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.


Saturday - 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 110


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Here is the Lord's proc-la-ma-tion to my lord:
Sit down at my right hand
un-til I make your en-e-mies your foot-stool!
The Lord ex-tends your do-min-ion from Zi-on.

Rule in the midst of your en-e-mies!
Your peo-ple will-ing-ly fol-low you
when you go into bat-tle.
On the ho-ly hills at sun-rise

the dew of your youth be-longs to you.
The Lord makes this prom-ise on oath
and will not re-voke it:
You are an e-ter-nal priest

af-ter the pat-tern of Mel-chi-ze-dek.
O Lord, at your right hand he strikes down kings
in the day he un-leash-es his an-ger.
He ex-e-cutes judg-ment a-gainst the na-tions;

he fills the val-leys with corps-es;
he shat-ters their heads o-ver the vast bat-tle-field.
From the stream a-long the road he drinks;
then he lifts up his head.

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 116


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I love the Lord
be-cause he heard my plea for mer-cy,
and list-ened to me.
As long as I live, I will call to him when I need help.

The ropes of death tight-ened a-round me,
the snares of She-ol con-front-ed me.
I was con-front-ed with trou-ble and sor-row.
I called on the name of the Lord,

Please Lord, res-cue my life!
The Lord is mer-ci-ful and fair;
our God is com-pas-sion-ate.
The Lord pro-tects the un-trained;

I was in se-ri-ous trou-ble
and he de-liv-ered me.
Rest once more, my soul,
for the Lord has vin-di-cat-ed you.

Yes, Lord, you res-cued my life from death,
kept my eyes from tears and my feet from stum-bling.
I will serve the Lord in the land of the liv-ing.
I had faith when I said, I am se-vere-ly op-pressed.

I rash-ly de-clared, All men are li-ars.
How can I re-pay the Lord
for all his acts of kind-ness to me?
I will cel-e-brate my de-liv-er-ance,

and call on the name of the Lord.
I will ful-fill my vows to the Lord be-fore all his peo-ple.
The Lord val-ues the lives of his faith-ful fol-low-ers.
Yes, Lord! I am in-deed your serv-ant;

I am your serv-ant,
the son of your fe-male serv-ant.
You saved me from death.
I will pre-sent a thank of-fer-ing to you,

and call on the name of the Lord.
I will ful-fill my vows to the Lord be-fore all his peo-ple,
in the courts of the Lord's tem-ple,
in your midst, O Je-ru-sa-lem. Praise the Lord!

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 117


All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass
Praise the Lord, all you na-tions!
Ap-plaud him, all you for-eign-ers!
For his loy-al love tow-ers o-ver us,
and the Lord's faith-ful-ness en-dures. Praise the Lord!

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 Acts 11:1-18


Now the apostles and the brothers who were throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles too had accepted the word of God. So when Peter went up to Jerusalem, the circumcised believers took issue with him, saying, “You went to uncircumcised men and shared a meal with them. ” But Peter began and explained it to them point by point, saying, “I was in the city of Joppa praying, and in a trance I saw a vision, an object something like a large sheet descending, being let down from heaven by its four corners, and it came to me. As I stared I looked into it and saw four-footed animals of the earth, wild animals, reptiles, and wild birds. I also heard a voice saying to me, ‘Get up, Peter; slaughter and eat!’ But I said, ‘Certainly not, Lord, for nothing defiled or ritually unclean has ever entered my mouth!’ But the voice replied a second time from heaven, ‘What God has made clean, you must not consider ritually unclean!’ This happened three times, and then everything was pulled up to heaven again. At that very moment, three men sent to me from Caesarea approached the house where we were staying. The Spirit told me to accompany them without hesitation. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man’s house. He informed us how he had seen an angel standing in his house and saying, ‘Send to Joppa and summon Simon, who is called Peter, who will speak a message to you by which you and your entire household will be saved. ’ Then as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell on them just as he did on us at the beginning. And I remembered the word of the Lord, as he used to say, ‘John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit. ’ Therefore if God gave them the same gift as he also gave us after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I to hinder God?” When they heard this, they ceased their objections and praised God, saying, “So then, God has granted the repentance that leads to life even to the Gentiles. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my strong-hold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw wa-ter with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-mem-ber that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the prais-es of the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-hab-it-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of 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.


A reading from John 8:12-20


Then Jesus spoke out again, “I am the light of the world! The one who follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” So the Pharisees objected, “You testify about yourself; your testimony is not true!” Jesus answered, “Even if I testify about myself, my testimony is true, because I know where I came from and where I am going. But you people do not know where I came from or where I am going. You people judge by outward appearances; I do not judge anyone. But if I judge, my evaluation is accurate, because I am not alone when I judge, but I and the Father who sent me do so together. It is written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. I testify about myself and the Father who sent me testifies about me.”

Then they began asking him, “Who is your father?” Jesus answered, “You do not know either me or my Father. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” (Jesus spoke these words near the offering box while he was teaching in the temple courts. No one seized him because his time had not yet come.)

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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

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,

Al-might-y 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

and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
