Invitation



Sunday - 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.


Sunday - 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 103


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise the Lord, O my soul!
With all that is with-in me, praise his ho-ly name!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
Do not for-get all his kind deeds!

He is the one who for-gives all your sins,
who heals all your dis-eas-es,
who de-liv-ers your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with his loy-al love and com-pas-sion,

who sat-is-fies your life with good things,
so your youth is re-newed like an ea-gle.
The Lord does what is fair,
and ex-e-cutes jus-tice for all the op-pressed.

The Lord re-vealed his faith-ful acts to Mo-ses,
his deeds to the Is-rael-ites.
The Lord is com-pas-sion-ate and mer-ci-ful;
he is pa-tient and dem-on-strates great loy-al love.

He does not al-ways ac-cuse,
and does not stay an-gry.
He does not deal with us as our sins de-serve;
he does not re-pay us as our mis-deeds de-serve.

For as the skies are high a-bove the earth,
so his loy-al love tow-ers o-ver his faith-ful fol-low-ers.
As far as the east-ern ho-ri-zon is from the west,
so he re-moves the guilt of our re-bel-lious ac-tions from us.

As a fath-er has com-pas-sion on his chil-dren,
so the Lord has com-pas-sion on his faith-ful fol-low-ers.
For he knows what we are made of;
he real-iz-es we are made of clay.

A per-son's life is like grass.
Like a flow-er in the field it flour-ish-es,
but when the hot wind blows by, it dis-ap-pears,
and one can no long-er spot where it once grew.

But the Lord con-tin-ual-ly shows loy-al love
to his faith-ful fol-low-ers,
and is faith-ful to their de-scend-ants,
to those who keep his cov-e-nant,

who are care-ful to o-bey his com-mands.
The Lord has es-tab-lished his throne in heav-en;
his king-dom ex-tends o-ver eve-ry-thing.
Praise the Lord, you an-gels of his,

you pow-er-ful war-ri-ors
who car-ry out his de-crees
and o-bey his or-ders!
Praise the Lord, all you war-ri-ors of his,

You serv-ants of his who car-ry out his de-sires!
Praise the Lord, all that he has made,
in all the re-gions of his king-dom!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!

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 1 Corinthians 10:15-24


I am speaking to thoughtful people. Consider what I say. Is not the cup of blessing that we bless a sharing in the blood of Christ? Is not the bread that we break a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all share the one bread. Look at the people of Israel. Are not those who eat the sacrifices partners in the altar? Am I saying that idols or food sacrificed to them amount to anything? No, I mean that what the pagans sacrifice is to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be partners with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot take part in the table of the Lord and the table of demons. Or are we trying to provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we really stronger than he is?

“Everything is lawful,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is lawful,” but not everything builds others up. Do not seek your own good, but the good of the other person.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Seek the Lord while he wills to be found;
call up-on him when he draws near.
Let the wick-ed for-sake their ways
and the e-vil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to the Lord,
and he will have com-pas-sion,
Let then re-turn to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heav-ens are high-er than the earth,
so are my ways high-er than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heav-ens
and re-turns not a-gain,
but wat-ers the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giv-ing a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread and fruit for eat-ing,

So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not re-turn to me emp-ty;
But it will ac-com-plish that which I have pur-posed,
and pros-per in that for which I sent it.

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 18:15-20


“If your brother sins, go and show him his fault when the two of you are alone. If he listens to you, you have regained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others with you, so that at the testimony of two or three witnesses every matter may be established. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. If he refuses to listen to the church, treat him like a Gentile or a tax collector.

“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will have been bound in heaven, and whatever you release on earth will have been released in heaven. Again, I tell you the truth, if two of you on earth agree about whatever you ask, my Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three are assembled in my name, I am there among them.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Prayers



Sunday 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.

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

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
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

grant-ing us in this world knowl-edge of your truth,
and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
