Evening Prayer - Monday August 17.2020

 

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 106:19-48


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



They made an im-age of a calf at Ho-reb,
and wor-shiped a met-al i-dol.
They trad-ed their ma-jes-tic God
for the im-age of an ox that eats grass.

They re-ject-ed the God who de-liv-ered them,
the one who per-formed great deeds in E-gypt,
a-maz-ing feats in the land of Ham,
might-y acts by the Red Sea.

He threat-ened to de-stroy them,
but Mo-ses, his cho-sen one,
in-ter-ced-ed with him
and turned back his de-struc-tive an-ger.

They re-ject-ed the fruit-ful land;
they did not be-lieve his prom-ise.
They grum-bled in their tent;
they did not o-bey the Lord.

So he made a sol-emn vow
that he would make them die in the wil-der-ness,
make their de-scend-ants die a-mong the na-tions,
and scat-ter them a-mong for-eign lands.

They wor-shiped Ba-al of Pe-or,
and ate sac-ri-fic-es of-fered to the dead.
They made the Lord an-gry by their ac-tions,
and a plague broke out a-mong them.

Phin-eh-as took a stand and in-ter-vened,
and the plague sub-sid-ed.
This was cred-it-ed to him as a right-eous act
for all gen-er-a-tions to come.

They made him an-gry by the wat-ers of Mer-i-bah,
and Mo-ses suf-fered be-cause of them,
for they a-roused his tem-per,
and so he spoke rash-ly.

They did not de-stroy the na-tions,
as the Lord had com-mand-ed them to do.
They mixed in with the na-tions
and learned their pa-gan ways.

They wor-shiped their i-dols,
which be-came a snare to them.
They sac-ri-ficed their sons and daugh-ters to de-mons.
They shed in-no-cent blood,

the blood of their sons and daugh-ters,
whom they sac-ri-ficed to the i-dols of Ca-naan.
The land was pol-lut-ed by blood-shed.
They were de-filed by their deeds,

They were un-faith-ful in their ac-tions.
So the Lord was an-gry with his peo-ple
and de-spised the peo-ple who be-long to him.
He hand-ed them o-ver to the na-tions,

and those who hat-ed them ruled o-ver them.
Their en-e-mies op-pressed them;
they were sub-ject to their au-thor-i-ty.
Man-y times he de-liv-ered them,

but they had a re-bel-lious at-ti-tude,
and de-grad-ed them-selves by their sin.
Yet he took no-tice of their dis-tress,
when he heard their cry for help.

He re-mem-bered his cov-e-nant with them,
and re-lent-ed be-cause of his great loy-al love.
He caused all their con-quer-ors to have pit-y on them.
De-liv-er us, O Lord, our God!

Gath-er us from a-mong the na-tions!
Then we will give you thanks,
sing-iing praise to your ho-ly name,
and boast-ing a-bout your praise-wor-thy deeds.

The Lord God of Is-ra-el de-serves praise,
in the fu-ture and for-ev-er-more.
Let all the peo-ple say,
We a-gree! Praise the Lord!

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 7:44-8:1a


Our ancestors had the tabernacle of testimony in the wilderness, just as God who spoke to Moses ordered him to make it according to the design he had seen. Our ancestors received possession of it and brought it in with Joshua when they dispossessed the nations that God drove out before our ancestors, until the time of David. He found favor with God and asked that he could find a dwelling place for the house of Jacob. But Solomon built a house for him. Yet the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands, as the prophet says,

Heaven is my throne,

and earth is the footstool for my feet.

What kind of house will you build for me, says the Lord,

or what is my resting place?

Did my hand not make all these things?

“You stubborn people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are always resisting the Holy Spirit, like your ancestors did! Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute? They killed those who foretold long ago the coming of the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become! You received the law by decrees given by angels, but you did not obey it.”

When they heard these things, they became furious and ground their teeth at him. But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked intently toward heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God. “Look!” he said. “I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!” But they covered their ears, shouting out with a loud voice, and rushed at him with one intent. When they had driven him out of the city, they began to stone him, and the witnesses laid their cloaks at the feet of a young man named Saul. They continued to stone Stephen while he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then he fell to his knees and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” When he had said this, he died. And Saul agreed completely with killing him.

Now on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were forced to scatter throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria.

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 John 5:19-29


So Jesus answered them, “I tell you the solemn truth, the Son can do nothing on his own initiative, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. For the Father loves the Son and shows him everything he does, and will show him greater deeds than these, so that you will be amazed. For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. Furthermore, the Father does not judge anyone, but has assigned all judgment to the Son, so that all people will honor the Son just as they honor the Father. The one who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

“I tell you the solemn truth, the one who hears my message and believes the one who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned, but has crossed over from death to life. I tell you the solemn truth, a time is coming – and is now here – when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For just as the Father has life in himself, thus he has granted the Son to have life in himself, and he has granted the Son authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man.

“Do not be amazed at this, because a time is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and will come out – the ones who have done what is good to the resurrection resulting in life, and the ones who have done what is evil to the resurrection resulting in condemnation.

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,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

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 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 judgments, 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.
