Evening Prayer - May 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.

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.






Thursday - O Gracious Light


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

O gra-cious light, pure bright-ness
of the ev-erl-liv-ing Fath-er in heav-en,
O Je-sus Christ, ho-ly and bless-ed!
we sing your prais-es, God!

Now as we come to the set-ting of the sun,
and our eyes be-hold the ves-per light,
we sing your prais-es, God:
Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit.

You are wor-thy at all times
to be praised by hap-py voic-es,
O Son of God, O Giv-er of life,
and to be glo-ri-fied through all the world.



Psalm 105:23-45


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

Is-ra-el moved to E-gypt;
Ja-cob lived for a time in the land of Ham.
The Lord made his peo-ple ver-fruit-ful,
and made them more nu-mer-ous than their en-e-mies.

He caused them to hate his peo-ple,
and to mis-treat his serv-ants.
He sent his serv-ant Mo-ses,
and Aa-ron, whom he had cho-sen.

They ex-e-cut-ed his mi-rac-u-lous signs a-mong them,
and his a-maz-ing deeds in the land of Ham.
He made it dark;
they did not dis-o-bey his or-ders.

He turned their wa-ter into blood,
and He killed all their fish.
Their land was o-ver-run by frogs,
which e-ven got into the rooms of their kings.

He or-dered flies to come;
gnats in-vad-ed their whole ter-ri-to-ry.
He sent hail a-long with the rain;
there was light-ning in their land.

He de-stroyed their vines and fig trees,
and broke the trees through-out their ter-ri-to-ry.
He or-dered lo-custs to come,
in-nu-mer-a-ble grass-hop-pers.

They ate all the veg-e-ta-tion in their land,
and de-voured the crops of their fields.
He struck down all the first-born in their land,
the first fruits of their re-pro-duc-tive pow-er.

He brought his peo-ple out
en-riched with sil-ver and gold;
none of his tribes stum-bled.
E-gypt was hap-py when they left,

For they were a-fraid of them.
He spread out a cloud for cov-er,
and pro-vid-ed a fire to light up the night.
They asked for food, and he sent quail;

he sat-is-fied them with food from the sky.
He o-pened up a rock and wa-ter flowed out;
a riv-er ran through dry re-gions.
Yes, he re-mem-bered the sa-cred prom-ise

The prom-ise he made to A-bra-ham his serv-ant.
When he led his peo-ple out, they re-joiced;
his cho-sen ones shout-ed with joy.
He hand-ed the ter-ri-to-ry of na-tions o-ver to them,

and they took pos-ses-sion
of what oth-er peo-ples had pro-duced,
so that they might keep his com-mands and o-bey his laws.
Praise the Lord! Al-le-lu-ia! 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 9:1-8


After getting into a boat he crossed to the other side and came to his own town. Just then some people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Have courage, son! Your sins are forgiven. ”

Then some of the experts in the law said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming!” When Jesus perceived their thoughts he said, “Why do you respond with evil in your hearts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven’ or to say, ‘Stand up and walk’? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins” – then he said to the paralytic – “Stand up, take your stretcher, and go home. ” So he stood up and went home. When the crowd saw this, they were afraid and honored God who had given such authority to men.

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 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.


Thursday 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.


Thursday - Our Father


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. A-men.
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.


Thursday - Suffrages B


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All    

That this eve-ning may be ho-ly, good, and peace-ful,

be-fore the great judg-ment seat of Christ,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may be bound to-geth-er by your Ho-ly Spi-rit
in the com-mun-ion of Bar-na-bas and all your saints,

We en-treat you, Lord.


O God, the King of glory, you have exalted your only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph to your kingdom in heaven: Do not leave us comfortless, but send us your Holy Spirit to strengthen us, and exalt us to that place where our Savior Christ has gone before; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, in glory everlasting. 
Amen.

A Collect for the Presence of Christ
Lord Jesus, stay with us, for evening is at hand and the day is past; be our companion in the way, kindle our hearts, and awaken hope, that we may know you as you are revealed in Scripture and the breaking of bread. Grant this for the sake of your love. 
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]
