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 1 John 4:7-21


Dear friends, let us love one another, because love is from God, and everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God. The person who does not love does not know God because God is love. By this the love of God is revealed in us: that God has sent his one and only Son into the world so that we may live through him. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Dear friends, if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another. No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God resides in us, and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we reside in God and he in us: in that he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

If anyone confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God resides in him and he in God. And we have come to know and to believe the love that God has in us. God is love, and the one who resides in love resides in God, and God resides in him. By this love is perfected with us, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment, because just as Jesus is, so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears punishment has not been perfected in love. We love because he loved us first.

If anyone says “I love God” and yet hates his fellow Christian, he is a liar because the one who does not love his fellow Christian whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And the commandment we have from him is this: that the one who loves God should love his fellow Christian too.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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.


A reading from Luke 4:31-37


So he went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and on the Sabbath he began to teach the people. They were amazed at his teaching, because he spoke with authority.

Now in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, “Ha! Leave us alone, Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him: “Silence! Come out of him!” Then, after the demon threw the man down in their midst, he came out of him without hurting him. They were all amazed and began to say to one another, “What’s happening here? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!” So the news about him spread into all areas of the region.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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.
