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 107:1-32


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Give thanks to/the Lord, for he is good,
and his loyal love en-dures!
Let those de-livered by/the Lord speak out,
those whom he de-livered from/the power of/the ene-my,

and gathered from foreign lands,
from east and west, from north and south.
They wandered through the wilder-ness,
in a waste-land; they found no road to a city in which to live.

They were hun-gry and thirst-y;
they fainted from ex-haus-tion.
They cried out to/the Lord in their dis-tress;
he de-livered them from their trou-ble.

He led them on a level road,
that they might find a city in which to live.
Let them give thanks to/the Lord for his loyal love,
and for/the a-mazing things he has done for peo-ple!

For he has satis-fied those who thirst,
and those who hun-ger he has filled with food.
They sat in ut-ter dark-ness, bound in painful i-ron chains,
be-cause they had re-belled a-gainst God's com-mands,

They re-ject-ed the in-struc-tions of/the Most High.
So he used suffer-ing to hum-ble them;
they stum-bled and no one helped them up.
They cried out to/the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-livered them from their trou-ble.
He brought them out of/the ut-ter dark-ness,
and tore off their shack-les.
Let them give thanks to/the Lord for his loyal love,

And for/the a-mazing things he has done for peo-ple!
For he shattered the bronze gates,
and hacked through the i-ron bars.
They acted like fools in their re-bel-lious ways,

and suffered be-cause of their sins.
They lost their ap-pe-tite for all food,
and they drew near the gates of death.
They cried out to/the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-livered them from their trou-ble.
He sent them an as-sur-ing word and healed them;
he res-cued them from/the pits where they were trapped.
Let them give thanks to/the Lord for his loyal love,

Give thanks for/the a-mazing things
God has done for his peo-ple!
Let them pre-sent thank offer-ings,
and loud-ly pro-claim what he has done!

Some traveled on/the sea in ships,
and carried car-go over the vast wat-ers.
They wit-nessed the acts of/the Lord,
his a-mazing feats on/the deep wat-er.

He gave the order for/a wind-storm,
and it stirred up the waves of/the sea.
They reached up to/the sky,
then dropped into the depths of/the sea.

The sailors' strength left them be-cause the danger was so great.
They swayed and staggered like a drunk,
and all their skill proved inef-fec-tive.
They cried out to/the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-livered them from their trou-ble.
He calmed the storm, and the waves grew si-lent.
The sailors re-joiced be-cause the waves grew qui-et,
And he led them to/the har-bor they de-sired.

Let them give thanks to/the Lord for his loyal love,
and for/the a-mazing things he has done for peo-ple!
Let them ex-alt him in/the as-sem-bly of/the peo-ple!
Let them praise him in/the place where the leaders pre-side!

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 Corinthians 9:16-27


For if I preach the gospel, I have no reason for boasting, because I am compelled to do this. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! For if I do this voluntarily, I have a reward. But if I do it unwillingly, I am entrusted with a responsibility. What then is my reward? That when I preach the gospel I may offer the gospel free of charge, and so not make full use of my rights in the gospel.

For since I am free from all I can make myself a slave to all, in order to gain even more people. To the Jews I became like a Jew to gain the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) to gain those under the law. To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law. To the weak I became weak in order to gain the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that by all means I may save some.

I do all these things because of the gospel, so that I can be a participant in it.

Do you not know that all the runners in a stadium compete, but only one receives the prize? So run to win. Each competitor must exercise self-control in everything. They do it to receive a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.

So I do not run uncertainly or box like one who hits only air. Instead I subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

A reading from Matthew 8:1-17


After he came down from the mountain, large crowds followed him. And a leper approached and bowed low before him, saying, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.” He stretched out his hand and touched him saying, “I am willing. Be clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, “See that you do not speak to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest, and bring the offering that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”

When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him asking for help: “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible anguish.” Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.” But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof! Instead, just say the word and my servant will be healed. For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found such faith in anyone in Israel! I tell you, many will come from the east and west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, but the sons of the kingdom will be thrown out into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; just as you believed, it will be done for you.” And the servant was healed at that hour.

Now when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying down, sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her. Then she got up and began to serve them. When it was evening, many demon-possessed people were brought to him. He drove out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. In this way what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah was fulfilled:

“He took our weaknesses and carried our diseases.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



My soul pro-claims the greatness of/the Lord,
my spirit re-joices in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with favor on his lowly serv-ant.
From this day all gener-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and _ holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gener-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the low-ly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent/a-way emp-ty.
He has come to/the help of his servant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-membered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to Abra-ham and his children for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the greatness of/the Lord,
my spirit re-joices in God my Sav-ior;

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.
