Evening Prayer - Monday August 24 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. 


A reading from Acts 9:19-31

For several days he was with the disciples in Damascus, and immediately he began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “This man is the Son of God.” All who heard him were amazed and were saying, “Is this not the man who in Jerusalem was ravaging those who call on this name, and who had come here to bring them as prisoners to the chief priests?” But Saul became more and more capable, and was causing consternation among the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Christ.

Now after some days had passed, the Jews plotted together to kill him, but Saul learned of their plot against him. They were also watching the city gates day and night so that they could kill him. But his disciples took him at night and let him down through an opening in the wall by lowering him in a basket.

When he arrived in Jerusalem, he attempted to associate with the disciples, and they were all afraid of him, because they did not believe that he was a disciple. But Barnabas took Saul, brought him to the apostles, and related to them how he had seen the Lord on the road, that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken out boldly in the name of Jesus. So he was staying with them, associating openly with them in Jerusalem, speaking out boldly in the name of the Lord. He was speaking and debating with the Greek-speaking Jews, but they were trying to kill him. When the brothers found out about this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him away to Tarsus.

Then the church throughout Judea, Galilee, and Samaria experienced peace and thus was strengthened. Living in the fear of the Lord and in the encouragement of the Holy Spirit, the church increased in numbers.

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 6:52-59

Then the Jews who were hostile to Jesus began to argue with one another, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “I tell you the solemn truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood resides in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so the one who consumes me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors ate, but then later died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.”

Jesus said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth. 
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,

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.

Save us from the time of tri-al,

For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,

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.


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.


Prayer for Mission

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.
