Wednesday - 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.


Wednesday - 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 49


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Hear this, all you peo-ples;
give ear, all in-habit-ants of/the world,
both low and high, rich and poor to-geth-er.
My mouth shall speak wis-dom;

the medi-tation of my heart shall be under-stand-ing.
I will in-cline my ear to a pro-verb;
I will solve my riddle to/the music of/the harp.
Why should I fear in times of trou-ble,

when the in-i-quity of my perse-cutors sur-rounds me,
those who trust in their wealth
and boast of/the a-bundance of their rich-es?
Tru-ly, no ransom a-vails for one's life

there is no price one can give to God for it.
For the ransom of life is cost-ly,
and can never suf-fice,
that one should live on for-ev-er

and never see the grave.
When we look at/the wise, they die;
fool and dolt perish to-geth-er
and leave their wealth to oth-ers.

Their graves are their homes for-ev-er,
their dwelling places to all gener-a-tions,
though they named lands their own.
Mortals can't a-bide in their pomp;

they are like the ani-mals that per-ish.
Such is the fate of/the fool-har-dy,
the end of those who are pleased with their lot.
Like sheep they are ap-pointed for She-ol;

Death shall be their shep-herd;
straight to/the grave they de-scend,
and their form shall waste a-way;
She-ol shall be their home.

But God will ransom my soul from/the power of She-ol
for he will re-ceive me.
Do not be a-fraid when some be-come rich,
when the wealth of their houses in-creas-es.

For when they die they will carry nothing a-way;
their wealth will not go down after them.
Though in their life-time they count them-selves hap-py
for you are praised when you do well for your-self

they will go to/the compan-y of their an-ces-tors,
who will never a-gain see the light.
Mortals can't a-bide in their pomp;
they are like the ani-mals that per-ish.

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 Thessalonians 2:1-12


You yourselves know, brothers and sisters, that our coming to you was not in vain, but though we had already suffered and been shamefully mistreated at Philippi, as you know, we had courage in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in spite of great opposition. For our appeal does not spring from deceit or impure motives or trickery, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the message of the gospel, even so we speak, not to please mortals, but to please God who tests our hearts. As you know and as God is our witness, we never came with words of flattery or with a pretext for greed; nor did we seek praise from mortals, whether from you or from others,

though we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children. So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you have become very dear to us. You remember our labor and toil, brothers and sisters; we worked night and day, so that we might not burden any of you while we proclaimed to you the gospel of God. You are witnesses, and God also, how pure, upright, and blameless our conduct was toward you believers. As you know, we dealt with each one of you like a father with his children, urging and encouraging you and pleading that you lead a life worthy of God, who calls you into his own kingdom and glory.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Wednesday - 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 ho-ly 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 Matthew 5:17-20


"Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Wednesday - 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.
