such a condition. Then I took the crown which was on his head and the bracelet which was on his arm. I have brought them here to my lord.”

David then grabbed his own clothes and tore them, as did all the men who were with him. They lamented and wept and fasted until evening because Saul, his son Jonathan, the Lord’s army, and the house of Israel had fallen by the sword.

David said to the young man who told this to him, “Where are you from?” He replied, “I am an Amalekite, the son of a resident foreigner.” David replied to him, “How is it that you were not afraid to reach out your hand to destroy the Lord’s anointed?” Then David called one of the soldiers and said, “Come here and strike him down!” So he struck him down, and he died. David said to him, “Your blood be on your own head! Your own mouth has testified against you, saying ‘I have put the Lord’s anointed to death.’”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Song of the Redeemed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing human under-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of righteous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ag-es.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name?
for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and holy works
have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, 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.


A reading from Mark 6:1-13


Now Jesus left that place and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue. Many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did he get these ideas? And what is this wisdom that has been given to him? What are these miracles that are done through his hands? Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And aren’t his sisters here with us?” And so they took offense at him. Then Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown, and among his relatives, and in his own house.” He was not able to do a miracle there, except to lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. And he was amazed because of their unbelief. Then he went around among the villages and taught.

Jesus called the Twelve and began to send them out two by two. He gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belts— and to put on sandals but not to wear two tunics. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the area. If a place will not welcome you or listen to you, as you go out from there, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them.” So they went out and preached that all should repent. They cast out many demons and anointed many sick people with olive oil and healed them.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

Through his holy proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our ene-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to wor-ship him without fear,

ho-ly and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In/the tender com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.
