Evening Prayer - June 2, 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 47


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All

All you na-tions, clap your hands!
Shout out to God in cel-e-bra-tion!
For the Lord Most High is awe-in-spir-ing;
he is the great king who rules the whole earth!

He sub-dued na-tions be-neath us
and coun-tries un-der our feet.
He picked out for us a spe-cial land
to be a source of pride for Ja-cob, whom he loves.

God has a-scend-ed his throne a-mid loud shouts;
the Lord has a-scend-ed a-mid the blar-ing of rams horns.
Sing to God! Sing!
Sing to God our king! Sing!

For God is king of the whole earth!
Sing well-writ-ten song!
God reigns o-ver the na-tions!
God sits on his ho-ly throne!

The no-bles of the na-tions as-sem-ble,
a-long with the peo-ple of the God of A-bra-ham,
for God has au-thor-i-ty o-ver the rul-ers of the earth.
He is high-ly ex-alt-ed!

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 48


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All

The Lord is great and cer-tain wor-thy of praise
in the cit-y of our God, his ho-ly hill.
It is loft-y and pleas-ing to look at,
a source of joy to the whole earth.

Mount Zi-on re-sem-bles the peaks of Za-phon;
it is the cit-of the great king.
God is in its for-tress;
he re-veals him-self as its de-fend-er.

For look, the kings as-sem-ble;
they ad-vance to-geth-er.
As soon as they see, they are shocked;
they are ter-ri-fied, they quick-ly re-treat.

Look at them shake un-con-trol-la-bly,
like a wom-an writh-ing in child-birth.
With an east wind you shat-ter the large ship.
We heard a-bout God's might-deeds,

Now we have seen them,
in the cit-y of the Lord of Heav-en’s Ar-my,
in the cit-y of our God.
God makes it per-ma-nent-ly se-cure.

We re-flect on your loy-al love, O God, with-in your tem-ple.
The praise you re-ceive as far a-way as the ends of the earth
is wor-thy of your rep-u-ta-tion, O God. You ex-e-cute jus-tice!
Mount Zi-on re-joice; the towns of Ju-dah are hap-py,

be-cause of your acts of judg-ment.
Walk a-round Zi-on! En-cir-cle it!
Count its tow-ers!
Con-sid-er its de-fense!

Walk through its for-tress,
so you can tell the next gen-er-a-tion a-bout it!
For God, our God, is our de-fend-er for-ev-er!
It is the Lord who guides 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.

A reading from Matthew 13:53-58

Now when Jesus finished these parables, he moved on from there. Then he came to his hometown and began to teach the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and miraculous powers? Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother named Mary? And aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? And aren’t all his sisters here with us? So where did he get all this?” And so they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own house. ” And he did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.

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

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.

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.
