Evensong January 7

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 114 In exitu Israel
  Hallelujah! When Israel came out of Egypt, *
the house of Jacob from a people of strange speech,
  Judah became God's sanctuary *
and Israel his dominion.
  The sea beheld it and fled; *
Jordan turned and went back.
  The mountains skipped like rams, *
and the little hills like young sheep.
  What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? *
O Jordan, that you turned back?
  You mountains, that you skipped like rams? *
you little hills like young sheep?
  Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, *
at the presence of the God of Jacob,
  Who turned the hard rock into a pool of water *
and flint-stone into a flowing spring.

Psalm 115 Non nobis, Domine
  Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your Name give glory; *
because of your love and because of your faithfulness.
  Why should the heathen say, *
"Where then is their God?"
  Our God is in heaven; *
whatever he wills to do he does.
  Their idols are silver and gold, *
the work of human hands.
  They have mouths, but they cannot speak; *
eyes have they, but they cannot see;
  They have ears but they cannot hear; *
noses, but they cannot smell;
  They have hands, but they cannot feel; feet, but they cannot walk; *
they make no sound with their throat.
  Those who make them are like them, *
and so are all who put their trust in them.
  O Israel, trust in the LORD; *
he is their help and their shield.
10   O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD; *
he is their help and their shield.
11   You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD; *
he is their help and their shield.
12   The LORD has been mindful of us, and he will bless us; *
he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron;
13   He will bless those who fear the LORD, *
both small and great together.
14   May the LORD increase you more and more, *
you and your children after you.
15   May you be blessed by the LORD, *
the maker of heaven and earth.
16   The heaven of heavens is the LORD'S, *
but he entrusted the earth to its peoples.
17   The dead do not praise the LORD, *
nor all those who go down into silence;
18   But we will bless the LORD, *
from this time forth for evermore. Hallelujah!


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 6:30-33, 6:48-51
So they said to him, "What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, 'He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'" Then Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh."
