Thursday - Evensong Invitation

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 145


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will ex-tol you, my God, O king!
I will praise your name con-tin-ual-ly!
Eve-ry day I will praise you!
I will praise your name con-tin-ual-ly!

The Lord is great
and certain-ly worthy of praise!
No one can fathom his great-ness!
One gener-a-tion will praise your deeds to an-oth-er,

And tell a-bout your mighty acts!
I will focus on your hon-or and ma-jes-tic splen-dor,
and your a-mazing deeds!
They will pro-claim the power of your awe-some acts!

I will de-clare your great deeds!
They will talk a-bout the fame of your great kind-ness,
and sing a-bout your jus-tice.
The Lord is merci-ful and com-passion-ate;

He is pa-tient
and demon-strates great loyal love.
The Lord is good to all,
and has com-passion on all he has made.

All your works will give thanks to you, Lord.
Your loyal follow-ers will praise you.
They will pro-claim the splen-dor of your king-dom;
they will tell a-bout your power,

So that man-kind might ac-knowl-edge your mighty acts,
and the ma-jes-tic splen-dor of your king-dom.
Your kingdom is an e-ternal king-dom,
and your do-min-ion en-dures through all gener-a-tions.

The Lord sup-ports all who fall,
and lifts up all who are bent o-ver.
Every-thing looks to you in an-tici-pa-tion,
and you pro-vide them with food on a regu-lar ba-sis.

You o-pen your hand,
and fill every living thing with/the food they de-sire.
The Lord is just in all his ac-tions,
and ex-hibits love in all he does.

The Lord is near all who cry out to him,
all who cry out to him sin-cere-ly.
He satis-fies the de-sire of his loyal follow-ers;
he hears their cry for help and de-livers them.

The Lord pro-tects all those who love him,
but he de-stroys all the wick-ed.
My mouth will praise the Lord.
Let all who live praise his holy name for-ev-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.


Readings



A reading from Joel 2:21-27


Do not fear, my land.
Rejoice and be glad
because the Lord has accomplished great things!


Do not fear, wild animals.
For the pastures of the wilderness are again green with grass.
Indeed, the trees bear their fruit;
the fig tree and the vine yield to their fullest.


Citizens of Zion, rejoice!
Be glad because of what the Lord your God has done!
For he has given to you the early rains as vindication.
He has sent to you the rains—
both the early and the late rains as formerly.


The threshing floors are full of grain;
the vats overflow with fresh wine and olive oil.


“I will make up for the years
that the ‘arbeh-locust consumed your crops—
the yeleq-locust, the hasil-locust, and the gazam-locust—
my great army that I sent against you.


You will have plenty to eat,
and your hunger will be fully satisfied;
you will praise the name of the Lord your God,
who has acted wondrously in your behalf.
My people will never again be put to shame.


You will be convinced that I am in the midst of Israel.
I am the Lord your God; there is no other.
My people will never again be put to shame.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24


Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who labor among you and preside over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them most highly in love because of their work. Be at peace among yourselves. And we urge you, brothers and sisters, admonish the undisciplined, comfort the discouraged, help the weak, be patient toward all. See that no one pays back evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good for one another and for all. Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not extinguish the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt. But examine all things; hold fast to what is good. Stay away from every form of evil.

Now may the God of peace himself make you completely holy and may your spirit and soul and body be kept entirely blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is trustworthy, and he will in fact do this.

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,

and sing the praises of your Name?
for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and holy works
have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, a-men!

and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.

Amen.
