Monday - 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.


Monday - 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 64


Tenor     Soprano     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     Response     




List-en to me, O God, as I offer my la-ment!
Pro-tect my life from/the ene-my's terri-fy-ing at-tack.
Hide me from/the plots of evil men,
from the crowd of e-vil-do-ers.

They sharpen their tongues like a sword;
they aim their arrow, a slander-ous charge,
in order to shoot down the inno-cent in se-cluded plac-es.
They shoot at him sudden-ly and are una-fraid of re-tali-a-tion.

They en-courage one an-other to carry out their evil deeds.
They plan how to hide snares, and boast,
Who will see them?
They de-vise un-just schemes;

They dis-guise a well con-ceived plot.
Man's inner thoughts can't be dis-co-vered.
But God will shoot at them;
sudden-ly they will be wounded by an ar-row.

Their slander will bring a-bout their de-mise.
All who see them will shud-der,
and all people will fear.
They will pro-claim what God has done,

And re-flect on his deeds.
The god-ly will re-joice in/the Lord
and take shelter in him.
All the moral-ly up-right will boast.

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 65


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Praise a-waits you, O God, in Zi-on.
Vows made to you are ful-filled.
You hear our prayers;
all _ people ap-proach you.

Our re-cord of sins over-whelms me,
but you for-give our acts of re-bel-lion.
How blessed is the one whom you choose,
and al-low to live in your pal-ace court.

May we be sat-is-fied
with the good things of your house, your holy pal-ace.
You an-swer our prayers
by per-form-ing awe-some acts of de-liver-ance,

O God, our sav-ior.
All the ends of/the earth trust in you,
As well as those liv-ing a-cross the wide sea.
You cre-at-ed the mountains by your power,

And dem-on-strat-ed your strength.
You calm the raging seas and their roar-ing waves,
As well as the com-mo-tion made by/the na-tions.
E-ven those in/the most re-mote ar-e-as are awe-struck by your acts;

You cause those liv-ing in/the east and west to praise you.
You vis-it the earth and give it rain;
You make it rich and fer-tile.
God's streams are full of wat-er;

You pro-vide grain for them,
for you have pre-pared the earth in this way.
You sat-u-rate its fur-rows, and soak-ing its plowed ground.
With rain show-ers you sof-ten its soil,

You make its crops grow.
You crown the year with your good bles-sing,
and you leave a-bun-dance in your wake.
The pas-tures in/the wil-der-ness glist-en with moist-ure,

And the hills are clothed with joy.
The mead-ows are clothed with sheep,
and the val-leys are cov-ered with grain.
They shout joy-ful-ly, yes, they sing.

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 Romans 1:1-15


From Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God. This gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, concerning his Son who was a descendant of David with reference to the flesh, who was appointed the Son-of-God-in-power according to the Holy Spirit by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we have received grace and our apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles on behalf of his name. You also are among them, called to belong to Jesus Christ. To all those loved by God in Rome, called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!

First of all, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the whole world. For God, whom I serve in my spirit by preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness that I continually remember you and I always ask in my prayers, if perhaps now at last I may succeed in visiting you according to the will of God. For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you, that is, that we may be mutually comforted by one another’s faith, both yours and mine. I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I often intended to come to you (and was prevented until now), so that I may have some fruit even among you, just as I already have among the rest of the Gentiles. I am a debtor both to the Greeks and to the barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. Thus I am eager also to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-light-en the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 4:27-42


Now at that very moment his disciples came back. They were shocked because he was speaking with a woman. However, no one said, “What do you want?” or “Why are you speaking with her?” Then the woman left her water jar, went off into the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Surely he can’t be the Messiah, can he?” So they left the town and began coming to him.

Meanwhile the disciples were urging him, “Rabbi, eat something.” But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” So the disciples began to say to one another, “No one brought him anything to eat, did they?” Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of the one who sent me and to complete his work. Don’t you say, ‘There are four more months and then comes the harvest?’ I tell you, look up and see that the fields are already white for harvest! The one who reaps receives pay and gathers fruit for eternal life, so that the one who sows and the one who reaps can rejoice together. For in this instance the saying is true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ I sent you to reap what you did not work for; others have labored and you have entered into their labor.”

Now many Samaritans from that town believed in him because of the report of the woman who testified, “He told me everything I ever did.” So when the Samaritans came to him, they began asking him to stay with them. He stayed there two days, and because of his word many more believed. They said to the woman, “No longer do we believe because of your words, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this one really is the Savior of the world.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,

and will be for-ever A-men.

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,

He a-scended into heav-en,
and is seated at/the right hand of/the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain

Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth: We humbly pray that your gracious providence may give and preserve to our use the harvests of the land and of the seas, and may prosper all who labor to gather them, that we, who are constantly receiving good things from your hand, may always give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Peace

Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgements, and all just works: Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give, so that our minds may be fixed on the doing of your will, and that we, being delivered from the fear of all enemies, may live in peace and quietness; through the mercies of Christ Jesus our Savior.

Amen.
