Evening Prayer - Monday July 27 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 64


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lis-ten to me, O God, as I of-fer my la-ment!
Pro-tect my life from the en-e-my's ter-ri-fy-ing at-tack.
Hide me from the plots of e-vil men,
from the crowd of e-vil-do-ers.

They sharp-en their tongues like sword;
they aim their ar-row, slan-der-ous charge,
in or-der to shoot down the in-no-cent in se-clud-ed places.
They shoot at him sud-den-ly and are un-a-fraid of re-tal-i-a-tion.

They en-cour-age one an-oth-er to car-ry out their e-vil deeds.
They plan how to hide snares, and boast,
Who will see them?
They de-vise un-just schemes;

They dis-guise a well con-ceived plot.
Man's in-ner thoughts can-not be dis-co-vered.
But God will shoot at them;
sud-den-ly they will be wound-ed by an ar-row.

Their slan-der will bring a-bout their de-mise.
All who see them will shud-der,
and all peo-ple will fear.
They will pro-claim what God has done,

And re-flect on his deeds.
The god-ly will re-joice in the Lord
and take shel-ter in him.
All the mor-al-ly up-right will boast.

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 65


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise a-waits you, O God, in Zi-on.
Vows made to you are ful-filled.
You hear our prayers;
all peo-ple ap-proach you.

Our re-cord of sins o-ver-whelms me,
but you for-give our acts of re-bel-lion.
How bless-ed is the one whom you choose,
and al-low to live in your pal-ace court.

May we be sat-is-fied
with the good things of your house, your ho-ly pal-ace.
You an-swer our prayers
by per-form-ing awe-some acts of de-liv-er-ance,

O God, our sav-ior.
All the ends of the earth trust in you,
As well as those liv-ing a-cross the wide sea.
You cre-at-ed the moun-tains by your pow-er,

And dem-on-strat-ed your strength.
You calm the rag-ing seas and their roar-ing waves,
As well as the com-mo-tion made by the na-tions.
E-ven those in the most re-mote ar-e-as are awe-struck by your acts;

You cause those liv-ing in the east and west to praise you.
You vis-it the earth and give it rain;
You make it rich and fer-tile.
God's streams are full of wat-er;

You pro-vide grain for them,
for you have pre-pared the earth in this way.
You sat-u-rate its fur-rows, and soak-ing its plowed ground.
With rain show-ers you sof-ten its soil,

You make its crops grow.
You crown the year with your good bles-sing,
and you leave a-bun-dance in your wake.
The pas-tures in the wil-der-ness glist-en with moist-ure,

And the hills are clothed with joy.
The mead-ows are clothed with sheep,
and the val-leys are cov-ered with grain.
They shout joy-ful-ly, yes, they sing.

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 Romans 16:1-16


Now I commend to you our sister Phoebe, who is a servant of the church in Cenchrea, so that you may welcome her in the Lord in a way worthy of the saints and provide her with whatever help she may need from you, for she has been a great help to many, including me.

Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus, who risked their own necks for my life. Not only I, but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful to them. Also greet the church in their house. Greet my dear friend Epenetus, who was the first convert to Christ in the province of Asia. Greet Mary, who has worked very hard for you. 

Greet Andronicus and Junia, my compatriots and my fellow prisoners. They are well known to the apostles, and they were in Christ before me. Greet Ampliatus, my dear friend in the Lord. Greet Urbanus, our fellow worker in Christ, and my good friend Stachys. Greet Apelles, who is approved in Christ. Greet those who belong to the household of Aristobulus. Greet Herodion, my compatriot. Greet those in the household of Narcissus who are in the Lord. 

Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa, laborers in the Lord. Greet my dear friend Persis, who has worked hard in the Lord. Greet Rufus, chosen in the Lord, and his mother who was also a mother to me. Greet Asyncritus, Phlegon, Hermes, Patrobas, Hermas, and the brothers and sisters with them. Greet Philologus and Julia, Nereus and his sister, and Olympas, and all the believers who are with them. 

Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Praise


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Glo-ry to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are wor-thy of praise; glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you for the ra-di-ance of your ho-ly Name;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you in the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, seat-ed be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glo-ry to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glo-ry to you.
Glo-ry to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and high-ly ex-alt you for ev-er.


A reading from Matthew 27:24-31


When Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but that instead a riot was starting, he took some water, washed his hands before the crowd and said, “I am innocent of this man’s blood. You take care of it yourselves!” In reply all the people said, “Let his blood be on us and on our children!” Then he released Barabbas for them. 

But after he had Jesus flogged, he handed him over to be crucified. Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the governor’s residence and gathered the whole cohort around him. They stripped him and put a scarlet robe around him, and after braiding a crown of thorns, they put it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand, and kneeling down before him, they mocked him: “Hail, king of the Jews!” They spat on him and took the staff and struck him repeatedly on the head. When they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and put his own clothes back on him. Then they led him away to crucify him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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,

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.

Collect of the Day


Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth: We humbly pray that your gracious providence may give and preserve to our use the harvests of the land and of the seas, and may prosper all who labor to gather them, that we, who are constantly receiving good things from your hand, may always give you thanks; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

A Collect for Peace

Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgements, and all just works: Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give, so that our minds may be fixed on the doing of your will, and that we, being delivered from the fear of all enemies, may live in peace and quietness; through the mercies of Christ Jesus our Savior.

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 (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]
