Prelude                                  Der am Kreutz ist meine, HoWV VIII.23         G.A. Homilius

 

         

Introit:       Invocábit me

 

He shall call upon me, and I will hearken unto him; I will deliver him, and bring him to honor: with length of days will I satisfy him. Ps. Who so dwelleth under the defense of the Most High: shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 

The Great Litany

 

On the First Sunday in Lent we begin the mass with The Great Litany.

 

                       

Kramskoĭ, Ivan Nikolaevich, 1837-1887. Study for Christ in the Wilderness, from Art in the Christian Tradition, a project of the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, TN.


From all blindness of heart; from pride, vainglory, and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred, and malice; and from all want of charity.

Good Lord, deliver us.

Good Lord, deliver us.

From all oppression, conspiracy, and rebellion; from violence, battle, and murder; and from dying suddenly and unprepared.

Good Lord, deliver us.

By the mystery of thy holy Incarnation; by thy holy Nativity and submission to the Law; by thy Baptism, Fasting, and Temptation.

Good Lord, deliver us.

By thine Agony and Bloody Sweat; by thy Cross and Passion; by thy precious Death and Burial; by thy glorious Resurrection and Ascension; and by the Coming of the Holy Ghost.

Good Lord, deliver us.

In all time of our tribulation; in all time of our prosperity; in the hour of death, and in the day of judgment.

Good Lord, deliver us.

We sinners do beseech thee to hear us, O Lord God; and that it may please thee to rule and govern thy holy Church Universal in the right way.

The Holy Eucharist

 

Celebrant

 

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

 

Let us pray.

 

Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Please be seated

 

A Reading from Deuteronomy 26:1-11

 

When you have come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, and you possess it, and settle in it, you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you harvest from the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place that the Lord your God will choose as a dwelling for his name. You shall go to the priest who is in office at that time, and say to him, “Today I declare to the Lord your God that I have come into the land that the Lord swore to our ancestors to give us.” When the priest takes the basket from your hand and sets it down before the altar of the Lord your God, you shall make this response before the Lord your God: “A wandering Aramean was my ancestor; he went down into Egypt and lived there as an alien, few in number, and there he became a great nation, mighty and populous. When the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, by imposing hard labor on us, we cried to the Lord, the God of our ancestors; the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression. The Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; and he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. So now I bring the first of the fruit of the ground that you, O Lord, have given me.” You shall set it down before the Lord your God and bow down before the Lord your God. Then you, together with the Levites and the aliens who reside among you, shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you and to your house.

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

 

 

All say

 

Psalm  91:1-2, 9-16

 

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High,

abides under the shadow of the Almighty.

He shall say to the Lord,

“You are my refuge and my stronghold,

my God in whom I put my trust.”

Because you have made the Lord your refuge,

and the Most High your habitation,

There shall no evil happen to you,

neither shall any plague come near your dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over you,

to keep you in all your ways.

They shall bear you in their hands,

lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and adder;

you shall trample the young lion and the serpent under your feet.

Because he is bound to me in love,

therefore will I deliver him;

I will protect him, because he knows my Name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;

I am with him in trouble;

I will rescue him and bring him to honor.

With long life will I satisfy him,

and show him my salvation.

 

A Reading from Romans 10:8b-13

 

“The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart”

 

(that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. The scripture says, “No one who believes in him will be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Hymn 635                                             “If thou but trust in God to guide thee”

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke 4:1-13

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

After his baptism, Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. The devil said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.” Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone.'”

 

Then the devil led him up and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. And the devil said to him, “To you I will give their glory and all this authority; for it has been given over to me, and I give it to anyone I please. If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” Jesus answered him, “It is written,

 

‘Worship the Lord your God,

and serve only him.'”

 

Then the devil took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, for it is written,

 

‘He will command his angels concerning you,

to protect you,’

 

and

 

‘On their hands they will bear you up,

so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.'”

 

Jesus answered him, “It is said, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'” When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time.

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

 

Sermon                                                                                  The Reverend Andy Houltberg

All stand

 

We believe in one God,

   the Father, the Almighty,

   maker of heaven and earth,

   of all that is, seen and unseen.

   We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

   the only Son of God,

   eternally begotten of the Father,

   God from God, Light from Light,

   true God from true God,

   begotten, not made,

   of one Being with the Father.

   Through him all things were made.

   For us and for our salvation

   he came down from heaven:

   by the power of the Holy Spirit

   he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

   and was made man.

   For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

   he suffered death and was buried.

   On the third day he rose again

   in accordance with the Scriptures;

   he ascended into heaven

   and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

   He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

   and his kingdom will have no end.

   We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

   who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

   With the Father and the Son, he is worshiped and glorified.

   He has spoken through the Prophets.

   We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

   We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

   We look for the resurrection of the dead,

    and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Celebrant

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

          And also with you.

 

Musical Offering        Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days    Zebulon M. Highben

 

Lord, who throughout these forty days for us didst fast and pray,

teach us with you to mourn our sins, and close by you to stay.

 

As you with Satan didst contend, and did the victory win,

O give us strength in you to fight, in you to conquer sin.

 

As you did hunger bear and thirst, so teach us, gracious Lord,

to die to self, and always live by your most holy word.

 

And through these days of penitence, and through your Passiontide,

for evermore, in life and death, Lord, with us abide.

 

Abide with us that when this life of suffering is past,

an Easter of unending joy we may attain at last!

  • Claudia F.I. Hernaman, alt.

 

 

The Holy Communion

 

Please stand

 

The Celebrant says

 

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give him thanks and praise.

 

Then, facing the Holy Table, the Celebrant proceeds

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who was tempted in every way as we are, yet did not sin. By his grace we are able to triumph over every evil, and to live no longer for ourselves alone, but for him who died for us and rose again.

 

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All sing

 

 

Then the Celebrant continues

 

Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.

 

He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.

 

On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

 

After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.

 

Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:

 

Celebrant and People

 

Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.

 

The Celebrant continues

We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.

Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.

 

All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.

 

The Celebrant continues

 

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread. A period of silence is kept

 

All sing

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Celebrant offers the consecrated bread and wine to the people saying

 

The Gifts of God for the People of God.

 

All baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Communion. If you have not been baptized and would like to receive a blessing, please come forward and cross your arms across your chest.

 

Hymn 143                                                                             “The Glory of these forty days”

 

Celebrant

 

Let us pray.

 

Please stand

 

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

The Celebrant says a solemn prayer for Lent over the people

 

Grant, Almighty God, that your people may recognize their weakness and put their whole trust in your strength, so that they may rejoice for ever in the protection of your loving providence; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

 

Hymn 448                                                            “O love, how deep, how broad, how high”

 

Celebrant

 

Let us bless the Lord.

Thanks be to God.
