Invitatory and Psalter Opening Sentence Preces

Richard Ayleward

O Lord, open thou our lips: And our mouth shall show forth thy praise. O God, make speed to save us: O Lord, make haste to help us. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Praise ye the Lord. The Lord’s Name be praised.

Phos Hilaron Hail gladdening light of his pure glory poured. Who is the immortal father heavenly blessed. Holiest of holies, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Now we are come to the sun’s hour of rest. The lights of evening round us shine. We hymn the father Son, and Holy Spirit divine.

Worthiest are thou at all times to be sung. With undefiled tongue. Son of our God,giver of life alone. Therefore in all the world thy glories Lord they own.

The Lessons • silence is kept after each reading for reflection

First Lesson

Deuteronomy 6:1-9

Now this is the commandment—the statutes and the ordinances—that the Lord your God charged me to teach you to observe in the land that you are about to cross into and occupy, so that you and your children and your children’s children may fear the Lord your God all the days of your life, and keep all his decrees and his commandments that I am commanding you, so that your days may be long. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe them diligently, so that it may go well with you, and so that you may multiply greatly in a land flowing

Magnificat in B flat

Book of Common Prayer page 119

Second Lesson

with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you. Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise. Bind them as a sign on your hand, fix them as an emblem on your forehead, and write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Charles Villiers Stanford

John 12:24-32

Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour. ‘Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—“Father, save me from this hour”? No, it is for this reason that I have

come to this hour. Father, glorify your name.’ Then a voice came from heaven, ‘I have glorified it, and I will glorify it again.’ The crowd standing there heard it and said that it was thunder. Others said, ‘An angel has spoken to him.’ Jesus answered, ‘This voice has come for your sake, not for mine. Now is the judgement of this world; now the ruler of this world will be driven out. And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.’

The Apostles’ Creed officiant all


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.

The Lord’s Prayer • spoken by all Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.

Richard Ayleward

O Lord, show thy mercy upon us: and grant us thy salvation. O Lord, save the State: and mercifully hear us when we call upon thee. Endue thy ministers with righteousness: and make thy chosen people joyful. O Lord, save thy people: and bless thine inheritance.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving • said by all Accept, O Lord, our thanks and praise for all that you have done for us. We thank you for the splendor of the whole creation, for the beauty of this world, for the wonder of life, and for the mystery of love. We thank you for the blessing of family and friends, and for the loving care which surrounds us on every side.

We thank you for setting us at tasks which demand our best efforts, and for leading us to accomplishments which satisfy and delight us. We thank you also for those disappointments and failures that lead us to acknowledge our dependence on you alone.

Above all, we thank you for your Son Jesus Christ; for the truth of his Word and the example of his life; for his steadfast obedience, by which he overcame temptation; for his dying, through which he overcame death; and for his rising to life again, in which we are raised to the life of your kingdom.

Grant us the gift of your Spirit, that we may know him and make him known; and through him, at all times and in all places, may give thanks to you in all things. Amen.

Established in 1822, Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest house of worship in Louisville. The Cathedral has and continues to uphold the highest standard for music and worship.

Thank you for your presence here this evening. ​

Music at the Cathedral Established in 1822, Christ Church Cathedral is the oldest house of worship in Louisville. The Cathedral has and continues to uphold the highest standard for music and worship. While the great traditions of the church are at risk of being lost in our culture, the Cathedral desires to maintain our heritage of Anglican music and historical liturgies while always looking forward and being relevant in our world today. With this in mind, our worship reflects the contemplative nature of evening worship through Evensong to the joyous celebrations of the nativity and resurrection.

The Cathedral Choir is the resident choral ensemble at the Cathedral, singing all principal services. The choir also sings services for the Diocese of Kentucky, monthly Evensongs, and the annual Advent Lessons and Carols. A mixed choir of adults, the choir sings music from all eras, while focusing approximately fifty percent of their repertoire to music by American composers. The Cathedral Choir has been featured on both local and national public radio programs numerous times. Recordings available by the Cat hedral Choir include An American Evening: Music by American Composers and Lux Aeterna-Music spanning a thousand years with the common theme of light. Join us for Eucharist each Sunday at 10:30 AM and visit the Cathedral’s website for additional service information.
