Evensong January 9

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 131 Domine, non est
  O LORD, I am not proud; *
I have no haughty looks.
  I do not occupy myself with great matters, *
or with things that are too hard for me.
  But I still my soul and make it quiet, like a child upon its mother's breast; *
my soul is quieted within me.
  O Israel, wait upon the LORD, *
from this time forth for evermore.
Psalm 132 Memento, Domine
  LORD, remember David, *
and all the hardships he endured;
  How he swore an oath to the LORD *
and vowed a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob:
  I will not come under the roof of my house, *
nor climb up into my bed;
  I will not allow my eyes to sleep, *
nor let my eyelids slumber;
  Until I find a place for the LORD, *
a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob."
  The ark! We heard it was in Ephratah; *
we found it in the fields of Jearim.
  Let us go to God's dwelling place; *
let us fall upon our knees before his footstool."
  Arise, O LORD, into your resting-place, *
you and the ark of your strength.
  Let your priests be clothed with righteousness; *
let your faithful people sing with joy.
10   For your servant David's sake, *
do not turn away the face of your Anointed.
11   The LORD has sworn an oath to David; *
in truth, he will not break it:
12   A son, the fruit of your body *
will I set upon your throne.
13   If your children keep my covenant and my testimonies that I shall teach them, *
their children will sit upon your throne for evermore."
14   For the LORD has chosen Zion; *
he has desired her for his habitation:
15   This shall be my resting-place for ever; *
here will I dwell, for I delight in her.
16   I will surely bless her provisions, *
and satisfy her poor with bread.
17   I will clothe her priests with salvation, *
and her faithful people will rejoice and sing.
18   There will I make the horn of David flourish; *
I have prepared a lamp for my Anointed.
19   As for his enemies, I will clothe them with shame; *
but as for him, his crown will shine."


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 8:12-19
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life." Then the Pharisees said to him, "You are testifying on your own behalf; your testimony is not valid." Jesus answered, "Even if I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is valid because I know where I have come from and where I am going, but you do not know where I come from or where I am going. You judge by human standards; I judge no one. Yet even if I do judge, my judgment is valid; for it is not I alone who judge, but I and the Father who sent me. In your law it is written that the testimony of two witnesses is valid. I testify on my own behalf, and the Father who sent me testifies on my behalf." Then they said to him, "Where is your Father?" Jesus answered, "You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also."
Here ends the Reading.
