Tuesday - 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.


Tuesday - 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 68


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




God springs into ac-tion!
His _ ene-mies scat-ter;
his adver-saries run from him.
As smoke is driven a-way by/the wind,

So you drive them a-way.
As wax melts be-fore fire,
so the wicked are de-stroyed be-fore God.
But the god-ly are hap-py;

They re-joice be-fore God
and are over-come with joy.
Sing to God! Sing praises to his name!
Ex-alt the one who rides on/the clouds!

For the Lord is his name!
Re-joice be-fore the Lord!
He is a fath-er to/the fath-er-less
and an advo-cate for wid-ows.

God rules from his holy dwell-ing place.
God set-tles those who have been de-serted in their own home;
he frees prison-ers and grants them pros-peri-ty.
But sinful rebels live in/the de-sert.

O God, when you lead your people into bat-tle,
when you march through the waste-land,
the earth shakes, yes,
the heavens pour down rain be-fore God,

The God of Si-nai,
be-fore God, the God of Is-ra-el.
O God, you cause a-bundant show-ers
to fall on your chosen peo-ple.

When they are tired, you sus-tain them,
for you live a-mong them.
You sus-tain the op-pressed
with your good blessing, O God.

The Lord speaks; many, many women spread the good news.
Kings leading ar-mies run a-way!
They run a-way!
The lady of/the house di-vides the spoils.

When you lie down a-mong the sheep-fold,
the wings of/the dove are covered with sil-ver
and with glitter]-ing gold.
When the Sove-reign One scatters kings,

Let it snow on Zal-mon!
The mountain of Ba-shan is a tow-er-ing moun-tain;
the mountain of Ba-shan is a mountain with many peaks.
Why do you look with en-vy, O mountains with many peaks,

At/the mountain where God has de-cided to live?
In-deed the Lord will live there perma-nent-ly!
God has count-less char-i-ots;
they _ number in/the thou-sands.

The Lord comes from Si-nai in holy splen-dor.
You as-cend on high, you have taken many cap-tives.
You re-ceive trib-ute from men,
in-cluding even sinful re-bel.

In-deed the Lord God lives there!
The Lord de-serves our praise!
Day af-ter day he carries our bur-dens,
the God who de-livers us.

Our God is a God who de-liv-ers;
the Lord, the sovereign Lord, can res-cue from death.
In-deed God strikes the heads of his ene-mies,
the hairy fore-heads of those who per-sist in re-bel-lion.

The Lord says, I will re-trieve them from Ba-shan,
I will bring them back from/the depths of/the sea,
so that your feet may stomp in their blood,
and your dogs may eat their portion of/the ene-mies'' corps-es.

They see your pro-ces-sions, O God
the pro-ces-sions of my God, my king,
who marches a-long in holy splen-dor.
Sing-ers walk in front; mu-si-cians follow

Play-ing their stringed in-stru-ments,
in the midst of young women playing tam-bou-rines.
In your large as-sem-blies praise God,
Praise the Lord, in/the as-sem-blies of Is-ra-el!

There is little Benja-min, their rul-er,
and the princes of Ju-dah in their robes,
a-long with/the princes of Zeb-ul-un
and the princes of Naph-ta-li.

God has de-creed that you will be power-ful.
O God, you who have acted on our be-half,
demon-strate your power.
Be-cause of your tem-ple in Je-ru-sa-lem,

Kings bring trib-ute to you.
Sound your bat-tle cry a-gainst the wild beast of/the reed,
and the na-tions that as-sem-ble
like a herd of calves led by bulls!

They hum-ble them-selves
and offer gold and silver as trib-ute.
God scatters the na-tions
that like to do bat-tle.

They come with red cloth from E-gypt,
E-thi-o-pi-a volun-tar-ly of-fers trib-ute to God.
O kingdoms of/the earth, sing to God!
Sing _ _ praises to/the Lord,

To the one who rides through the sky from an-cient times!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's power,
his sovereign-ty over Is-ra-el,

And the power he re-veals in/the sky!
You are awe-in-spir-ing, O God,
as you e-merge from your holy tem-ple!
It is the God of Is-ra-el who gives the people power and strength.

God de-serves praise!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's power,
his sovereign-ty over Is-ra-el,

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 1:16-25


For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is God’s power for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For the righteousness of God is revealed in the gospel from faith to faith, just as it is written, “The righteous by faith will live. ”

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth by their unrighteousness, because what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings or birds or four-footed animals or reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor their bodies among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to/the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zi-on of/the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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 4:43-54


After the two days he departed from there to Galilee. (For Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country.) So when he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him because they had seen all the things he had done in Jerusalem at the feast (for they themselves had gone to the feast).

Now he came again to Cana in Galilee where he had made the water wine. In Capernaum there was a certain royal official whose son was sick. When he heard that Jesus had come back from Judea to Galilee, he went to him and begged him to come down and heal his son, who was about to die. So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders you will never believe!” “Sir,” the official said to him, “come down before my child dies.” Jesus told him, “Go home; your son will live.” The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him, and set off for home.

While he was on his way down, his slaves met him and told him that his son was going to live. So he asked them the time when his condition began to improve, and they told him, “Yesterday at one o’clock in the afternoon the fever left him.” Then the father realized that it was the very time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he himself believed along with his entire household. Jesus did this as his second miraculous sign when he returned from Judea to Galilee.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - You are God

You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the powers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of a-postles praises you.
The no-ble fellow-ship of proph-ets praises you.
The white-robed army of mar-tyrs praises you.
Through-out the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and only Son, worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, advo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of/the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You over-came the sting of death
and o-pened the kingdom of heaven to all be-liev-ers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with/the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ever-last-ing.
