Confession of Sin   
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Venite
Psalm 95:1 to 7

Come, let us sing to the Lord;
   let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
   and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
   and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth,
   and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
   and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
   and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
    Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

The Antiphon:
?  a short sentence recited before or after a psalm to help us understand the readings
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: Come let us adore him.


The Lessons



Psalm 105

(1) Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. (2) Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. (3) Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. (4) Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.

(5) Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, (6) O descendants of Abraham his servant, O sons of Jacob, his chosen ones. (7) He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. (8) He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations,

(9) the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac. (10) He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: (11) To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit.' (12) When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it,

(13) they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. (14) He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings: (15) Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.' (16) He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food;

(17) and he sent a man before them-- Joseph, sold as a slave. (18) They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons, (19) till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the LORD proved him true. (20) The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free.

(21) He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed, (22) to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.



Numbers Chapter 17

(1) The LORD said to Moses, (2) Speak to the Israelites and get twelve staffs from them, one from the leader of each of their ancestral tribes. Write the name of each man on his staff. (3) On the staff of Levi write Aaron's name, for there must be one staff for the head of each ancestral tribe. (4) Place them in the Tent of Meeting in front of the Testimony, where I meet with you.

(5) The staff belonging to the man I choose will sprout, and I will rid myself of this constant grumbling against you by the Israelites.' (6) So Moses spoke to the Israelites, and their leaders gave him twelve staffs, one for the leader of each of their ancestral tribes, and Aaron's staff was among them. (7) Moses placed the staffs before the LORD in the Tent of the Testimony. (8) The next day Moses entered the Tent of the Testimony and saw that Aaron's staff, which represented the house of Levi, had not only sprouted but had budded, blossomed and produced almonds.

(9) Then Moses brought out all the staffs from the LORD's presence to all the Israelites. They looked at them, and each man took his own staff. (10) The LORD said to Moses, 'Put back Aaron's staff in front of the Testimony, to be kept as a sign to the rebellious. This will put an end to their grumbling against me, so that they will not die.' (11) Moses did just as the LORD commanded him.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.



Romans Chapter 5

(1) Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, (2) through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. (3) Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; (4) perseverance, character; and character, hope.

(5) And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. (6) You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. (7) Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. (8) But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

(9) Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him! (10) For if, when we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! (11) Not only is this so, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.



Matthew Chapter 20

(17) Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, (18) We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn him to death (19) and will turn him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified. On the third day he will be raised to life!' (20) Then the mother of Zebedee's sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him.

(21) What is it you want?' he asked. She said, 'Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.' (22) You don't know what you are asking,' Jesus said to them. 'Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?' 'We can,' they answered. (23) Jesus said to them, 'You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.' (24) When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers.

(25) Jesus called them together and said, 'You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. (26) Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, (27) and whoever wants to be first must be your slave-- (28) just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.'

The Canticles


The Song of Moses
Exodus 15:1 to 6, 11 to 13; 17 to 18

I will sing to the Lord, for he is lofty and uplifted;
the horse and its rider has he hurled into the sea.
The Lord is my strength and my refuge;
the Lord has become my Savior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my people and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a mighty warrior;
Yahweh is his Name.
The chariots of Pharoah and his army has he hurled into the sea;
the finest of those who bear armor have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in might;
your right hand, O Lord, has overthrown the enemy.
Who can be compared with you, O Lord, among the gods?
who is like you, glorious in holiness,
awesome in renown, and worker of wonders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swallowed them up.
With your constant love you led the people you redeemed;
with your might you brought them in safety to
your holy dwelling.
You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your possession,
The resting-place you have made for yourself, O Lord,
the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hand has established.
The Lord shall reign forever and forever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
