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.


Tuesday - 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 68


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



God springs into ac-tion!
His en-e-mies scat-ter;
his ad-ver-sar-ies run from him.
As smoke is driv-en a-way by the wind,

So you drive them a-way.
As wax melts be-fore fire,
so the wick-ed are de-stroyed be-fore God.
But the god-ly are hap-py;

They re-joice be-fore God
and are o-ver-come with joy.
Sing to God! Sing prais-es to his name!
Ex-alt the one who rides on the clouds!

For the Lord is his name!
Re-joice be-fore the Lord!
He is a fath-er to the fath-er-less
and an ad-vo-cate for wid-ows.

God rules from his ho-ly dwell-ing place.
God set-tles those who have been de-sert-ed in their own home;
he frees pris-on-ers and grants them pros-per-i-ty.
But sin-ful re-bels live in the de-sert.

O God, when you lead your peo-ple into bat-tle,
when you march through the waste-land,
the earth shakes, yes,
the heav-ens pour down rain be-fore God,

The God of Si-nai,
be-fore God, the God of Is-ra-el.
O God, you cause a-bun-dant show-ers
to fall on your cho-sen peo-ple.

When they are tired, you sus-tain them,
for you live a-mong them.
You sus-tain the op-pressed
with your good bles-sing, O God.

The Lord speaks; many, many women spread the good news.
Kings lead-ing ar-mies run a-way!
They run a-way!
The love-ly la-dy of the house di-vides up the spoils.

When you lie down a-mong the sheep-fold,
the wings of the dove are cov-ered with sil-ver
and with glit-ter-ing gold.
When the Sove-reign One scat-ters kings,

Let it snow on Zal-mon!
The moun-tain of Ba-shan is a tow-er-ing moun-tain;
the moun-tain of Ba-shan is a moun-tain with man-y peaks.
Why do you look with en-vy, O moun-tains with man-y peaks,

At the moun-tain where God has de-cid-ed to live?
In-deed the Lord will live there per-ma-nent-ly!
God has count-less char-i-ots;
they num-ber in the thou-sands.

The Lord comes from Si-nai in ho-ly splen-dor.
You as-cend on high, you have tak-en many cap-tives.
You re-ceive trib-ute from men,
in-clud-ing e-ven sin-ful re-bel.

In-deed the Lord God lives there!
The Lord de-serves our praise!
Day af-ter day he car-ries our bur-dens,
the God who de-liv-ers us.

Our God is a God who de-liv-ers;
the Lord, the sove-reign Lord, can res-cue from death.
In-deed God strikes the heads of his en-e-mies,
the hair-y fore-heads of those who per-sist in re-bel-lion.

The Lord says, I will re-trieve them from Ba-shan,
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,
so that your feet may stomp in their blood,
and your dogs may eat their por-tion of the en-e-mies'' corps-es.

They see your pro-ces-sions, O God
the pro-ces-sions of my God, my king,
who march-es a-long in ho-ly splen-dor.
Sing-ers walk in front; mu-si-cians fol-low

Play-ing their stringed in-stru-ments,
in the midst of young women play-ing tam-bou-rines.
In your large as-sem-blies praise God,
Praise the Lord, in the as-sem-blies of Is-ra-el!

There is lit-tle Ben-ja-min, their rul-er,
and the princ-es of Ju-dah in their robes,
a-long with the princ-es of Zeb-ul-un
and the princ-es of Naph-ta-li.

God has de-creed that you will be pow-er-ful.
O God, you who have act-ed on our be-half,
dem-on-strate your pow-er.
Be-cause of your tem-ple in Je-ru-sa-lem,

Kings bring trib-ute to you.
Sound your bat-tle cry a-gainst the wild beast of the reed,
and the na-tions that as-sem-ble
like a herd of calves led by bulls!

They hum-ble them-selves
and of-fer gold and sil-ver as trib-ute.
God scat-ters the na-tions
that like to do bat-tle.

They come with red cloth from E-gypt,
E-thi-o-pi-a vol-un-tar-i-ly of-fers trib-ute to God.
O king-doms of the earth, sing to God!
Sing prais-es to the Lord,

To the one who rides through the sky from an-cient times!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

And the pow-er he re-veals in the sky!
You are awe-in-spir-ing, O God,
as you e-merge from your ho-ly tem-ple!
It is the God of Is-ra-el who gives the peo-ple pow-er and strength.

God de-serves praise!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

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 Romans 16:17-27


Now I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who create dissensions and obstacles contrary to the teaching that you learned. Avoid them! For these are the kind who do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By their smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of the naive. Your obedience is known to all and thus I rejoice over you. But I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. The God of peace will quickly crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Timothy, my fellow worker, greets you; so do Lucius, Jason, and Sosipater, my compatriots. I, Tertius, who am writing this letter, greet you in the Lord. Gaius, who is host to me and to the whole church, greets you. Erastus the city treasurer and our brother Quartus greet you.

Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that had been kept secret for long ages, but now is disclosed, and through the prophetic scriptures has been made known to all the nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith – to the only wise God, through Jesus Christ, be glory forever! Amen.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-at-ed eve-ry-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-at-ed and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fam-i-ly, lan-guage, peo-ple, and na-tion,
a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for ev-er and for ev-er-more.

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 27:32-44


As they were going out, they found a man from Cyrene named Simon, whom they forced to carry his cross. They came to a place called Golgotha (which means “Place of the Skull”) and offered Jesus wine mixed with gall to drink. But after tasting it, he would not drink it. When they had crucified him, they divided his clothes by throwing dice. Then they sat down and kept guard over him there. Above his head they put the charge against him, which read: “This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.” Then two outlaws were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. Those who passed by defamed him, shaking their heads and saying, “You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are God’s Son, come down from the cross!” In the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law and elders – were mocking him: “He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down now from the cross, we will believe in him! He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now because he said, ‘I am God’s Son’!” The robbers who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     






A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glo-ry of the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness co-vers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But o-ver you the Lord will rise,
and his glo-ry will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will nev-er be shut.
They will call you, The Cit-y of the Lord,
The Zi-on of the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your wall, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will no more be your light by day;
by night you will not need the bright-ness of the moon.
The Lord will be your ev-er-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.


Prayers



Tuesday 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 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.

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.

Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

Give peace, O Lord, in all the world;
For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.

Nor the hope of the poor be tak-en a-way.

And sus-tain us by your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, O Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.

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.
