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.

and to be glorified through all the worlds.

PSALMS

Psalm 9 Confitebor tibi
1   I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with  | my whole | heart; *
I will tell of | all your  | marve-lous | works.
2   I will be glad and re-/ joice in  | you; *
I will sing to  | your Name, |  O Most | High.
3   When my enemies are  | driv-en | back, *
they will stumble and  | per-ish | at your |  presence.
4   For you have maintained my right  | and my | cause; *
you sit upon  | your throne  | judging | right.
5   You have rebuked the ungodly and de-/ stroyed the  | wicked; *
you have blotted out their  | name for | ever and | ever.
6   As for the enemy, they are finished,  | in perpetual | ruin, *
their cities plowed under, the  | mem-ory | of them | perished;
7   But the LORD is  | enthroned for |  ever; *
he has set  | up this |  throne for | judgment.
8   It is he who rules the  | world with | righteousness; *
he  | judges the  | peoples with  | equity.
9   The LORD will be a refuge for  | the op- | pressed, *
a  | refuge in  | time of | trouble.
10   Those who know your Name will put their  | trust in | you, *
for you never forsake those  | who seek | you, O | LORD.
11   Sing praise to the LORD who  | dwells in | Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples  | the things | he has |  done.
12   The Avenger of blood will  | re-member | them; *
he will not forget the cry of the  | af-flict- | ed.
13   Have pity on  | me, O | LORD; *
see the misery I suffer from those who hate me,
         O you who lift me up  | from the | gate of  | death;
14   So that I may tell of all your praises and rejoice in your  | sal-va- | tion *
in the gates of the  | city of | Zion.
15   The ungodly have fallen into the  | pit they | dug, *
and in the snare they set  | is their | own foot |  caught.
16   The LORD is known by his  | acts of | justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the  | works of | their own | hands.
17   The wicked shall be given over  | to the | grave, *
and also all the  | people that | for-get  | God.
18   For the needy shall not always  | be forgot- | ten, *
and the hope of the poor shall  | not per- | ish for | ever.
19   Rise up, O LORD, let not the ungodly have the  | up-per | hand; *
let them  | be judged  | be-fore | you.
20   Put fear upon  | them, O | LORD; *

let the ungodly  | know they | are but  | mortal.

Psalm 15 Domine, quis habitabit?


1   LORD, who may dwell  | in your | tabernacle? *
who may abide  | upon your |  ho-ly | hill?
2   Whoever leads a blameless life and does  | what is | right, *
who speaks  | the truth  | from his |  heart.
3   There is no guile upon his tongue; he does no evil  | to his | friend; *
he does not heap  | con-tempt | upon his  | neighbor.
4   In his sight the wicked  | is re- | jected, *
but he honors  | those who |  fear the | LORD.
5   He has sworn to  | do no | wrong *
and does  | not take  | back his |  word.
6   He does not give his money in  | hope of | gain, *
nor does he take  | a bribe | against the  | innocent.
7   Whoever  | does these  | things *

shall  | never be  | ov-er- | thrown.




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 2:23-3:15

When he was in Jerusalem during the Passover festival, many believed in his name because they saw the signs that he was doing. But Jesus on his part would not entrust himself to them, because he knew all people and needed no one to testify about anyone; for he himself knew what was in everyone. 


Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God." Jesus answered him, "Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above." 


Nicodemus said to him, "How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother's womb and be born?" Jesus answered, "Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be astonished that I said to you, 'You must be born from above.' The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit." 


Nicodemus said to him, "How can these things be?" Jesus answered him, "Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things? "Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.

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
