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 85


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, you showed fa-vor to your land;
you re-stored the well-be-ing of Ja-cob.
You par-doned the wrong-do-ing of your peo-ple;
you for-gave all their sin.

You with-drew all your fu-ry;
you turned back from your rag-ing an-ger.
Re-store us, O God our de-liv-er-er!
Do not be dis-pleased with us!

Will you stay mad at us for-ev-er?
Will you re-main an-gry through-out fu-ture gen-er-a-tions?
Will you not re-vive us once more?
Then your peo-ple will re-joice in you!

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
Be-stow on us your de-liv-er-ance!
I will lis-ten to what God the Lord says.
For he will make peace with his peo-ple, his faith-ful fol-low-ers.

Yet they must not re-turn to their fool-ish ways.
Cer-tain-ly his loy-al fol-low-ers will soon ex-pe-ri-ence his de-liv-er-ance;
then his splen-dor will a-gain ap-pear in our land.
Loy-al love and faith-ful-ness meet;

De-liv-er-ance and peace greet each oth-er with a kiss.
Faith-ful-ness grows from the ground,
and de-liv-er-ance looks down from the sky.
Yes, the Lord will be-stow his good bles-sing,

O Lord, show us your loy-al love!
And our land will yield its crops.
De-liv-er-ance goes be-fore him,
and pre-pares a path-way for him.

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 86


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lis-ten O Lord! An-swer me!
For I am op-pressed and need-y.
Pro-tect me, for I am loy-al! You are my God;
de-liv-er your serv-ant who trusts in you!

Have mer-cy on me, O Lord,
for I cry out to you all day long!
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, O Lord, I pray!

Cer-tain-ly O Lord, you are kind and for-giv-ing,
and show great faith-ful-ness to all who cry out to you.
O Lord, hear my prayer!
Pay at-ten-tion to my plea for mer-cy!

In my time of trou-ble I cry out to you,
for you will an-swer me.
None can com-pare to you a-mong the gods, O Lord!
Your ex-ploits are in-com-pa-ra-ble!

All the na-tions, whom you cre-at-ed,
will come and wor-ship you, O Lord.
They will ho-nor your name.
For you are great and do a-maz-ing things.

You a-lone are God.
O Lord, teach me how you want me to live!
Then I will o-bey your com-mands.
Make me whole-heart-ed-ly com-mit-ted to you!

O Lord, my God, I will give you thanks with my whole heart!
I will ho-nor your name con-tin-ual-ly!
For you will ex-tend your great loy-al love to me,
and will de-liv-er my life from the depths of She-ol.

O God, ar-ro-gant men at-tack me;
a gang of ruth-less men, who do not re-spect you, seek my life.
But you, O Lord, are a com-pas-sion-ate and mer-ci-ful God.
You are pa-tient and dem-on-strate great loy-al love and faith-ful-ness.

Turn toward me and have mer-cy on me!
Give your serv-ant your strength!
De-liv-er this child of your fe-male serv-ant!
Show me ev-i-dence of your fa-vor!

Then those who hate me will see it and be a-shamed,
for you, O Lord, will help me and com-fort me.
Make your serv-ant glad,
for to you, O Lord, I pray!

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 19:11-20


God was performing extraordinary miracles by Paul’s hands, so that when even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his body were brought to the sick, their diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them. But some itinerant Jewish exorcists tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were possessed by evil spirits, saying, “I sternly warn you by Jesus whom Paul preaches. ” (Now seven sons of a man named Sceva, a Jewish high priest, were doing this. ) But the evil spirit replied to them, “I know about Jesus and I am acquainted with Paul, but who are you?” Then the man who was possessed by the evil spirit jumped on them and beat them all into submission. He prevailed against them so that they fled from that house naked and wounded. This became known to all who lived in Ephesus, both Jews and Greeks; fear came over them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was praised. Many of those who had believed came forward, confessing and making their deeds known. Large numbers of those who had practiced magic collected their books and burned them up in the presence of everyone. When the value of the books was added up, it was found to total fifty thousand silver coins. In this way the word of the Lord continued to grow in power and to prevail.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I will sing to the Lord,
for he is loft-y and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my peo-ple and I will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a might-y war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his ho-ly Name.
The char-i-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The fin-est of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fa-thom-less deep has o-ver-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord,
is glo-ri-ous and might-y;
your right hand, O Lord,
has o-ver-thrown the en-e-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
O Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glo-ri-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the peo-ple you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your ho-ly dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, O Lord,

In the sanc-tu-ar-y, O Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ev-er and for ev-er. A-men!

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 Luke 4:14-30


Then Jesus, in the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and news about him spread throughout the surrounding countryside. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by all.

Now Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.

He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives

and the regaining of sight to the blind,

to set free those who are oppressed,

to proclaim the year of the Lords favor.”

Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to tell them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” All were speaking well of him, and were amazed at the gracious words coming out of his mouth. They said, “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” Jesus said to them, “No doubt you will quote to me the proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ and say, ‘What we have heard that you did in Capernaum, do here in your hometown too.’” And he added, “I tell you the truth, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown. But in truth I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s days, when the sky was shut up three and a half years, and there was a great famine over all the land. Yet Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to a woman who was a widow at Zarephath in Sidon. And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, yet none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.” When they heard this, all the people in the synagogue were filled with rage. They got up, forced him out of the town, and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff. But he passed through the crowd and went on his way.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Prayers



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 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.

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.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

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.

Amen.





A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom

Al-might-y God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time
