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 12 Salvum me fac
  Help me, LORD, for there is no godly one left; *
the faithful have vanished from among us.
  Everyone speaks falsely with his neighbor; *
with a smooth tongue they speak from a double heart.
  Oh, that the LORD would cut off all smooth tongues, *
and close the lips that utter proud boasts!
  Those who say, "With our tongue will we prevail; *
our lips are our own; who is lord over us?"
  Because the needy are oppressed, and the poor cry out in misery, *
I will rise up, says the LORD, and give them the help they long for.
  The words of the LORD are pure words, *
like silver refined from ore and purified seven times in the fire.
  O LORD, watch over us *
and save us from this generation for ever.
  The wicked prowl on every side, *
and that which is worthless is highly prized by everyone.

Psalm 13 Usquequo, Domine?
  How long, O LORD? will you forget me for ever? *
how long will you hide your face from me?
  How long shall I have perplexity in my mind, and grief in my heart, day after day? *
how long shall my enemy triumph over me?
  Look upon me and answer me, O LORD my God; *
give light to my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
  Lest my enemy say, "I have prevailed over him, " *
and my foes rejoice that I have fallen.
  But I put my trust in your mercy; *
my heart is joyful because of your saving help.
  I will sing to the LORD, for he has dealt with me richly; *
I will praise the Name of the Lord Most High.

Psalm 14 Dixit insipiens
  The fool has said in his heart, There is no God." *
All are corrupt and commit abominable acts; there is none who does any good.
  The LORD looks down from heaven upon us all, *
to see if there is any who is wise, if there is one who seeks after God.
  Every one has proved faithless; all alike have turned bad; *
there is none who does good; no, not one.
  Have they no knowledge, all those evildoers *
who eat up my people like bread and do not call upon the LORD?
  See how they tremble with fear, *
because God is in the company of the righteous.
  Their aim is to confound the plans of the afflicted, *
but the LORD is their refuge.
  Oh, that Israel's deliverance would come out of Zion! *
when the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.


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 1:29-42

The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, "Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.' I myself did not know him; but I came baptizing with water for this reason, that he might be revealed to Israel." And John testified, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'He on whom you see the Spirit descend and remain is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' And I myself have seen and have testified that this is the Son of God." The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, "Look, here is the Lamb of God!" The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which translated means Teacher), "where are you staying?" He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which is translated Anointed). He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, "You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).

Here ends the Reading.

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]
