Evening Prayer April 28 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 36 Dixit injustus
  There is a voice of rebellion deep in the heart of the wicked; *
there is no fear of God before his eyes.
  He flatters himself in his own eyes *
that his hateful sin will not be found out.
  The words of his mouth are wicked and deceitful; *
he has left off acting wisely and doing good.
  He thinks up wickedness upon his bed and has set himself in no good way; *
he does not abhor that which is evil.
  Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, *
and your faithfulness to the clouds.

  Your righteousness is like the strong mountains, your justice like the great deep; *
you save both man and beast, O LORD.
  How priceless is your love, O God! *
your people take refuge under the shadow of your wings.
  They feast upon the abundance of your house; *
you give them drink from the river of your delights.
  For with you is the well of life, *
and in your light we see light.
10   Continue your loving-kindness to those who know you, *
and your favor to those who are true of heart.

11   Let not the foot of the proud come near me, *
nor the hand of the wicked push me aside.
12   See how they are fallen, those who work wickedness! *
they are cast down and shall not be able to rise.

Psalm 39 Dixi, Custodiam
  I said, "I will keep watch upon my ways, *
so that I do not offend with my tongue.
  I will put a muzzle on my mouth *
while the wicked are in my presence."
  So I held my tongue and said nothing; *
I refrained from rash words; but my pain became unbearable.
  My heart was hot within me; while I pondered, the fire burst into flame; *
I spoke out with my tongue:
  LORD, let me know my end and the number of my days, *
so that I may know how short my life is.

  You have given me a mere handful of days, and my lifetime is as nothing in your sight; *
truly, even those who stand erect are but a puff of wind.
  We walk about like a shadow, and in vain we are in turmoil; *
we heap up riches and cannot tell who will gather them.
  And now, what is my hope? *
O Lord, my hope is in you.
  Deliver me from all my transgressions *
and do not make me the taunt of the fool.
10   I fell silent and did not open my mouth, *
for surely it was you that did it.

11   Take your affliction from me; *
I am worn down by the blows of your hand.
12   With rebukes for sin you punish us; like a moth you eat away all that is dear to us; *
truly, everyone is but a puff of wind.
13   Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear to my cry; *
hold not your peace at my tears.
14   For I am but a sojourner with you, *
a wayfarer, as all my forebears were.
15   Turn your gaze from me, that I may be glad again, *
before I go my way and am no more.

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 3:7-12

But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance. Do not presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our ancestor' for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 

"I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."

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.
