Evening Prayer - May 29, 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.





Friday - 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 107:1-32


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good,
and his loy-al love en-dures!
Let those de-liv-ered by the Lord speak out,
those whom he de-liv-ered from the pow-er of the en-e-my,

and gath-ered from for-eign lands,
from east and west, from north and south.
They wan-dered through the wil-der-ness,
in a waste-land; they found no road to a cit-in which to live.

They were hun-gry and thirst-y;
they fainted from ex-haus-tion.
They cried out to the Lord in their dis-tress;
he de-liv-ered them from their trou-ble.

He led them on a lev-el road,
that they might find a cit-in which to live.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his loy-al love,
and for the a-maz-ing things he has done for peo-ple!

For he has sat-is-fied those who thirst,
and those who hun-ger he has filled with food.
They sat in ut-ter dark-ness, bound in pain-ful i-ron chains,
be-cause they had re-belled a-gainst Gods com-mands,

They re-ject-ed the in-struc-tions of the Most High.
So he used suf-fer-ing to hum-ble them;
they stum-bled and no one helped them up.
They cried out to the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-liv-eredthem from their trou-ble.
He brought them out of the ut-ter dark-ness,
and tore off their shack-les.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his loy-al love,

And for the a-maz-ing things he has done for peo-ple!
For he shat-tered the bronze gates,
and hacked through the i-ron bars.
They act-ed like fools in their re-bel-lious ways,

and suf-fered be-cause of their sins.
They lost their ap-pe-tite for all food,
and they drew near the gates of death.
They cried out to the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-liv-ered them from their trou-ble.
He sent them an as-sur-ing word and healed them;
he res-cued them from the pits where they were trapped.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his loy-al love,

Give thanks for the a-maz-ing things
God has done for his peo-ple!
Let them pre-sent thank of-fer-ings,
and loud-ly pro-claim what he has done!

Some trav-eled on the sea in ships,
and car-ried car-go o-ver the vast wat-ers.
They wit-nessed the acts of the Lord,
his a-maz-ing feats on the deep wat-er.

He gave the or-der for wind-storm,
and it stirred up the waves of the sea.
They reached up to the sky,
then dropped into the depths of the sea.

The sail-ors' strength left them be-cause the dan-ger was so great.
They swayed and stag-gered like drunk,
and all their skill proved in-ef-fec-tive.
They cried out to the Lord in their dis-tress;

He de-liv-ered them from their trou-ble.
He calmed the storm, and the waves grew si-lent.
The sail-ors re-joiced be-cause the waves grew qui-et,
And he led them to the har-bor they de-sired.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his loy-al love,
and for the a-maz-ing things he has done for peo-ple!
Let them ex-alt him in the as-sem-bly of the peo-ple!
Let them praise him in the place where the lead-ers pre-side!

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 9:9-17

As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax booth. “Follow me,” he said to him. So he got up and followed him. As Jesus was having a meal in Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with Jesus and his disciples. When the Pharisees saw this they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” When Jesus heard this he said, “Those who are healthy don’t need a physician, but those who are sick do. Go and learn what this saying means: ‘I want mercy and not sacrifice. ’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners. ”

Then John’s disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast often, but your disciples don’t fast?” Jesus said to them, “The wedding guests cannot mourn while the bridegroom is with them, can they? But the days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they will fast. No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, because the patch will pull away from the garment and the tear will be worse. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the skins burst and the wine is spilled out and the skins are destroyed. Instead they put new wine into new wineskins and both are preserved. ”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Friday - 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.



Friday 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.



Friday - 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.



Friday - Suffrages B


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

That this eve-ning may be ho-ly, good, and peace-ful,
We en-treat you, Lord.
That your ho-ly an-gels may lead us in paths of peace and good-will,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may be par-doned and for-giv-en for our sins and of-fenses,
We en-treat you, Lord.
That there may be peace to your Church and to the whole world,
We en-treat you, Lord.

That we may de-part this life in your faith and fear,
and be freed from con-dem-na-tion
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,
en-trust-ing one an-oth-er and all our life to Christ,
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 Fridays
Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your tender mercies' sake. 
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]
