Evensong Friday January 10

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!

Confession of Sin

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

V: O God, make speed to save us.R: O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy GhostAs it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.World without end. Amen, amen!
O Gracious Light Phos hilaron with words
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 147 Laudate Dominum
  Hallelujah! How good it is to sing praises to our God! *
how pleasant it is to honor him with praise!
  The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem; *
he gathers the exiles of Israel.
  He heals the brokenhearted *
and binds up their wounds.
  He counts the number of the stars *
and calls them all by their names.
  Great is our LORD and mighty in power; *
there is no limit to his wisdom.
  The LORD lifts up the lowly, *
but casts the wicked to the ground.
  Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; *
make music to our God upon the harp.
  He covers the heavens with clouds *
and prepares rain for the earth;
  He makes grass to grow upon the mountains *
and green plants to serve mankind.
10   He provides food for flocks and herds *
and for the young ravens when they cry.
11   He is not impressed by the might of a horse; *
he has no pleasure in the strength of a man;
12   But the LORD has pleasure in those who fear him, *
in those who await his gracious favor.
13   Worship the LORD, O Jerusalem; *
praise your God, O Zion;
14   For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; *
he has blessed your children within you.
15   He has established peace on your borders; *
he satisfies you with the finest wheat.
16   He sends out his command to the earth, *
and his word runs very swiftly.
17   He gives snow like wool; *
he scatters hoarfrost like ashes.
18   He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; *
who can stand against his cold?
19   He sends forth his word and melts them; *
he blows with his wind, and the waters flow.
20   He declares his word to Jacob, *
his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
21   He has not done so to any other nation; *
to them he has not revealed his judgments. Hallelujah!


Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy GhostAs it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be.World without end. Amen, amen!

The Lessons

A reading from John 10:7-17

So again Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and bandits; but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the gate. Whoever enters by me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away-- and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again.

Here ends the Reading.
