Invitation



Wednesday - 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.


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 42


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



As/a deer longs for streams of wat-er,
so I long/for you, O God!
I thirst for God, for/the living God.
When will I be able to/ap-pear in God's pres-ence?

I can-not eat,
and I weep day and night;
all day long they say/to me, Where is your God?
I will re-member and weep!

For I was once walking a-long
with the great throng to/the tem-ple of God,
shouting and giving thanks a-long with/the crowd
as we cele-brat-ed the holy fes-ti-val.

Why/are you de-pressed, O my soul?
Why/are you up-set? Wait for God!
For I will/a-gain give thanks to my God
for his saving inter-ven-tion.

I am/de-pressed, so I will pray to you
while in/the re-gion of/the upper Jor-dan,
from Hermon, from Mount Miz-ar.
One deep stream calls out to an-oth-er

At/the sound of your water-fall;
all your billows and waves over-whelm me.
By day the Lord de-crees his loyal love,
and by night he gives me a song,

a prayer to/the God of my life.
I will pray to God, my high ridge:
Why do you ig-nore me?
Why must I walk/a-round mourn-ing?

Be-cause my ene-mies op-press me?
My ene-mies taunts cut me to/the bone,
as they say/to me all day long,
So where then is your God?

Why/are you de-pressed, O my soul?
Why/are you up-set? Wait for God!
For I will/a-gain give thanks to my God
for his saving inter-ven-tion.

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 43


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Vindi-cate me, O God!
Fight for me/a-gainst an un-godly na-tion!
De-liver me from de-ceitful and evil men!
For you are the God who shelters me.

Why do you re-ject me?
Why must I walk/a-round mourn-ing
be-cause my ene-mies op-press me?
Re-veal your light and your faithful-ness!

They will lead me,
and they will es-cort me
back to your holy hill,
and to/the place where you live.

Then I will go to/the altar of God,
to the God who gives me ec-static joy,
so/that I ex-press my thanks to you,
O God, my God, with a harp.

Why/are you de-pressed, O my soul?
Why/are you up-set? Wait for God!
For I will/a-gain give thanks to my God
for his saving inter-ven-tion.

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 1 Samuel 2:1-10


Hannah prayed and said, "My heart exults in the LORD; my strength is exalted in my God. My mouth derides my enemies, because I rejoice in my victory. "There is no Holy One like the LORD, no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God. Talk no more so very proudly, let not arrogance come from your mouth; for the LORD is a God of knowledge, and by him actions are weighed. The bows of the mighty are broken, but the feeble gird on strength. Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, but those who were hungry are fat with spoil. The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children is forlorn. The LORD kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up. The LORD makes poor and makes rich; he brings low, he also exalts. He raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap, to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor. For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and on them he has set the world. "He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness; for not by might does one prevail. The LORD! His adversaries shall be shattered; the Most High will thunder in heaven. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; he will give strength to his king, and exalt the power of his anointed."

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.


A reading from John 8:31-36


Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free." They answered him, "We are descendants of Abraham and have never been slaves to anyone. What do you mean by saying, 'You will be made free'?" Jesus answered them, "Very truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not have a permanent place in the household; the son has a place there forever. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
