Evening Prayer - Tuesday, June 30 2020

Tuesday after Proper 8



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


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 124

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



If the Lord had not been on our side
let Is-ra-el say this!
if the Lord had not been on our side,
when these men at-tacked us,

They would have swal-lowed us a-live,
when their an-ger raged a-gainst us.
The wat-er would have o-ver-pow-ered us;
the cur-rent would have o-ver-whelmed us.

The rag-ing wat-er would have o-ver-whelmed us.
The Lord de-serves our praise,
for he did not hand us o-ver as prey to their teeth.
We es-caped with our lives,

like a bird from a hun-ters snare.
The snare broke, and we es-caped.
Our de-liv-er-er is the Lord,
the Cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.

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 125

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zi-on,
which can-not be moved and will en-dure for-ev-er.
As the moun-tains sur-round Je-ru-sa-lem,
so the Lord sur-rounds his peo-ple, now and for-ev-er-more.

In-deed, the scep-ter of a wick-ed king
will not set-tle up-on the al-lot-ted land of the god-ly.
Oth-er-wise the god-ly might do what is wrong.
Do good, O Lord, to those who are mor-al-ly up-right!

As for those who are be-n-t on trav-el-ing a sin-ful path,
may the Lord re-move them,
a-long with those who be-have wick-ed-ly!
May Is-ra-el ex-pe-ri-ence peace!

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 126

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



When the Lord re-stored the well-be-ing of Zi-on,
we thought we were dream-ing.
At that time we laughed loud-ly
and we shout-ed for joy.

At that time the na-tions said,
The Lord has ac-com-plished great things for these peo-ple.
The Lord did in-deed ac-com-plish great things for us.
We were hap-py and re-joiced.

O Lord, re-store our well-being,
just as the streams in the ar-id south are re-plen-ished.
Those who shed tears as they plant
will shout for joy when they reap the har-vest.

The one who weeps as he walks a-long,
car-ry-ing his bag of seed,
will cer-tain-ly come in with a shout of joy,
car-ry-ing his sheaves of grain.

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 127

Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All     



If the Lord does not build house,
then those who build it work in vain.
If the Lord does not guard cit-y,
then the watch-man stands guard in vain.

It is vain for you to rise ear-ly,
for you to come home so late,
and work so hard for your food.
Yes, he pro-vides for those whom he loves

E-ven when they sleep he pro-vide.
Yes, sons are gift from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb is re-ward.
Sons born dur-ing ones youth are like ar-rows in war-ri-ors hand.

How bless-ed is the man
who fills his quiv-er with them!
They will not be put to shame
when they con-front en-e-mies at the cit-gate.

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 21:23-32


Now after Jesus entered the temple courts, the chief priests and elders of the people came up to him as he was teaching and said, “By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?” Jesus answered them, “I will also ask you one question. If you answer me then I will also tell you by what authority I do these things. Where did John’s baptism come from? From heaven or from people?” They discussed this among themselves, saying, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will say, ‘Then why did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From people,’ we fear the crowd, for they all consider John to be a prophet. ” So they answered Jesus, “We don’t know. ” Then he said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.

“What do you think? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today. ’ The boy answered, ‘I will not. ’ But later he had a change of heart and went. The father went to the other son and said the same thing. This boy answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but did not go. Which of the two did his father’s will?” They said, “The first. ” Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, tax collectors and prostitutes will go ahead of you into the kingdom of God! For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him. But the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe. Although you saw this, you did not later change your minds and believe 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.

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,

For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

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.

Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time
with one ac-cord

and you have prom-ised
through your well-be-lov-ed Son
that when two or three are ga-thered to-geth-er in his Name
you will be in the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions

and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
