Evening Prayer April 16 2020

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.

The Invitatory and Psalter

V: O God, make speed | to save | us.

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 148 Laudate Dominum
  Hallelujah! Praise the LORD from the heavens; *
praise him in the heights.
  Praise him, all you angels of his; *
praise him, all his host.
  Praise him, sun and moon; *
praise him, all you shining stars.
  Praise him, heaven of heavens, *
and you waters above the heavens.
  Let them praise the Name of the LORD; *
for he commanded, and they were created.

  He made them stand fast for ever and ever; *
he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
  Praise the LORD from the earth, *
you sea-monsters and all deeps;
  Fire and hail, snow and fog, *
tempestuous wind, doing his will;
  Mountains and all hills, *
fruit trees and all cedars;
10   Wild beasts and all cattle, *
creeping things and wing├Ęd birds;

11   Kings of the earth and all peoples, *
princes and all rulers of the world;
12   Young men and maidens, *
old and young together.
13   Let them praise the Name of the LORD, *
for his Name only is exalted, his splendor is over earth and heaven.
14   He has raised up strength for his people and praise for all his loyal servants, *
the children of Israel, a people who are near him. Hallelujah!


Psalm 149 Cantate Domino
  Hallelujah! Sing to the LORD a new song; *
sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful.
  Let Israel rejoice in his Maker; *
let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
  Let them praise his Name in the dance; *
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.
  For the LORD takes pleasure in his people *
and adorns the poor with victory.
  Let the faithful rejoice in triumph; *
let them be joyful on their beds.

  Let the praises of God be in their throat *
and a two-edged sword in their hand;
  To wreak vengeance on the nations *
and punishment on the peoples;
  To bind their kings in chains *
and their nobles with links of iron;
  To inflict on them the judgment decreed; *
this is glory for all his faithful people. Hallelujah!

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 Matthew 28:16-20

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Here ends the Reading.
Thanks be to God!


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 forever.

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! 


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 in 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.

Our Father, which art in heaven,
Hallowed be thy name,

forever. Amen.

PIANO     PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS

1. I serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today
I know that He is living whatever others say
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

[Refrain]
He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
along life's narrow way.
He Lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know he lives?
He lives within my heart.

And though my heart grows weary, I never will despair;
I know that He is leading through all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing will come at last. [Refrain]

Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King!
The hope of all who seek him, the help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind. [Refrain]
