Sunday - Evensong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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.


Sunday - 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 19


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




The heavens de-clare the glory of God;
the sky dis-plays his handi-work.
Day after day it speaks out;
night after night it re-veals his great-ness.

There is no ac-tual speech or word,
nor is its voice liter-al-ly heard.
Yet its voice echoes through-out the earth;
its words carry to/the dis-tant ho-ri-zon.

In/the sky he has pitched a tent for/the sun.
Like a bride-groom it e-merg-es from its cham-ber;
like a strong man it en-joys running its course.
It e-merges from/the dis-tant ho-ri-zon,

and goes from one end of/the sky to/the oth-er;
noth-ing can es-cape its heat.
The law of/the Lord is per-fect and pre-serves one's life.
The rules set down by/the Lord are re-lia-ble

and im-part wis-dom to/the inex-pe-ri-enced.
The Lord's pre-cepts are fair and make one joy-ful.
The Lord's com-mands are pure and give in-sight for life.
The com-mands to fear the Lord are right and en-dure for-ev-er.

The judg-ments given by/the Lord
are trust-worthy and ab-so-lute-ly just.
They are of greater val-ue than gold,
than even a great a-mount of pure gold;

they bring greater de-light than hon-ey,
than even the sweet-est hon-ey from/a honey-comb.
Yes, your servant finds moral guid-ance there;
those who o-bey them re-ceive a rich re-ward.

Who can know all his er-rors?
Please do not punish me for sins I am una-ware of.
More-over, keep me from com-mItting fla-grant sins;
do not al-low such sins to con-trol me.

Then I will be blame-less,
and inno-cent of bla-tant re-bel-lion.
May my words and my thoughts be ac-cept-able in your sight, O Lord,
my shelter-ing rock and my re-deem-er.

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 46


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




God is our strong ref-uge;
he is truly our helper in times of trou-ble.
For this reason we do not fear when the earth shakes,
and the mountains tum-ble into the depths of/the sea,

when its waves crash and foam,
and the mountains shake be-fore the surging sea.
The river's chan-nels bring joy to/the cit-y of God,
the special holy dwelling place of/the Most High.

God lives with-in it, it can/not be moved.
God res-cues it at/the break of dawn.
Na-tions are in up-roar, kingdoms are over-thrown.
God gives a shout, the earth dis-solves.

The Lord of Heaven's Ar-mies is on our side!
The God of Ja-cob is our pro-tec-tor!
Come! Witness the ex-ploits of/the Lord,
who brings devas-ta-tion to/the earth!

He brings an end to wars through-out the earth;
he shatters the bow and breaks the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
He says, Stop your striving and recog-nize that I am God!

I will be ex-alted over the na-tions!
I will be ex-alted over the earth!
The Lord of Heaven's Ar-mies is on our side!
The God of Ja-cob is our pro-tec-tor!

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 9:36-43


Now in Joppa there was a disciple named Tabitha (which in translation means Dorcas). She was continually doing good deeds and acts of charity. At that time she became sick and died. When they had washed her body, they placed it in an upstairs room. Because Lydda was near Joppa, when the disciples heard that Peter was there, they sent two men to him and urged him, “Come to us without delay.” So Peter got up and went with them, and when he arrived they brought him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him, crying and showing him the tunics and other clothing Dorcas used to make while she was with them. But Peter sent them all outside, knelt down, and prayed. Turning to the body, he said, “Tabitha, get up.” Then she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. He gave her his hand and helped her get up. Then he called the saints and widows and presented her alive. This became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord. So Peter stayed many days in Joppa with a man named Simon, a tanner.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - 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 Luke 5:1-11


Now Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing around him to hear the word of God. He saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gotten out of them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then Jesus sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and lower your nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we worked hard all night and caught nothing! But at your word I will lower the nets.” When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets started to tear. So they motioned to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they were about to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!” For Peter and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken, and so were James and John, Zebedee’s sons, who were Simon’s business partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people!” So when they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Sunday - 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.
