Sunday - Evensong Invitation

Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Worship the Lord in/the beauty 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 evening sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives/me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set/the Lord always 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.

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O gracious light, pure bright-ness
of the ever-living Father in heav-en,
O Je-sus Christ, holy and bless-ed!
we sing your praises, O God!

Now as/we come to/the setting of/the sun,
and our eyes be-hold/the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God:
Father, 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 8


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, our Lord, how mag-nifi-cent
is your repu-tation through-out the earth!
You re-veal your majes-ty in/the heavens a-bove!
From the mouths of children and nursing ba-bies

You have or-dained praise on/ac-count of your adver-sar-ies,
so that you might put/an end to/the vin-dictive ene-mies.
When I look up at/the heavens, which your fingers made,
and see the moon and/the stars, which you set in place,

Of what im-portance is the human race,
that you should no-tice them?
Of what im-portance is man-kind,
that you should pay at-tention to them?

You made them a little less than the heaven-ly be-ings.
You crowned man-kind with honor and majes-ty.
you ap-point them to rule over your cre-a-tion;
you have placed every-thing under their au-thori-ty,

in-cluding all the sheep and cat-tle,
as well as the wild ani-mals,
the birds in/the sky, the fish in/the sea
and every-thing that moves through the currents of/the sea.

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 84


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



How lovely is the place where you live,
O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my!
I desper-ately want to be
in/the courts of/the Lord's tem-ple.

My heart and my en-tire be-ing
shout for joy to/the living God.
Even the birds find/a home there,
and the swallow builds a nest,

where she can pro-tect her young
near your altar, O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my,
my king and my God.
How blessed are those who live in your tem-ple

and praise you con-tinual-ly!
How blessed are those who find their strength in you,
and long to travel the roads
that lead to your tem-ple!

As they pass through the Ba-ca Val-ley,
he pro-vides a spring for them.
The rain even covers it with pools of wat-er.
They are sus-tained as they travel a-long;

each one ap-pears be-fore God in Zi-on.
O Lord God of Heaven's Ar-my, hear my prayer!
Listen, O God of Ja-cob, and notice our shield!
Show con-cern for your chosen king!

Certain-ly spending just one day
in the courts of your tem-ple
is better than spending a thousand days
any-where _ else on/the earth.

I would rather stand be-fore the temple of my God
than live in/the tents of/the wick-ed.
For the Lord God is our sovereign pro-tec-tor.
The Lord be-stows favor and hon-or;

he with-holds no good thing
from those who have in-tegri-ty.
O Lord of Heaven's Ar-my,
how blessed are those who trust in you!

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 Galatians 5:13-25


For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." If, however, you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Sunday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will sing to/the Lord,
for he is lofty and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my people and I will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a mighty warri-or;
Yah-weh is his holy Name.
The chari-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The finest of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in/the Red Sea.
The fathom-less deep has over-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O Lord,
is glori-ous and might-y;
your right hand, O Lord,
has over-thrown the ene-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
O Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glori-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the people you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your holy dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In/the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, O Lord,

In/the sanctu-ary, O Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ever and for ever. 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.


A reading from Mark 8:22-30


They came to Bethsaida. Some people brought a blind man to him and begged him to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village; and when he had put saliva on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, "Can you see anything?" And the man looked up and said, "I can see people, but they look like trees, walking." Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he looked intently and his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Then he sent him away to his home, saying, "Do not even go into the village." Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" And they answered him, "John the Baptist; and others, 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 Messiah." And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
