Awake, why sleepest Thou. O Lord! Arise, cast us not off forever.
Wherefore hidest Thou Thy face: and forgettest our affliction?
Our soul is bowed down to the dust: arise for our help and redeem us.
Ps. We have heard with our ears, O God: our fathers have told us what work Thou didst in their days.
Glory be to the Father, etc.

Septuagesima Sunday

I am trying to locate the copyright holder of a collection of the Proper of the Service according to the Common Service Book and the Evangelical Lutheran hymn Book. This volume contains the Introits, Graduals/Tracts, and proper Offertories, set to Gegorian notation. I would like to expand this to include the proper Post-Communion collects also. Beginning with this post, I will post the suggested proper Offertories.

For Septuagesima, set to Tone IV:

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord: and to song praises unto Thy Name, O Most High.
