Evening Prayer - Tuesday May 26, 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.




Tuesday - 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 94


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   


O Lord, the God who a-veng-es!
O God who a-veng-es, re-veal your splen-dor!
Rise up, O judge of the earth! Pay back the proud!
O Lord, how long will the wick-ed cel-e-brate?

They spew out threats and speak de-fi-ant-ly;
all the e-vil-do-ers boast.
O Lord, they crush your peo-ple;
they op-press the na-tion that be-longs to you.

They kill the wid-ow and the res-i-dent for-eign-er,
and they mur-der the fa-ther-less.
Then they say, The Lord does not see this;
the God of Ja-cob does not take no-tice of it.

Take no-tice of this, you ig-no-rant peo-ple!
You fools, when will you ev-er un-der-stand?
Does the one who makes the hu-man ear not hear?
Does the one who forms the hu-man eye not see?

Does the one who dis-ci-plines the na-tions not pun-ish?
He is the one who im-parts knowl-edge to hu-man be-ings!
The Lord knows that peo-ple's thoughts are mor-al-ly bank-rupt.
How bless-ed is the one whom you in-struct, Lord,

the one whom you teach from your law,
in or-der to pro-tect him from times of trou-ble,
un-til the wick-ed are de-stroyed.
Cer-tain-ly the Lord does not for-sake his peo-ple;

He does not a-ban-don the na-tion that be-longs to him.
For jus-tice will pre-vail,
and all the mor-al-ly up-right will be vin-di-cat-ed.
Who will rise up to de-fend me a-gainst the wick-ed?

Who will stand up for me
a-gainst the e-vil-do-er?
If the Lord had not helped me,
I would soon have dwelt in the si-lence of death.

If I say, My foot is slip-ping,
your loy-al love, Lord, sup-ports me.
When wor-ries threat-en to o-ver-whelm me,
your sooth-ing touch makes me hap-py.

Cruel rul-ers are not your al-lies,
those who make op-pres-sive laws.
They con-spire a-gainst the blame-less,
and con-demn to death the in-no-cent.

But the Lord will pro-tect me, and my God will shel-ter me.
He will pay them back for their sin.
He will de-stroy them be-cause of their e-vil.
the Lord our God will de-stroy them.

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.



Psalm 95


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

Come! Let us sing for joy to the Lord!
Let us shout out prais-es to our pro-tec-tor who de-liv-ers us!
Let us en-ter his pres-ence with thanks-giv-ing!
Let us shout out to him in cel-e-bra-tion!

For the Lord is great God,
a great king who is su-pe-ri-or to all gods.
The depths of the earth are in his hand,
and the moun-tain peaks be-long to him.

The sea is his, for he made it.
His hands formed the dry land.
Come! Let us bow down and wor-ship!
Let us kneel be-fore the Lord, our Cre-a-tor!

For he is our God;
and we are the peo-ple of his pas-ture,
the sheep he owns.
To-day, if on-ly you would o-bey him!

He says, Do not be stub-born like they were at Mer-i-bah,
like they were that day at Mas-sah in the wil-der-ness,
where your an-ces-tors chal-lenged my au-thor-i-ty,
and tried my pa-tience, e-ven though they had seen my work.

For for-ty years I was con-tin-ual-ly dis-gust-ed with that gen-er-a-tion,
and I said, These peo-ple de-sire to go a-stray;
they do not o-bey my com-mand.
So I made a vow in my an-ger,

They will nev-er en-ter into the re-sting place,
the place I had set a-side for them.
Do not be stub-born like they were at Mer-i-bah,
like they were that day at Mas-sah in the wil-der-ness.

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 8:18-27
Now when Jesus saw a large crowd around him, he gave orders to go to the other side of the lake. Then an expert in the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go. ” Jesus said to him, “Foxes have dens, and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head. ” Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father. ” But Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead. ”

As he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And a great storm developed on the sea so that the waves began to swamp the boat. But he was asleep. So they came and woke him up saying, “Lord, save us! We are about to die!” But he said to them, “Why are you cowardly, you people of little faith?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it was dead calm. And the men were amazed and said, “What sort of person is this? Even the winds and the sea obey him!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - 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.



Tuesday 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.



Tuesday - 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.

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]
