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.


Sunday - O Gracious Light


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 103


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise the Lord, O my soul!
With all that is with-in me, praise his holy name!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
Do not for-get all his kind deeds!

He's the one who for-gives all your sins,
who heals all your dis-eas-es,
who de-livers your life from/the Pit,
who crowns you with his loyal love and com-pas-sion,

who satis-fies your life with good things,
so your youth is re-newed like an ea-gle.
The Lord does what is fair,
and exe-cutes justice for all the op-pressed.

The Lord re-vealed his faithful acts to Mo-ses,
his deeds to/the Is-rael-ites.
The Lord is com-passion-ate and mer-ci-ful;
he is patient and demon-strates great loyal love.

He does not always ac-cuse,
and does not stay an-gry.
He does not deal with us as our sins de-serve;
he does not re-pay us as our mis-deeds de-serve.

For as/the skies are high/a-bove the earth,
so his loyal love towers over his faithful follow-ers.
As far as/the east is from/the west,
so he re-moves the guilt of our re-bel-lious actions from us.

As a father has com-passion on his chil-dren,
so the Lord has com-passion on his faithful follow-ers.
For he knows what we are made of;
he real-izes we are made of clay.

A person's life is like grass.
Like a flower in/the field it flourish-es,
but when the hot wind blows by, it disap-pears,
and one can no longer spot where it once grew.

But the Lord con-tinual-ly shows loyal love
to _ his faithful follow-ers,
and is faithful to their de-scend-ants,
to those who keep his cove-nant,

who are careful to o-bey his com-mands.
The Lord has es-tablished his throne in heav-en;
his kingdom ex-tends over eve-ry-thing.
Praise the Lord, you an-gels of his,

you power-ful warri-ors
who carry out his de-crees
and o-bey his or-ders!
Praise the Lord, all you warri-ors of his,

You servants of his who carry out his de-sires!
Praise the Lord, all that he has made,
in all the regions of his king-dom!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!

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 2:1-10


Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, taking Titus along with me. I went up in response to a revelation. Then I laid before them (though only in a private meeting with the acknowledged leaders) the gospel that I proclaim among the Gentiles, in order to make sure that I was not running, or had not run, in vain. But even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled to be circumcised, though he was a Greek. But because of false believers secretly brought in, who slipped in to spy on the freedom we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might enslave us— we did not submit to them even for a moment, so that the truth of the gospel might always remain with you. And from those who were supposed to be acknowledged leaders (what they actually were makes no difference to me; God shows no partiality) —those leaders contributed nothing to me. On the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel for the uncircumcised, just as Peter had been entrusted with the gospel for the circumcised (for he who worked through Peter making him an apostle to the circumcised also worked through me in sending me to the Gentiles), and when James and Cephas and John, who were acknowledged pillars, recognized the grace that had been given to me, they gave to Barnabas and me the right hand of fellowship, agreeing that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. They asked only one thing, that we remember the poor, which was actually what I was eager to do.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Sunday - 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-ations will call me blessed:

the Al-mighty 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 Isra-el,
for he has re-membered his promise of mer-cy,

The promise 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.


A reading from Mark 7:31-37


Then he returned from the region of Tyre, and went by way of Sidon towards the Sea of Galilee, in the region of the Decapolis. They brought to him a deaf man who had an impediment in his speech; and they begged him to lay his hand on him. He took him aside in private, away from the crowd, and put his fingers into his ears, and he spat and touched his tongue. Then looking up to heaven, he sighed and said to him, "Ephphatha," that is, "Be opened." And immediately his ears were opened, his tongue was released, and he spoke plainly. Then Jesus ordered them to tell no one; but the more he ordered them, the more zealously they proclaimed it. They were astounded beyond measure, saying, "He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak."

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.
