Evening Prayer March 30, 2010

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, Amen.

Confession of Sin



Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen.

The Invitatory and Psalter

V: O God, make speed | to save | us.
R: O Lord, | make haste | to help | us.

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!


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 35 Judica, Domine
  Fight those who fight me, O LORD; *
attack those who are attacking me.

  Take up shield and armor *
and rise up to help me.

  Draw the sword and bar the way against those who pursue me; *
say to my soul, "I am your salvation."

  Let those who seek after my life be shamed and humbled; *
let those who plot my ruin fall back and be dismayed.

  Let them be like chaff before the wind, *
and let the angel of the LORD drive them away.


  Let their way be dark and slippery, *
and let the angel of the LORD pursue them.

  For they have secretly spread a net for me without a cause; *
without a cause they have dug a pit to take me alive.

  Let ruin come upon them unawares; *
let them be caught in the net they hid; let them fall into the pit they dug.

  Then I will be joyful in the LORD; *
I will glory in his victory.

10   My very bones will say, "LORD, who is like you? *
You deliver the poor from those who are too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them."


11   Malicious witnesses rise up against me; *
they charge me with matters I know nothing about.

12   They pay me evil in exchange for good; *
my soul is full of despair.

13   But when they were sick I dressed in sack-cloth *
and humbled myself by fasting.

14   I prayed with my whole heart, as one would for a friend or a brother; *
I behaved like one who mourns for his mother, bowed down and grieving.

15   But when I stumbled, they were glad and gathered together; they gathered against me; *
strangers whom I did not know tore me to pieces and would not stop.


16   They put me to the test and mocked me; *
they gnashed at me with their teeth.

17   O Lord, how long will you look on? *
rescue me from the roaring beasts, and my life from the young lions.

18   I will give you thanks in the great congregation; *
I will praise you in the mighty throng.

19   Do not let my treacherous foes rejoice over me, *
nor let those who hate me without a cause wink at each other.

20   For they do not plan for peace, *
but invent deceitful schemes against the quiet in the land.


21   They opened their mouths at me and said, *
"Aha! we saw it with our own eyes."

22   You saw it, O LORD; do not be silent; *
O Lord, be not far from me.

23   Awake, arise, to my cause! *
to my defense, my God and my Lord!

24   Give me justice, O LORD my God, according to your righteousness; *
do not let them triumph over me.

25   Do not let them say in their hearts, "Aha! just what we want!" *
Do not let them say, "We have swallowed him up."


26   Let all who rejoice at my ruin be ashamed and disgraced; *
let those who boast against me be clothed with dismay and shame.

27   Let those who favor my cause sing out with joy and be glad; *
let them say always, "Great is the LORD, who desires the prosperity of his servant."
28   And my tongue shall be talking of your righteousness *
and of your praise all the day long.
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 Mark 9:30-41

They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again." But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the way?" But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all." 

Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me." John said to him, "Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us." But Jesus said, "Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.

Here ends the Reading.

The Song of Mary Magnificat
Luke 1:46-55
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him *
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm, *
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, *
to Abraham and his children for ever.

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! 

(Not in Lent) LEVAS2 (L243) Glory to God

Hymnal 1982 (S105) The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of his Father.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried;
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, and giver of Life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass
1 Nearer, my God, to Thee,
nearer to Thee!

That raiseth me;
Still all my song would be

All that Thou sendest me,
In mercy giv’n;
Angels to beckon me (refrain)

Bright with Thy praise,
Out of my stony griefs,

So by my woes to be [Refrain]

Cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly,
Still all my song shall be [Refrain]
