VERSICLES AND RESPONSES
VENITE (Psalm 95:1-7)
O come, let us sing unto the Lord,
let us heartily rejoice in the strength of
our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with
thanksgiving, and shew ourselves glad in
him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are all the corners of the earth
and the strength of the hills is his also.
The sea is his, and he made it,
and his hands prepared the dry land.
O come, let us worship and fall down,
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is the Lord our God,
and we are the people of his pasture,
and the sheep of his hand.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and
ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
PSALM 145 Verses 15 - end
The eyes of all wait upon thee, O Lord,
and thou givest them their meat
in due season.
Thou openest thine hand, and fillest
all things living with plenteousness.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways,
and holy in all his works.
The Lord is nigh unto all them that
call upon him, yea, all such as call
upon him faithfully.
He will fulfil the desire of them that fear
him, he also will hear their cry, and will
help them.
The Lord preserveth all them that love
him : but scattereth abroad all the
ungodly.
My mouth shall speak the praise of the
Lord,
and let all flesh give thanks unto his
holy Name for ever and ever.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and
ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
THE FIRST READING
Isaiah, chapter 55 verses 1-5 (all sit)
The Lord says this: Everyone who thirsts,
come to the waters; and you that have no
money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy
wine and milk without money and
without price. Why do you spend your
money for that which is not bread, and
your labour for that which does not
satisfy? Listen carefully to me, and eat
what is good, and delight yourselves in
rich food. Incline your ear, and come to
me; listen, so that you may live. I will
make with you an everlasting covenant,
my steadfast, sure love for David. See, I
made him a witness to the peoples, a
leader and commander for the peoples.
See, you shall call nations that you do not
know, and nations that do not know you
shall run to you, because of the Lord your
God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has
glorified you.
Here ends the First Lesson
TE DEUM (Metrical Version)
God, we praise you, God, we bless you,
God, we name you sovereign Lord!
Mighty king whom angels worship,
Father, by your Church adored:
All creation shows your glory,
Heaven & earth draw near your throne
Singing “Holy, holy, holy,”
Lord of hosts, and God alone.
True apostles, faithful prophets,
Saints who set their world ablaze,
Martyrs, once unknown, unheeded,
Join one growing song of praise,
While your Church on earth confesses
One majestic Trinity:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
God, our hope eternally.
Jesus Christ, the King of glory,
Everlasting Son of God,
Humble was your virgin mother,
Hard the lonely path you trod:
By your cross is sin defeated,
Hell confronted face to face,
Heaven opened to believers,
Sinners justified by grace.
Christ, at God's right hand victorious,
You will judge the world you made;
Lord, in mercy help your servants
For whose freedom you have paid:
Raise us up from dust to glory,
Guard us from all sin today;
King enthroned above all praises,
Save your people, God, we pray.
THE SECOND READING
The Gospel according to St Matthew
chapter 14 verses 13- 21 (all sit)
When Jesus heard this, he withdrew from
there in a boat to a deserted place by
himself. But when the crowds heard it,
they followed him on foot from the
towns. When he went ashore, he saw a
great crowd; and he had compassion for
them and cured their sick. When it was
evening, the disciples came to him and
said, ‘This is a deserted place, and the
hour is now late; send the crowds away so
that they may go into the villages and buy
food for themselves.’ Jesus said to them,
‘They need not go away; you give them
something to eat.’ They replied, ‘We have
nothing here but five loaves and two fish.’
And he said, ‘Bring them here to me.’
Then he ordered the crowds to sit down
on the grass. Taking the five loaves and
the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and
blessed and broke the loaves, and gave
them to the disciples, and the disciples
gave them to the crowds. And all ate and
were filled; and they took up what was left
over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets
full. And those who ate were about five
thousand men, besides women and
children. Here ends the Second Lesson
