Evening Prayer - Tuesday August 4, 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 78:40-72


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     All  



How of-ten they re-belled a-gainst him in the wil-der-ness,
and in-sult-ed him in the waste-land!
They a-gain chal-lenged God,
and of-fend-ed the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

They did not re-mem-ber what he had done,
how he de-liv-ered them from the en-e-my,
when he per-formed his awe-some deeds in E-gypt,
and his acts of judg-ment in the re-gion of Zoan.

He turned their riv-ers into blood,
and they could not drink from their streams.
He sent swarms of bit-ing in-sects a-gainst them,
as well as frogs that o-ver-ran their land.

He gave their crops to the grass-hop-pers,
the fruit of their la-bor to the lo-custs.
He de-stroyed their vines with hail,
and their syc-a-more fig trees with driv-ing rain.

He rained hail down on their cat-tle,
and hurled light-ning bolts down on their live-stock.
His rag-ing an-ger lashed out a-gainst them,
He sent fu-ry, rage, and trou-ble

as mes-sen-gers who bring dis-as-ter.
He sent his an-ger in full force;
he did not spare them from death;
he hand-ed their lives o-ver to de-struc-tion.

He struck down all the first-born in E-gypt,
the first fruits of their re-pro-duc-tive pow-er in the tents of Ham.
Yet he brought out his peo-ple like sheep;
he led them through the wil-der-ness like flock.

He guid-ed them safe-ly a-long,
and they were not a-fraid;
but the sea cov-ered their en-e-mies.
He brought them to the bor-der of his ho-ly land,

to this moun-tain-ous land
which his right hand ac-quired.
He drove the na-tions out from be-fore them;
he as-signed them their trib-al al-lot-ments

and al-lowed the tribes of Is-ra-el to set-tle down.
Yet they chal-lenged and de-fied God Most High,
and did not o-bey his com-mand.
They were un-faith-ful to God

and act-ed as treach-er-ous-ly as their an-ces-tors;
they were as un-re-li-a-ble as bro-ken bow.
They made him an-gry with their pa-gan shrines,
and made him jeal-ous with their i-dols.

God heard and was an-gry;
he com-plete-ly re-ject-ed Is-ra-el.
He a-ban-doned the sanc-tu-ar-y at Shi-loh,
the tent where he lived a-mong men.

He al-lowed the sym-bol of his pres-ence to be cap-tured;
he gave the sym-bol of his splen-dor to the en-e-my.
He de-liv-ered his peo-ple o-ver to the sword,
and was an-gry with his cho-sen na-tion.

Fire con-sumed their young men,
and their vir-gins re-mained un-mar-ried.
Their priests fell by the sword,
but their wid-ows did not weep.

But then the Lord a-woke from his sleep;
he was like a war-ri-or in drunk-en rage.
He drove his en-e-mies back;
he made them a per-ma-nent tar-get for in-sults.

He re-ject-ed the tent of Jo-seph;
he did not choose the tribe of Eph-ra-im.
He chose the tribe of Ju-dah,
and Mount Zi-on, which he loves.

He made his sanc-tu-ar-y
as en-dur-ing as the heav-ens a-bove;
as se-cure as the earth,
which he es-tab-lished per-ma-nent-ly.

He chose Da-vid, his serv-ant,
and took him from the sheep fold.
He took him a-way from fol-low-ing the sheep,
and made him the shep-herd

of Ja-cob, his peo-ple,
and of Is-ra-el, his cho-sen na-tion.
Da-vid cared for them
with pure mo-tives; he led them with skill.

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 3:1-11



Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time for prayer, at three o’clock in the afternoon. And a man lame from birth was being carried up, who was placed at the temple gate called “the Beautiful Gate” every day so he could beg for money from those going into the temple courts. When he saw Peter and John about to go into the temple courts, he asked them for money. Peter looked directly at him (as did John) and said, “Look at us!” So the lame man paid attention to them, expecting to receive something from them. 

But Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, stand up and walk!” Then Peter took hold of him by the right hand and raised him up, and at once the man’s feet and ankles were made strong. He jumped up, stood and began walking around, and he entered the temple courts with them, walking and leaping and praising God. All the people saw him walking and praising God, and they recognized him as the man who used to sit and ask for donations at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and they were filled with astonishment and amazement at what had happened to him.

While the man was hanging on to Peter and John, all the people, completely astounded, ran together to them in the covered walkway called Solomon’s Portico.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All  





Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er
are yours by right, Lord our God,
For you cre-at-ed eve-ry-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-at-ed and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fam-i-ly, lan-guage, peo-ple, and na-tion,
a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for ev-er and for ev-er-more.

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 John 1:19-28



Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?” He confessed – he did not deny but confessed – “I am not the Christ!” So they asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not!” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No!” Then they said to him, “Who are you? Tell us so that we can give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”

John said, “I am the voice of one shouting in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.” (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. ) So they asked John, “Why then are you baptizing if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

John answered them, “I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not recognize, who is coming after me. I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandal!” These things happened in Bethany across the Jordan River where John was baptizing.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All  






A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glo-ry of the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness co-vers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But o-ver you the Lord will rise,
and his glo-ry will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will nev-er be shut.
They will call you, The Cit-y of the Lord,
The Zi-on of the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your wall, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will no more be your light by day;
by night you will not need the bright-ness of the moon.
The Lord will be your ev-er-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.

LEVAS2 (L099) On Christ the solid rock

Piano    PARTS




1 My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
2 When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In ev’ry high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]
3 His oath, His covenant and blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]
4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
