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.


Psalm 78:40-72

40 How often the people disobeyed God in the | wilder|ness *
and offended the | LORD in | the de|sert!
41 Again and again they | tempted | God *
and provoked the Holy | One of | Isra|el.
42 They did not remember | God’s po|wer *
in the day when God ransomed them | from the | ene|my;
43 How God wrought signs | in E|gypt *
and omens | in the | field of | Zoan.
44 God turned their rivers | into | blood, *
so that they could | not drink | of their | streams.
45 God sent swarms of flies among them, which | ate them | up, *
And | frogs, which | destroyed | them.
46 God gave their crops to the cat|erpill|ar, *
the fruit of their | toil to | the lo|cust.
47 God killed their | vines with | hail *
and their | syca|mores with | frost.
48 God delivered their cattle | to hail|stones *
and their livestock | to hot | thunder| bolts.
59 God poured out upon them bla|zing an|ger: *
fury, indignation, and distress,
a troop of | destroy|ing an|gels.
50 God did not spare their | souls from | death; *
but delivered | their lives | to the | plague.
51 God struck down all the firstborn | of E|gypt, *
the flower of manhood in | the dwel|lings of | Ham.
52 God led out the chosen peo|ple like | sheep *
and guided them in the wil|derness | like a | flock.
53 God led them to safety, and they were | not a|fraid; *
but the sea over|whelmed their | ene|mies.
54 God brought them to the | holy | land, *
to the mountain | won by | God’s own | hand.
55 The LORD drove out the Canaanites before them
and apportioned an inheritance to | them by | lot; *
God made the tribes of Israel | to dwell | in their | tents.
56 But they tested and de|fied the | LORD, *
and did not keep the command|ments of | the Most | High.
57 They turned away and were disloyal like their | ances|tors; *
they were undependable | like a | warped | bow.
58 They grieved God with their | hill-al|tars *
and provoked God’s displea|sure with | their i|dols.
59 Hearing this, God | was an|gry *
and utterly re|jected | Isra|el.
60 God forsook the shrine | at Shi|loh, * 
the tabernacle where God had | lived a|mong mor|tals.
61 God delivered the ark into cap|tivi|ty, *
God’s glory into the | adver|sary’s |hand.
62 God gave the chosen people | to the | sword *
and was mightily | angered | against | them.
63 The fire consumed | their young | men; *
there were no wedding songs | for their | young wo|men.
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 These enemies God struck on | the back|side *
and put them to | perpe|tual | shame.
67 God rejected the tent | of Jo|seph *
and did not choose the | tribe of | Ephra|im;
68 God chose instead the tribe | of Ju|dah *
and Mount | Zion, the | belo|ved.
69 God built the holy sanctuary like the heights | of hea|ven, *
like the earth which God | founded | for e|ver.
60 God chose Da|vid to | serve, *
and took him a|way from | the sheep|folds.
71 God brought him from ten|ding the | sheep, *
to be a shepherd over Jacob, the chosen people,
and over Israel, the cho|sen in|heri|tance.
72 So David 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

Mark 6:1-13 (NRSV)

Jesus left that place and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, “Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. Then Jesus said to them, “Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house.” And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief.

Then he went about among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.” So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Here ends the Reading.

LEVAS2 (L029) Near the cross

Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

1 Jesus, keep me near the cross,
There’s a precious fountain;
Free to all, a healing stream
Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.
2 In the cross, in the cross
Be my glory ever;
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river.
3 Near the cross, a trembling soul,
Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
Sheds its beams around me.
4 Near the cross! O Lamb of God,
Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day
With its shadows o’er me.
5 Near the cross, I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever,
Till I reach the golden strand
Just beyond the river.
