Evening Prayer - Tuesday September 15 2020

 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 68


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



God springs into ac-tion!
His en-e-mies scat-ter;
his ad-ver-sar-ies run from him.
As smoke is driv-en a-way by the wind,

So you drive them a-way.
As wax melts be-fore fire,
so the wick-ed are de-stroyed be-fore God.
But the god-ly are hap-py;

They re-joice be-fore God
and are o-ver-come with joy.
Sing to God! Sing prais-es to his name!
Ex-alt the one who rides on the clouds!

For the Lord is his name!
Re-joice be-fore the Lord!
He is a fath-er to the fath-er-less
and an ad-vo-cate for wid-ows.

God rules from his ho-ly dwell-ing place.
God set-tles those who have been de-sert-ed in their own home;
he frees pris-on-ers and grants them pros-per-i-ty.
But sin-ful re-bels live in the de-sert.

O God, when you lead your peo-ple into bat-tle,
when you march through the waste-land,
the earth shakes, yes,
the heav-ens pour down rain be-fore God,

The God of Si-nai,
be-fore God, the God of Is-ra-el.
O God, you cause a-bun-dant show-ers
to fall on your cho-sen peo-ple.

When they are tired, you sus-tain them,
for you live a-mong them.
You sus-tain the op-pressed
with your good bles-sing, God.

The Lord speaks; many, many women spread the good news.
Kings lead-ing ar-mies run a-way!
They run a-way!
The love-ly la-dy of the house di-vides up the spoils.

When you lie down a-mong the sheep-fold,
the wings of the dove are cov-ered with sil-ver
and with glit-ter-ing gold.
When the Sove-reign One scat-ters kings,

Let it snow on Zal-mon!
The moun-tain of Ba-shan is a tow-er-ing moun-tain;
the moun-tain of Ba-shan is a moun-tain with man-peaks.
Why do you look with en-vy, O moun-tains with man-peaks,

At the moun-tain where God has de-cid-ed to live?
In-deed the Lord will live there per-ma-nent-ly!
God has count-less char-i-ots;
they num-ber in the thou-sands.

The Lord comes from Si-nai in ho-ly splen-dor.
You as-cend on high, you have tak-en many cap-tives.
You re-ceive trib-ute from men,
in-clud-ing e-ven sin-ful re-bel.

In-deed the Lord God lives there!
The Lord de-serves our praise!
Day af-ter day he car-ries our bur-dens,
the God who de-liv-ers us.

Our God is a God who de-liv-ers;
the Lord, the sove-reign Lord, can res-cue from death.
In-deed God strikes the heads of his en-e-mies,
the hair-y fore-heads of those who per-sist in re-bel-lion.

The Lord says, I will re-trieve them from Ba-shan,
I will bring them back from the depths of the sea,
so that your feet may stomp in their blood,
and your dogs may eat their por-tion of the en-e-mies'' corps-es.

They see your pro-ces-sions, God
the pro-ces-sions of my God, my king,
who march-es a-long in ho-ly splen-dor.
Sing-ers walk in front; mu-si-cians fol-low

Play-ing their stringed in-stru-ments,
in the midst of young women play-ing tam-bou-rines.
In your large as-sem-blies praise God,
Praise the Lord, in the as-sem-blies of Is-ra-el!

There is lit-tle Ben-ja-min, their rul-er,
and the princ-es of Ju-dah in their robes,
a-long with the princ-es of Zeb-ul-un
and the princ-es of Naph-ta-li.

God has de-creed that you will be pow-er-ful.
O God, you who have act-ed on our be-half,
dem-on-strate your pow-er.
Be-cause of your tem-ple in Je-ru-sa-lem,

Kings bring trib-ute to you.
Sound your bat-tle cry a-gainst the wild beast of the reed,
and the na-tions that as-sem-ble
like a herd of calves led by bulls!

They hum-ble them-selves
and of-fer gold and sil-ver as trib-ute.
God scat-ters the na-tions
that like to do bat-tle.

They come with red cloth from E-gypt,
E-thi-o-pi-a vol-un-tar-i-ly of-fers trib-ute to God.
O king-doms of the earth, sing to God!
Sing prais-es to the Lord,

To the one who rides through the sky from an-cient times!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

And the pow-er he re-veals in the sky!
You are awe-in-spir-ing, God,
as you e-merge from your ho-ly tem-ple!
It is the God of Is-ra-el who gives the peo-ple pow-er and strength.

God de-serves praise!
Look! He thun-ders loud-ly.
Ac-knowl-edge God's pow-er,
his sove-reign-ty o-ver Is-ra-el,

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 16:6-15


They went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been prevented by the Holy Spirit from speaking the message in the province of Asia. When they came to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them to do this, so they passed through Mysia and went down to Troas. A vision appeared to Paul during the night: A Macedonian man was standing there urging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us!” After Paul saw the vision, we attempted immediately to go over to Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the good news to them.

We put out to sea from Troas and sailed a straight course to Samothrace, the next day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is a leading city of that district of Macedonia, a Roman colony. We stayed in this city for some days. On the Sabbath day we went outside the city gate to the side of the river, where we thought there would be a place of prayer, and we sat down and began to speak to the women who had assembled there. A woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth from the city of Thyatira, a God-fearing woman, listened to us. The Lord opened her heart to respond to what Paul was saying. After she and her household were baptized, she urged us, “If you consider me to be a believer in the Lord, come and stay in my house.” And she persuaded us.

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 12:9-19


Now a large crowd of Judeans learned that Jesus was there, and so they came not only because of him but also to see Lazarus whom he had raised from the dead. So the chief priests planned to kill Lazarus too, for on account of him many of the Jewish people from Jerusalem were going away and believing in Jesus.

The next day the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him. They began to shout, “Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the king of Israel!” Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written, “Do not be afraid, people of Zion; look, your king is coming, seated on a donkeys colt!” (His disciples did not understand these things when they first happened, but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about him and that these things had happened to him.)

So the crowd who had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead were continuing to testify about it. Because they had heard that Jesus had performed this miraculous sign, the crowd went out to meet him. Thus the Pharisees said to one another, “You see that you can do nothing. Look, the world has run off after him!”

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.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.

LEVAS II - Hymn 12 We’re marching to Zion

Piano    Parts   


1 Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne,
And thus surround the throne.
Refrain:
We’re marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We’re marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.
2 Let those refuse to sing
Who never knew our God;
But children of the heav’nly King,
But children of the heav’nly King,
May speak their joys abroad,
May speak their joys abroad. (refrain)
3 The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Or walk the golden streets,
Or walk the golden streets. (refrain)
4 Then let our songs abound,
And ev’ry tear be dry;
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground,
We’re marching thro’ Immanuel’s ground,
To fairer worlds on high,
To fairer worlds on high. (refrain)
