Tuesday - 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.


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 10


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
Why do you pay no at-ten-tion
dur-ing times of trou-ble?
The wick-ed ar-ro-gant-ly chase the op-pressed;

the op-pressed are trapped
by the schemes the wick-ed have dreamed up.
Yes, the wick-ed man boasts
be-cause he gets what he wants;

the one who robs oth-ers
curs-es and re-jects the Lord.
The wick-ed man is so ar-ro-gant
he al-ways] thinks, God won't hold me ac-count-a-ble;

He does not care.
He is se-cure at all times.
He has no re-gard for your com-mands;
he dis-dains all his en-e-mies.

He says to him-self,
I will nev-er be shak-en,
be-cause I ex-pe-ri-ence no ca-lam-i-ty.
His mouth is full of curs-es

and de-cep-tive, harm-ful words;
his tongue in-jures and de-stroys.
He waits in am-bush near the vil-lag-es;
in hid-den places he kills the in-no-cent.

His eyes look for some un-for-tu-nate vic-tim.
He lies in am-bush in a hid-den place,
like a li-on in a thick-et;
he lies in am-bush, wait-ing to catch the op-pressed;

He catch-es the op-pressed
by pull-ing in his net.
His vic-tims are crushed and beat-en down;
they are trapped in his stur-dy net.

He says to him-self, God o-ver-looks it;
he does not pay at-ten-tion;
he will nev-er no-tice.
Rise up, Lord! O God, strike him down!

Do not for-get the op-pressed!
Why does the wick-ed man re-ject God?
He says to him-self, You will not hold me ac-count-a-ble.
But you have tak-en no-tice,

For you al-ways] see one
who in-flicts pain and suf-fer-ing.
The un-for-tu-nate vic-tim en-trusts his cause to you;
You de-liv-er the fath-er-less.

Break the arm of the wick-ed and e-vil man!
Hold him ac-count-a-ble for his wick-ed deeds,
which he thought you would not dis-cov-er.
The Lord rules for-ev-er!

The na-tions are driv-en out of his land.
Lord, you have heard the re-quest of the op-pressed;
you make them feel se-cure
be-cause you lis-ten to their prayer.

You de-fend the fath-er-less
andtou care for the op-pressed,
so that these wick-ed mere mor-tals
may no long-er ter-ror-ize them.

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.


Psalm 11


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



In the Lord I have tak-en shel-ter.
How can you say to me,
Flee to a moun-tain like a bird!
For look, the wick-ed pre-pare their bows,

they put their ar-rows on the strings,
to shoot in the dark-ness at the mor-al-ly up-right.
When the foun-da-tions are de-stroyed,
what can the god-ly ac-com-plish?

The Lord is in his ho-ly tem-ple;
the Lords throne is in heav-en.
His eyes watch; his eyes ex-am-ine all peo-ple.
The Lord ap-proves of the god-ly,

but he hates the wick-ed
and those who love to do vio-lence.
May he rain down burn-ing coals
and brim-stone on the wick-ed!

A whirl-wind is what they de-serve!
Cer-tain-ly the Lord is just;
he re-wards god-ly deeds;
the up-right will ex-pe-ri-ence his fa-vor.

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 23:13-26


“But woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You keep locking people out of the kingdom of heaven! For you neither enter nor permit those trying to enter to go in.

“Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You cross land and sea to make one convert, and when you get one, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves!

“Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple is bound by nothing. But whoever swears by the gold of the temple is bound by the oath. ’Blind fools! Which is greater, the gold or the temple that makes the gold sacred? And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar is bound by nothing. But if anyone swears by the gift on it he is bound by the oath. ’You are blind! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred? So whoever swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. And whoever swears by the temple swears by it and the one who dwells in it. And whoever swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and the one who sits on it.

“Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You give a tenth of mint, dill, and cumin, yet you neglect what is more important in the law – justice, mercy, and faithfulness! You should have done these things without neglecting the others. Blind guides! You strain out a gnat yet swallow a camel!

“Woe to you, experts in the law and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup, so that the outside may become clean too!

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of the u-ni-verse, Lord God,

be-cause your just and ho-ly works
have been re-vealed. Al-le-lu-ia, a-men!

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.

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.
