Evening Prayer, May 2 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 42

All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

As the deer longs for the wa-ter brooks,
so longs my soul for you, God.
My soul is a-thirst for God,
a-thirst for the liv-ing God;

when shall I come to ap-pear
be-fore the pres-ence of God?
My tears have been my food day and night,
while all day long they say to me,

Where now is your God?
I pour out my soul when think on these things;
how I went with the mul-ti-tude
and led them into the house of God,

With the voice of praise and thanks-giv-ing,
a-mong those who keep ho--ly-day.
Why are you so full of heav-i-ness, my soul?
and why are you so dis-quiet-ed with-in me?

Put your trust in God;
for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my coun-te-nance, and my God.
My soul is heav-with-in me;

there-fore I will re-mem-ber you from the land of Jor-dan,
and from the peak of Miz-ar a-mong the heights of Herm-on.
One deep calls to an-oth-er
in the noise of your cat-a-ract;

all your rap-ids and floods have gone o-ver me.
The Lord grants his lov-ing kind-ness in the day-time;
in the night sea-son his song is with me,
a pray-er to the God of my life.

I will say to the God of my strength,
Why have you for-got-ten me?
and why do I go so heav-i-ly
while the en-e-mys op-press me?

While my bones are be-ing bro-ken,
my en-e-mys mock me to my face;
All day long they mock me
and say to me, Where now is your God?

Why are you so full of heav-i-ness, my soul?
and why are you so dis-quiet-ed with-in me?
Put all your trust in God;
for I will yet give thanks to him,

who is the help of my coun-te-nance, and my God.
Put all your trust in God;
for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my coun-te-nance, and my God.


Psalm 43

All     Cantor     Response     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

Give judg-ment for me, God,
and de-fend my cause a-gainst an un-god-ly peo-ple;
de-liv-er me from the de-ceit-ful and the wick-ed.
For you are the God of my strength;

Why have you put me from you?
and why do I go so heav-i-ly
while the en-e-my op-press me?
Send out your light and your truth,

that they may lead me,
and bring me to your ho-ly hill and to your dwell-ing;
That I may go to the al-tar of God,
to the God of my joy and glad-ness;

and on the harp I will give thanks to you, O God my God.
Why are you so full of heav-i-ness, my soul?
and why are you so dis-quiet-ed with-in me?
Put all your trust in God;

for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my coun-te-nance, and my God.
for I will yet give thanks to him,
who is the help of my coun-te-nance, and my 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 4:18-25

As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea-- for they were fishermen. And he said to them, "Follow me, and I will make you fish for people." Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him. 

Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought to him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he cured them. And great crowds followed him from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.

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.

Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

Refrain:
All glory, laud, and honor
to thee, Redeemer, King!
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
1. Thou art the King of Israel,
thou David's royal Son,
who in the Lord's Name comest,
the King and Blessed One. 
All glory, laud, and honor

are praising thee on high;
and we with all creation
in chorus make reply.

with palms before thee went;
our praise and prayer and anthems
before thee we present. 
All glory, laud, and honor

to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
4. To thee before thy passion
they sang their hymns of praise;
to thee, now high exalted,
our melody we raise. 
All glory, laud, and honor
to thee, Redeemer, King!
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
5. Thou didst accept their praises;
accept the prayers we bring,
who in all good delightest,
thou good and gracious King. 
All glory, laud, and honor
to thee, Redeemer, King!
to whom the lips of children
made sweet hosannas ring.
