Invitation to  Worship

Come, let us sing to  Adonai, let us praise the God of all creation!

O Holy One,+ open my lips.

~And my mouth will proclaim your praise.


Let everything that lives and that breathes-

~give praise to Adonai, alleluia!

Sunday Morning Hymn

On this day, the first of days,

God our Abba’s Name we praise;

Who creation’s Source and Spring

Did the world from darkness bring.


On this day th’ eternal Son

over death his triumph won;

On this day the Spirit  came

with those gifts of living flame.


God, you made woman and man

Godlike in your loving plan,

Fill us with that love divine

that like stars we too may shine.


Word-Made-Flesh, all praises be!

You from sin have set us free;

And with you we die and rise

Unto God in sacrifice.


Holy Spirit you impart

Gifts of love to ev’ry heart

Give us light and grace, we pray,

Fill our hearts this holy day.


God, O Blessed Three in One

May your holy will be done;

In your word our souls are free,

As we praise the Trinity.  Amen.

How many are your works, O God!

In wisdom you have wrought them all.

Psalm 95/96

Sing a new song to Adonai!

Sing it and bless God’s Name!

Sing it everyone, and everywhere!

Proclaim God’s help every day,

Tell every nation about the triumph!

God’s glory and wonders among the peoples.


A God so great deserves all praise,

and the dread of all other gods,

far too many value their worthless idols

but it was Adonai who made the heavens;

to God belong majesty and power

and splendorous beauty in the temple.


Proclaim Adonai, O families of nations,

Praise the glory of God’s power

Praise the glory of the Holy Name.

Bring gifts to offer in the temple,

worship with reverence and awe,

O Earth, join us in praise.


Tell it among the nations:

“Adonai reigns with justice!

As the firmness of Earth is not swayed,

nothing will sway the justice of God.


Let heaven and Earth be glad,

the  sea and its creatures render praise;

the fields and their animals exult,

the trees and their birds sing for joy,

at the presence of Adonai who comes–

who comes to reign on Earth.


With justice God will set Earth aright;

with truth restore the world to order!


Glory to the ONE and to the WORD

and to the BREATH of Love.

As always before

so now and evermore. Amen.

How many are your works, O God!

In wisdom you have wrought them all.

 READING   I Corinthans 2:6-8

We speak a wisdom to those who are mature, not a wisdom of this age,
nor of the rulers of this age who are passing away.
Rather, we speak God’s wisdom, mysterious, hidden, which God predetermined before the ages for our glory, and which none of the rulers of this age knew;
for, if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.


R.  O the depth of the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge in God!  How unsearchable God’s judgments, how untraceable God’s ways!  Source, Guide and Goal of all that is–to whom be glory forever,  Amen!

Canticle of Zachariah


Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal — have mercy on us!

Blessed + be Adonai, the God of Israel,

Who visits this people to set us free

Raising for us a sign of salvation

In the house and family of David.


God promised throughout past ages

In words of holy prophets

To save us from our enemies,

And from the control of our oppressors.


Adonai favored our ancestors

And remembered the sacred covenant.

The pledge to Abraham and Sarah

Is now renewed for us;


That freed from the grip of our foes

We might worship without fear

And be both just and holy

For the rest of our days.


And you, child, called “prophet of the Most High,”

Will go ahead to prepare the way,

By teaching this people of salvation

Through forgiveness of their sins.


For the loving compassion of the Holy One

As the Rising Sun will shine upon us

To illumine the darkness and dispel death’s shadow

To Guide our feet on the way of peace.


Glory to the ONE and to the WORD

And to the BREATH of Love!

As always before,

so now and evermore.  Amen

Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy and Immortal — have mercy on us!


Litany of Intercession

O Dear Abba, send your Spirit to us who do not know how to pray as we ought; ~ may the Spirit help us in our frailty, and ask for us those gifts that will free us to do your will.


O Word of God, you asked the Abba to send your Holy Spirit upon us; ~make us worthy to have the Spirit of Truth and Wisdom with us at all times, that we may know ourselves as called and gifted to join you in bringing life to the world.


O Spirit and Breath  of God, fill us with your life ~that we may bear the fruits of love and joy, peace and serenity, kindness and generosity, modesty and chastity, endurance and patience, faithfulness and self-control.
