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.


Friday - 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 106:19-48


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




They made an image of/a calf at Ho-reb,
and wor-shiped a metal i-dol.
They traded their ma-jes-tic God
for the image of an ox that eats grass.

They re-jected the God who de-livered them,
the one who per-formed great deeds in E-gypt,
a-mazing feats in/the land of Ham,
and mighty acts by/the Red Sea.

He threatened to de-stroy them,
but Mo-ses, his chosen one,
inter-ced-ed with him
and turned back his de-structive an-ger.

They re-jected the fruit-ful land;
they did not be-lieve his prom-ise.
They grum-bled in their tents;
they did not o-bey the Lord.

So he made a solemn vow
that he would make them die in/the wilder-ness,
make their de-scendants die a-mong the na-tions,
and scatter them a-mong foreign lands.

They wor-shiped Ba-al of Pe-or,
and ate sacri-fic-es ofered to/the dead.
They made the Lord angry by their ac-tions,
and a plague broke out/a-mong them.

Phineh-as took a stand and inter-vened,
and the plague sub-sid-ed.
This was credit-ed to him as a righteous act
for all gener-a-tions to come.

They made him angry by/the waters of Mer-i-bah,
and Mo-ses suffered be-cause of them,
for they a-roused his tem-per,
and so he spoke rash-ly.

They did not de-stroy the na-tions,
as the Lord had com-manded them to do.
They mixed in with/the na-tions
and learned their pa-gan ways.

They wor-shiped their i-dols,
which be-came a snare to them.
They sacri-ficed their sons and daughters to de-mons.
They shed _ inno-cent blood,

the blood of their sons and daugh-ters,
whom they sacri-ficed to/the i-dols of Ca-naan.
The land was pol-luted by blood-shed.
They were de-filed by their deeds,

They were un-faithful in their ac-tions.
So the Lord was angry with his peo-ple
and de-spised the people who be-long to him.
He handed them over to/the na-tions,

and those who hated them ruled over them.
Their ene-mies op-pressed them;
they were subject to their au-thor-i-ty.
Many times he de-livered them,

but they had a re-bel-lious atti-tude,
and de-graded them-selves by their sin.
Yet he took notice of their dis-tress,
when he heard their cry for help.

He re-membered his cove-nant with them,
and re-lented be-cause of his great loyal love.
He caused all their con-querors to have pity on them.
De-liver us, O Lord, our God!

Gath-er us from a-mong the na-tions!
Then we will give you thanks,
sing-iing praise to your holy name,
and boast-ing a-bout your praise-worthy deeds.

The Lord God of Is-ra-el de-serves praise,
in the future and for-ever-more.
Let all the people say,
We a-gree! Praise the Lord!

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 14:13-23


Therefore we must not pass judgment on one another, but rather determine never to place an obstacle or a trap before a brother or sister. I know and am convinced in the Lord Jesus that there is nothing unclean in itself; still, it is unclean to the one who considers it unclean. For if your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. Do not destroy by your food someone for whom Christ died. Therefore do not let what you consider good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. For the one who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by people.

So then, let us pursue what makes for peace and for building up one another. Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. For although all things are clean, it is wrong to cause anyone to stumble by what you eat. It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything that causes your brother to stumble. The faith you have, keep to yourself before God. Blessed is the one who does not judge himself by what he approves. But the man who doubts is condemned if he eats, because he does not do so from faith, and whatever is not from faith is sin.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw water with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to/the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-member that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of 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.


A reading from Luke 8:40-56


Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him because they were all waiting for him. Then a man named Jairus, who was a leader of the synagogue, came up. Falling at Jesus’ feet, he pleaded with him to come to his house, because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying.

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds pressed around him. Now a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years but could not be healed by anyone. She came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and at once the bleeding stopped. Then Jesus asked, “Who was it who touched me?” When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are surrounding you and pressing against you!” But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I know that power has gone out from me.” When the woman saw that she could not escape notice, she came trembling and fell down before him. In the presence of all the people, she explained why she had touched him and how she had been immediately healed. Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue leader’s house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” But when Jesus heard this, he told him, “Do not be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” Now when he came to the house, Jesus did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, and James, and the child’s father and mother. Now they were all wailing and mourning for her, but he said, “Stop your weeping; she is not dead but asleep!” And they began making fun of him because they knew that she was dead. But Jesus gently took her by the hand and said, “Child, get up.” Her spirit returned, and she got up immediately. Then he told them to give her something to eat. Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them to tell no one what had happened.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
