Evening Prayer - Friday July 10 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


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 22


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




My God, my God,
why have you a-ban-doned me?
groan in prayer,
but help seems far a-way.

My God, I cry out dur-ing the day,
but you do not an-swer,
and dur-ing the night
my prayers do not let up.

You are ho-ly;
you re-ceive the prais-es of Is-ra-el.
In you our an-ces-tors trusted;
they trusted in you and you res-cued them.

To you they cried out, and they were saved;
in you they trusted and they were not dis-ap-point-ed.
But I am a worm, not man;
peo-ple in-sult me and de-spise me.

All who see me taunt me;
they mock me and shake their heads.
They say, Com-mit your-self to the Lord!
Let the Lord res-cue him!

Let the Lord de-liv-er him,
for he de-lights in him.
Yes, you are the one
who brought me out from the womb

and made me feel se-cure
set up-on my moth-ers breast.
I have been de-pend-ent on you since birth;
from the time I came out of my moth-ers womb

you have been my God.
Do not re-main far a-way from me,
for trou-ble is near
and I have no one to help me.

Man-y bulls sur-round me;
pow-er-ful bulls of Ba-shan hem me in.
They o-pen their mouths to de-vour me
like a roar-ing li-on that rips its prey.

My strength drains a-way like wat-er;
all my bones are dis-lo-cat-ed;
my heart is like wax;
it melts a-way in-side me.

The roof of my mouth
is as dry as a piece of pot-ter-y;
my tongue sticks to my gum.
You set me in the dust of death.

Yes, wild dogs sur-round me
a gang of e-vil men crowd a-round me;
like li-on
they pin my hands and feet.

I can count all my bones;
my en-e-mies are gloating o-ver me in tri-umph.
They are di-vid-ing up my clothes a-mong them;
they are roll-ing di-ce for my gar-ment.

But you, Lord,
do not re-main far a-way!
You are my source of strength!
Hur-ry and help me, Lord!

De-liv-er me from the sword!
Save my life from the claws of the wild dogs!
Res-cue me from the mouth of the li-on,
and from the horns of the wild ox-en!

You have an-swered me!
will de-clare your name
to my coun-try-man!
In the mid-dle of the as-sem-bly

will praise you!
You loy-al fol-low-ers of the Lord, praise him!
All you descendants of Ja-cob, hon-or him!
All you descendants of Is-ra-el, stand in awe of him!

For he did not de-spise
or de-test the suf-fer-ing of the op-pressed;
he did not ig-nore him;
when he cried out to him, he responded.

You are the rea-son, Lord,
I of-fer praise in the great as-sem-bly;
I will ful-fill my prom-ises
be-fore the Lords loy-al fol-low-ers.

Let the op-pressed eat
and be let them be filled!
Let those who seek his help
praise the Lord for-ev-er!

May you live for-ev-er!
Let all the peo-ple of the earth
ac-knowl-edge the Lord and turn to him!
Let all the na-tions wor-ship you!

For the Lord is king
and rules o-ver the na-tion.
All of the thriving peo-ple of the earth
will join the cel-e-bra-tion and wor-ship;

all those who are descending into the grave
will bow down be-fore him,
including those who can-not pre-serve their lives.
A whole gen-er-a{#E]-tion will serve him;

They will tell the next gen-er-a{#E]-tion a-bout the Lord.
They will tell a-bout his sav-ing deeds;
they will tell a fu-ture gen-er-a{#E]-tion
what he has ac-com-plished.


Readings



A reading from Matthew 24:15-31


“So when you see the abomination of desolation – spoken about by Daniel the prophet – standing in the holy place” (let the reader understand), “then those in Judea must flee to the mountains. The one on the roof must not come down to take anything out of his house, and the one in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing their babies in those days! Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. For then there will be great suffering unlike anything that has happened from the beginning of the world until now, or ever will happen. And if those days had not been cut short, no one would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe him. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. Remember, I have told you ahead of time. So then, if someone says to you, ‘Look, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or ‘Look, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe him. For just like the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so the coming of the Son of Man will be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

“Immediately after the suffering of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man arriving on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




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:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.

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

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.

Amen.

Amen.

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.

Amen.

LEVAS2 (L038) The old rugged cross

Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass



1 On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross,
The emblem of suff’ring and shame;
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain.
Refrain:
So I’ll cherish the cross, the old rugged cross,
Till my trophies at last I lay down;
I will cling to the old rugged cross,
And exchange it some day for a crown.
2 Oh, that old rugged cross so despised by the world,
Has a wondrous attraction for me;
For the dear Lamb of God left His glory above,
To bear it to dark Calvary. [Refrain]
3 In the old rugged cross, stained with blood so divine,
A wondrous beauty I see;
For ’twas on that old cross Jesus suffered and died,
To pardon and sanctify me. [Refrain]
4 To the old rugged cross I will ever be true,
Its shame and reproach gladly bear;
Then He’ll call me some day to my home far away,
Where His glory forever I’ll share. [Refrain]
