Evensong January 6

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 GhostAs 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 96 Cantate Domino
  Sing to the LORD a new song; *
sing to the LORD, all the whole earth.
  Sing to the LORD and bless his Name; *
proclaim the good news of his salvation from day to day.
  Declare his glory among the nations *
and his wonders among all peoples.
  For great is the LORD and greatly to be praised; *
he is more to be feared than all gods.
  As for all the gods of the nations, they are but idols; *
but it is the LORD who made the heavens.
  Oh, the majesty and magnificence of his presence! *
Oh, the power and the splendor of his sanctuary!
  Ascribe to the LORD, you families of the peoples; *
ascribe to the LORD honor and power.
  Ascribe to the LORD the honor due his Name; *
bring offerings and come into his courts.
  Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness; *
let the whole earth tremble before him.
10   Tell it out among the nations: "The LORD is King! *
he has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity."
11   Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea thunder and all that is in it; *
let the field be joyful and all that is therein.
12   Then shall all the trees of the wood shout for joy before the LORD when he comes, *
when he comes to judge the earth.
13   He will judge the world with righteousness *
and the peoples with his truth.

Psalm 100 Jubilate Deo
  Be joyful in the LORD, all you lands; *
serve the LORD with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
  Know this: The LORD himself is God; *
he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
  Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise; *
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
  For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; *
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.


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 52:7-10
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns." Listen! Your sentinels lift up their voices, together they sing for joy; for in plain sight they see the return of the LORD to Zion. Break forth together into singing, you ruins of Jerusalem; for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
Here ends the Reading.

A reading from Matthew 12:14-21
But the Pharisees went out and conspired against him, how to destroy him. When Jesus became aware of this, he departed. Many crowds followed him, and he cured all of them, and he ordered them not to make him known. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah: "Here is my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles. He will not wrangle or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. He will not break a bruised reed or quench a smoldering wick until he brings justice to victory. And in his name the Gentiles will hope."
Here ends the Reading.
