Invitation



Wednesday - 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.


Wednesday - Jubilate


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Be joy-ful in/the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with glad-ness
and come be-fore his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord him-self is God;

He him-self has made us, and we are his;
we are his people and the sheep of his pas-ture.
Enter his gates with thanks-giv-ing;
go into his courts with praise;

Give thanks to him and call on his Name.
Be-cause the Lord is good;
his mercy is ever last-ing;
and his faithful-ness en-dures from age to age.


Psalms



Psalm 119:145-176


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I cried out with all my heart,
Hear and an-swer me, O Lord!
I will ob-serve your stat-utes.
I have cried out to you;

Please de-liver me,
so that I can keep your rules.
I am up be-fore dawn crying for help.
I find hope in your word.

My eyes an-tici-pate the night-time hours,
so that I can medi-tate on your word.
List-en to me be-cause of your loyal love!
O Lord, re-vive me, as you typi-cal-ly do!

Those who are ea-ger to/do wrong draw near;
they are far from your law.
You are near, O Lord,
and all your com-mands are re-lia-ble.

I learned long a-go
that you or-dained your rules to last.
See my pain and res-cue me!
For I do not for-get your law.

Fight for me and de-fend me!
Re-vive me with your word!
The wicked have no chance for de-liver-ance,
for they do not seek your stat-utes.

Your com-passion is great, O Lord.
Re-vive me, as you typi-cal-ly do!
The ene-mies who chase me are numer-ous.
Yet I do not turn a-side from your rules.

I take note of/the treacher-ous and de-spise them,
be-cause they do not keep your in-struc-tions.
See how I love your pre-cepts!
O Lord, re-vive me with your loyal love!

Your in-struc-tions are total-ly re-lia-ble;
all your just regu-la-tions en-dure.
Rul-ers pur-sue me for no rea-son,
yet I am more a-fraid of dis-o-beying your in-struc-tions.

I re-joice in your in-struc-tions,
like one who finds much plun-der.
I love your law;
I hate and de-spise de-ceit;

Seven times a day I praise you
be-cause of your just regu-la-tions.
Those who love your law are com-plete-ly se-cure;
no-thing causes them to stum-ble.

I hope for your de-liver-ance,
O Lord, I o-bey your com-mands.
I keep your rules;
I love them all great-ly.

I keep your pre-cepts and rules,
for you are a-ware of every-thing I do.
List-en to my cry for help, O Lord!
Give me in-sight by your word!

List-en to my ap-peal for mer-cy!
De-liver me, as you prom-ised.
May praise flow freely from my lips,
for you teach me your stat-utes.

May my tongue sing a-bout your in-struc-tions,
for all your com-mands are just.
May your hand help me,
for I choose to o-bey your pre-cepts.

I long for your de-liver-ance, O Lord;
I find de-light in your law.
May I live and praise you!
May your regu-la-tions help me!

I have wandered off like a lost sheep.
Come looking for your serv-ant,
for I do not for-get your com-mands.
Your com-passion is great, O Lord.

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 Obadiah 15-21



The vision that Obadiah saw.
The Sovereign Lord says this concerning Edom:
We have heard a report from the Lord.
An envoy was sent among the nations, saying,
“Arise! Let us make war against Edom!”


The Lord says, “Look! I will make you a weak nation;
you will be greatly despised!


Your presumptuous heart has deceived you—
you who reside in the safety of the rocky cliffs,
whose home is high in the mountains.
You think to yourself,
‘No one can bring me down to the ground!’


Even if you were to soar high like an eagle,
even if you were to make your nest among the stars,
I can bring you down even from there!” says the Lord.

“If thieves came to rob you during the night,
they would steal only as much as they wanted.
If grape pickers came to harvest your vineyards,
they would leave some behind for the poor.
But you will be totally destroyed!


How the people of Esau will be thoroughly plundered!
Their hidden valuables will be ransacked!


All your allies will force you from your homeland!
Your treaty partners will deceive you and overpower you.
Your trusted friends will set an ambush for you
that will take you by surprise!

“At that time,” the Lord says,
“I will destroy the wise sages of Edom,
the advisers from Esau’s mountain.


Your warriors will be shattered, O Teman,
so that everyone will be destroyed from Esau’s mountain!


“Because you violently slaughtered your relatives, the people of Jacob,
shame will cover you, and you will be destroyed forever.


You stood aloof while strangers took his army captive
and foreigners advanced to his gates.
When they cast lots over Jerusalem,
you behaved as though you were in league with them.


You should not have gloated when your relatives suffered calamity.
You should not have rejoiced over the people of Judah when they were destroyed.
You should not have boasted when they suffered adversity.


You should not have entered the city of my people when they experienced distress.
You should not have joined in gloating over their misfortune when they suffered distress.
You should not have looted their wealth when they endured distress.


You should not have stood at the fork in the road to slaughter those trying to escape.
You should not have captured their refugees when they suffered adversity.


“For the day of the Lord is approaching for all the nations!
Just as you have done, so it will be done to you.
You will get exactly what your deeds deserve.


For just as you have drunk on my holy mountain,
so all the nations will drink continually.
They will drink, and they will gulp down;
they will be as though they had never been.


But on Mount Zion there will be a remnant of those who escape,
and it will be a holy place once again.
The descendants of Jacob will conquer
those who had conquered them.


The descendants of Jacob will be a fire
and the descendants of Joseph a flame.
The descendants of Esau will be like stubble.
They will burn them up and devour them.
There will not be a single survivor of the descendants of Esau!”
Indeed, the Lord has spoken it.


The people of the Negev will take possession of Esau’s mountain,
and the people of the foothills will take
possession of the land of the Philistines.
They will also take possession of the territory of Ephraim and the territory of Samaria,
and the people of Benjamin will take possession of Gilead.


The exiles of this fortress of the people of Israel
will take possession of what belongs to
the people of Canaan, as far as Zarephath,
and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
will take possession of the towns of the Negev.


Those who have been delivered will go up on Mount Zion
in order to rule over Esau’s mountain.
Then the Lord will reign as King!

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Glory to God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Glory to God in/the high-est,
and peace to his people on earth.
Lord God, heaven-ly King,
al-might-y God and Fath-er,

We worship you, we give you thanks,
We praise you for your glo-ry.
Lord Je-sus Christ, only Son of/the Fath-er,
Lord God, _ Lamb of God,

You take/a-way the sin of/the world:
have mer-cy up-on us;
you are seated at/the right hand of/the Fath-er:
re-ceive _ our pray-er.

For you a-lone are/the Ho-ly One,
You a-lone are the Lord,
You a-lone are/the Most High, Je-sus Christ,
with/the Ho-ly Spi-rit, in/the glory of God the Fath-er.


A reading from Matthew 19:23-30


Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it will be hard for a rich person to enter the kingdom of heaven! Again I say, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter into the kingdom of God.” The disciples were greatly astonished when they heard this and said, “Then who can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and replied, “This is impossible for mere humans, but for God all things are possible.” Then Peter said to him, “Look, we have left everything to follow you! What then will there be for us?” Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth: In the age when all things are renewed, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. And whoever has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Wednesday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Seek the Lord while he wills to/be found;
call up-on him when he draws near.
Let the wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-passion,
Let then re-turn to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from/the heav-ens
and re-turns not a-gain,
but wat-ers the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giving a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread and fruit for eat-ing,

So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not re-turn to me emp-ty;
But it will ac-com-plish that which I have pur-posed,
and prosper in that for which I sent it.

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.
