Tuesday - Evensong Invitation

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 36


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




An evil man is re-bel-lious to/the core,
and He does not fear God,
for he is too proud
to recog-nize and give up his sin.

The words he speaks are sinful and de-ceit-ful;
he does not care a-bout doing what is wise and right.
He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed;
he is com-mitted to a sinful life-style;

he does not re-ject what is e-vil.
O Lord, your loyal love reaches to/the sky;
your faithful-ness to/the clouds.
Your jus-tice is like the highest moun-tains,

Your fair-ness is like the deepest sea;
you, Lord, pre-serve man-kind and the ani-mal king-dom.
How pre-cious is your loyal love, O God!
The human race finds shelter under your wings.

They are filled with food from your house,
and you al-low them to drink from/the riv-er of your deli-ca-cy.
For with you is the foun-tain of life;
in your light we see light.

Ex-tend your loyal love to your faithful follow-ers,
and vindi-cate the moral-ly up-right!
Do not let arro-gant men over-take me,
or let evil men make me home-less!

They have fall-en!
I can see the evil-do-ers!
They have been knocked down
and are un-able to get up!

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 39


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I de-cided, I will watch what I say
and make sure I don't sin with my tongue.
I will put a muzzle over my mouth
while in/the pres-ence of an evil man.

I was stone si-lent;
I held back the urge to speak.
My frus-tra-tion grew;
my anx-ie-ty in-tensi-fied.

As I thought a-bout it, I be-came im-pa-tient.
Fi-nal-ly I spoke these words:
O Lord, help me under-stand my mor-tali-ty
and the brevi-ty of life!

Let me real-ize how quickly my life will pass!
Look, you make my days short-lived,
and my life span is noth-ing
In your per-spec-tive, mere mo-ments.

Sure-ly all peo-ple,
even those who seem se-cure,
are nothing but va-por.
Sure-ly people go through life as mere ghosts.

Sure-ly they ac-cumu-late worth-less wealth
without knowing who will e-ven-tual-ly haul it a-way.
But now, O Lord, up-on what am I re-ly-ing?
You are my on-ly hope!

De-liver me from all my sins of re-bel-lion!
Do not make me the object of fools' in-sults!
I am si-lent and cannot o-pen my mouth
be-cause of what you have done.

Please stop wounding me!
You have al-most beaten me to death!
You se-vere-ly disci-pline people for their sins;
like a moth you slowly de-vour their strength.

Sure-ly all people are a mere va-por.
So hear my prayer, O Lord!
List-en to my cry for help!
Do not ig-nore my sob-bing!

For I am a foreign resi--dent with you,
a tempo-rar-y set-tler, just/as all my an-ces-tors were.
Turn your an-gry gaze a-way from me,
so I can be happy be-fore I pass a-way.

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 2:1-10


Therefore we must pay closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. For if the message spoken through angels proved to be so firm that every violation or disobedience received its just penalty, how will we escape if we neglect such a great salvation? It was first communicated through the Lord and was confirmed to us by those who heard him, while God confirmed their witness with signs and wonders and various miracles and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

For he did not put the world to come, about which we are speaking, under the control of angels. Instead someone testified somewhere:

“What is man that you think of him or the son of man that you care for him?

You made him lower than the angels for a little while.

You crowned him with glory and honor.

You put all things under his control.”

For when he put all things under his control, he left nothing outside of his control. At present we do not yet see all things under his control, but we see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by God’s grace he would experience death on behalf of everyone. For it was fitting for him, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - 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 wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-passion,
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 heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher 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 giving 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 prosper in that for which I sent it.

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 1:19-28


Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” He confessed – he did not deny but confessed – “I am not the Christ!” So they asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not!” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No!” Then they said to him, “Who are you? Tell us so that we can give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”

John said, “I am the voice of one shouting in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.” (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. ) So they asked John, “Why then are you baptizing if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

John answered them, “I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not recognize, who is coming after me. I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandal!” These things happened in Bethany across the Jordan River where John was baptizing.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
