The Hymnal 1982 is the official "songbook" of the Episcopal Church.

Providing for all those who enhance our worship by singing -- congregation, choir and soloists alike -- it includes all hymns and service music

for the principal services on Sundays and all other occasions. Verses from some faves are quoted below.

Published in 1995  by Augsburg Press, With One Voice  was developed for use by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America  and the ELCIC (Canada branch).  With One Voice contains more than 200 hymns, songs and pieces of service music. The With One Voice hymnals are used occasionally in tribute to the joint-worship relationship St. Luke's had with the congregation of Our Saviour Lutheran Church, formerly of Cresskill, N.J.

Lessons from the Bible are read during the services according to the Revised Common Lectionary.

Authorized in 2006 by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church, the Lectionary covers the entire Bible over a three-year cycle. Lessons for Years A, B and C, together with readings for the major Holy Days of the church year, are presented in the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). Although there are many different translations used around the world, the NRSV is an English translation of the Bible published in 1989 by National Council of Churches.

The online version, a service of Vanderbilt Divinity Library, is available here:

Forward Day by Day is a booklet of daily inspiration meditations reflecting on a specific passage from the Bible. The readings are selected from the daily lectionary readings (listed in the Revised Common Lectionary or the Daily Office from the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer. )

Rich in substance, the meditations  offer a wide range of witness and experiences. Each month's set of meditations is written by a different author. For the daily readings and meditations and other resources presented by Forward Movement, click here:
