Psalm 39 Dixi, Custodiam

1   I said, "I will keep watch up-  | on my | ways, *
so that I do not  | offend | with my  | tongue.
2   I will put a muzzle  | on my | mouth *
while the wicked  | are in | my pres-  | ence."
3   So I held my tongue and  | said no- | thing; *
I refrained from rash words; but my pain  | became | unbear-a- | ble.
4   My heart was hot within me;
while I pondered, the fire burst  | into | flame; *
I  | spoke out  | with my | tongue:
5   LORD, let me know my end and the number  | of my | days, *
so that I may know  | how short | my life  | is.
6   You have given me a mere handful of days,
and my lifetime is as nothing  | in your | sight; *
truly, even those who stand erect are  | but a | puff of | wind.
7   We walk about like a shadow, and in vain we are  | in tur- | moil; *
we heap up riches and cannot tell  | who will | gather | them.
8   And now, what  | is my | hope? *
O Lord,  | my hope  | is in | you.
9   Deliver me from all my  | transgres- | sions *
and do not make me  | the taunt | of the  | fool.
10   I fell silent and did not op-  | en my | mouth, *
for surely it  | was you | that did  | it.
11   Take your afflic-  | tion from | me; *
I am worn down by  | the blows | of your  | hand.
12   With rebukes for sin you punish us;
like a moth you eat away all that is  | dear to | us; *
truly, everyone is  | but a | puff of  | wind.
13   Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear  | to my | cry; *
hold not  | your peace  | at my | tears.
14   For I am but a sojourn-  | er with | you, *
a wayfarer, as  | all my | forebears  | were.
15   Turn your gaze from me, that I may be  | glad a- | gain, *
before I go my  | way and | am no  | more.

Psalm 36 Dixit injustus

1   There is a voice of rebellion deep in the heart  | of the | wicked; *
there is no fear of  | God be- | fore his  | eyes.
2   He flatters himself in  | his own | eyes *
that his hateful sin  | will not | be found  | out.
3   The words of his mouth are wicked and |   deceit- | ful; *
he has left off acting wise-  | ly and | doing | good.
4   He thinks up wickedness upon his bed
and has set himself in  | no good | way; *
he does not abhor  | that which | is e-  | vil.
5   Your love, O LORD, reaches to  | the hea- | vens, *
and your faith-  | fulness | to the  | clouds.
6   Your righteousness is like the strong mountains,
your justice like  | the great | deep; *
you save both  | man and | beast, O |   LORD.
7   How priceless is your  | love, O | God! *
your people take refuge under the  | shadow | of your | wings.
8   They feast upon the abundance  | of your | house; *
you give them drink from the  | river of | your de- | lights.
9   For with you is the  | well of | life, *
and in  | your light  | we see | light.
10   Continue your loving-kindness to those  | who know | you, *
and your favor to those  | who are | true of |  heart.
11   Let not the foot of the proud  | come near | me, *
nor the hand of the  | wicked | push me  | aside.
12   See how they are fallen, those who work  | wicked- | ness! *
they are cast down and shall  | not be | able to | rise.

HYMNODY for practice


Opening Hymn: LEVAS2 (L176)    An Evening Prayer

1 If I have wounded any soul today,
If I have caused one foot to go astray,
If I have walked in my own willful way,
Dear Lord, forgive!
2 If I have uttered idle words or vain,
If I have turned aside from want or pain,
Lest I offend some other through the strain,
Dear Lord, forgive!
3 If I have been perverse, or hard, or cold,
If I have longed for shelter in the fold,
When thou hast given me some fort to hold,
Dear Lord, forgive!
4 Forgive the sins I have confessed to thee;
Forgive the secret sins I do not see;
O guide me, love me, and my keeper be.
Dear Lord, forgive! Amen.

The Lessons


A reading from John 3:16-21


"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. "Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God."


Here ends the Reading.

CLOSING HYMN

LEVAS2 (L106)   Take my hand, precious Lord

Piano    PARTS

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on
Let me stand
I'm tired, I am weak I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When my way grows drear precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry
Hear my call
Hold my hand lest I fall
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
And the day is past and gone
At the river I stand
Guide my feet
Hold my hand
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home

Precious Lord, take my hand
Lead me on
Let me stand
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light
Take my hand precious Lord, lead me home
