Evening Prayer - May 7,2020

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

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost

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 59 Eripe me de inimicis
  Rescue me from my enemies, O God; *
protect me from those who rise up against me.
  Rescue me from evildoers *
and save me from those who thirst for my blood.
  See how they lie in wait for my life, 
          how the mighty gather together against me; *
not for any offense or fault of mine, O LORD.
  Not because of any guilt of mine *
they run and prepare themselves for battle.
  Rouse yourself, come to my side, and see; *
for you, LORD God of hosts, are Israel's God.

  Awake, and punish all the ungodly; *
show no mercy to those who are faithless and evil.
  They go to and fro in the evening; *
they snarl like dogs and run about the city.
  Behold, they boast with their mouths, 
          and taunts are on their lips; *
"For who, they say, will hear us?"
  But you, O LORD, you laugh at them; *
you laugh all the ungodly to scorn.
10   My eyes are fixed on you, O my Strength; *
for you, O God, are my stronghold.

11   My merciful God comes to meet me; *
God will let me look in triumph on my enemies.
12   Slay them, O God, lest my people forget; *
send them reeling by your might 
     and put them down, O Lord our shield.
13   For the sins of their mouths, for the words of their lips, 
          for the cursing and lies that they utter, *
let them be caught in their pride.
14   Make an end of them in your wrath; *
make an end of them, and they shall be no more.
15   Let everyone know that God rules in Jacob, *
and to the ends of the earth.

16   They go to and fro in the evening; *
they snarl like dogs and run about the city.
17   They forage for food, *
and if they are not filled, they howl.
18   For my part, I will sing of your strength; *
I will celebrate your love in the morning;
19   For you have become my stronghold, *
a refuge in the day of my trouble.
20   To you, O my Strength, will I sing; *
for you, O God, are my stronghold and my merciful God.

Psalm 60 Deus, repulisti nos
  O God, you have cast us off and broken us; *
you have been angry; oh, take us back to you again.
  You have shaken the earth and split it open; *
repair the cracks in it, for it totters.
  You have made your people know hardship; *
you have given us wine that makes us stagger.
  You have set up a banner for those who fear you, *
to be a refuge from the power of the bow.
  Save us by your right hand and answer us, *
that those who are dear to you may be delivered.

  God spoke from his holy place and said: *
"I will exult and parcel out Shechem; 
     I will divide the valley of Succoth.
  Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine; *
Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my scepter.
  Moab is my wash-basin, 
     on Edom I throw down my sandal to claim it, *
and over Philistia will I shout in triumph."
  Who will lead me into the strong city? *
who will bring me to Edom?
10   Have you not cast us off, O God? *
you no longer go out, O God, with our armies.

11   Grant us your help against the enemy, *
for vain is the help of man.
12   With God we will do valiant deeds, *
and he shall tread our enemies underfoot.
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 5:21-26

"You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, 'You shall not murder' and 'whoever murders shall be liable to judgment.' But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment; and if you insult a brother or sister, you will be liable to the council; and if you say, 'You fool,' you will be liable to the hell of fire. 

"So when you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift. Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are on the way to court with him, or your accuser may hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.

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.
