Invitation



Friday - 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.


Friday - 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!


Psalms



Psalm 102


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Lord. O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my cry for help!
Do not ig-nore me in/my time of trou-ble!
List-en to me! When I call out to you, quickly an-swer me!

For my days go up in smoke,
and my bones are charred like a fire-place.
My heart is parched and withered like grass,
for I am un-able to eat food.

Be-cause of/the anx-ie-ty that makes me groan,
my bones pro-trude from my skin.
I am like an owl in/the wilder-ness;
I am like a screech owl a-mong the ruins.

I stay a-wake; I am like a soli-tar-y bird on/a roof.
All day long my ene-mies taunt me;
those who mock me use my name in their curs-es.
For I eat ashes as if they were bread.

I mix my drink with my tears,
be-cause of your an-ger and raging fu-ry.
In-deed, you pick me up and throw me a-way.
My days are coming to an end.

I am withered like grass.
But you, O Lord, rule for-ev-er,
and your repu-ta-tion en-dures.
You will rise up and have com-passion on Zi-on.

For it is time to have mer-cy on her,
for the ap-pointed time has come.
In-deed, your servants take de-light in her stones,
and feel com-passion for/the dust of her ruins.

The na-tions will re-spect the repu-ta-tion of/the Lord,
and all/the kings of/the earth will re-spect his splen-dor,
when the Lord re-builds Zi-on, and re-veals his splen-dor,
when he re-sponds to/the prayer of/the des-ti-tute.

He does not re-ject their re-quest.
The ac-count of his inter-ven-tion will be re-corded for future gener-a-tions;
peo-ple yet to/be born will praise the Lord.
For he will look down from his sanc-tu-ar-y a-bove;

From heaven the Lord will look toward earth,
in order to hear the painful cries of/the prison-er,
and to set free those con-demned to die,
so they may pro-claim the name of/the Lord in Zi-on,

And praise him in Je-ru-sa-lem,
when the na-tions gath-er to-geth-er,
and the king-doms pay trib-ute to/the Lord.
He has taken a-way my strength in/the middle of life;

He has cut short my days. I say,
O my God, please do/not take me a-way in/the middle of my life!
You en-dure through all gener-a-tions.
In ear-lier times you es-tab-lished the earth;

The skies are your handi-work.
They will perish, but you will en-dure.
They will wear out like a gar-ment;
like clothes you will re-move them and they will disap-pear.

But you re-main;
your years do not come to/an end.
The children of your ser-vants will settle down here,
and their de-scen-dants will live se-cure-ly in your pres-ence.

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 4:36-59


Then Judas and his brothers said, See, our enemies are crushed;let us go up to cleanse the sanctuary and dedicate it.So all the army assembled and went up to Mount Zion.There they saw the sanctuary desolate, the altar profaned, and the gates burned.In the courts they saw bushes sprung up as in a thicket, or as on one of the mountains.They saw also the chambers of the priests in ruins.Then they tore their clothes and mourned with great lamentation;they sprinkled themselves with ashes and fell face down on the ground.And when the signal was given with the trumpets, they cried out to Heaven.

Then Judas detailed men to fight against those in the citadel until he had cleansed the sanctuary.He chose blameless priests devoted to the law, and they cleansed the sanctuary and removed the defiled stones to an unclean place.They deliberated what to do about the altar of burnt offering, which had been profaned.And they thought it best to tear it down, so that it would not be a lasting shame to them that the Gentiles had defiled it.So they tore down the altar, and stored the stones in a convenient place on the temple hill until a prophet should come to tell what to do with them.Then they took unhewn stones, as the law directs, and built a new altar like the former one.They also rebuilt the sanctuary and the interior of the temple, and consecrated the courts.They made new holy vessels, and brought the lampstand, the altar of incense, and the table into the temple.Then they offered incense on the altar and lit the lamps on the lampstand, and these gave light in the temple.They placed the bread on the table and hung up the curtains.Thus they finished all the work they had undertaken.

Early in the morning on the twentyfifth day of the ninth month, which is the month of Chislev, in the one hundred fortyeighth year, they rose and offered sacrifice, as the law directs, on the new altar of burnt offering that they had built.At the very season and on the very day that the Gentiles had profaned it, it was dedicated with songs and harps and lutes and cymbals.All the people fell on their faces and worshiped and blessed Heaven, who had prospered them.So they celebrated the dedication of the altar for eight days, and joyfully offered burnt offerings;they offered a sacrifice of wellbeing and a thanksgiving offering.They decorated the front of the temple with golden crowns and small shields;they restored the gates and the chambers for the priests, and fitted them with doors.There was very great joy among the people, and the disgrace brought by the Gentiles was removed.

Then Judas and his brothers and all the assembly of Israel determined that every year at that season the days of dedication of the altar should be observed with joy and gladness for eight days, beginning with the twentyfifth day of the month of Chislev.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - 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 Matthew 18:10-20


“See that you do not disdain one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. What do you think? If someone owns a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go look for the one that went astray? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he will rejoice more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not go astray. In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that one of these little ones be lost.

“If your brother sins, go and show him his fault when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have regained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you, so that at the testimony of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. If he refuses to listen to the church, treat him like a Gentile or a tax collector.

“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will have been released in heaven. Again, I tell you the truth, if two of you on earth agree about whatever you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - 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.

Collects of the Day


O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and 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.
