Evening Prayer - Friday July 31 2020

Confession


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God, have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, keep us in eternal life.
Amen.


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.

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 73


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All  



Cer-tain-ly God is good to Is-ra-el,
and to those whose mo-tives are pure!
But as for me, my feet al-most slipped;
my feet al-most slid out from un-der me.

For I en-vied those who are proud,
as I ob-served the pros-per-i-ty of the wick-ed.
For they suf-fer no pain;
their bod-ies are strong and well-fed.

They are im-mune to the trou-ble com-mon to men;
they do not suf-fer as oth-er men do.
Ar-ro-gance is their neck-lace,
and vio-lence cov-ers them like cloth-ing.

Their pros-per-i-ty caus-es them to do wrong;
All their thoughts are sin-ful.
They mock and say e-vil things;
they proud-ly threat-en vio-lence.

They speak as if they rule in heav-en,
and lay claim to the earth.
There-fore they have more than e-nough food to eat,
and e-ven suck up the wat-er of the sea.

They say, How does God know what we do?
Is the Most High a-ware of what goes on?
Take a good look! This is what the wick-ed are like,
Those who al-ways have it so eas-y

They get rich-er and rich-er.
Sure-ly in vain I have kept my mo-tives pure
and main-tained a pure life-style.
suf-fer all day long,

I am pun-ished eve-ry morn-ing.
If I had pub-li-cized these thoughts,
I would have be-trayed your peo-ple.
When I tried to make sense of this,

it was trou-bling to me.
Then I en-tered the pre-cincts of God's tem-ple,
and un-der-stood the desti-ny of the wick-ed.
Sure-ly you put them in slip-per-plac-es;

You bring them down to ruin.
How des-o-late they be-come in mere mo-ment!
Ter-ri-fy-ing judg-ments make their de-mise com-plete!
They are like a dream af-ter one wakes up.

O Lord, when you a-wake you will de-spise them.
Yes, my spi-rit was bit-ter,
and my in-sides felt sharp pain.
I was ig-no-rant and lacked in-sight;

I was as sense-less as an an-i-mal be-fore you.
But I am con-tin-ual-ly with you;
And you hold my right hand.
You guide me by your wise ad-vice,

and then you will lead me
to a po-si-tion of hon-or.
Whom do I have in heav-en but you?
I de-sire no one but you on earth.

My flesh and my heart may grow weak,
but God al-ways pro-tects my heart
and gives me sta-bil-i-ty.
Yes, look! Those far from you die;

You de-stroy eve-ry-one who is un-faith-ful to you.
But as for me, Gods pres-ence is all need.
I have made the Sove-reign Lord my shel-ter,
as I de-clare all the things you have done.

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.

Readings


A reading from Acts 2:1-21


Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven and filled the entire house where they were sitting. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them.

Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven residing in Jerusalem. When this sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. Completely baffled, they said, “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that each one of us hears them in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and the province of Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabs – we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great deeds God has done!” All were astounded and greatly confused, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” But others jeered at the speakers, saying, “They are drunk on new wine!”

But Peter stood up with the eleven, raised his voice, and addressed them: “You men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, know this and listen carefully to what I say. In spite of what you think, these men are not drunk, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. But this is what was spoken about through the prophet Joel:
‘And in the last days it will be,’ God says,
‘that I will pour out my Spirit on all people,
and your sons and your daughters will prophesy,
and your young men will see visions,
and your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
And I will perform wonders in the sky above
and miraculous signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and clouds of smoke.
The sun will be changed to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes.
And then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’
Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!




Friday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All  





Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from the hands of our en-e-mies,
Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In the ten-der com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and the shad-ow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of 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.
A reading from Matthew 28:1-10


Now after the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb. Suddenly there was a severe earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descending from heaven came and rolled away the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were shaken and became like dead men because they were so afraid of him. 

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here, for he has been raised, just as he said. Come and see the place where he was lying. Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead. He is going ahead of you into Galilee. You will see him there.’ Listen, I have told you!” 

So they left the tomb quickly, with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. But Jesus met them, saying, “Greetings!” They came to him, held on to his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee. They will see me there.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Psalm 74


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Why, O God, have you per-ma-nent-ly re-ject-ed us?
Why does your an-ger burn a-gainst the sheep of your pas-ture?
Re-mem-ber your peo-ple
whom you ac-quired in an-cient times,

whom you res-cued
so they could be your ver-own na-tion,
as well as Mount Zi-on,
where you dwell for-ev-er!

Hur-ry to the per-ma-nent ruin,
and to all the dam-age the en-e-my has done to the tem-ple!
Your en-e-mies roar in the mid-dle of your sanc-tu-ar-y;
they set up their bat-tle flags.

They in-vade like lum-ber-jacks
swing-ing their ax-es in thick for-est.
And now they are tear-ing down all its en-grav-ings
with ax-es and crow-bars.

They set your sanc-tu-ar-on fire;
they des-e-crate your dwell-ing place
by knock-ing it to the ground.
They say to them-selves, We will op-press all of them.

They burn down all the places
where peo-ple wor-ship God in the land.
We do not see any signs of God's pres-ence;
there are no long-er any proph-ets

And we have no one
to tell us how long this will last.
How long, O God, will the ad-ver-sar-y hurl in-sult?
Will the en-e-my blas-pheme your name for-ev-er?

Why do you re-main in-ac-tive?
In-ter-vene and de-stroy him!
But God has been my king from an-cient times,
per-form-ing acts of de-liv-er-ance on the earth.

You de-stroyed the sea by your strength;
you shat-tered the heads of the sea mon-ster in the wat-er.
You crushed the heads of Le-vi-a-than;
you fed him to the peo-ple who live a-long the coast.

You broke o-pen the spring and the stream;
you dried up per-pet-ual-ly flow-ing riv-ers.
You es-tab-lished the cy-cle of day and night;
you put the moon and sun in place.

You set up all the bound-a-rys of the earth;
you cre-at-ed the cy-cle of sum-mer and win-ter.
Re-mem-ber how the en-e-my hurls in-sult, Lord,
and how a fool-ish na-tion blas-phemes your name!

Do not hand the life of your dove
o-ver to wild an-i-mal!
Do not con-tin-ue to dis-re-gard the lives
of your op-pressed peo-ple!

Re-mem-ber your cov-e-nant prom-ise,
for the dark re-gions of the earth
are full of places where vio-lence rules.
Do not let the af-flict-ed be turned back in shame!

Let the op-pressed and poor praise your name!
Rise up, O God! De-fend your hon-or!
Re-mem-ber how fools in-sult you all day long!
Do not dis-re-gard what your en-e-mies say,

Nor the un-ceas-ing shouts
of those who de-fy you.
Rise up, God!
De-fend your hon-or! A-men.

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.


Readings


A reading from Acts 1:15-26


In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a gathering of about one hundred and twenty people) and said, “Brothers, the scripture had to be fulfilled that the Holy Spirit foretold through David concerning Judas – who became the guide for those who arrested Jesus – for he was counted as one of us and received a share in this ministry.” (Now this man Judas acquired a field with the reward of his unjust deed, and falling headfirst he burst open in the middle and all his intestines gushed out. This became known to all who lived in Jerusalem, so that in their own language they called that field Hakeldama, that is, “Field of Blood.”) 

“For it is written in the book of Psalms, ‘Let his house become deserted, and let there be no one to live in it,’ and ‘Let another take his position of responsibility.’ Thus one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time the Lord Jesus associated with us, beginning from his baptism by John until the day he was taken up from us – one of these must become a witness of his resurrection together with us.” So they proposed two candidates: Joseph called Barsabbas (also called Justus) and Matthias. Then they prayed, “Lord, you know the hearts of all. Show us which one of these two you have chosen to assume the task of this service and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.” Then they cast lots for them, and the one chosen was Matthias; so he was counted with the eleven apostles.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

I will sing to the Lord,
for he is loft-and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my peo-ple and will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a might-y war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his ho-ly Name.
The char-i-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The fin-est of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fa-thom-less deep has o-ver-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like stone.

Your right hand, Lord,
is glo-ri-ous and might-y;
your right hand, Lord,
has o-ver-thrown the en-e-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glo-ri-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the peo-ple you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your ho-ly dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, Lord,

In the sanc-tu-ar-y, Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ev-er and for ev-er. A-men!

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:

A reading from Matthew 27:55-66


Many women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and given him support were also there, watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

Now when it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who was also a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut in the rock. Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance of the tomb and went away. (Now Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there, opposite the tomb.)

The next day (which is after the day of preparation) the chief priests and the Pharisees assembled before Pilate and said, “Sir, we remember that while that deceiver was still alive he said, ‘After three days I will rise again.’ So give orders to secure the tomb until the third day. Otherwise his disciples may come and steal his body and say to the people, ‘He has been raised from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.” Pilate said to them, “Take a guard of soldiers. Go and make it as secure as you can.” So they went with the soldiers of the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     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.

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.

Amen.

Prayer for Mission

O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh; and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions
as may be best for us;

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

LEVAS2 (L042)     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]
