Evening Prayer - Monday July 6 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 4


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All    




When I call out, an-swer me,
O God who vin-di-cates me!
Though I am hemmed in,
you will lead me into wide, o-pen place.

Have mer-cy on me
and re-spond to my prayer!
You men, how long will you try
to turn my hon-or into shame?

How long will you love what is worth-less
and search for what is de-cep-tive?
Real-ize that the Lord
shows the god-ly spe-cial fa-vor

The Lord re-sponds when I cry out to him.
Trem-ble with fear and do not sin!
Med-i-tate as you lie in bed,
and re-pent of your ways!

Of-fer the pre-scribed sac-ri-fic-es
and al-ways trust in the Lord!
Man-y say, Who can show us any-thing good?
Smile up-on us, Lord!

You make me hap-pier
than those who have a-bun-dant grain and wine.
I will lie down and sleep peace-ful-ly,
for you, Lord, make me safe and se-cure.

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 7


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All    




O Lord my God, in you I have tak-en shel-ter.
De-liv-er me from all who chase me! Res-cue me!
Oth-er-wise they will rip me to shreds like li-on;
they will tear me to bits

and no one will be a-ble to res-cue me.
O Lord my God, if I have done what they say,
or if I am guilt-y of un-just ac-tion,
or have wronged my al-ly,

or helped his law-less en-e-my,
may an en-e-my re-lent-less-ly chase me and catch me;
may he tram-ple me to death
and leave me ly-ing dis-hon-ored in the dust.

Stand up an-gri-ly, Lord!
Rise up with rag-ing fu-ry a-gainst my en-e-my!
Wake up for my sake
and ex-e-cute the judg-ment you have de-creed for them!

The coun-tries are as-sem-bled all a-round you;
take once more your right-ful place o-ver them!
The Lord judg-es the na-tions.
Vin-di-cate me, Lord, be-cause am in-no-cent,

be-cause I am blame-less, O Ex-alt-ed One!
May the e-vil deeds of the wick-ed come to an end!
But make the in-no-cent se-cure, O right-eous God,
you who ex-am-ine in-ner thoughts and mo-tives!

The Ex-alt-ed God is my shield,
the one who de-liv-ers the mor-al-ly up-right.
God is just judge;
he is an-gry through-out the day.

If a per-son does not re-pent,
God will strike with his sword.
He has pre-pared to shoot his bow.
He has pre-pared dead-ly weap-ons to use a-gainst him;

He gets read-y to shoot flam-ing ar-rows.
See the one who is filled with wick-ed-ness,
who con-ceives de-struc-tive plans,
and gives birth to harm-ful lies.

He digs pit
and then falls into the hole he has made.
He be-comes the vic-tim
of his own de-struc-tive plans

and the vio-lence he in-tend-ed for oth-ers
then falls on his own head.
I will thank the Lord for his jus-tice;
I will sing prais-es to the Lord Most High!

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 Matthew 23:1-12


Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, “The experts in the law and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat. Therefore pay attention to what they tell you and do it. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they teach. They tie up heavy loads, hard to carry, and put them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing even to lift a finger to move them. They do all their deeds to be seen by people, for they make their phylacteries wide and their tassels long. They love the place of honor at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues and elaborate greetings in the marketplaces, and to have people call them ‘Rabbi. ’But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher and you are all brothers. And call no one your ‘father’ on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. Nor are you to be called ‘teacher,’ for you have one teacher, the Christ. The greatest among you will be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - 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.

Monday 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.

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,

Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.
Clothe your min-is-ters with right-eous-ness;
Let your peo-ple sing with joy.

For on-ly in you can we live in safe-ty.
Lord, keep this na-tion un-der your care;
And guide us in the way of jus-tice and truth.

Let your way be known up-on earth;
Your sav-ing health a-mong all na-tions.
Let not the need-y, O Lord, be for-got-ten;

Cre-ate in us clean hearts, God;
And sus-tain us by your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, Lord;
And grant us your sal-va-tion.

Amen.

A Collect for Fridays

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.

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

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]
