Invitation



Friday - Daysong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



May God bless us!
May God, our God, bless us!
Then all the ends of/the earth
will give him the honor he de-serves.

May God show us his favor and bless us!
May he smile up-on us!
Then those living on earth will know what you are like;
all na-tions will know how you de-liver your peo-ple.

Let foreign-ers re-joice and cel-e-brate!
For you exe-cute jus-tice a-mong the na-tions,
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

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 19


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




The heavens de-clare the glory of God;
the sky dis-plays his handi-work.
Day after day it speaks out;
night after night it re-veals his great-ness.

There is no ac-tual speech or word,
nor is its voice liter-al-ly heard.
Yet its voice echoes through-out the earth;
its words carry to/the dis-tant ho-ri-zon.

In/the sky he has pitched a tent for/the sun.
Like a bride-groom it e-merg-es from its cham-ber;
like a strong man it en-joys running its course.
It e-merges from/the dis-tant ho-ri-zon,

and goes from one end of/the sky to/the oth-er;
noth-ing can es-cape its heat.
The law of/the Lord is per-fect and pre-serves one's life.
The rules set down by/the Lord are re-lia-ble

and im-part wis-dom to/the inex-pe-ri-enced.
The Lord's pre-cepts are fair and make one joy-ful.
The Lord's com-mands are pure and give in-sight for life.
The com-mands to fear the Lord are right and en-dure for-ev-er.

The judg-ments given by/the Lord
are trust-worthy and ab-so-lute-ly just.
They are of greater val-ue than gold,
than even a great a-mount of pure gold;

they bring greater de-light than hon-ey,
than even the sweet-est hon-ey from/a honey-comb.
Yes, your servant finds moral guid-ance there;
those who o-bey them re-ceive a rich re-ward.

Who can know all his er-rors?
Please do not punish me for sins I am una-ware of.
More-over, keep me from com-mItting fla-grant sins;
do not al-low such sins to con-trol me.

Then I will be blame-less,
and inno-cent of bla-tant re-bel-lion.
May my words and my thoughts be ac-cept-able in your sight, O Lord,
my shelter-ing rock and my re-deem-er.

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 Matthew 22:1-14


Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying:"The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. Again he sent other slaves, saying, 'Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet. 'But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business,while the rest seized his slaves, mistreated them, and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. Then he said to his slaves, 'The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet. 'Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe,and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?' And he was speechless. Then the king said to the attendants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 'For many are called, but few are chosen. "

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord be with you.
And al-so with _ you.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done on earth
as it is in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.

For-give us our sins
as we _ for-give those
who sin a-gainst us.
Save us from/the time of tri-al,

De-liver us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er,
and the glory are yours,
now and for-ever A-men.




Collect of the Day


Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles, "Peace I give to you; my peace I leave with you:" Regard not our sins, but the faith of your Church, and give to us the peace and unity of that heavenly city, where with the Father and the Holy Spirit you live and reign, now and for ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Fridays

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

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.

Amen.
