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.

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 10


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Why, Lord, do you stand far off?
Why do you pay no at-ten-tion
during times of trou-ble?
The wicked arro-gantly chase the op-pressed;

the op-pressed are trapped
by the schemes the wicked have dreamed up.
Yes, the wicked man boasts
be-cause he gets what he wants;

the one who robs oth-ers
cur-ses and re-jects the Lord.
The wicked man is so arro-gant
he always thinks, God won't hold me ac-counta-ble;

He does not care.
He is se-cure at all times.
He has no re-gard for your com-mands;
he dis-dains all his ene-mies.

He says to him-self,
I will never be shak-en,
be-cause I ex-peri-ence no ca-lami-ty.
His mouth is full of curs-es

and de-ceptive, harm-ful words;
his tongue injures and de-stroys.
He waits in ambush near the vil-lag-es;
in hidden places he kills the inno-cent.

His eyes look for some un-fortun-ate vic-tim.
He lies in ambush in/a hid-den place,
like a lion in a thick-et;
he lies in ambush, waiting to catch the op-pressed;

He catches the op-pressed
by pull-ing in his net.
His victims are crushed and beaten down;
they are trapped in his sturdy net.

He says to him-self, God over-looks it;
he does not pay at-ten-tion;
he will never no-tice.
Rise up, Lord! O God, strike him down!

Do/not for-get the op-pressed!
Why does the wicked man re-ject God?
He says to him-self, You will not hold me ac-counta-ble.
But you have taken no-tice,

For you always see one
who in-flicts pain and suffer-ing.
The un-fortun-ate victim en-trusts his cause to you;
You de-liver the fath-er-less.

Break the arm of/the wicked and evil man!
Hold him ac-counta-ble for his wicked deeds,
which he thought you would not dis-cov-er.
The Lord rules for-ev-er!

The na-tions are driven out of his land.
Lord, you have heard the re-quest of/the op-pressed;
you make them feel se-cure
be-cause you list-en to their prayer.

You de-fend the fath-er-less
and you care for/the op-pressed,
so that these wicked mere mor-tals
may no longer terror-ize them.

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 11


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



In/the Lord I have taken shel-ter.
How can you say to me,
Flee to/a mountain like a bird!
For look, the wicked pre-pare their bows,

they put their arrows on/the strings,
to shoot in/the darkness at/the moral-ly up-right.
When the foun-dations are de-stroyed,
what can the god-ly ac-com-plish?

The Lord is in his holy tem-ple;
the Lord's throne is in heav-en.
His eyes watch; his eyes ex-amine all peo-ple.
The Lord ap-proves of/the god-ly,

but he hates the wick-ed
and those who love to do vio-lence.
May he rain down burn-ing coals
and brim-stone on/the wick-ed!

A whirl-wind is what they de-serve!
Certain-ly the Lord is just;
he re-wards god-ly deeds;
the up-right will ex-peri-ence his fa-vor.

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 Peter 1:13-25


Therefore prepare your minds for action; discipline yourselves; set all your hope on the grace that Jesus Christ will bring you when he is revealed. Like obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires that you formerly had in ignorance. Instead, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; for it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy." If you invoke as Father the one who judges all people impartially according to their deeds, live in reverent fear during the time of your exile. You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. He was destined before the foundation of the world, but was revealed at the end of the ages for your sake. Through him you have come to trust in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are set on God. Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth so that you have genuine mutual love, love one another deeply from the heart. You have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God.

For "All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord endures forever." That word is the good news that was announced to you.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For/be-hold, darkness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will/ap-pear up-on you.
Nations will stream to your light,
and kings to/the brightness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will always be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zion of/the Holy One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ruin or de-struction with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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 John 14:18-31


"I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them." Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, "Lord, how is it that you will reveal yourself to us, and not to the world?" Jesus answered him, "Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is from the Father who sent me.

"I have said these things to you while I am still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

You heard me say to you, 'I am going away, and I am coming to you.' If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, because the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it occurs, so that when it does occur, you may believe. I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me; but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father. Rise, let us be on our way.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we/ac-claim you;

Through-out/the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Father, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son,
worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Holy Spirit, advo-cate and guide.

You, Christ, are/the king of glo-ry,
the e-ternal Son of/the Fath-er.
When you be-came man/to set us free
you did not shun the Virgin's womb.

You over-came the sting of death
and opened 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 all your saints
to glory ever-lasting. A-men.

and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
