Evening Prayer - Monday October 12 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.


Readings



A reading from Acts 26:1-23


So Agrippa said to Paul, “You have permission to speak for yourself.” Then Paul held out his hand and began his defense:

“Regarding all the things I have been accused of by the Jews, King Agrippa, I consider myself fortunate that I am about to make my defense before you today, because you are especially familiar with all the customs and controversial issues of the Jews. Therefore I ask you to listen to me patiently. Now all the Jews know the way I lived from my youth, spending my life from the beginning among my own people and in Jerusalem. They know because they have known me from time past, if they are willing to testify, that according to the strictest party of our religion, I lived as a Pharisee. And now I stand here on trial because of my hope in the promise made by God to our ancestors, a promise that our twelve tribes hope to attain as they earnestly serve God night and day. Concerning this hope the Jews are accusing me, Your Majesty! Why do you people think it is unbelievable that God raises the dead? Of course, I myself was convinced that it was necessary to do many things hostile to the name of Jesus the Nazarene. And that is what I did in Jerusalem: Not only did I lock up many of the saints in prisons by the authority I received from the chief priests, but I also cast my vote against them when they were sentenced to death. I punished them often in all the synagogues and tried to force them to blaspheme. Because I was so furiously enraged at them, I went to persecute them even in foreign cities.

“While doing this very thing, as I was going to Damascus with authority and complete power from the chief priests, about noon along the road, Your Majesty, I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining everywhere around me and those traveling with me. When we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? You are hurting yourself by kicking against the goads.’ So I said, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And the Lord replied, ‘I am Jesus whom you are persecuting. But get up and stand on your feet, for I have appeared to you for this reason, to designate you in advance as a servant and witness to the things you have seen and to the things in which I will appear to you. I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you to open their eyes so that they turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

“Therefore, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the heavenly vision, but I declared to those in Damascus first, and then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds consistent with repentance. For this reason the Jews, after they seized me while I was in the temple courts, were trying to kill me. I have experienced help from God to this day, and so I stand testifying to both small and great, saying nothing except what the prophets and Moses said was going to happen: that the Christ was to suffer and be the first to rise from the dead, to proclaim light both to our people and to the Gentiles.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

A reading from Luke 8:26-39


So they sailed over to the region of the Gerasenes, which is opposite Galilee. As Jesus stepped ashore, a certain man from the town met him who was possessed by demons. For a long time this man had worn no clothes and had not lived in a house, but among the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried out, fell down before him, and shouted with a loud voice, “Leave me alone, Jesus, Son of the Most High God! I beg you, do not torment me!” For Jesus had started commanding the evil spirit to come out of the man. 

(For it had seized him many times, so he would be bound with chains and shackles and kept under guard. But he would break the restraints and be driven by the demon into deserted places.) Jesus then asked him, “What is your name?” He said, “Legion,” because many demons had entered him. And they began to beg him not to order them to depart into the abyss. 

Now a large herd of pigs was feeding there on the hillside, and the demonic spirits begged Jesus to let them go into them. He gave them permission. So the demons came out of the man and went into the pigs, and the herd of pigs rushed down the steep slope into the lake and drowned. 

When the herdsmen saw what had happened, they ran off and spread the news in the town and countryside. So the people went out to see what had happened, and they came to Jesus. They found the man from whom the demons had gone out, sitting at Jesus’ feet, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. Those who had seen it told them how the man who had been demon-possessed had been healed. Then all the people of the Gerasenes and the surrounding region asked Jesus to leave them alone, for they were seized with great fear. 

So he got into the boat and left. The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with him, but Jesus sent him away, saying, “Return to your home, and declare what God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole town what Jesus had done for him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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.

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 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.

Amen.

LEVAS2 (L165)   Higher Ground

Piano     PARTS



1 I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
Refrain:
Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith, on heaven’s table land;
A higher plane than I have found,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
2 My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim is higher ground. [Refrain]
3 I want to live above the world,
Though satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught a joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground. [Refrain]
4 I want to scale the utmost height,
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on the higher ground.” [Refrain]
