Even Song - Friday after Proper 5

Confession


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.
Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins
through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all
goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in
eternal life. Amen.


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 73


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



Cer-tain-ly God is good to Is-ra-el,
and to those whose mo-tives are pure!
But as for me, my feet al-most slipped;
my feet al-most slid out from un-der me.

For I en-vied those who are proud,
as I ob-served the pros-per-i-ty of the wick-ed.
For they suf-fer no pain;
their bod-ies are strong and well-fed.

They are im-mune to the trou-ble com-mon to men;
they do not suf-fer as oth-er men do.
Ar-ro-gance is their neck-lace,
and vio-lence cov-ers them like cloth-ing.

Their pros-per-i-ty caus-es them to do wrong;
All their thoughts are sin-ful.
They mock and say e-vil things;
they proud-ly threat-en vio-lence.

They speak as if they rule in heav-en,
and lay claim to the earth.
There-fore they have more than e-nough food to eat,
and e-ven suck up the wat-er of the sea.

They say, How does God know what we do?
Is the Most High a-ware of what goes on?
Take a good look! This is what the wick-ed are like,
Those who al-ways have it so eas-y

They get rich-er and rich-er.
Sure-ly in vain I have kept my mo-tives pure
and main-tained a pure life-style.
suf-fer all day long,

I am pun-ished eve-ry morn-ing.
If I had pub-li-cized these thoughts,
I would have be-trayed your peo-ple.
When I tried to make sense of this,

it was trou-bling to me.
Then I en-tered the pre-cincts of God's tem-ple,
and un-der-stood the des-ti-ny of the wick-ed.
Sure-ly you put them in slip-per-plac-es;

You bring them down to ruin.
How des-o-late they be-come in mere mo-ment!
Ter-ri-fy-ing judg-ments make their de-mise com-plete!
They are like a dream af-ter one wakes up.

O Lord, when you a-wake you will de-spise them.
Yes, my spi-rit was bit-ter,
and my in-sides felt sharp pain.
I was ig-no-rant and lacked in-sight;

I was as sense-less as an an-i-mal be-fore you.
But I am con-tin-ual-ly with you;
And you hold my right hand.
You guide me by your wise ad-vice,

and then you will lead me
to a po-si-tion of hon-or.
Whom do I have in heav-en but you?
I de-sire no one but you on earth.

My flesh and my heart may grow weak,
but God al-ways pro-tects my heart
and gives me sta-bil-i-ty.
Yes, look! Those far from you die;

You de-stroy eve-ry-one who is un-faith-ful to you.
But as for me, Gods pres-ence is all need.
I have made the Sove-reign Lord my shel-ter,
as I de-clare all the things you have done.

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 16:21-28


From that time on Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him: “God forbid, Lord! This must not happen to you!” But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s. ”

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of me will find it. For what does it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but forfeits his life? Or what can a person give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. I tell you the truth, there are some standing here who will not experience death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom. ”

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.

That we may be par-doned and for-giv-en for our sins and of-fenses,
We en-treat you, Lord.
That there may be peace to your Church and to the whole world,
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.

Glo-ry to God whose pow-er, work-ing in us,
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
