Even Song - Friday after Proper 4

Confession

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     


Let us con-fess our sins a-gainst God and our neigh-bor.
Most mer-ci-ful God,
we con-fess that we have sinned a-gainst you
in our thoughts, our words, our deeds,

By what we have done,
and by what we have left un-done.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neigh-bors as our-selves.

We are tru-ly sor-ry
and we hum-bly re-pent.
For the sake of your Son Je-sus Christ,
have mer-cy on us and for-give us;

that we may de-light in your will,
and ev-er walk in your ways,
to the glo-ry of your Name. A-men.
Al-might-y God have mer-cy on us,

for-give us all our sins through our Lord Je-sus Christ,
strength-en us in all good-ness,
and by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
keep us in e-ter-nal life. A-men.


Friday - Evensong Invitation

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Wor-ship the Lord in the beau-ty of his ho-li-ness;
let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as in-cense,
the lift-ing up of my hands as the eve-ning sac-ri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives me coun-sel;
my heart teach-es me, night af-ter night.

I have set the Lord al-ways be-fore me;
be-cause he is at my right hand, shall not fall.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Friday - O Gracious Light

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


O gra-cious light, pure bright-ness
of the ev-erl-liv-ing Fath-er in heav-en,
O Je-sus Christ, ho-ly and bless-ed!
we sing your prais-es, God!

Now as we come to the set-ting of the sun,
and our eyes be-hold the ves-per light,
we sing your prais-es, God:
Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit.

You are wor-thy at all times
to be praised by hap-py voic-es,
O Son of God, O Giv-er of life,
and to be glo-ri-fied through all the world.



Psalm 51


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    



Have mer-cy on me, God,
be-cause of your loy-al love!
Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion,
wipe a-way my re-bel-lious acts!

Wash a-way my wrong-do-ing!
Cleanse me of all my sins!
For I am a-ware of my re-bel-lious acts;
I am for-ev-er con-scious of my sin.

A-gainst you, you a-bove all, have sinned;
I have done what is e-vil in your sight.
So you are just when you con-front me;
you are right when you con-demn me.

Look, I was guilt-y of sin from birth,
a sin-ner the mo-ment my moth-er con-ceived me.
Look, you de-sire in-teg-ri-ty in the in-ner man;
you want me to pos-sess wis-dom.

Cleanse me with hys-sop and I will be pure;
wash me and I will be whit-er than snow.
Grant me the ul-ti-mate joy of be-ing for-giv-en!
May the bones you crushed re-joice!

Hide your face from my sins!
Wipe a-way all my guilt!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, God!
Re-new a right spir-it with-in me!

Do not re-ject me!
Do not take your ho-ly Spi-rit a-way from me!
Let me a-gain ex-pe-ri-ence the joy of your de-liv-er-ance!
Sus-tain me by giv-ing me the de-sire to o-bey!

Then I will teach re-bels your mer-ci-ful ways,
and sin-ners will turn to you.
Res-cue me from the guilt of mur-der, God,
the God who de-liv-ers me!

Then my tongue will shout for joy
be-cause of your right-eous-ness.
O Lord, give me the words!
Then my mouth will praise you.

Cer-tain-ly you do not want a sac-ri-fice,
or else would of-fer it;
you do not de-sire a burnt sac-ri-fice.
The sac-ri-fic-es God de-sires are a hum-ble spi-rit God,

a hum-ble and re-pent-ant heart you will not re-ject.
Be-cause you fa-vor Zi-on, do what is good for her!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, God!
Re-new a right spi-rit with-in me!

For-ti-fy the walls of Je-ru-sa-lem!
Then you will ac-cept the prop-er sac-ri-fice,
burnt sac-ri-fic-es and whole of-fer-ings;
then bulls will be sac-ri-ficed on your al-tar.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


A reading from Matthew 14:22-36



Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to the other side, while he dispersed the crowds. And after he sent the crowds away, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone. Meanwhile, the boat, already far from land, was taking a beating from the waves because the wind was against it. As the night was ending, Jesus came to them walking on the sea.

When the disciples saw him walking on the water they were terrified and said, “It’s a ghost!” and cried out with fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them: “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid. ” Peter said to him, “Lord, if it is you, order me to come to you on the water. ” So he said, “Come. ” Peter got out of the boat, walked on the water, and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind he became afraid. And starting to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?” When they went up into the boat, the wind ceased. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God. ”

After they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. When the people there recognized him, they sent word into all the surrounding area, and they brought all their sick to him. They begged him if they could only touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Friday - Song of Mary

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



Friday Creed

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.



Friday - Our Father

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. A-men.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.



Friday - Suffrages B

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    


That this eve-ning may be ho-ly, good, and peace-ful,
We en-treat you, Lord.
That your ho-ly an-gels may lead us in paths of peace and good-will,
We en-treat you, Lord.

We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,
and be freed from con-dem-na-tion
be-fore the great judg-ment seat of Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may be bound to-geth-er by your Ho-ly Spi-rit
in the com-mun-ion of Bar-na-bas and all your saints,
en-trust-ing one an-oth-er and all our life to Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.





O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. 
Amen.

A Collect for Fridays
Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your tender mercies' sake. 
Amen.

Prayer for Mission
O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship you, all nations obey you, all tongues confess and bless you, and men and women everywhere love you and serve you in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.


A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     


Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time
with one ac-cord
to make our com-mon sup-pli-ca-tion to you;

and you have prom-ised
through your well-be-lov-ed Son
that when two or three are ga-thered to-geth-er in his Name
you will be in the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions
as may be best for us;
grant-ing us in this world knowl-edge of your truth,
and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

can do in-fi-nite-ly more than we can ask or im-ag-ine

Glo-ry to him from gen-er-a-tion to gen-er-a-tion in the Church,
and in Christ Je-sus for ev-er and ev-er. A-men.
Let us bless the Lord. Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia
Thanks be to God. Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia
