Morning Song - Tuesday after Proper 13

Service Date: Tuesday, August 3, 2021


Tuesday - 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.

Tuesday - 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!


Psalm 78:1-39

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Pay at-ten-tion, my peo-ple, to my in-struc-tion!
List-en to/the words I speak!
I will sing a song that im-parts wis-dom;
I will make in-sight-ful obser-va-tions a-bout the past.

What we have heard and learned,
that which our an-cestors have told us,
we will not hide from their de-scend-ants.
We will tell the next gener-a-tion

a-bout the Lord's praise-worthy acts,
a-bout his strength and the a-mazing things he has done.
He es-tab-lished a rule in Ja-cob;
he set up a law in Is-ra-el.

He com-manded our an-ces-tors
to make his deeds known to their de-scend-ants,
so that the next gener-a-tion,
children yet to be born, might know a-bout them.

They will grow up and tell their de-scendants a-bout them.
Then they will place their confi-dence in God.
They will not for-get the works of God,
and they will o-bey his com-mands.

Then they will not be like their an-ces-tors,
who were a stubborn and re-bel-lious gener-a-tion,
a gener-a-tion that was not com-mit-ted
nor _ faithful to their God.

The E-phraim-ites were armed with bows,
but they re-treated in/the day of bat-tle.
They did not keep their cove-nant with God,
and they re-fused to o-bey his law.

They for-got what he had done,
the a-mazing things he had shown them.
He did a-mazing things in/the sight of their an-ces-tors,
in the land of Egypt, in/the re-gion of Zo-an.

He di-vided the sea and led them a-cross it;
he made the water stand in a heap.
He led them with a cloud by day,
and with/the light of a fire all night long.

He broke open rocks in/the wilder-ness,
and gave them e-nough water to fill the depths of/the sea.
He caused streams to flow from/the rock,
and made the water flow like riv-ers.

Yet they con-tinued to sin a-gainst him,
and re-belled a-gainst the Most High in/the de-sert.
They will-fully chal-lenged God
by asking for food to satis-fy their appe-tite.

They in-sulted God, say-ing,
Is God really a-ble to give us food in/the wilder-ness?
Yes, he struck a rock and streams gushed forth.
But can he al-so give us food?

Will he pro-vide meat for his peo-ple?
When the Lord heard this, he was furi-ous.
A fire broke out a-gainst Ja-cob,
and his an-ger flared up a-gainst Is-ra-el,

be-cause they did not have faith in God,
and did not trust his a-bil-ity to de-liver them.
He gave a com-mand to/the clouds a-bove,
and opened the doors in/the sky.

He rained down man-na for them to eat;
he gave them the grain of heav-en.
Man ate the food of/the mighty one.
He sent them more than e-nough to eat.

He brought the east wind through the sky,
and by his strength led forth the south wind.
He rained down meat on them like dust,
birds as numer-ous as the sand on/the sea-shore.

He caused them to fall in/the middle of their camp,
even all a-round their homes.
They ate un-til they were be-yond full;
he gave them what they de-sired.

They were not yet filled up,
their food was still in their mouths,
when the an-ger of God flared up a-gainst them.
He killed some of/the strongest of them;

he brought the young men of Is-ra-el to their knees.
De-spite all this, they con-tin-ued to sin,
and did not trust him to do a-mazing things.
So he caused them to die un-satis-fied and filled with ter-ror.

When he struck them down, they sought his fa-vor;
they turned back and longed for God.
They re-membered that God was their pro-tec-tor,
and that God Most High was their de-liver-er.

But they de-ceived him with their words, and lied to him.
They were not really com-mitted to him,
and they were un-faithful to his cove-nant.
Yet he is com-passion-ate.

He for-gives sin and does not de-stroy.
He often holds back his an-ger, and does not stir up his fu-ry.
He re-membered that they were made of flesh,
and were like wind that blows past and does not re-turn.

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 2 Samuel 7:18-29

King David went in, sat before the Lord, and said, “Who am I, O Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you should have brought me to this point? And you didn’t stop there, O Lord God! You have also spoken about the future of your servant’s family. Is this your usual way of dealing with men, O Sovereign Lord? What more can David say to you? You have given your servant special recognition, O Sovereign Lord! For the sake of your promise and according to your purpose you have done this great thing in order to reveal it to your servant. Therefore you are great, O Sovereign Lord, for there is none like you. There is no God besides you! What we have heard is true. Who is like your people, Israel, a unique nation on the earth? Their God went to claim a nation for himself and to make a name for himself! You did great and awesome acts for your land, before your people whom you delivered for yourself from the Egyptian empire and its gods. You made Israel your very own people for all time. You, O Lord, became their God. So now, O Lord God, make this promise you have made about your servant and his family a permanent reality. Do as you promised, so you may gain lasting fame, as people say, ‘The Lord of Heaven’s Armies is God over Israel!’ The dynasty of your servant David will be established before you, for you, O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, have told your servant, ‘I will build you a dynastic house.’ That is why your servant has had the courage to pray this prayer to you. Now, O Sovereign Lord, you are the true God. May your words prove to be true! You have made this good promise to your servant. Now be willing to bless your servant’s dynasty so that it may stand permanently before you, for you, O Sovereign Lord, have spoken. By your blessing may your servant’s dynasty be blessed from now on into the future!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song of Simeon

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     

Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 8:22-33

Then they came to Bethsaida. They brought a blind man to Jesus and asked him to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and brought him outside of the village. Then he spit on his eyes, placed his hands on his eyes and asked, “Do you see anything?” Regaining his sight he said, “I see people, but they look like trees walking.” Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again. And he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Jesus sent him home, saying, “Do not even go into the village.”

Then Jesus and his disciples went to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said, “John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others, one of the prophets.” He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

Then Jesus began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke openly about this. So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But after turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,

Collect of the Day

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ in his earthly life shared our toil and hallowed our labor: Be present with your people where they work; make those who carry on the industries and commerce of this land responsive to your will; and give to us all a pride in what we do, and a just return for our labor; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.


A Collect for Peace

O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.


Prayer for Mission

Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name.
