Even Song - Saturday after Proper 7

Saturday - 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.



Saturday - 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 33

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



You god-ly one, shout for joy be-cause of the Lord!
It is ap-pro-pri-ate for the mor-al-ly up-right to of-fer him praise.
Give thanks to the Lord with the harp!
Sing to him to the ac-com-pa-ni-ment of a ten stringed in-stru-ment!

Sing to him new song!
Play skill-ful-ly as you shout out your prais-es to him!
For the Lord's de-crees are just,
and eve-ry-thing he does is fair.

He pro-motes eq-ui-ty and jus-tice;
the Lord's faith-ful-ness ex-tends through-out the earth.
By the Lord's de-cree the heav-ens were made;
and by the breath of his mouth all the star-ry host.

He piles up the wat-er of the sea;
he puts the o-ceans in store-hous-es.
Let the whole earth fear the Lord!
Let all who live in the world stand in awe of him!

For he spoke, and it came into ex-ist-ence,
he is-sued the de-cree, and it stood firm.
The Lord frus-trates the de-ci-sions of the na-tion;
he nul-li-fies the plans of the peo-ples.

The Lord's de-ci-sions stand for-ev-er;
his plans a-bide through-out the ag-es.
How bless-ed is the na-tion whose God is the Lord,
the peo-ple whom he has cho-sen to be his spe-cial pos-ses-sion.

The Lord watch-es from heav-en;
and he sees all peo-ples.
From the place where he lives
he looks care-ful-ly at all the earth's in-hab-it-ants.

He is the one who forms eve-ry hu-man heart,
and takes note of all their ac-tions.
No king is de-liv-ered by his vast ar-my;
a war-ri-or is not saved by his great might.

A horse dis-ap-points those who trust in it for vic-to-ry;
de-spite its great strength, it can-not de-liv-er.
Look, the Lord takes no-tice of his loy-al fol-low-ers,
those who wait for him to dem-on-strate his faith-ful-ness

By sav-ing their lives from death
and sus-tain-ing them dur-ing times of fam-ine.
We wait for the Lord;
he is our de-liv-er-er and shield.

For our hearts re-joice in him,
for we trust in his ho-ly name.
May we ex-pe-ri-ence your faith-ful-ness, Lord,
for we wait up-on you.

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 21:1-11


Now when they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, telling them, “Go to the village ahead of you. Right away you will find a donkey tied there, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, you are to say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once. ” This took place to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet:

“Tell the people of Zion,
‘Look, your king is coming to you,
unassuming and seated on a donkey,
and on a colt, the foal of a donkey. ’”

So the disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them, and he sat on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that went ahead of him and those following kept shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!” As he entered Jerusalem the whole city was thrown into an uproar, saying, “Who is this?” And the crowds were saying, “This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!


Saturday - 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.



Saturday 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.



Saturday - Our Father

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.

We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,

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.







Father in heaven, by your grace the virgin mother of your incarnate Son was blessed in bearing him, but still more blessed in keeping your word: Grant us who honor the exaltation of her lowliness to follow the example of her devotion to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. 
Amen.

A Collect for Saturdays

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
