Evensong January 8

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 112 Beatus vir
  Hallelujah! Happy are they who fear the Lord *
and have great delight in his commandments!
  Their descendants will be mighty in the land; *
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
  Wealth and riches will be in their house, *
and their righteousness will last for ever.
  Light shines in the darkness for the upright; *
the righteous are merciful and full of compassion.
  It is good for them to be generous in lending *
and to manage their affairs with justice.
  For they will never be shaken; *
the righteous will be kept in everlasting remembrance.
  They will not be afraid of any evil rumors; *
their heart is right; they put their trust in the Lord.
  Their heart is established and will not shrink, *
until they see their desire upon their enemies.
  They have given freely to the poor, *
and their righteousness stands fast for ever; they will hold up their head with honor.
10   The wicked will see it and be angry; they will gnash their teeth and pine away; *
the desires of the wicked will perish.
Psalm 113 Laudate, pueri
  Hallelujah! Give praise, you servants of the LORD; *
praise the Name of the LORD.
  Let the Name of the LORD be blessed, *
from this time forth for evermore.
  From the rising of the sun to its going down *
let the Name of the LORD be praised.
  The LORD is high above all nations, *
and his glory above the heavens.
  Who is like the LORD our God, who sits enthroned on high, *
but stoops to behold the heavens and the earth?
  He takes up the weak out of the dust *
and lifts up the poor from the ashes.
  He sets them with the princes, *
with the princes of his people.
  He makes the woman of a childless house *
to be a joyful mother of children.


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 7:37-52
On the last day of the festival, the great day, while Jesus was standing there, he cried out, "Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, 'Out of the believer's heart shall flow rivers of living water.'" Now he said this about the Spirit, which believers in him were to receive; for as yet there was no Spirit, because Jesus was not yet glorified. When they heard these words, some in the crowd said, "This is really the prophet." Others said, "This is the Messiah." But some asked, "Surely the Messiah does not come from Galilee, does he? Has not the scripture said that the Messiah is descended from David and comes from Bethlehem, the village where David lived?" So there was a division in the crowd because of him. Some of them wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him. Then the temple police went back to the chief priests and Pharisees, who asked them, "Why did you not arrest him?" The police answered, "Never has anyone spoken like this!" Then the Pharisees replied, "Surely you have not been deceived too, have you? Has any one of the authorities or of the Pharisees believed in him? But this crowd, which does not know the law-- they are accursed." Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus before, and who was one of them, asked, "Our law does not judge people without first giving them a hearing to find out what they are doing, does it?" They replied, "Surely you are not also from Galilee, are you? Search and you will see that no prophet is to arise from Galilee."
Here ends the Reading.
