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 - 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 137


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




By the rivers of Baby-lon we sit down
and weep when we re-member Zi-on.
On the pop-lars in/her midst we hang our harps,
for there our captors ask us to com-pose songs;

Those who mock us de-mand that we/be hap-py,
say-ing: Sing for us a song a-bout Zi-on!
How can/we sing a song to/the Lord
while cap-tives here in a foreign land?

If I for-get you, O Je-rusa-lem,
may my right hand be crip-pled!
May my tongue stick to/the roof of my mouth,
if I do not re-member you,

if I do not give Je-rusa-lem pri-or-i-ty
o-ver what-ever gives me the most joy.
Re-member, O Lord, what the E-dom-ites did
on the day Je-rusa-lem fell.

They said, Tear it down,
tear it down, right to its very foun-da-tions!
O daugh-ter Baby-lon,
soon to be devas-tat-ed!

How blessed will be the one who re-pays you
for what you dished out to us!
How blessed will be the one who grabs your ba-bies
and smashes them on a rock!

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 144


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




The Lord, our pro-tec-tor,
The Lord de-serves our praise
the one who trains my hands for bat-tle,
and my fin-gers for war,

He who loves me and is my strong-hold,
my ref-uge and my de-liver-er,
my shield and/the one in whom I take shel-ter,
who makes na-tions sub-mit to me.

O Lord, of what/im-port-ance is the human race,
that you should no-tice them?
Of what/im-port-ance is man-kind,
that you should be/con-cerned a-bout them?

Peo-ple are like a va-por,
their days like a shadow that disap-pears.
O Lord, make the sky sink and come down!
Touch the mountains and make them smol-der!

Hurl lightning bolts and scatter them!
Shoot your ar-rows and rout them!
Reach down from a-bove!
Grab me and res-cue me from/the surging wat-er,

From the power of foreign-ers,
who speak lies, and make false prom-is-es.
O God, I will sing/a new song to you!
Ac-compa-nied by a stringed in-stru-ment,

I will sing praises to you,
the one who de-livers kings,
and res-cued Da-vid his serv-ant
from the blood thirst-y sword.

Grab me and res-cue me
from the power of foreign-ers,
who speak false-hoods,
and make false prom-is-es.

Then our sons will be like plants,
that quickly grow to full size.
Our daughters will be like corner pil-lars,
carved like those in a pal-ace.

Our store-houses will be full,
pro-vid-ing all kinds of food.
Our sheep will multi-ply by/the thou-sands
and fill all our pas-tures.

Our cat-tle will be weighted down with pro-duce.
No one will break through our walls,
no one will be taken cap-tive,
and there will be no terri-fied cries in our city squares.

How blessed are the peo-ple
who ex-peri-ence these things!
How blessed are the peo-ple
whose God is the Lord! 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.


Readings



A reading from Micah 7:11-20



It will be a day for rebuilding your walls;
in that day your boundary will be extended.


In that day people will come to you
from Assyria as far as Egypt,
from Egypt as far as the Euphrates River,
from the seacoasts and the mountains.


The earth will become desolate
because of what its inhabitants have done.


Shepherd your people with your rod,
the flock that belongs to you,
the one that lives alone in a thicket,
in the midst of a pastureland.
Allow them to graze in Bashan and Gilead,
as they did in the old days.


“As in the days when you departed from the land of Egypt,
I will show you miraculous deeds.”


Nations will see this and be disappointed by all their strength;
they will put their hands over their mouths
and act as if they were deaf.


They will lick the dust like a snake,
like serpents crawling on the ground.
They will come trembling from their strongholds
to the Lord our God;
they will be terrified of you.


Who is a God like you?
Who forgives sin
and pardons the rebellion
of those who remain among his people?
Who does not stay angry forever,
but delights in showing loyal love?


Who will once again have mercy on us?
Who will conquer our evil deeds?
Who will hurl all our sins into the depths of the sea?


You will be loyal to Jacob
and extend your loyal love to Abraham,
which you promised on oath to our ancestors in ancient times.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw water with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to/the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-member that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

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 20:29-34


As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed them. Two blind men were sitting by the road. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” The crowd scolded them to get them to be quiet. But they shouted even more loudly, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” Jesus stopped, called them, and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened. ” Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
