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 119:121-144

I do what is fair and right,
Do not a-bandon me to my op-pres-sors!
Guar-an-tee the wel-fare of your serv-ant!
Do not let the arro-gant op-press me!

My eyes grow tired as I wait for your de-liver-ance,
for your re-lia-ble prom-ise to be ful-filled.
Show your serv-ant your loyal love!
Teach me your stat-utes! I am your serv-ant.

Give me in-sight, so that I can under-stand your rules.
It is time for/the Lord to act for they break your law!
For this rea-son
I love your com-mands more than gold, even purest gold.

For this reason I care-fully follow all your pre-cepts.
I hate all de-ceitful ac-tions.
Your rules are marvel-ous. Therefore I ob-serve them.
Your in-struc-tions are a door-way through which light shines.

They give in-sight to/the un-trained.
I open my mouth and pant, be-cause I long for your com-mands.
Turn toward me and ex-tend mer-cy to me,
as you typi-cal-ly do to your loyal follow-ers.

Di-rect my steps by your word!
Do not let any sin domi-nate me!
De-liver me from op-pres-sive men,
so that I can keep your pre-cepts.

Smile on your serv-ant!
Teach me all your stat-utes!
Tears stream down from my eyes,
be-cause people do not keep your law.

You are just, O Lord,
and your judg-ments are fair.
The rules you im-pose are just,
they are ab-so-lute-ly re-lia-ble.

My zeal con-sumes me,
for my ene-mies for-get your in-struc-tions.
Your word is ab-so-lute-ly pure,
and your serv-ant loves it!

I am in-sig-nifi-cant and de-spised,
yet I do not for-get your pre-cepts.
Your jus-tice en-dures for-ev-er,
and your law is re-lia-ble.

Dis-tress and hard-ship con-front me,
yet I find de-light in your com-mands.
Your rules re-main just.
Give me in-sight so that I can live.

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 25:31-46


“When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be assembled before him, and he will separate people one from another like a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me. ’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the king will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did it for me. ’

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels! For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink. I was a stranger and you did not receive me as a guest, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me. ’ Then they too will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not give you whatever you needed?’ Then he will answer them, ‘I tell you the truth, just as you did not do it for one of the least of these, you did not do it for me. ’ And these will depart into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Saturday - 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.

Amen.

A Collect for Saturdays

Almighty God, who after the creation of the world rested from all your works and sanctified a day of rest for all your creatures: Grant that we, putting away all earthly anxieties, may be duly prepared for the service of your sanctuary, and that our rest here upon earth may be a preparation for the eternal rest promised to your people in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of your faithful people is governed and sanctified: Receive our supplications and prayers which we offer before you for all members of your holy Church, that in their vocation and ministry they may truly and devoutly serve you; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Amen.
