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.


Thursday - 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 105:23-45


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Is-ra-el moved to E-gypt;
Ja-cob lived for/a time in/the land of Ham.
The Lord made his people very fruit-ful,
and made them more numer-ous than their ene-mies.

He caused them to hate his peo-ple,
and to mis-treat his serv-ants.
He sent his serv-ant Mo-ses,
and Aa-ron, whom he had cho-sen.

They exe-cut-ed his mi-racu-lous signs a-mong them,
and his a-mazing deeds in/the land of Ham.
He made it dark;
they did not dis-o-bey his or-ders.

He turned their water into blood,
and He killed all their fish.
Their land was over-run by frogs,
which even got into the rooms of their kings.

He ordered flies to come;
gnats in-vaded their whole terri-to-ry.
He sent hail a-long with/the rain;
there was lightning in their land.

He de-stroyed their vines and fig trees,
and broke the trees through-out their terri-to-ry.
He ordered locusts to come,
in-numer-a-ble grass-hop-pers.

They ate all the vege-ta-tion in their land,
and de-voured the crops of their fields.
He struck down all the first-born in their land,
the first fruits of their repro-duc-tive power.

He brought his people out
en-riched with silver and gold;
none of his tribes stum-bled.
E-gypt was happy when they left,

For they were a-fraid of them.
He spread out a cloud for a cov-er,
and pro-vided a fire to light up/the night.
They asked for food, and he sent quail;

he satis-fied them with food from/the sky.
He o-pened up a rock and water flowed out;
a river ran through dry re-gions.
Yes, he re-membered the sa-cred prom-ise

The prom-ise he made to A-bra-ham his serv-ant.
When he led his people out, they re-joiced;
his chosen ones shouted with joy.
He handed the terri-to-ry of na-tions over to them,

and they took pos-ses-sion
of what other peo-ples had pro-duced,
so that they might keep his com-mands and o-bey his laws.
Praise the Lord! 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.


Readings



A reading from 1 Corinthians 9:1-15


Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord? If I am not an apostle to others, at least I am to you, for you are the confirming sign of my apostleship in the Lord. This is my defense to those who examine me. Do we not have the right to financial support? Do we not have the right to the company of a believing wife, like the other apostles and the Lord’s brothers and Cephas? Or do only Barnabas and I lack the right not to work? Who ever serves in the army at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat its fruit? Who tends a flock and does not consume its milk? Am I saying these things only on the basis of common sense, or does the law not say this as well? For it is written in the law of Moses, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.” God is not concerned here about oxen, is he? Or is he not surely speaking for our benefit? It was written for us, because the one plowing and threshing ought to work in hope of enjoying the harvest. If we sowed spiritual blessings among you, is it too much to reap material things from you? If others receive this right from you, are we not more deserving?

But we have not made use of this right. Instead we endure everything so that we may not be a hindrance to the gospel of Christ. Don’t you know that those who serve in the temple eat food from the temple, and those who serve at the altar receive a part of the offerings? In the same way the Lord commanded those who proclaim the gospel to receive their living by the gospel. But I have not used any of these rights. And I am not writing these things so that something will be done for me. In fact, it would be better for me to die than—no one will deprive me of my reason for boasting!

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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 Matthew 7:22-29


On that day, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many powerful deeds in your name?’ Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Go away from me, you lawbreakers!’

“Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, but it did not collapse because its foundation had been laid on rock. Everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, and it collapsed—it was utterly destroyed!”

When Jesus finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed by his teaching, because he taught them like one who had authority, not like their experts in the law.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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.

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,

Amen.

Amen.





A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Al-might-y God,
you have given us grace at this time
with one ac-cord
to make our common sup-pli-ca-tion to you;

and you have prom-ised
through your well-be-loved Son
that when two or three are gathered in his Name
you will be in/the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions
as may be best for us;
granting us in this world knowl-edge of your truth,
and in/the age to come life ever-lasting. A-men.
