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 Hebrews 11:8-16


By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place he would later receive as an inheritance, and he went out without understanding where he was going. By faith he lived as a foreigner in the promised land as though it were a foreign country, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who were fellow heirs of the same promise. For he was looking forward to the city with firm foundations, whose architect and builder is God. By faith, even though Sarah herself was barren and he was too old, he received the ability to procreate because he regarded the one who had given the promise to be trustworthy. So in fact children were fathered by one man—and this one as good as dead—like the number of stars in the sky and like the innumerable grains of sand on the seashore. These all died in faith without receiving the things promised, but they saw them in the distance and welcomed them and acknowledged that they were strangers and foreigners on the earth. For those who speak in such a way make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. In fact, if they had been thinking of the land that they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they aspire to a better land, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

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 7:14-31


When the feast was half over, Jesus went up to the temple courts and began to teach. Then the Jewish leaders were astonished and said, “How does this man know so much when he has never had formal instruction?” So Jesus replied, “My teaching is not from me, but from the one who sent me. If anyone wants to do God’s will, he will know about my teaching, whether it is from God or whether I speak from my own authority. The person who speaks on his own authority desires to receive honor for himself; the one who desires the honor of the one who sent him is a man of integrity, and there is no unrighteousness in him. Hasn’t Moses given you the law? Yet not one of you keeps the law! Why do you want to kill me?”

The crowd answered, “You’re possessed by a demon! Who is trying to kill you?” Jesus replied, “I performed one miracle and you are all amazed. However, because Moses gave you the practice of circumcision (not that it came from Moses, but from the forefathers), you circumcise a male child on the Sabbath. But if a male child is circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses is not broken, why are you angry with me because I made a man completely well on the Sabbath? Do not judge according to external appearance, but judge with proper judgment.”

Then some of the residents of Jerusalem began to say, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill? Yet here he is, speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to him. Do the ruling authorities really know that this man is the Christ? But we know where this man comes from. Whenever the Christ comes, no one will know where he comes from.”

Then Jesus, while teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “You both know me and know where I come from! And I have not come on my own initiative, but the one who sent me is true. You do not know him, but I know him because I have come from him and he sent me.”

So then they tried to seize Jesus, but no one laid a hand on him because his time had not yet come. Yet many of the crowd believed in him and said, “Whenever the Christ comes, he won’t perform more miraculous signs than this man did, will he?”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
