Evening Prayer - Friday September 25 2020

 Confession


Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God, have mercy on us, 
forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ,
strengthen us in all goodness,
and by the power of the Holy Spirit,
keep us in eternal life.
Amen.


VB Hymnal (VB0002) - Savior Breathe An Evening Blessing

Piano    PARTS    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass     PDF


Savior, breathe an evening blessing,

Ere repose our spirits seal;
Sin and want we come confessing,
You can save and You can heal.

Though destruction walks around us,
Though the arrows near us fly,
Angel guards from You surround us;
We are safe if You are nigh.

Though the night be dark and dreary
Darkness cannot hide from You;
You are watching, never weary,
quick to see Your people through.

Should swift death this night o'ertake us,
And our beds become our tombs,
May the morn in heav'n awake us,
Clad in light and deathless blooms.


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 91


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



As for you, the one who lives in the shel-ter of the Most High,
and re-sides in the pro-tec-tive shad-ow of the Sov-ereign One
I say this a-bout the Lord,
my shel-ter and my strong-hold, my God in whom trust

he will cer-tain-ly res-cue you from the snare of the hun-ter
and from the de-struc-tive plague.
He will shel-ter you with his wings;
you will find safe-ty un-der his wings.

His faith-ful-ness is like a shield or a pro-tec-tive wall.
You need not fear the ter-rors of the night,
the ar-row that flies by day,
the plague that stalks in the dark-ness,

Nor the dis-ease that rav-a-ges at noon.
Though a thou-sand may fall be-side you,
and a mul-ti-tude on your right side, it will not reach you.
Cer-tain-ly you will see it with your ver-own eyes

you will see the wick-ed paid back.
For you have tak-en ref-uge in the Lord,
The Lord is my shel-ter, the Most High.
No harm will o-ver-take you;

no ill-ness will come near your home.
For he will or-der his an-gels to pro-tect you in all you do.
They will lift you up in their hands,
so you will not slip and fall on stone.

You will sub-due a li-on and snake;
you will tram-ple un-der-foot a young li-on and ser-pent.
The Lord says, Be-cause he is de-vot-ed to me,
I will de-liv-er him; will pro-tect him

Be-cause he is loy-al to me.
When he calls out to me, will an-swer him.
I will be with him when he is in trou-ble;
I will res-cue him and bring him hon-or.

I will sat-is-fy him with long life,
and will let him see my sal-va-tion.
I will de-liv-er him; I will pro-tect him
Be-cause he is loy-al to me.

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 92


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



It is fit-ting to thank the Lord,
and to sing prais-es to your name, Most High!
It is fit-ting to pro-claim your loy-al love in the morn-ing,
and your faith-ful-ness dur-ing the night,

to the ac-com-pa-ni-ment of a ten-stringed in-stru-ment and lyre,
to the ac-com-pa-ni-ment of the med-i-ta-tive tone of the harp.
For you, O Lord, have made me hap-py by your work.
I will sing for joy be-cause of what you have done.

How great are your works, Lord!
Your plans are ver-in-tri-cate!
The spi-rit-ual-ly in-sen-si-tive do not rec-og-nize this;
the fool does not un-der-stand this.

When the wick-ed sprout up like grass,
and all the e-vil-do-ers glis-ten,
it is so that they may be an-ni-hi-lat-ed.
But you, O Lord, reign for-ev-er!

In-deed, look at your en-e-mies, Lord!
In-deed, look at how your en-e-mies per-ish!
All the e-vil-do-ers are scat-tered!
You ex-alt my horn like that of wild ox.

I am cov-ered with fresh oil.
I gloat in tri-umph o-ver those who tried to am-bush me;
I hear the de-feat-ed cries
of the e-vil foes who at-tacked me.

The god-ly grow like palm tree;
they grow high like a ce-dar in Leb-a-non.
Plant-ed in the Lord's house,
they grow in the courts of our God.

They bear fruit e-ven when they are old;
they are filled with vi-tal-i-ty and have man-leaves.
So they pro-claim that the Lord,
my pro-tec-tor, is just and nev-er un-fair.

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 19:21-41


Now after all these things had taken place, Paul resolved to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. He said, “After I have been there, I must also see Rome.” So after sending two of his assistants, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, he himself stayed on for a while in the province of Asia.

At that time a great disturbance took place concerning the Way. For a man named Demetrius, a silversmith who made silver shrines of Artemis, brought a great deal of business to the craftsmen. He gathered these together, along with the workmen in similar trades, and said, “Men, you know that our prosperity comes from this business. And you see and hear that this Paul has persuaded and turned away a large crowd, not only in Ephesus but in practically all of the province of Asia, by saying that gods made by hands are not gods at all. There is danger not only that this business of ours will come into disrepute, but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis will be regarded as nothing, and she whom all the province of Asia and the world worship will suffer the loss of her greatness.”

When they heard this they became enraged and began to shout, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” The city was filled with the uproar, and the crowd rushed to the theater together, dragging with them Gaius and Aristarchus, the Macedonians who were Paul’s traveling companions. 

But when Paul wanted to enter the public assembly, the disciples would not let him. Even some of the provincial authorities who were his friends sent a message to him, urging him not to venture into the theater. So then some were shouting one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had met together. Some of the crowd concluded it was about Alexander because the Jews had pushed him to the front. 

Alexander, gesturing with his hand, was wanting to make a defense before the public assembly. But when they recognized that he was a Jew, they all shouted in unison, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” for about two hours. 

After the city secretary quieted the crowd, he said, “Men of Ephesus, what person is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is the keeper of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image that fell from heaven? So because these facts are indisputable, you must keep quiet and not do anything reckless. For you have brought these men here who are neither temple robbers nor blasphemers of our goddess. If then Demetrius and the craftsmen who are with him have a complaint against someone, the courts are open and there are proconsuls; let them bring charges against one another there. But if you want anything in addition, it will have to be settled in a legal assembly. For we are in danger of being charged with rioting today, since there is no cause we can give to explain this disorderly gathering.” After he had said this, he dismissed the assembly.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





Bless-ed be the Lord, the God of Is-ra-el;
he has come to his peo-ple and set them free.
He has raised up for us a might-sav-ior,
born of the house of his serv-ant Da-vid.

Through his ho-ly proph-ets he prom-ised of old,
that he would save us from our en-e-mies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He prom-ised to show mer-cy to our fath-ers

and to re-mem-ber his ho-ly cov-e-nant.
This was the oath he swore to our fath-er A-bra-ham,
to set us free from the hands of our en-e-mies,
Free to wor-ship him with-out fear,

ho-ly and right-eous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of the Most High,

for you will go be-fore the Lord to pre-pare his way,
To give his peo-ple knowl-edge of sal-va-tion
by the for-give-ness of their sins.
In the ten-der com-pas-sion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those who dwell in dark-ness
and the shad-ow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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 Luke 4:31-37


So he went down to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and on the Sabbath he began to teach the people. They were amazed at his teaching, because he spoke with authority.

Now in the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice, “Ha! Leave us alone, Jesus the Nazarene! Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are – the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him: “Silence! Come out of him!” Then, after the demon threw the man down in their midst, he came out of him without hurting him. They were all amazed and began to say to one another, “What’s happening here? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!” So the news about him spread into all areas of the region.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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:

Prayers



Hymnal 1982 (S105) The Nicene Creed



We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of his Father.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried;

On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory,
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, and giver of Life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Let your way be known up-on earth;

And sus-tain us by your Ho-ly Spi-rit.
Show us your mer-cy, Lord;

Amen.

A Collect for Fridays

Lord Jesus Christ, by your death you took away the sting of death: Grant to us your servants so to follow in faith where you have led the way, that we may at length fall asleep peacefully in you and wake up in your likeness; for your tender mercies' sake.

Amen.
