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.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost

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.


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.

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
