Evening Prayer - June 4, 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.

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

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

De-liv-er me from my en-e-mies, my God!
Pro-tect me from those who at-tack me!
De-liv-er me from e-vil-do-ers!
Res-cue me from vio-lent men!

For look, they wait to am-bush me;
pow-er-ful men stalk me,
but not be-cause I have re-belled or sinned, Lord.
Though I have done noth-ing wrong, they are anx-ious to at-tack.

Spring into ac-tion and help me! Take no-tice of me!
You, O Lord God of Heav-ens Ar-my, the God of Is-ra-el,
Rouse your-self and pun-ish all the na-tions!
Have no mer-cy on any treach-er-ous e-vil-do-er!

They re-turn in the eve-ning;
they growl like a dog and prowl a-round out-side the cit-y.
Look, they hurl in-sults at me
and o-pen-ly threat-en to kill me,

For they say, Who hears?
But you, O Lord, laugh in dis-gust at them;
you taunt all the na-tions.
You are my source of strength!

I will wait for you!
For God is my ref-uge.
The God who loves me will help me;
God will en-a-umph o-ver my en-e-mies.

Do not strike them dead sud-den-ly,
be-cause then my peo-ple might for-get the les-son.
Use your pow-er to make them home-less vag-a-bonds
and then bring them down, Lord who shields us!

They speak sin-ful words.
So let them be trapped by their own pride
and by the curs-es and lies they speak!
An-gri-ly wipe them out!

Wipe them out so they van-ish!
Let them know that God rules in Ja-cob
and to the ends of the earth!
They re-turn in the eve-ning;

They growl like a dog and prowl a-round out-side the cit-y.
They wan-der a-round look-ing for some-thing to eat;
they re-fuse to sleep unt-il they are full.
As for me, I will sing a-bout your strength;

I will praise your loy-al love in the morn-ing.
For you are my ref-uge
and my place of shel-ter when I face trou-ble.
You are my source of strength!

I will sing prais-es to you!
For God is my ref-uge,
the God who loves me.
You are my source of strength!

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 60

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All   

O God, you have re-ject-ed us.
You sud-den-ly turned on us in your an-ger.
Please re-store us!
You made the earth quake; you split it o-pen.

Re-pair its breach, for it is read-to fall.
You have made your peo-ple ex-pe-ri-ence hard times;
you have made us drink in-tox-i-cat-ing wine.
You have giv-en your loy-al fol-low-ers ral-ly-ing flag,

so that they might seek safe-ty from the bow.
De-liv-er by your pow-er and an-swer me,
so that the ones you love may be safe.
God has spo-ken in his sanc-tu-ar-y:

I will tri-umph! I will par-cel out She-chem;
the Val-ley of Suc-coth will meas-ure off.
Gi-le-ad be-longs to me, as does Ma-nas-seh!
E-phra-im is my hel-met, Ju-dah my roy-al scep-ter.

Mo-ab is my wash-ba-sin.
I will make E-dom serve me.
I will shout in tri-umph o-ver Phi-lis-ti-a.
Who will lead me into the for-ti-fied cit-y?

Who will bring me to E-dom?
Have you not re-ject-ed us, God?
O God, you do not go into bat-tle with our ar-my.
Give us help a-gainst the en-e-my,

for any help men might of-fer is fu-tile.
By God's pow-er we will con-quer;
he will tram-ple down our en-e-my.
O God, Give us help a-gainst the en-e-my,

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 14:13-21

Now when Jesus heard this he went away from there privately in a boat to an isolated place. But when the crowd heard about it, they followed him on foot from the towns. As he got out he saw the large crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. When evening arrived, his disciples came to him saying, “This is an isolated place and the hour is already late. Send the crowds away so that they can go into the villages and buy food for themselves. ” But he replied, “They don’t need to go. You give them something to eat. ” They said to him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish. ” “Bring them here to me,” he replied. Then he instructed the crowds to sit down on the grass. He took the five loaves and two fish, and looking up to heaven he gave thanks and broke the loaves. He gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the broken pieces left over, twelve baskets full. Not counting women and children, there were about five thousand men who ate.

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.

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. 

Thursday - Our Father

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

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. 

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. 

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.
