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.

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!


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 2 Kings 11:1-20


When Athaliah, the mother of Ahaziah, saw that her son was dead, she was determined to destroy the entire royal line. So Jehosheba, the daughter of King Jehoram and sister of Ahaziah, took Ahaziah’s son Joash and stole him away from the rest of the royal descendants who were to be executed. She hid him and his nurse in the room where the bed covers were stored. So he was hidden from Athaliah and escaped execution. He hid out with his nurse in the Lord’s temple for six years, while Athaliah was ruling over the land.

In the seventh year Jehoiada summoned the officers of the units of hundreds of the Carians and the royal bodyguard. He met with them in the Lord’s temple. He made an agreement with them and made them swear an oath of allegiance in the Lord’s temple. Then he showed them the king’s son. He ordered them, “This is what you must do. One third of the unit that is on duty during the Sabbath will guard the royal palace. Another third of you will be stationed at the Foundation Gate. Still another third of you will be stationed at the gate behind the royal guard. You will take turns guarding the palace. The two units who are off duty on the Sabbath will guard the Lord’s temple and protect the king. You must surround the king. Each of you must hold his weapon in his hand. Whoever approaches your ranks must be killed. You must accompany the king wherever he goes.”

The officers of the units of hundreds did just as Jehoiada the priest ordered. Each of them took his men, those who were on duty during the Sabbath as well as those who were off duty on the Sabbath, and reported to Jehoiada the priest. The priest gave to the officers of the units of hundreds King David’s spears and the shields that were kept in the Lord’s temple. The royal bodyguard took their stations, each holding his weapon in his hand. They lined up from the south side of the temple to the north side and stood near the altar and the temple, surrounding the king. Jehoiada led out the king’s son and placed on him the crown and the royal insignia. They proclaimed him king and poured olive oil on his head. They clapped their hands and cried out, “Long live the king!”

When Athaliah heard the royal guard shout, she joined the crowd at the Lord’s temple. Then she saw the king standing by the pillar, according to custom. The officers stood beside the king with their trumpets, and all the people of the land were celebrating and blowing trumpets. Athaliah tore her clothes and screamed, “Treason, treason!” Jehoiada the priest ordered the officers of the units of hundreds, who were in charge of the army, “Bring her outside the temple to the guards. Put to death by the sword anyone who follows her.” The priest gave this order because he had decided she should not be executed in the Lord’s temple. They seized her and took her into the precincts of the royal palace through the horses’ entrance. There she was executed.

Jehoiada then drew up a covenant between the Lord and the king and people, stipulating that they should be loyal to the Lord. All the people of the land went and demolished the temple of Baal. They smashed its altars and idols to bits. They killed Mattan the priest of Baal in front of the altar. Jehoiada the priest then placed guards at the Lord’s temple. He took the officers of the units of hundreds, the Carians, the royal bodyguard, and all the people of the land, and together they led the king down from the Lord’s temple. They entered the royal palace through the Gate of the Royal Bodyguard, and the king sat down on the royal throne. All the people of the land celebrated, for the city had rest now that they had killed Athaliah with the sword in the royal palace.

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 6:19-24


“Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and devouring insect destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and devouring insect do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If then your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is diseased, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

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.
