Thursday - Evensong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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, I 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.


Thursday - O Gracious Light


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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, O 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, O 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.


Psalms



Psalm 18:21-50


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



For I have o-beyed the Lord's com-mands;
I have not re-belled a-gainst my God.
For I am a-ware of all his reg-u-la-tions,
and I do not re-ject his rules.

I was in-no-cent be-fore him,
and kept my-self from sin-ning.
The Lord re-ward-ed me for my god-ly deeds;
he took no-tice of my blame-less be-hav-ior.

You prove to be loy-al
to one who is faith-ful;
you prove to be trust-wor-thy
to one who is in-no-cent.

You prove to be re-li-a-ble
to one who is blame-less,
but you prove to be de-cep-tive
to one who is per-verse.

For you de-liv-er op-pressed peo-ple,
but you bring down those who have a proud look.
In-deed, you light my lamp, Lord.
My God il-lu-mi-nates the dark-ness a-round me.

In-deed, with your help
I can charge a-gainst an ar-my;
by my God's pow-er
I can jump o-ver a wall.

The one true God acts in a faith-ful man-ner;
the Lords prom-ise is re-li-a-ble;
he is a shield to all who take shel-ter in him.
In-deed, who is God be-sides the Lord?

Who is a pro-tec-tor be-sides our God?
The one true God gives me strength;
he re-moves the ob-sta-cles in my way.
He gives me the a-gil-i-ty of a deer;

he en-a-bles me to ne-go-ti-ate the rug-ged ter-rain.
He trains my hands for bat-tle;
my arms can bend e-ven the strong-est bow.
You give me your pro-tec-tive shield;

your right hand sup-ports me;
your will-ing-ness to help en-a-bles me to pre-vail.
You wid-en my path;
and my feet do not slip.

I chase my en-e-mies and catch them;
I do not turn back until I wipe them out.
I beat them to death;
they all fall at my feet.

You give me strength for bat-tle;
you make my foes kneel be-fore me.
You make my en-e-mies re-treat;
I de-stroy those who hate me.

They cry out, but there is no one to help them;
they cry out to the Lord,
but he does not an-swer them.
I grind them as fine as wind-blown dust;

I beat them un-der-foot;
the are like clay in the street.
You res-cue me from a hos-tile ar-my;
you make me a lead-er of na-tions;

Peo-ple o-ver whom I had no au-thor-i-ty
are now my loy-al sub-jects.
When they hear of my ex-ploits,
they sub-mit them-selves to me.

For-eign-ers are pow-er-less be-fore me;
for-eign-ers lose their cour-age;
they shake with fear as they leave their strong-holds.
The Lord is a-live! My pro-tec-tor is praise-wor-thy!

The God who de-liv-ers me is ex-alt-ed as king!
The one true God com-plete-ly vin-di-cates me;
he makes na-tions sub-mit to me.
He de-liv-ers me from my en-e-mies;

you snatch me a-way from those who at-tack me;
you res-cue me from vio-lent men.
So I will give you thanks
be-fore the na-tions, O Lord!

I will sing prais-es to you!
He gives his king mag-nif-i-cent vic-to-ry;
he is faith-ful to his cho-sen rul-er,
to Da-vid and his de-scen-dants for-ev-er.

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.


Readings



A reading from Matthew 24:1-14


Now as Jesus was going out of the temple courts and walking away, his disciples came to show him the temple buildings. And he said to them, “Do you see all these things? I tell you the truth, not one stone will be left on another. All will be torn down!”

As he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things happen? And what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Watch out that no one misleads you. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will mislead many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. Make sure that you are not alarmed, for this must happen, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these things are the beginning of birth pains.

“Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and will kill you. You will be hated by all the nations because of my name. Then many will be led into sin, and they will betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many, and because lawlessness will increase so much, the love of many will grow cold. But the person who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole inhabited earth as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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 for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.

Amen.





A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Al-might-y 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.
