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 78:40-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




How often they re-belled a-gainst him in/the wilder-ness,
and in-sulted him in/the waste-land!
They a-gain chal-lenged God,
and of-fended the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

They did not re-member what he had done,
how he de-livered them from/the ene-my,
when he per-formed his awe-some deeds in E-gypt,
and his acts of judg-ment in/the re-gion of Zoan.

He turned their riv-ers into blood,
and they could not drink from their streams.
He sent swarms of biting in-sects a-gainst them,
as well as frogs that over-ran their land.

He gave their crops to/the grass-hop-pers,
the fruit of their labor to/the lo-custs.
He de-stroyed their vines with hail,
and their syca-more fig trees with driv-ing rain.

He rained hail down on their cat-tle,
and hurled lightning bolts down on their live-stock.
His raging an-ger lashed out a-gainst them,
He sent fury, rage, and trou-ble

as messen-gers who bring dis-as-ter.
He sent his an-ger in full force;
he did not spare them from death;
he handed their lives over to de-struc-tion.

He struck down all/the first-born in E-gypt,
the first fruits of their repro-duc-tive power in/the tents of Ham.
Yet he brought out his people like sheep;
he led them through the wilder-ness like a flock.

He guided them safe-ly a-long,
and they were not a-fraid;
but the sea cov-ered their ene-mies.
He brought them to/the bor-der of his holy land,

to this mountain-ous land
which his right hand ac-quired.
He drove the na-tions out from be-fore them;
he as-signed them their trib-al al-lot-ments

and al-lowed the tribes of Is-ra-el to settle down.
Yet they chal-lenged and de-fied God Most High,
and did not o-bey his com-mands.
They were un-faithful to God

and acted as treacher-ous-ly as their an-ces-tors;
they were as un-re-lia-ble as/a bro-ken bow.
They made him an-gry with/their pa-gan shrines,
and made him jeal-ous with/their i-dols.

God heard and was an-gry;
he com-plet-ly re-jected Is-ra-el.
He a-bandoned the sanc-tu-ary at Shi-loh,
the tent where he lived a-mong men.

He al-lowed the symbol of his pres-ence to/be cap-tured;
he gave the symbol of his splen-dor to/the ene-my.
He de-livered his people over to/the sword,
and was an-gry with his chosen na-tion.

Fire con-sumed their young men,
and their virgins re-mained un-mar-ried.
Their priests fell by/the sword,
but their widows did not weep.

But then the Lord a-woke from his sleep;
he was like a warri-or in a drunken rage.
He drove his ene-mies back;
he made them a perma-nent tar-get for in-sults.

He re-jected the tent of Jo-seph;
he did/not choose the tribe of Eph-ra-im.
He chose the tribe of Ju-dah,
and Mount Zi-on, which he loves.

He made his sanc-tu-ary
as en-during as the heavens a-bove;
as se-cure as the earth,
which he es-tab-lished perma-nent-ly.

He chose Da-vid, his serv-ant,
and took him from/the sheep fold.
He took him a-way from follow-ing the sheep,
and made him the shep-herd

of Ja-cob, his peo-ple,
and of Is-ra-el, his chosen na-tion.
Da-vid cared for them
with pure mo-tives; he led them with skill.

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 18:12-28


Now while Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Jews attacked Paul together and brought him before the judgment seat, saying, “This man is persuading people to worship God in a way contrary to the law!” But just as Paul was about to speak, Gallio said to the Jews, “If it were a matter of some crime or serious piece of villainy, I would have been justified in accepting the complaint of you Jews, but since it concerns points of disagreement about words and names and your own law, settle it yourselves. I will not be a judge of these things!” Then he had them forced away from the judgment seat. So they all seized Sosthenes, the president of the synagogue, and began to beat him in front of the judgment seat. Yet none of these things were of any concern to Gallio.

Paul, after staying many more days in Corinth, said farewell to the brothers and sailed away to Syria accompanied by Priscilla and Aquila. He had his hair cut off at Cenchrea because he had made a vow. When they reached Ephesus, Paul left Priscilla and Aquila behind there, but he himself went into the synagogue and addressed the Jews. When they asked him to stay longer, he would not consent, but said farewell to them and added, “I will come back to you again if God wills.” Then he set sail from Ephesus, and when he arrived at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the church at Jerusalem and then went down to Antioch. After he spent some time there, Paul left and went through the region of Galatia and Phrygia, strengthening all the disciples.

Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, arrived in Ephesus. He was an eloquent speaker, well-versed in the scriptures. He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and with great enthusiasm he spoke and taught accurately the facts about Jesus, although he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak out fearlessly in the synagogue, but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained the way of God to him more accurately. When Apollos wanted to cross over to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he assisted greatly those who had believed by grace, for he refuted the Jews vigorously in public debate, demonstrating from the scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

Through his holy proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our ene-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to wor-ship him without fear,

ho-ly and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In/the tender com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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 8:22-33


Then they came to Bethsaida. They brought a blind man to Jesus and asked him to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and brought him outside of the village. Then he spit on his eyes, placed his hands on his eyes and asked, “Do you see anything?” Regaining his sight he said, “I see people, but they look like trees walking.” Then Jesus placed his hands on the man’s eyes again. And he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Jesus sent him home, saying, “Do not even go into the village.”

Then Jesus and his disciples went to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” They said, “John the Baptist, others say Elijah, and still others, one of the prophets.” He asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him.

Then Jesus began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and experts in the law, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He spoke openly about this. So Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But after turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan. You are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but on man’s.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

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.
