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.

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 Ghost

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.


Psalm 68:1-20, 24-36

1 O God, arise, and let your enemies | be scat|tered; *
let those who hate | you flee | before | you.
2 Let them vanish like smoke when the wind drives | it a|way; *
as the|  wax melts at the fire,
so let the wicked perish at | the pre|sence of | God.
3 But let the righteous be glad and rejoice | before | God; *
let them also be | merry | and joy|ful.
4 Sing to God, sing praises to God’s Name;
exalt the One who rides upon |the hea|vens; *
The Name of our God is the LORD; re|joice be|fore the | LORD!
5 Defender of widows, father |of or|phans, *
God in heaven’s ho|ly ha|bita|tion!
6 God gives the solitary a home and brings forth prisoners in|to free|dom; *
but the rebels shall | live in | dry plac|es.
7 O God, when you went forth before | your peo|ple, *
when you marched | through the | wilder|ness,
8 The earth shook, and the skies poured down rain,
at the presence of God, the God | of Si|nai, *
at the presence of God, the |God of |Isra|el.
9 You sent a gracious rain, O God, upon your in|herit|ance; *
you refreshed the land | when it | was wear|y.
10 Your people found their | home in | it; *
in your goodness, O God, you have made pro|vision | for the | poor.
11 The Lord | gave the | word; *
great was the company of women | who bore | the ti|dings:
12 ”Kings with their armies are flee|ing a|way; *
the women at home are | divi|ding the | spoils.”
13 Though you lingered among | the sheep|folds, *
you shall be like a dove whose wings are covered with sil|ver,
whose fea|thers are | like green | gold.
14 When the Almighty | scattered | kings, *
it was like snow | falling | in Zal|mon.
15 O mighty mountain, O hill | of Ba|shan! *
O rugged mountain, | O hill | of Ba|shan!
16 Why do you look with envy, O rugged mountain,
at the hill which God | chose to | rest? *
truly the LORD will | dwell there | for e|ver.
17 The chariots of God are twenty thousand,
even thousands | of thou|sands; *
the Lord comes in | holiness |from Si|nai.
18 You have gone up on high and led captivity captive;
you have received gifts even from your | ene|mies, *
that the LORD God | might dwell | among | them.
19 Blessed be the Lord | day by | day, *
the God of our salvation, | who bears | our bur|dens.
20 You are our God, the God of our | salva|tion; *
God is the LORD, by | whom we | escape | death.

24 They see your proces|sion, O | God, *
your procession into the sanctuary, my | Sovereign | and my | God.
25 The singers go before, musicians fol|low af|ter, *
in the midst of the maidens playing | upon | the hand-|drums.
26 Bless God in the con|grega|tion; *
bless the LORD, you that are of the foun|tain of | Isra|el.
27 There is Benjamin, least of the tribes, at the head;
the princes of Judah in a | compan|y; *
and the princes of Zebu|lon and | Naphta|li.
28 Send forth your | strength, O | God; *
establish, O God, what | you have | wrought for | us.
29 Rulers shall bring | gifts to | you, *
for your temple’s sake | at Je|rusa|lem.
30 Rebuke the wild beast | of the | reeds, *
and the peoples, a herd of | wild bulls | with its | calves.
31 Trample down those who lust af|ter sil|ver; *
scatter the peoples | that de|light in | war.
32 Let tribute be brought out | of E|gypt; *
let Ethiopia stretch | out her | hands to | God.
33 Sing to God, O realms | of the | earth; *
sing | praises | to the | Lord.
34 God rides in the heavens, the an|cient hea|vens; *
God’s voice thunders | forth, a | mighty | voice.
35 Ascribe po|wer to | God; *
whose majesty is over Isra|el;
whose | strength is | in the | skies.
36 How wonderful is God in the ho|ly plac|es! *
the God of Israel giving strength and power to |the cho|sen peo|ple!

Bles|sed be | God!

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

Mark 3:19b-35 (NRSV)
Then Jesus went home; and the crowd came together again, so that they could not even eat. When his family heard it, they went out to restrain him, for people were saying, “He has gone out of his mind.” And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebul, and by the ruler of the demons he casts out demons.” And he called them to him, and spoke to them in parables, “How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand, but his end has come. But no one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his property without first tying up the strong man; then indeed the house can be plundered.
“Truly I tell you, people will be forgiven for their sins and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit can never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin”—for they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.” Then his mother and his brothers came; and standing outside, they sent to him and called him. A crowd was sitting around him; and they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers and sisters are outside, asking for you.” And he replied, “Who are my mother and my brothers?” And looking at those who sat around him, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers! Whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.”
Here ends the Reading.
