The Invitatory and Psalter

V: O God, make speed to save us.
R: O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

Alleluia

O Gracious Light Phos hilaron

O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

Psalm 134 Ecce nunc

  Behold now, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, *
you that stand by night in the house of the LORD.
  Lift up your hands in the holy place and bless the LORD; *
the LORD who made heaven and earth bless you out of Zion.

Psalm 135 Laudate nomen

  Hallelujah! Praise the Name of the LORD; *
give praise, you servants of the LORD.
  You who stand in the house of the LORD, *
in the courts of the house of our God.
  Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; *
sing praises to his Name, for it is lovely.
  For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself *
and Israel for his own possession.
  For I know that the LORD is great, *
and that our Lord is above all gods.
  The LORD does whatever pleases him, in heaven and on earth, *
in the seas and all the deeps.
  He brings up rain clouds from the ends of the earth; *
he sends out lightning with the rain, and brings the winds out of his storehouse.
  It was he who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, *
the firstborn both of man and beast.
  He sent signs and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt, *
against Pharaoh and all his servants.
10   He overthrew many nations *
and put mighty kings to death:
11   Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, the king of Bashan, *
and all the kings of Canaan.
12   He gave their land to be an inheritance, *
an inheritance for Israel his people.
13   O LORD, your Name is everlasting; *
your renown, O LORD, endures from age to age.
14   For the LORD gives his people justice *
and shows compassion to his servants.
15   The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, *
the work of human hands.
16   They have mouths, but they cannot speak; *
eyes have they, but they cannot see.
17   They have ears, but they cannot hear; *
neither is there any breath in their mouth.
18   Those who make them are like them, *
and so are all who put their trust in them.
19   Bless the LORD, O house of Israel; *
O house of Aaron, bless the LORD.
20   Bless the LORD, O house of Levi; *
you who fear the LORD, bless the LORD.
21   Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, *
who dwells in Jerusalem. Hallelujah!

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

The Lessons

A reading from Luke 19:11-27

As they were listening to this, he went on to tell a parable, because he was near Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. So he said, "A nobleman went to a distant country to get royal power for himself and then return. He summoned ten of his slaves, and gave them ten pounds, and said to them, 'Do business with these until I come back.' But the citizens of his country hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to rule over us.' When he returned, having received royal power, he ordered these slaves, to whom he had given the money, to be summoned so that he might find out what they had gained by trading. The first came forward and said, 'Lord, your pound has made ten more pounds.' He said to him, 'Well done, good slave! Because you have been trustworthy in a very small thing, take charge of ten cities.' Then the second came, saying, 'Lord, your pound has made five pounds.' He said to him, 'And you, rule over five cities.' Then the other came, saying, 'Lord, here is your pound. I wrapped it up in a piece of cloth, for I was afraid of you, because you are a harsh man; you take what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.' He said to him, 'I will judge you by your own words, you wicked slave! You knew, did you, that I was a harsh man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow? Why then did you not put my money into the bank? Then when I returned, I could have collected it with interest.' He said to the bystanders, 'Take the pound from him and give it to the one who has ten pounds.' (And they said to him, 'Lord, he has ten pounds!') 'I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. But as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them-- bring them here and slaughter them in my presence.'"

Here ends the Reading.

The Song of Mary Magnificat
Luke 1:46-55

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him *
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm, *
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, *
to Abraham and his children for ever.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
