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 73


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Cer-tain-ly God is good to Is-ra-el,
and to those whose mo-tives are pure!
But as for me, my feet al-most slipped;
my feet al-most slid out from un-der me.

For I en-vied those who are proud,
as I ob-served the pros-per-i-ty of/the wick-ed.
For they suf-fer no pain;
their bod-ies are strong and well-fed.

They are im-mune to/the trou-ble com-mon to men;
they do not suf-fer as other men do.
Ar-ro-gance is their neck-lace,
and vio-lence cov-ers them like cloth-ing.

Their pros-per-i-ty caus-es them to do wrong;
All their thoughts are sin-ful.
They mock and say evil things;
they proud-ly threat-en vio-lence.

They speak as if they rule in heav-en,
and _ lay claim to/the earth.
There-fore they have more than e-nough food to eat,
and e-ven suck up the wat-er of/the sea.

They say, How does God know what we do?
Is the Most High a-ware of what goes on?
Take a good look! This is what the wicked are like,
Those who al-ways have it so eas-y

They get rich-er and rich-er.
Sure-ly in vain I have kept my mo-tives pure
and main-tained a pure life-style.
I suf-fer all day long,

I am punished eve-ry morn-ing.
If I had pub-li-cized these thoughts,
I would have be-trayed your peo-ple.
When I tried to make sense of this,

it was trou-bling to me.
Then I en-tered the pre-cincts of God's tem-ple,
and un-der-stood the desti-ny of/the wick-ed.
Sure-ly you put them in slip-per-y plac-es;

You bring them down to ruin.
How des-o-late they be-come in a mere mo-ment!
Ter-ri-fy-ing judg-ments make their de-mise com-plete!
They are like a dream af-ter one wakes up.

O Lord, when you a-wake you will de-spise them.
Yes, my spi-rit was bit-ter,
and my in-sides felt sharp pain.
I was ig-no-rant and lacked in-sight;

I was as sense-less as an an-i-mal be-fore you.
But I am con-tin-ual-ly with you;
And you hold my right hand.
You guide me by your wise ad-vice,

and then you will lead me
to a po-si-tion of hon-or.
Whom do I have in heaven but you?
I de-sire no one but you on earth.

My flesh and my heart may grow weak,
but God al-ways pro-tects my heart
and gives me sta-bil-i-ty.
Yes, look! Those far from you die;

You de-stroy eve-ry-one who is un-faithful to you.
But as for me, God's pres-ence is all I need.
I have made the Sove-reign Lord my shel-ter,
as I de-clare all the things you have done.

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 Acts 17:1-15


After they traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue. Paul went to the Jews in the synagogue, as he customarily did, and on three Sabbath days he addressed them from the scriptures, explaining and demonstrating that the Christ had to suffer and to rise from the dead, saying, “This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ.” Some of them were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, along with a large group of God-fearing Greeks and quite a few prominent women. But the Jews became jealous, and gathering together some worthless men from the rabble in the marketplace, they formed a mob and set the city in an uproar. They attacked Jason’s house, trying to find Paul and Silas to bring them out to the assembly. When they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brothers before the city officials, screaming, “These people who have stirred up trouble throughout the world have come here too, and Jason has welcomed them as guests! They are all acting against Caesar’s decrees, saying there is another king named Jesus!” They caused confusion among the crowd and the city officials who heard these things. After the city officials had received bail from Jason and the others, they released them.

The brothers sent Paul and Silas off to Berea at once, during the night. When they arrived, they went to the Jewish synagogue. These Jews were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they eagerly received the message, examining the scriptures carefully every day to see if these things were so. Therefore many of them believed, along with quite a few prominent Greek women and men. But when the Jews from Thessalonica heard that Paul had also proclaimed the word of God in Berea, they came there too, inciting and disturbing the crowds. Then the brothers sent Paul away to the coast at once, but Silas and Timothy remained in Berea. Those who accompanied Paul escorted him as far as Athens, and after receiving an order for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they left.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - 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 Mark 7:24-37


After Jesus left there, he went to the region of Tyre. When he went into a house, he did not want anyone to know, but he was not able to escape notice. Instead, a woman whose young daughter had an unclean spirit immediately heard about him and came and fell at his feet. The woman was a Greek, of Syrophoenician origin. She asked him to cast the demon out of her daughter. He said to her, “Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not right to take the children’s bread and to throw it to the dogs.” She answered, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” Then he said to her, “Because you said this, you may go. The demon has left your daughter.” She went home and found the child lying on the bed, and the demon gone.

Then Jesus went out again from the region of Tyre and came through Sidon to the Sea of Galilee in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who had difficulty speaking, and they asked him to place his hands on him. After Jesus took him aside privately, away from the crowd, he put his fingers in the man’s ears, and after spitting, he touched his tongue. Then he looked up to heaven and said with a sigh, “Ephphatha” (that is, “Be opened”). And immediately the man’s ears were opened, his tongue loosened, and he spoke plainly. Jesus ordered them not to tell anyone. But as much as he ordered them not to do this, they proclaimed it all the more. People were completely astounded and said, “He has done everything well. He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

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,
sur-pas-sing human under-stand-ing.

for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near

have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, a-men!

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.


Prayers



Friday Creed

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
to judge the living and the dead.
We be-lieve in/the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the _ holy catho-lic Church,

Amen.
