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.

O Gracious Light Phos hilaron with words
O gracious light,

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,

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.

PSALMS



Psalm 47 Omnes gentes, plaudite
  Clap your hands, all  |  you peo-  |  ples; *
shout to God  |  with a  |  cry of  |  joy.
  For the LORD Most High is  |  to be  |  feared; *
he is the great King  |  over  |  all the  |  earth.
  He subdues the peoples  |  under  |  us, *
and the  |  nations  |  under our  |  feet.
  He chooses our inheri-  |  tance for  |  us, *
the pride of  |  Jacob  |  whom he  |  loves.
  God has gone up  |  with a  |  shout, *
the LORD with the  |  sound of  |  the ram's  |  horn.
  Sing praises to God, |  sing prais-  |  es; *
sing praises to  |  our King,  |  sing prais-  |  es.
  For God is King of  |  all the  |  earth; *
sing prais-  |  es with  |  all your  |  skill.
  God reigns over  |  the na-  |  tions; *
God sits up-  |  on his  |  holy  |  throne.
  The nobles of the peoples have gathered  |  toge-  |  ther *
with the people of the  |  God of  |  Abra-  |  ham.
10   The rulers of the earth be-  |  long to  |  God, *
and he is  |  highly  |  exalt-  |  ed.


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  |  cita-  |  dels; *
he is known to  |  be her  |  sure re-  |  fuge.
  Behold, the kings of the earth  |  assem-  |  bled *
and marched  |  forward  |  toge-  |  ther.
  They looked and were  |  astoun-  |  ded; *
they retreated  |  and fled  |  in ter-  |  ror.
  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 esta-  |  blished her  |  for e-  |  ver.
  We have waited in silence on your loving-kind-  |  ness, O  |  God, *
in the  |  midst of  |  your tem-  |  ple.
  Your praise, like your Name, O God, reaches to  |  the world's  |  end; *
your right hand  |  is full  |  of jus-  |  tice.
10   Let Mount Zion be glad and the cities of Ju-  |  dah re-  |  joice, *
be-  |  cause of  |  your judg-  |  ments.
11   Make the circuit of Zion; walk round  |  about  |  her; *
count the number  |  of her  |  towers.
12   Consider well her bulwarks; examine  |  her strong  |  holds; *
that you may tell  |  those who  |  come af-  |  ter.
13   This God is our God for ever  |  and e-  |  ver; *
he shall be our  |  guide for  |  ever  |  more.

Gloria Patri

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!

The Lessons

A reading from John 5:1-18 After this there was a festival of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate there is a pool, called in Hebrew Beth-zatha, which has five porticoes. In these lay many invalids-- blind, lame, and paralyzed.

One man was there who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be made well?" The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no one to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; and while I am making my way, someone else steps down ahead of me."

Jesus said to him, "Stand up, take your mat and walk." At once the man was made well, and he took up his mat and began to walk. Now that day was a sabbath. So the Jews said to the man who had been cured, "It is the sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your mat." But he answered them, "The man who made me well said to me, 'Take up your mat and walk.'"

They asked him, "Who is the man who said to you, 'Take it up and walk'?" Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had disappeared in the crowd that was there.

Later Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, "See, you have been made well! Do not sin any more, so that nothing worse happens to you." The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well.

Therefore the Jews started persecuting Jesus, because he was doing such things on the sabbath. But Jesus answered them, "My Father is still working, and I also am working." For this reason the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because he was not only breaking the sabbath, but was also calling God his own Father, thereby making himself equal to 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

HYMNODY    (Playlist)     





WLP (W 807)   Put down your nets and follow me

Piano     PARTS 

1. "Put down your nets and follow me,"
Our Lord and Master said; 
And so they followed, willingly,
Not knowing where he led.

2. We too are called from our concerns
to follow Our Lord's way.
By trusting Him the heart soon learns
to cast off yesterday.

3. Do not be tempted by the cares
of long deluded dreams;
temptation's path is wrought with snares
and never as it seems.

4. The phantom riches we pursue
are never ours to gain. 
They fade before our eyes like dew
after a morning rain.

5. "Put down your nets and follow me,"
Our Lord and Master said; 
O may we follow faitfully,
well knowing where He leads.


WLP (763): As we gather at Your table


Piano    Parts

1 As we gather at your table,
as we listen to your Word,
help us know, O God, your presence;
let our hearts and minds be stirred.
Nourish us with sacred story
till we claim it as our own;
teach us through this holy banquet
how to make Love’s vict’ry known.
2 Turn our worship into witness
in the sacrament of life;
send us forth to love and serve you,
bringing peace where there is strife.
Give us, Christ, your great compassion
to forgive as you forgave;
may we still behold your image
in the world you died to save.
3 Gracious Spirit, help us summon
other guests to share that Feast
where triumphant Love will welcome
those who had been last and least.
There no more will envy blind us
nor will pride our peace destroy,
as we join with saints and angels
to repeat the sounding joy.

WLP (757)   Will you come and follow me?



Will you come and follow me if I but call your name?

Will you go where you don't know and never be the same?
Will you let my love be shown? Will you let my name be known,
will you let my life be grown in you and you in me?

Will you leave yourself behind if I but call your name?
Will you care for cruel and kind and never be the same?
Will you risk the hostile stare should your life attract or scare?
Will you let me answer prayer in you and you in me?

Will you let the blinded see if I but call your name?
Will you set the prisoners free and never be the same?
Will you kiss the leper clean and do such as this unseen,
and admit to what I mean in you and you in me?

Will you love the "you" you hide if I but call your name?
Will you quell the fear inside and never be the same?
Will you use the faith you've found to reshape the world around,
through my sight and touch and sound in you and you in me?

Christ your summons echoes true when you but call my name.
Let me turn and follow you and never be the same.
In Your company I'll go where Your love and footsteps show.
Thus I'll move and live and grow in you and you in me.


WLP (761): All who hunger gather gladly

Piano    Parts

All who hunger, gather gladly;
holy manna is our bread.
Come from wilderness and wandering.
Here, in truth, we will be fed.
You that yearn for days of fullness,
all around us is our food.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, never strangers;
seeker, be a welcome guest.
Come from restlessness and roaming.
Here, in joy, we keep the feast.
We that once were lost and scattered
in communion’s love have stood.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, sing together;
Jesus Christ is living bread.
Come from loneliness and longing.
Here, in peace, we have been led.
Blest are those who from this table
live their lives in gratitude.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

WLP (W758)   Tu has venido a la orilla

Piano     PARTS

Tu has venido a la orilla,
no has buscado, a sabios ni a ricos,
tan solo quieres que yo te siga.

REFRAIN:
Jesús, me has mirado a los ojos,
sonriendo, has dicho mi nombre,
en la arena he dejado mi barca,
junto a ti buscaré otro mar.

Tu, sabes bien lo que tengo,
en mi barca no hay oro ni espada,
tan solo redes y mi trabajo.
[Refrain]

Tu, necesitas mis manos,
mi cansancio que a otros descanse,
amor que quiera seguir amando.
[Refrain]

Tu, Pesacador de otros lagos,
ansia eterna, de almas que esperan,
amigo bueno, que asi me llamas.
[Refrain]


You have come down to the lakeshore
Seeking neither the wise nor the wealthy,
But only asking for me to follow.

REFRAIN
O Jesus, you have looked into my eyes,
Kindly smiling, you've called out my name.
On the sand I've abandoned my small boat;
Now with you, I will seek other seas.

You know full well what I have, Lord;
Neither treasure nor weapons for conquest,
Just these my fishnets and will for working.
[Refrain]

You need my hands, my exhaustion,
Working love for the rest of the weary,
A love that's willing to go on loving.
[Refrain]

You who have fished other waters;
You, the longing of souls that are yearning;
O loving Friend, you have come to call me.
[Refrain]

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.
