Thursday - Easter Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Alle-lu-ia! Christ is ris-en.
The Lord is risen in-deed. Alle-lu-ia!
O give thanks to/the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.

Thus says the high and lofty One
who in-habits e-terni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in/the high and holy place

and al-so with/the one who has a con-trite and hum-ble spi-rit,
to re-vive the spirit of/the hum-ble and the heart of/the con-trite.
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.


Thursday - Christ Our Passover


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Alle-lu-ia! Christ our Pass-over has been sacri-ficed for us;
there-fore let us keep the feast,
Not with old leaven, the leaven of mal-ice and e-vil,
but with/the un-leavened bread of sin-ceri-ty and truth. Alle-lu-ia!

Christ being raised from/the dead will never die a-gain;
death no longer has do-minion over him.
The death he died, he died to sin, once for all;
but the life he lives, he lives to God.

So al-so con-sider your-selves dead to sin,
and a-live to God in Je-sus Christ our Lord. Alle-lu-ia!
Christ has been raised from/the dead,
the first fruits of those who have fallen a-sleep.

For since by a man came death,
by a man has come al-so the resur-rec-tion of/the dead.
For as in A-dam all die,
so in Christ shall all be made a-live. Alle-lu-ia!


Psalms



Psalm 71


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




In you, O Lord, I have taken shel-ter!
Nev-er let me be hu-mili-at-ed!
Vin-di-cate me by res-cu-ing me!
List-en to me! De-liver me!

Be my pro-tector and ref-uge,
a strong-hold where I can be safe!
For you are my high ridge
and my strong-hold for-ev-er.

My God, res-cue me
from the power of/the wick-ed,
from the hand of/the cruel op-pres-sor!
For you are my hope; O Sovereign Lord,

I have trusted in you since I was young.
I have leaned on you since birth;
you pulled me from my mother's womb.
I praise you con-tinual-ly.

Many are ap-palled when they see me,
but you are my se-cure shel-ter.
I praise you con-stant-ly
and speak of your splendor all day long.

Do not re-ject me in my old age!
When all my strength has failed,
do not a-bandon me!
For my ene-mies talk a-bout me;

Those waiting for a chance to kill me plot my de-mise.
They say, God has a-bandoned him.
Run and seize him,
for there is no one who will res-cue him!

O God, do not re-main far/a-way from me!
My God, hurry and help me!
May my ac-cusers be
hu-mili-at-ed and de-feat-ed!

May those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and dis-grace!
As for me, I will wait con-tinual-ly,
and will con-tinue to praise you.

I will tell/a-bout your jus-tice,
and all day long pro-claim your sal-va-tion,
though I cannot fathom its full ex-tent.
I will come and tell/a-bout your deeds

The might-y acts of/the Sovereign Lord.
I will pro-claim your justice yours a-lone.
O God, you have taught me since I was young,
and I am still de-claring your a-mazing deeds.

Even when I am old and gray,
O God. Do not a-bandon me
un-til I tell the next gener-a-tion
a-bout your strength and power.

Your jus-tice, O God,
ex-tends to/the skies a-bove;
you have done great things. O God,
who can com-pare to you?

Though you have al-lowed me to ex-peri-ence
much trou-ble and dis-tress,
re-vive me once a-gain!
Bring me up once a-gain

From the depths of/the earth!
Raise me to a po-si-tion of great hon-or!
Turn and comfort me, O God!
I will ex-press my thanks to you

With a stringed instru-ment,
prais-ing your faithful-ness, O my God!
I will sing praises to you
ac-compan-ied by a harp,

O Ho-ly One of Isra-el!
My lips will shout for joy!
Yes, I will sing your praise!
I will praise you when you rescue me!

All day long my tongue
will al-so tell/a-bout your jus-tice,
for those who want to harm me
will be em-barrassed and/a-shamed.

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 Leviticus 23:1-22


The LORD spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: These are the appointed festivals of the LORD that you shall proclaim as holy convocations, my appointed festivals. Six days shall work be done; but the seventh day is a sabbath of complete rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no work: it is a sabbath to the LORD throughout your settlements.

These are the appointed festivals of the LORD, the holy convocations, which you shall celebrate at the time appointed for them. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, at twilight, there shall be a passover offering to the LORD, and on the fifteenth day of the same month is the festival of unleavened bread to the LORD; seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. For seven days you shall present the Lord's offerings by fire; on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation: you shall not work at your occupations. The LORD spoke to Moses: Speak to the people of Israel and say to them: When you enter the land that I am giving you and you reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall raise the sheaf before the LORD, that you may find acceptance; on the day after the sabbath the priest shall raise it. On the day when you raise the sheaf, you shall offer a lamb a year old, without blemish, as a burnt offering to the LORD. And the grain offering with it shall be two-tenths of an ephah of choice flour mixed with oil, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD; and the drink offering with it shall be of wine, one-fourth of a hin. You shall eat no bread or parched grain or fresh ears until that very day, until you have brought the offering of your God: it is a statute forever throughout your generations in all your settlements.

And from the day after the sabbath, from the day on which you bring the sheaf of the elevation offering, you shall count off seven weeks; they shall be complete. You shall count until the day after the seventh sabbath, fifty days; then you shall present an offering of new grain to the LORD. You shall bring from your settlements two loaves of bread as an elevation offering, each made of two-tenths of an ephah; they shall be of choice flour, baked with leaven, as first fruits to the LORD. You shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, one young bull, and two rams; they shall be a burnt offering to the LORD, along with their grain offering and their drink offerings, an offering by fire of pleasing odor to the LORD. You shall also offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of well-being. The priest shall raise them with the bread of the first fruits as an elevation offering before the LORD, together with the two lambs; they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest. On that same day you shall make proclamation; you shall hold a holy convocation; you shall not work at your occupations. This is a statute forever in all your settlements throughout your generations. When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the very edges of your field, or gather the gleanings of your harvest; you shall leave them for the poor and for the alien: I am the LORD your God.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - 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 Matthew 6:25-34


"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O ruler of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-passing human under-stand-ing.
