Even Song - Tuesday after Proper 6

Tuesday - 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.




Tuesday - O Gracious Light

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   


O gra-cious light, pure bright-ness
of the ev-er 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 78:40-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



How of-ten they re-belled a-gainst him in the wil-der-ness,
and insulted him in the waste-land!
They a-gain chal-lenged God,
and offended the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

They did not re-mem-ber what he had done,
how he delivered them from the en-e-my,
when he performed his awe-some deeds in E-gypt,
and his acts of judg-ment in the re-gion of Zoan.

He turned their rivers into blood,
and they could not drink from their stream.
He sent swarms of bit-ing in-sects a-gainst them,
as well as frogs that overran their land.

He gave their crops to the grass-hop-per,
the fruit of their la-bor to the lo-cust.
He destroyed their vines with hail,
and their syc-a-more fig trees with driv-ing rain.

He rained hail down on their cat-tle,
and hurled light-ning bolts down on their live-stock.
His rag-ing an-ger lashed out a-gainst them,
He sent fu-ry, rage, and trou-ble

as mes-sen-gers who br-ing dis-as-ter.
He sent his an-ger in full force;
he did not spare them from death;
he hand-ed their lives o-ver to de-struc-tion.

He struck down all the first-born in E-gypt,
the first fruits of their re-pro-duc-tive pow-er in the tents of Ham.
Yet he brought out his peo-ple like sheep;
he led them through the wil-der-ness like flock.

He guid-ed them safe-ly a-long,
and they were not a-fraid;
but the sea cov-ered their en-e-my.
He brought them to the bor-der of his ho-ly land,

to this moun-tain-ous land
which his right hand ac-quired.
He drove the na-tions out from be-fore them;
he assigned them their trib-al al-lot-ments

and al-lowed the tribes of Is-ra-el to set-tle down.
Yet they chal-lenged and defied God Most High,
and did not o-bey his com-mand.
They were un-faith-ful to God

and acted as treach-er-ous-ly as their an-ces-tor;
they were as un-re-li-a-ble as bro-ken bow.
They made him an-gry with their pa-gan shrine,
and made him jeal-ous with their i-dol.

God heard and was an-gry;
he com-plete-ly rejected Is-ra-el.
He a-ban-doned the sanc-tu-ar-y at Shi-loh,
the tent where he lived a-mong men.

He al-lowed the sym-bol of his pres-ence to be cap-tured;
he gave the sym-bol of his splen-dor to the en-e-my.
He delivered his peo-ple o-ver to the sword,
and was an-gry with his cho-sen na-tion.

Fire con-sumed their young men,
and their vir-gins remained un-mar-ried.
Their priests fell by the sword,
but their wid-ows did not weep.

But then the Lord a-woke from his sleep;
he was like a war-ri-or in drunk-en rage.
He drove his en-e-mies back;
he made them a per-ma-nent tar-get for in-sult.

He rejected the tent of Jo-seph;
he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim.
He chose the tribe of Ju-dah,
and Mount Zi-on, which he love.

He made his sanc-tu-ar-y
as en-dur-ing as the heav-ens a-bove;
as se-cure as the earth,
which he established per-ma-nent-ly.

He chose Da-vid, his serv-ant,
and took him from the sheep fold.
He took him a-way from fol-low-ing the sheep,
and made him the shep-herd

of Ja-cob, his peo-ple,
and of Is-ra-el, his cho-sen na-tion.
Da-vid cared for them
with pure mo-tives; he led them with skill.

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 17:22-27


When they gathered together in Galilee, Jesus told them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and on the third day he will be raised. ” And they became greatly distressed.

After they arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the temple tax came to Peter and said, “Your teacher pays the double drachma tax, doesn’t he?”He said, “Yes. ” When Peter came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do earthly kings collect tolls or taxes – from their sons or from foreigners?” After he said, “From foreigners,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. But so that we don’t offend them, go to the lake and throw out a hook. Take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth, you will find a four drachma coin. Take that and give it to them for me and you. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!




Tuesday - 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.




Tuesday 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.




Tuesday - 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.

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 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.

Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time
with one ac-cord

and you have prom-ised
through your well-be-lov-ed Son

you will be in the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions
