Evening Prayer May 12, 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

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 68 Exsurgat Deus
  Let God arise, and let his enemies be scattered; *
let those who hate him flee before him.
  Let them vanish like smoke when the wind drives it away; *
as the wax melts at the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.
  But let the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; *
let them also be merry and joyful.
  Sing to God, sing praises to his Name; exalt him who rides upon the heavens; *
YAHWEH is his Name, rejoice before him!
  Father of orphans, defender of widows, *
God in his holy habitation!

  God gives the solitary a home and brings forth prisoners into freedom; *
but the rebels shall live in dry places.
  O God, when you went forth before your people, *
when you marched through the wilderness,
  The earth shook, and the skies poured down rain, at the presence of God, the God of Sinai, *
at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
  You sent a gracious rain, O God, upon your inheritance; *
you refreshed the land when it was weary.
10   Your people found their home in it; *
in your goodness, O God, you have made provision for the poor.

11   The Lord gave the word; *
great was the company of women who bore the tidings:
12   Kings with their armies are fleeing away; *
the women at home are dividing the spoils.
13   Though you lingered among the sheepfolds, *
you shall be like a dove whose wings are covered with silver, 
     whose feathers are like green gold.
14   When the Almighty scattered kings, *
it was like snow falling in Zalmon.
15   O mighty mountain, O hill of Bashan! *
O rugged mountain, O hill of Bashan!

16   Why do you look with envy, O rugged mountain, at the hill which God chose for his resting place? *
truly, the LORD will dwell there for ever.
17   The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of thousands; *
the Lord comes in holiness from Sinai.
18   You have gone up on high and led captivity captive; you have received gifts even from your enemies, *
that the LORD God might dwell among them.
19   Blessed be the Lord day by day, *
the God of our salvation, who bears our burdens.
20   He is our God, the God of our salvation; *
God is the LORD, by whom we escape death.

21   God shall crush the heads of his enemies, *
and the hairy scalp of those who go on still in their wickedness.
22   The Lord has said, "I will bring them back from Bashan; *
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea;
23   That your foot may be dipped in blood, *
the tongues of your dogs in the blood of your enemies."
24   They see your procession, O God, *
your procession into the sanctuary, my God and my King.
25   The singers go before, musicians follow after, *
in the midst of maidens playing upon the hand-drums.

26   Bless God in the congregation; *
bless the LORD, you that are of the fountain of Israel.
27   There is Benjamin, least of the tribes, at the head; the princes of Judah in a company; *
and the princes of Zebulon and Naphtali.
28   Send forth your strength, O God; *
establish, O God, what you have wrought for us.
29   Kings shall bring gifts to you, *
for your temple's sake at Jerusalem.
30   Rebuke the wild beast of the reeds, *
and the peoples, a herd of wild bulls with its calves.

31   Trample down those who lust after silver; *
scatter the peoples that delight in war.
32   Let tribute be brought out of Egypt; *
let Ethiopia stretch out her hands to God.
33   Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth; *
sing praises to the Lord.
34   He rides in the heavens, the ancient heavens; *
he sends forth his voice, his mighty voice.
35   Ascribe power to God; *
his majesty is over Israel; his strength is in the skies.
36   How wonderful is God in his holy places! *
the God of Israel giving strength and power to his people! Blessed be God!

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 6:7-15

"When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. 

"Pray then in this way: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us to the time of trial, but rescue us from the evil one. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

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. 

The Prayers

V: The Lord be with you.
R: And also with you.

Our Father in heaven, 
hallowed be your Name, 
your kingdom come, 
your will be done, on earth as in heaven. 

Give us today our daily bread. 
Forgive us our sins 
as we forgive those who sin against us. 
Save us from the time of trial, 

and deliver us from evil. 
For the kingdom, the power, 
and the glory are yours, n
ow and for ever. Amen.

671 - Amazing Grace


Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, 
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found; 
was blind but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, 
and grace my fear relieved;
How precious did that grace appear 
the hour I first believed.

The Lord has promised good to me, 
His Word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be 
as long as life endures.

Through many dangers, toils and snares 
I have already come
'Tis grace that brought me safe thus far, 
and grace will lead me home.

When we've been there ten thousand year, 
bright shining as the sun,
We've no less days to sing God's praise 
than when we'd first begun.
