In him the whole structure is joined
and grows into a holy temple in the Lord.
Call to praise
I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
I will sing praise to my God
while I have being.
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning,
and will be for ever. Amen.
Psalm 68.18-21 [17-20]
The chariots of God are thousands upon
The Lord has come from Sinai to the holy
You have gone up on high; you have taken
receiving people in tribute, O God,
even those who rebel, into your dwelling, O
May the Lord be blessed day after day.
God our savior bears our burdens;
this God of ours is a God who saves.
The Lord our God holds the keys of death.
Bless the Lord, O my soul.
O my God, you are very great.
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
wrapped in light as with a garment.
You make the winds your messengers,
fire and flame your ministers.
Call to discipleship
Let us hold to the standard of sound
teaching that we have heard,
in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
Now when they heard this, [the people] were cut to the heart and said to Peter and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?” Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to him.” And he testified with many other arguments and exhorted them, saying, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” So those who welcomed his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand persons were added.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

for thine is the kingdom, and the power,
and the glory forever. Amen.
Lead a life worthy of the calling
to which you have been called,
