Invitation



Wednesday - Advent Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Watch, for you know not when
the master of/the house will come,
at dusk, by night, at dawn, or by day;
lest he come sudden-ly and find you a-sleep.

In/the wilder-ness pre-pare the way of/the Lord,
make straight in/the desert a highway for our God.
The glory of/the Lord shall be re-vealed,
and all flesh shall see/it to-geth-er.

The hour is coming, and now is,
when the true wor-ship-ers
will wor-ship the Fath-er
in spi-rit and in truth,

for such are the follow-ers
the Fath-er seeks to wor-ship him.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouths 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 - 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 119:49-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Re-member your word to your serv-ant,
for you have given me hope.
For Solo-mon. O God, grant the king
the a-bili-ty to make just de-ci-sions!

Grant the king’s son
the a-bili-ty to make fair de-ci-sions!
Then he will judge your people fair-ly,
and your op-pressed ones equi-ta-bly.

The mountains will bring news of peace to/the peo-ple,
and the hills will an-nounce jus-tice.
He will de-fend the op-pressed a-mong the peo-ple;
he will de-liver the children of/the poor and crush the op-pres-sor.

People will fear you as long/as the sun and moon re-main in/the sky,
for gener-ation after gener-ation.
He will de-scend like rain on/the mown grass,
like showers that drench the earth.

During his days the god-ly will flour-ish;
peace will pre-vail as long/as the moon re-mains in/the sky.
May he rule from sea to sea,
and from/the Eu-phra-tes Riv-er to/the ends of/the earth!

Be-fore him the coastlands will bow down,
and his ene-mies will lick the dust.
The kings of Tar-shish and the coastlands will offer gifts;
the kings of She-bah and Se-bah will bring trib-ute.

All kings will bow down to him;
all na-tions will serve him.
For he will res-cue the needy when they cry out for help,
and the op-pressed who have no de-fend-er.

He will take pity on/the poor and need-y;
the lives of/the needy he will save.
From harm and vio-lence he will de-fend them;
he will val-ue their lives.

May he live! May they offer him gold from She-bah!
May they con-tinual-ly pray for him!
May they pro-nounce blessings on him all day long!
May there be an a-bundance of grain in/the earth;

On the tops of/the mountains may it sway!
May its fruit trees flour-ish like the forests of Leba-non!
May its crops be as a-bundant as the grass of/the earth!
May his fame and glory en-dure!

May his dynas-ty last as long/as the sun re-mains in/the sky!
May they use his name when they com-pose their bles-sings!
May all nations con-sider him to be favored by God!
The Lord God, the God of Isra-el, de-serves praise!

He a-lone ac-com-plishes a-mazing things!
His glori-ous name de-serves praise for-ever-more!
May his ma-jestic splendor fill the whole earth!
We a-gree! We a-gree! 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 Zechariah 3:1-10


Then he showed me the high priest Joshua standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. And the LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, O Satan! The LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is not this man a brand plucked from the fire? "Now Joshua was dressed with filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes. " And to him he said, "See, I have taken your guilt away from you, and I will clothe you with festal apparel. "And I said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head. " So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with the apparel; and the angel of the LORD was standing by. Then the angel of the LORD assured Joshua, saying"Thus says the LORD of hosts: If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you shall rule my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you the right of access among those who are standing here.

Now listen, Joshua, high priest, you and your colleagues who sit before you! For they are an omen of things to come: I am going to bring my servant the Branch. For on the stone that I have set before Joshua, on a single stone with seven facets, I will engrave its inscription, says the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the guilt of this land in a single day. On that day, says the LORD of hosts, you shall invite each other to come under your vine and fig tree. "

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 24:45-51


"Who then is the faithful and wise slave, whom his master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves their allowance of food at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master will find at work when he arrives. Truly I tell you, he will put that one in charge of all his possessions. But if that wicked slave says to himself, 'My master is delayed, 'and he begins to beat his fellow slaves, and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour that he does not know. He will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

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-pas-sion,
Let them/re-turn/to our God,
for he will richly 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-turn not/a-gain,
but wat-er 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-complish 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.
