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 nations will know how you de-liver your peo-ple.

Let foreign-ers re-joice and cele-brate!
For you exe-cute justice 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 119:1-24

How blessed are those
whose ac-tions are blame-less,
who o-bey the law of/the Lord.
How blessed are those who ob-serve his rules,

and seek him with all their hearts,
who, more-over, do no wrong,
but follow in his foot-steps.
You de-mand that your pre-cepts be careful-ly kept.

If only I were pre-dis-posed
to keep all your stat-utes!
Then I would not be a-shamed,
if I were focused on all your com-mands.

I will give you sin-cere thanks,
when I learn your just regu-la-tions.
I will keep your stat-utes.
Do not com-pletely a-ban-don me!

How can a young person main-tain a pure life?
By guarding it ac-cording to your in-struc-tions!
With all my heart I seek you.
Do not al-low me to stray from your com-mands!

In my heart I store up your words,
so I might not sin a-gainst you.
You de-serve praise, O Lord!
Teach me all your stat-utes!

With my lips I pro-claim
all the regu-lations you have re-vealed.
I re-joice in/the life-style pre-scribed by your rules
as if they were riches of all kinds.

I will medi-tate on your pre-cepts
and focus on your be-hav-ior.
I find de-light in your stat-utes;
I do not for-get your in-struc-tions.

Be kind to your serv-ant!
Then I will live and keep your in-struc-tions.
Open my eyes so I can tru-ly see
the marvel-ous things in your law!

I am a resi-dent foreign-er in this land.
Do not hide your com-mands from me!
I desper-ate-ly long to know
your regu-lations at all times.

You repri-mand arro-gant peo-ple.
Those who stray from your com-mands are doomed.
Spare me shame and hu-mili-a-tion,
for I ob-serve your rules.

Though rulers plot and slan-der me,
your servant medi-tates on your stat-utes.
Yes, I find de-light in your rules;
Your law gives me guid-ance.

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 John 8:12-19


Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life. "Then the Pharisees said to him, "You are testifying on your own behalf; your testimony is not valid. "Jesus answered, "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid because I know where I have come from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. You judge by human standards; I judge no one. Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is valid; for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father who sent me. In your law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is valid. I testify on my own behalf, and the Father who sent me testifies on my behalf. "Then they said to him, "Where is your Father? " Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also. "

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 Father 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 daily 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 power,
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.
