Evening Prayer April 27, 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.

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 9 Confitebor tibi
  I will give thanks to you, O LORD, with my whole heart; *
I will tell of all your marvelous works.
  I will be glad and rejoice in you; *
I will sing to your Name, O Most High.
  When my enemies are driven back, *
they will stumble and perish at your presence.
  For you have maintained my right and my cause; *
you sit upon your throne judging right.
  You have rebuked the ungodly and destroyed the wicked; *
you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.

  As for the enemy, they are finished, in perpetual ruin, *
their cities plowed under, the memory of them perished;
  But the LORD is enthroned for ever; *
he has set up this throne for judgment.
  It is he who rules the world with righteousness; *
he judges the peoples with equity.
  The LORD will be a refuge for the oppressed, *
a refuge in time of trouble.
10   Those who know your Name will put their trust in you, *
for you never forsake those who seek you, O LORD.

11   Sing praise to the LORD who dwells in Zion; *
proclaim to the peoples the things he has done.
12   The Avenger of blood will remember them; *
he will not forget the cry of the afflicted.
13   Have pity on me, O LORD; *
see the misery I suffer from those who hate me, O you who lift me up from the gate of death;
14   So that I may tell of all your praises and rejoice in your salvation *
in the gates of the city of Zion.
15   The ungodly have fallen into the pit they dug, *
and in the snare they set is their own foot caught.

16   The LORD is known by his acts of justice; *
the wicked are trapped in the works of their own hands.
17   The wicked shall be given over to the grave, *
and also all the people that forget God.
18   For the needy shall not always be forgotten, *
and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
19   Rise up, O LORD, let not the ungodly have the upper hand; *
let them be judged before you.
20   Put fear upon them, O LORD; *
let the ungodly know they are but mortal.


Psalm 15 Domine, quis habitabit?
  LORD, who may dwell in your tabernacle? *
who may abide upon your holy hill?
  Whoever leads a blameless life and does what is right, *
who speaks the truth from his heart.
  There is no guile upon his tongue; he does no evil to his friend; *
he does not heap contempt upon his neighbor.
  In his sight the wicked is rejected, *
but he honors those who fear the LORD.
  He has sworn to do no wrong *
and does not take back his word.

  He does not give his money in hope of gain, *
nor does he take a bribe against the innocent.
  Whoever does these things *
shall never be overthrown.

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 1:1-17, 3:1-6

An account of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham. Abraham was the father of Isaac, and Isaac the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers, and Judah the father of Perez and Zerah by Tamar, and Perez the father of Hezron, and Hezron the father of Aram, and Aram the father of Aminadab, and Aminadab the father of Nahshon, and Nahshon the father of Salmon, and Salmon the father of Boaz by Rahab, and Boaz the father of Obed by Ruth, and Obed the father of Jesse, and Jesse the father of King David. 

And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph, and Asaph the father of Jehoshaphat, and Jehoshaphat the father of Joram, and Joram the father of Uzziah, and Uzziah the father of Jotham, and Jotham the father of Ahaz, and Ahaz the father of Hezekiah, and Hezekiah the father of Manasseh, and Manasseh the father of Amos, and Amos the father of Josiah, and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon. 

And after the deportation to Babylon: Jechoniah was the father of Salathiel, and Salathiel the father of Zerubbabel, and Zerubbabel the father of Abiud, and Abiud the father of Eliakim, and Eliakim the father of Azor, and Azor the father of Zadok, and Zadok the father of Achim, and Achim the father of Eliud, and Eliud the father of Eleazar, and Eleazar the father of Matthan, and Matthan the father of Jacob, and Jacob the father of Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom Jesus was born, who is called the Messiah. 

So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations. 

In those days John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness of Judea, proclaiming, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near." This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, "The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.'" Now John wore clothing of camel's hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. Then the people of Jerusalem and all Judea were going out to him, and all the region along the Jordan, and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

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, the 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.
