Evening Prayer - May 19,2020

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.
R: O Lord, | make haste | to help | us.

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!


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 78: Part II Quoties exacerbaverunt
40   How often the people disobeyed him in the wilderness *
and offended him in the desert!

41   Again and again they tempted God *
and provoked the Holy One of Israel.

42   They did not remember his power *
in the day when he ransomed them from the enemy;

43   How he wrought his signs in Egypt *
and his omens in the field of Zoan.

44   He turned their rivers into blood, *
so that they could not drink of their streams.


45   He sent swarms of flies among them, which ate them up, *
and frogs, which destroyed them.

46   He gave their crops to the caterpillar, *
the fruit of their toil to the locust.

47   He killed their vines with hail *
and their sycamores with frost.

48   He delivered their cattle to hailstones *
and their livestock to hot thunderbolts.

49   He poured out upon them his blazing anger: *
fury, indignation, and distress, a troop of destroying angels.


50   He gave full rein to his anger; he did not spare their souls from death; *
but delivered their lives to the plague.

51   He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, *
the flower of manhood in the dwellings of Ham.

52   He led out his people like sheep *
and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

53   He led them to safety, and they were not afraid; *
but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.

54   He brought them to his holy land, *
the mountain his right hand had won.


55   He drove out the Canaanites before them and apportioned an inheritance to them by lot; *
he made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.

56   But they tested the Most High God, and defied him, *
and did not keep his commandments.

57   They turned away and were disloyal like their fathers; *
they were undependable like a warped bow.

58   They grieved him with their hill-altars *
they provoked his displeasure with their idols.

59   When God heard this, he was angry *
and utterly rejected Israel.


60   He forsook the shrine at Shiloh, *
the tabernacle where he had lived among his people.

61   He delivered the ark into captivity, *
his glory into the adversary's hand.

62   He gave his people to the sword *
and was angered against his inheritance.

63   The fire consumed their young men; *
there were no wedding songs for their maidens.

64   Their priests fell by the sword, *
and their widows made no lamentation.


65   Then the LORD woke as though from sleep, *
like a warrior refreshed with wine.

66   He struck his enemies on the backside *
and put them to perpetual shame.

67   He rejected the tent of Joseph *
and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim;

68   He chose instead the tribe of Judah *
and Mount Zion, which he loved.

69   He built his sanctuary like the heights of heaven, *
like the earth which he founded for ever.


70   He chose David his servant, *
and took him away from the sheepfolds.

71   He brought him from following the ewes, *
to be a shepherd over Jacob his people and over Israel his inheritance.

72   So he shepherded them with a faithful and true heart *
and guided them with the skillfulness of his hands.



Glory to the Father, and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, 

and will be forever. Amen.


A reading from Matthew 13:18-23

"Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in the heart; this is what was sown on the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet such a person has no root, but endures only for a while, and when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, that person immediately falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the lure of wealth choke the word, and it yields nothing. But as for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."

Here ends the Reading.
Thanks be to God!


Thursday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spir-it re-joices in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me bless-ed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fa-thers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spir-it re-joices in God my Sav-ior;

Glor-y to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.



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.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

Hymnal 1982 (H593) Lord, make us servants of Your peace


Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

1 Lord, make us servants of your peace:
Where there is hate, may we sow love;
Where there is hurt, may we forgive;
Where there is strife, may we make one.

2 Where all is doubt, may we sow faith;
Where all is gloom, may we sow hope;
Where all is night, may we sow light;
Where all is tears, may we sow joy.
  
3 Jesus, our Lord, may we not seek
To be consoled, but to console,
Nor look to understanding hearts,
But look for hearts to understand.
  
4 May we not look for love's return,
But seek to love unselfishly,
For in our giving we receive,
And in forgiving are forgiven.

5 Dying, we live, and are reborn
Through death's dark night to endless day;
Lord, make us servants of your peace,
To wake at last in heaven's light.
