Evening Prayer - May 25 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.

Glo-ry 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.




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 89:19-52


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

Then you spoke through vi-sion
to your faith-ful fol-low-ers and said:
I have placed a young he-ro o-ver a war-ri-or;
I have raised up a young man from the peo-ple.

I have dis-co-vered Da-vid, my serv-ant.
With my ho-ly oil I have a-noint-ed him as king.
My hand will sup-port him,
and my arm will strength-en him.

No en-e-my will be a-ble to ex-act trib-ute from him;
a vio-lent op-pres-sor will not be a-ble to hu-mil-i-ate him.
I will crush his en-e-mies be-fore him;
I will strike down those who hate him.

He will ex-pe-ri-ence my faith-ful-ness and loy-al love,
and by my name he will win vic-to-ry.
I will place his hand o-ver the sea,
his right hand o-ver the riv-ers.

He will call out to me,
You are my fath-er, my God,
and the pro-tec-tor who de-liv-ers me.
I will ap-point him to be my first-born son,

the most ex-alt-ed of the earth's kings.
I will al-ways ex-tend my loy-al love to him,
and my cov-e-nant with him is se-cure.
I will give him an e-ter-nal dy-nas-ty,

and make his throne as en-dur-ing as the skies a-bove.
If his sons re-ject my law and dis-o-bey my reg-u-la-tions,
if they break my rules
and do not keep my com-mand-ment,

I will pun-ish their re-bel-lion
by beat-ing them with club,
their sin by in-flict-ing them with bruis-es.
But I will not re-move my loy-al love from him.

I will not be un-faith-ful to my prom-ise.
I will not break my cov-e-nant
or go back on what prom-ised.
Once and for all I have vowed by my own ho-li-ness,

I will nev-er de-ceive Da-vid.
His dy-nas-ty will last for-ev-er.
His throne will en-dure be-fore me, like the sun,
it will re-main sta-ble, like the moon,

his throne will en-dure like the sky.
But you have spurned and re-ject-ed him;
you are an-gry with your cho-sen king.
You have re-pu-di-at-ed your cov-e-nant with your serv-ant;

You have thrown his crown to the ground.
You have bro-ken down all his walls;
you have made his strong-holds a heap of ru-ins.
All who pass by have robbed him;

he has be-come an ob-ject of dis-dain to his neigh-bors.
You have al-lowed his ad-ver-sar-ies to be vic-to-ri-ous,
and all his en-e-mies to re-joice.
You turn back his sword from the ad-ver-sar-y,

and have not sus-tained him in bat-tle.
You have brought to an end his splen-dor,
and have knocked his throne to the ground.
You have cut short his youth,

You have cov-ered him with shame.
How long, Lord, will this last?
Will you re-main hid-den for-ev-er?
Will your an-ger con-tin-ue to burn like fire?

Take note of my brief life span!
Why do you make all peo-ple so mor-tal?
No man can live on with-out ex-pe-ri-enc-ing death,
or de-liv-er his life from the pow-er of She-ol.

Where are your ear-li-er faith-ful deeds, Lord,
the ones per-formed in ac-cord-ance with your re-li-a-ble oath to Da-vid?
Take note, O Lord, of the way your serv-ants are taunt-ed,
and of how I must bear so man-y in-sults from peo-ple!

Your en-e-mies, O Lord, hurl in-sult;
they in-sult your cho-sen king as they dog his foot-steps.
The Lord de-serves praise for-ev-er-more!
We a-gree! We a-gree! A-men!

Glo-ry 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.


A reading from Matthew 8:5-17

When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him asking for help: “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible anguish. ”Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him. ” But the centurion replied, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof! Instead, just say the word and my servant will be healed. For I too am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave ‘Do this!’ and he does it. ”When Jesus heard this he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found such faith in anyone in Israel! I tell you, many will come from the east and west to share the banquet with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, but the sons of the kingdom will be thrown out into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. ” Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go; just as you believed, it will be done for you. ” And the servant was healed at that hour.

Now when Jesus entered Peter’s house, he saw his mother-in-law lying down, sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her. Then she got up and began to serve them. When it was evening, many demon-possessed people were brought to him. He drove out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick. In this way what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah was fulfilled:

He took our weaknesses and carried our diseases. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es 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 blessed:

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 fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

Glo-ry 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.



Monday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.



Monday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All

Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

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.

Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth: We humbly pray that your gracious providence may give and preserve to our use the harvests of the land and of the seas, and may prosper all who labor to gather them, that we, who are constantly receiving good things from your hand, may always give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

A Collect for Peace
Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgments, and all just works: Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give, so that our minds may be fixed on the doing of your will, and that we, being delivered from the fear of all enemies, may live in peace and quietness; through the mercies of Christ Jesus our Savior. Amen.

Prayer for Mission
O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship you, all nations obey you, all tongues confess and bless you, and men and women everywhere love you and serve you in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

LEVAS2 (42) He Lives    

PIANO   PARTS    SOPRANO    ALTO    TENOR    BASS

1. I serve a risen Savior, He's in the world today
I know that He is living whatever others say
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He's always near.

[Refrain]
He lives! He lives! Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
along life's narrow way.
He Lives! He lives! Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know he lives?
He lives within my heart.

2. In all the world around me I see His loving care
And though my heart grows weary, I never will despair;
I know that He is leading through all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing will come at last. [Refrain]

3. Rejoice, rejoice oh Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ, the King!
The hope of all who seek him, the help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind. [Refrain]
