PLEASE NOTE: We are now using Setting Ten (page 203) which uses well-known hymns for the musical
arrangements. With this setting, everyone will sing together the entire Kyrie, since it is well suited for us to sing as
one. Also note that throughout Lent, we will not sing either of the Hymns of Praise and we will use the special Lenten
Gospel Acclamation (bottom of page 205) in keeping with the Lenten tradition of not singing or saying "Alleluia" or

First Reading: Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7
The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded
the man, 'You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall
not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.'
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other wild animal that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, 'Did
God say, "You shall not eat from any tree in the garden"?' The woman said to the serpent, 'We may eat of the fruit
of the trees in the garden; but God said, "You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden,
nor shall you touch it, or you shall die." ' But the serpent said to the woman, 'You will not die; for God knows that
when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.' So when the woman
saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to
make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate.
Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and
made loincloths for themselves.
Second Reading: Romans 5:12-19
Just as sin came into the world through one man, and death came through sin, and so death spread to all because
all have sinned- sin was indeed in the world before the law, but sin is not reckoned when there is no law. Yet death
exercised dominion from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who
is a type of the one who was to come.
But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died through the one man's trespass, much more surely
have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abounded for the many. And the
free gift is not like the effect of the one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation,
but the free gift following many trespasses brings justification. If, because of the one man's trespass, death
exercised dominion through that one, much more surely will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free
gift of righteousness exercise dominion in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
Therefore just as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all, so one man's act of righteousness leads to
justification and life for all. For just as by the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one
man's obedience the many will be made righteous.
