Friday - 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.
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.


Friday - 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 91


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



As for you, the one who lives in/the shelter of/the Most High,
and re-sides in/the pro-tective shadow of/the Sovereign One
I say this/a-bout the Lord,
my shelter and my stronghold, my God in whom I trust

he will certain-ly rescue you from/the snare of/the hun-ter
and from/the de-struc-tive plague.
He will shelter you with his wings;
you will find safety under his wings.

His faithful-ness is like a shield or/a pro-tective wall.
You need not fear the terrors of/the night,
the arrow that flies by day,
the plague that stalks in/the dark-ness,

Nor the dis-ease that ravag-es at noon.
Though a thousand may fall be-side you,
and a multi-tude on your right side, it will not reach you.
Certain-ly you will see it with your very own eyes

you will see the wicked paid back.
For you have taken refuge in/the Lord,
The Lord is my shelter, the Most High.
No harm will over-take you;

no ill-ness will come near your home.
For he will order his angels to pro-tect you in all you do.
They will lift you up in their hands,
so you will not slip and fall on/a stone.

You will sub-due a lion and a snake;
you will tram-ple under-foot a young lion and a ser-pent.
The Lord says, Be-cause he is de-voted to me,
I will de-liver him; I will pro-tect him

Be-cause he is loyal to me.
When he calls out to me, I will answer him.
I will be with him when he is in trou-ble;
I will rescue him and bring him hon-or.

I will satis-fy him with long life,
and will let him see my sal-va-tion.
I will de-liver him; I will pro-tect him
Be-cause he is loyal to me.

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 92


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




It is fitting to thank the Lord,
and to sing praises to your name, O Most High!
It is fitting to pro-claim your loyal love in/the morn-ing,
and your faithful-ness during the night,

to the ac-compa-niment of a ten-stringed instru-ment and a lyre,
to the ac-compa-niment of/the medi-ta-tive tone of/the harp.
For you, O Lord, have made me happy by your works.
I will sing for joy be-cause of what you have done.

How great are your works, O Lord!
Your plans are very intri-cate!
The spi-rit-ual-ly in-sensi-tive do not recog-nize this;
the fool does not under-stand this.

When the wicked sprout up like grass,
and all the evil-do-ers glis-ten,
it is so that they may be an-nihil-lat-ed.
But you, O Lord, reign for-ev-er!

In-deed, look at your ene-mies, O Lord!
In-deed, look at how your ene-mies per-ish!
All the evil-do-ers are scat-tered!
You ex-alt my horn like that of/a wild ox.

I am cov-ered with fresh oil.
I gloat in triumph over those who tried to am-bush me;
I hear the de-feated cries
of the evil foes who at-tacked me.

The god-ly grow like a palm tree;
they grow high like a ce-dar in Leba-non.
Plant-ed in/the Lord's house,
they grow in/the courts of our God.

They bear fruit even when they are old;
they are filled with vi-tali-ty and have many leaves.
So they pro-claim that the Lord,
my pro-tec-tor, is just and never un-fair.

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 Ephesians 2:1-10


You were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once lived, following the course of this world, following the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work among those who are disobedient. All of us once lived among them in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of flesh and senses, and we were by nature children of wrath, like everyone else.

But God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God— not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Seek/the Lord while he wills to/be found;
call/up-on him when he draws near.
Let/the wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-pas-sion,
Let them/re-turn/to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are/not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says/the Lord.
For as/the heavens are higher than the earth,
so/are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For/as rain and snow fall from/the heav-ens
and re-turn not/a-gain,
but wat-er the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giving a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread/and fruit for eat-ing,

So/is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not/re-turn/to me emp-ty;
But/it will ac-complish that which I have pur-posed,
and prosper in that for which I sent it.

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 Matthew 7:22-27


On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many deeds of power in your name?' Then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; go away from me, you evildoers.' "Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell—and great was its fall!"

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
