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 47 Omnes gentes, plaudite
1   Clap your hands, all  | you peo- | ples; *
shout to God  | with a | cry of  | joy.
2   For the LORD Most High is  | to be | feared; *
he is the great King  | over | all the |  earth.
3   He subdues the peoples  | under | us, *
and the  | nations  | under our  | feet.
4   He chooses our inheri-  | tance for | us, *
the pride of  | Jacob | whom he  | loves.
5   God has gone up  | with a | shout, *
the LORD with the  | sound of | the ram's  | horn.
6   Sing praises to God, |  sing prais- | es; *
sing praises to  | our King, | sing prais-  | es.
7   For God is King of  | all the | earth; *
sing prais-  | es with |  all your | skill.
8   God reigns over  | the na- | tions; *
God sits up-  | on his | holy  | throne.
9   The nobles of the peoples have gathered  | toge- | ther *
with the people of the  | God of | Abra- | ham.
10   The rulers of the earth be-  | long to | God, *
and he is  | highly |  exalt- | ed.

Psalm 48 Magnus Dominus
1   Great is the LORD, and highly  | to be | praised; *
in the city of our God  | is his | holy | hill.
2   Beautiful and lofty, the joy of all the earth, is the  | hill of | Zion, *
the very center of the world and the  | city of | the great | King.
3   God is in her  | cita- | dels; *
he is known to  | be her | sure re-  | fuge.
4   Behold, the kings of the earth  | assem- | bled *
and marched  | forward |  toge- | ther.
5   They looked and were  | astoun- | ded; *
they retreated  | and fled | in ter-  | ror.
6   Trembling  | seized them  | there; *
they writhed like a woman in childbirth, 
     like ships of the sea when the  | east wind | shatters | them.
7   As we have heard, so have we seen,
     in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city  | of our | God; *
God has esta-  | blished her |  for e- | ver.
8   We have waited in silence on your loving-kind-  | ness, O | God, *
in the  | midst of  | your tem- |  ple.
9   Your praise, like your Name, O God, reaches to  | the world's | end; *
your right hand  | is full | of jus-  | tice.
10   Let Mount Zion be glad and the cities of Ju-  | dah re- | joice, *
be-  | cause of  | your judg-  | ments.
11   Make the circuit of Zion; walk round  | about | her; *
count the number  | of her | towers.
12   Consider well her bulwarks; examine  | her strong | holds; *
that you may tell  | those who | come af-  | ter.
13   This God is our God for ever  | and e- | ver; *
he shall be our  | guide for | ever  | more.

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 1:14-28 (NRSV)
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea—for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John, who were in their boat mending the nets. Immediately he called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men, and followed him.
They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught. They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit, and he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him. They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, “What is this? A new teaching—with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.

Here ends the Reading.
