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 holi-ness;
let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as in-cense,
the lifting up of my hands as the eve-ning sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after 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.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Sunday - O Gracious Light


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O gra-cious light, pure bright-ness
of the ever-liv-ing Fath-er in heav-en,
O Je-sus Christ, holy and bless-ed!
we sing your prais-es, O God!

Now as we come to/the setting 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 worthy at all times
to be praised by happy voic-es,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glori-fied through all the worlds.


Psalms



Psalm 8


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, our Lord, how mag-nif-i-cent
is your repu-ta-tion through-out the earth!
You re-veal your majes-ty in/the heavens a-bove!
From the mouths of children and nurs-ing ba-bies

You have or-dained praise on/ac-count of your ad-ver-sar-ies,
so that you might put/an end to/the vin-dic-tive ene-mies.
When I look up at/the heavens, which your fin-gers made,
and see the moon and/the stars, which you set in place,

Of what im-por-tance is the hu-man race,
that you should no-tice them?
Of what im-por-tance is man-kind,
that you should pay at-ten-tion to them?

You made them a little less than the heaven-ly be-ings.
You crowned man-kind with honor and maj-es-ty.
you ap-point them to rule over your cre-a-tion;
you have placed every-thing under their au-thor-i-ty,

in-cluding all the sheep and cat-tle,
as well as the wild ani-mals,
the birds in/the sky, the fish in/the sea
and every-thing that moves through the currents of/the sea.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for ever A-men.


Psalm 84


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



How lovely is the place where you live,
O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my!
I desper-ate-ly want to be
in the courts of/the Lord's tem-ple.

My heart and my en-tire be-ing
shout for joy to/the liv-ing God.
Even the birds find/a home there,
and the swal-low builds a nest,

where she can pro-tect her young
near your al-tar, O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my,
my king and my God.
How blessed are those who live in your tem-ple

and praise you con-tin-ual-ly!
How blessed are those who find their strength in you,
and long to travel the roads
that lead to your tem-ple!

As they pass through the Ba-ca Val-ley,
he pro-vides a spring for them.
The rain even covers it with pools of wat-er.
They are sus-tained as they travel a-long;

each one ap-pears be-fore God in Zi-on.
O Lord God of Heaven's Ar-my, hear my prayer!
List-en, O God of Ja-cob, and no-tice our shield!
Show con-cern for your cho-sen king!

Certain-ly spending just one day
in the courts of your tem-ple
is better than spending a thou-sand days
any-where _ else on/the earth.

I would rather stand be-fore the tem-ple of my God
than live in/the tents of/the wick-ed.
For the Lord God is our sovereign pro-tec-tor.
The Lord be-stows favor and hon-or;

he with-holds no good thing
from those who have in-tegri-ty.
O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my,
how blessed are those who trust in you!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from Ephesians 6:10-20


Finally, be strengthened in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens. For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. Stand firm therefore, by fastening the belt of truth around your waist, by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, by fitting your feet with the preparation that comes from the good news of peace, and in all of this, by taking up the shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). With every prayer and petition, pray at all times in the Spirit, and to this end be alert, with all perseverance and petitions for all the saints. Pray for me also, that I may be given the right words when I begin to speak—that I may confidently make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may be able to speak boldly as I ought to speak.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will sing to/the Lord,
for he is lofty 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 people and I will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a mighty war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his holy Name.
The chari-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The finest of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in/the Red Sea.
The fathom-less deep has over-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord,
is glori-ous and might-y;
your right hand, O Lord,
has over-thrown the ene-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
O Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glori-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 people you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your holy 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-ary, O Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ever and for ever. A-men!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for ever A-men.


A reading from John 3:16-21


For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. The one who believes in him is not condemned. The one who does not believe has been condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. Now this is the basis for judging: that the light has come into the world and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil deeds hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. But the one who practices the truth comes to the light, so that it may be plainly evident that his deeds have been done in God.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Prayers



Sunday Creed

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heaven and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,

He suffered under Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cruci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scended to/the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scended into heav-en,
and is seated at/the right hand of/the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the living and the dead.
We be-lieve in/the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the _ holy catho-lic Church,

and the life ever-last-ing. A-men.

Amen.

Amen.

Al-might-y God,
