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!

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 Ghost
As 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 48 Magnus Dominus
  Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised; *
in the city of our God is his holy hill.
  Beautiful and lofty, the joy of all the earth, is the hill of Zion, *
the very center of the world and the city of the great King.
  God is in her citadels; *
he is known to be her sure refuge.
  Behold, the kings of the earth assembled *
and marched forward together.
  They looked and were astounded; *
they retreated and fled in terror.
  Trembling seized them there; *
they writhed like a woman in childbirth, like ships of the sea when the east wind shatters them.
  As we have heard, so have we seen, in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; *
God has established her for ever.
  We have waited in silence on your loving-kindness, O God, *
in the midst of your temple.
  Your praise, like your Name, O God, reaches to the world's end; *
your right hand is full of justice.
10   Let Mount Zion be glad and the cities of Judah rejoice, *
because of your judgments.
11   Make the circuit of Zion; walk round about her; *
count the number of her towers.
12   Consider well her bulwarks; examine her strongholds; *
that you may tell those who come after.
13   This God is our God for ever and ever; *
he shall be our guide for evermore.

Psalm 122 Lætatus sum
  I was glad when they said to me, *
"Let us go to the house of the LORD."
  Now our feet are standing *
within your gates, O Jerusalem.
  Jerusalem is built as a city *
that is at unity with itself;
  To which the tribes go up, the tribes of the LORD, *
the assembly of Israel, to praise the Name of the LORD.
  For there are the thrones of judgment, *
the thrones of the house of David.
  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: *
"May they prosper who love you.
  Peace be within your walls *
and quietness within your towers.
  For my brethren and companions' sake, *
I pray for your prosperity.
  Because of the house of the LORD our God, *
I will seek to do you good."



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 Isaiah 43:10-15

You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior. I declared and saved and proclaimed, when there was no strange god among you; and you are my witnesses, says the LORD. I am God, and also henceforth I am He; there is no one who can deliver from my hand; I work and who can hinder it? Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I will send to Babylon and break down all the bars, and the shouting of the Chaldeans will be turned to lamentation. I am the LORD, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.

Here ends the Reading.

CLOSING HYMN


LEVAS2 (L060) How great Thou art


Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

HARVEST PARTS

1 O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed.
Refrain:
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
2 When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze. [Refrain]
3 And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Send him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin. [Refrain]
4 When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God how great thou art. [Refrain]
