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.

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.

PSALMS


Psalm 78: Part II Quoties exacerbaverunt

40   How often the people disobeyed him in the |wilder|ness *
and offended |him in |the de|sert!
41   Again and again they |tempted |God *
and provoked the Holy |One of |Isra|el.
42   They did not remember |his po|wer *
in the day when he ransomed them from the enemy;
43   How he wrought his signs |in E|gypt *
and his omens |in the |field of |Zoan.
44   He turned their rivers |into |blood, *
so that they could |not drink |of their |streams.
45   He sent swarms of flies among them, which |ate them |up, *
and |frogs, which |destroyed |them.
46   He gave their crops to the cat|erpil|lar, *
the fruit of their |toil to |the lo|cust.
47   He killed their |vines with |hail *
and their |syca|mores with |frost.
48   He delivered their cattle |to hail|stones *
and their livestock |to hot |thunder|bolts.
49   He poured out upon them his blaz|ing an|ger: *
fury, indignation, and distress, a troop of |destroy|ing an|gels.
50   He gave full rein to his anger; he did not spare their |souls from |death; *
but delivered |their lives |to the |plague.
51   He struck down all the firstborn |of E|gypt, *
the flower of manhood in |the dwel|lings of |Ham.
52   He led out his peo|ple like |sheep *
and guided them in the wild|erness |like a |flock.
53   He led them to safety, and they were |not a|fraid; *
but the sea over|whelmed their |ene|mies.
54   He brought them to his |holy |land, *
the mountain |his right |hand had |won.
55   He drove out the Canaanites before them and apportioned an inheritance to |them by |lot; *
he made the tribes of Israel |to dwell |in their |tents.
56   But they tested the Most High God, and |defied |him, *
and did not |keep his |command|ments.
57   They turned away and were disloyal like |their fa|thers; *
they were undependable |like a |warped |bow.
58   They grieved him with their |hill-al|tars *
they provoked his displea|sure with |their i|dols.
59   When God heard this, he |was an|gry *
and utterly re|jected |Isra|el.
60   He forsook the shrine |at Shi|loh, *
the tabernacle where he had lived |among |his peo|ple.
61   He delivered the ark into cap|tivi|ty, *
his glory into the |adver|sary's |hand.
62   He gave his people |to the |sword *
and was angered against |his in|heri|tance.
63   The fire consumed |their young |men; *
there were no wedding |songs for |their mai|dens.
64   Their priests fell |by the |sword, *
and their widows made |no la|menta|tion.
65   Then the LORD woke as |though from |sleep, *
like a warri|or re|freshed with |wine.
66   He struck his enemies on |the back|side *
and put them to |perpe|tual |shame.
67   He rejected the tent |of Jo|seph *
and did not choose the |tribe of |Ephra|im;
68   He chose instead the tribe |of Ju|dah *
and Mount |Zion, |which he |loved.
69   He built his sanctuary like the heights |of hea|ven, *
like the earth which he |founded |for e|ver.
70   He chose David |his ser|vant, *
and took him a|way from |the sheep|folds.
71   He brought him from follo|wing the |ewes, *
to be a shepherd over Jacob his people and over Israel |his in|heri|tance.
72   So he shepherded them with a faithful |and true |heart *
and guided them with the skill|fulness |of his |hands.

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 7:53-8:11 Then each of them went home, while Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him and he sat down and began to teach them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery; and making her stand before all of them, they said to him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" They said this to test him, so that they might have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and wrote with his finger on the ground. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "Let anyone among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." And once again he bent down and wrote on the ground. When they heard it, they went away, one by one, beginning with the elders; and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Jesus straightened up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She said, "No one, sir." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you. Go your way, and from now on do not sin again."


Here ends the Reading.

CLOSING HYMN


Hymnal 1982 (H324) Let all mortal flesh keep silence



1 Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
and with fear and trembling stand;
ponder nothing earthly minded,
for with blessing in his hand
Christ our Lord to earth descendeth,
our full homage to command.
2 King of kings, yet born of Mary,
as of old on earth he stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
in the Body and the Blood
he will give to all the faithful
his own self for heavenly food.
3 Rank on rank the host of heaven
spreads its vanguard on the way.
as the Light of Light descendeth
from the realms of endless day,
that the powers of hell may vanish
as the darkness clears away.
4 At his feet the six-winged seraph;
cherubim, with sleepless eye
veil their faces to the Presence,
as with ceaseless voice they cry,
"Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, Lord Most High!"
