Monday - Epiphany Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Nations shall come to your light,
and kings to/the brightness of your ris-ing.
I/will give you as/a light to/the na-tions,
that my sal-vation may reach to/the end of/the earth.

From the rising of/the sun to its set-ting
my Name shall be great a-mong the na-tions,
and in every place
in-cense shall be offered to my Name,

and a pure offer-ing: for my Name shall be great
a-mong the nations says the Lord of Hosts.
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.


Monday - 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 56


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Have mercy on me, O God,
for men are at-tacking me!
All day long hostile ene-mies are tor-ment-ing me.
Those who an-tici-pate my de-feat at-tack me all day long.

In-deed, many are fighting a-gainst me, O Ex-alted One.
When I am a-fraid, I trust in you.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, I am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
All day long they cause me trou-ble;
they make a habit of plotting my de-mise.
They stalk and lurk; they watch my eve-ry step,

As they pre-pare to take my life.
Be-cause they are bent on vio-lence,
do not let them es-cape!
In your anger bring down the nations, O God!

You keep track of my mis-er-y.
Put my tears in your leather con-tain-er!
Are they not re-corded in your scroll?
My ene-mies will turn back when I cry out/to you for help;

I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise
in the Lord I boast in his prom-ise
in God I trust, I am not a-fraid.

What can mere men do to me?
I am obli-gated to ful-fill the vows I made to you, O God;
I will give you the thank offer-ings you de-serve,
when you de-liver my life from death.

You keep my feet from stumb-ling,
so that I might serve God as I en-joy life.
I know that God is on my side.
In God I boast in his prom-ise

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 57


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Have mercy on me,
O God! Have mercy on me!
For in you I have taken shel-ter.
In/the shad-ow of your wings

I take shelter un-til trouble pass-es.
I cry out for help to God Most High,
to the God who vindi-cates me.
May he send help from heav-en

and de-liver me from my ene-mies who hurl in-sults!
May God send his loyal love and faithful-ness!
I am sur-rounded by li-ons;
I lie down/a-mong those who want to de-vour me;

men whose teeth are spears and ar-rows,
whose tongues are a sharp sword.
Rise up a-bove the sky, O God!
May your splendor cover the whole earth!

They have pre-pared a net to trap me;
I am great-ly dis-cour-aged.
They have dug a pit for me.
But they will fall into it!

I am de-termined, O God!
I am de-termined I will sing and praise you!
A-wake, my soul!
A-wake, o stringed instru-ment and harp!

I will wake up at dawn!
I will give you thanks be-fore the nations, O Lord!
I will sing praises to you be-fore foreign-ers!
For your loyal love ex-tends be-yond the sky,

Your faithful-ness reach-es the clouds.
Rise up/a-bove the sky, O God!
May your splendor cover the whole earth!
Your faithful-ness reaches the clouds.

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 Genesis 19:1-23


The two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and bowed down with his face to the ground. He said, "Please, my lords, turn aside to your servant's house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you can rise early and go on your way." They said, "No; we will spend the night in the square." But he urged them strongly; so they turned aside to him and entered his house; and he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.

But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both young and old, all the people to the last man, surrounded the house; and they called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, so that we may know them." Lot went out of the door to the men, shut the door after him, and said, "I beg you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly. Look, I have two daughters who have not known a man; let me bring them out to you, and do to them as you please; only do nothing to these men, for they have come under the shelter of my roof." But they replied, "Stand back!" And they said, "This fellow came here as an alien, and he would play the judge! Now we will deal worse with you than with them." Then they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near the door to break it down. But the men inside reached out their hands and brought Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. And they struck with blindness the men who were at the door of the house, both small and great, so that they were unable to find the door.

Then the men said to Lot, "Have you anyone else here? Sons-in-law, sons, daughters, or anyone you have in the city—bring them out of the place. For we are about to destroy this place, because the outcry against its people has become great before the LORD, and the LORD has sent us to destroy it." So Lot went out and said to his sons-in-law, who were to marry his daughters, "Up, get out of this place; for the LORD is about to destroy the city." But he seemed to his sons-in-law to be jesting.

When morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, "Get up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or else you will be consumed in the punishment of the city." But he lingered; so the men seized him and his wife and his two daughters by the hand, the LORD being merciful to him, and they brought him out and left him outside the city. When they had brought them outside, they said, "Flee for your life; do not look back or stop anywhere in the Plain; flee to the hills, or else you will be consumed." And Lot said to them, "Oh, no, my lords; your servant has found favor with you, and you have shown me great kindness in saving my life; but I cannot flee to the hills, for fear the disaster will overtake me and I die. Look, that city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one. Let me escape there—is it not a little one? —and my life will be saved!" He said to him, "Very well, I grant you this favor too, and will not overthrow the city of which you have spoken. Hurry, escape there, for I can do nothing until you arrive there." Therefore the city was called Zoar. The sun had risen on the earth when Lot came to Zoar.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go/in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-lighten the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go/in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 John 6:27-40


Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him that God the Father has set his seal."

Then they said to him, "What must we do to perform the works of God?" Jesus answered them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent." So they said to him, "What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" Then Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." They said to him, "Sir, give us this bread always." Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day."

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Amen.
