Evening Prayer - Monday October 5 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 106:19-48


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



They made an im-age of a calf at Ho-reb,
and wor-shiped met-al i-dol.
They trad-ed their ma-jes-tic God
for the im-age of an ox that eats grass.

They re-ject-ed the God who de-liv-ered them,
the one who per-formed great deeds in E-gypt,
a-maz-ing feats in the land of Ham,
might-y acts by the Red Sea.

He threat-ened to de-stroy them,
but Mo-ses, his cho-sen one,
in-ter-ced-ed with him
and turned back his de-struc-tive an-ger.

They re-ject-ed the fruit-ful land;
they did not be-lieve his prom-ise.
They grum-bled in their tent;
they did not o-bey the Lord.

So he made a sol-emn vow
that he would make them die in the wil-der-ness,
make their de-scend-ants die a-mong the na-tions,
and scat-ter them a-mong for-eign lands.

They wor-shiped Ba-al of Pe-or,
and ate sac-ri-fic-es of-fered to the dead.
They made the Lord an-gry by their ac-tions,
and a plague broke out a-mong them.

Phin-eh-as took a stand and in-ter-vened,
and the plague sub-sid-ed.
This was cred-it-ed to him as a right-eous act
for all gen-er-a-tions to come.

They made him an-gry by the wat-ers of Mer-i-bah,
and Mo-ses suf-fered be-cause of them,
for they a-roused his tem-per,
and so he spoke rash-ly.

They did not de-stroy the na-tions,
as the Lord had com-mand-ed them to do.
They mixed in with the na-tions
and learned their pa-gan ways.

They wor-shiped their i-dols,
which be-came snare to them.
They sac-ri-ficed their sons and daugh-ters to de-mons.
They shed in-no-cent blood,

the blood of their sons and daugh-ters,
whom they sac-ri-ficed to the i-dols of Ca-naan.
The land was pol-lut-ed by blood-shed.
They were de-filed by their deeds,

They were un-faith-ful in their ac-tions.
So the Lord was an-gry with his peo-ple
and de-spised the peo-ple who be-long to him.
He hand-ed them o-ver to the na-tions,

and those who hat-ed them ruled o-ver them.
Their en-e-mies op-pressed them;
they were sub-ject to their au-thor-i-ty.
Man-y times he de-liv-ered them,

but they had a re-bel-lious at-ti-tude,
and de-grad-ed them-selves by their sin.
Yet he took no-tice of their dis-tress,
when he heard their cry for help.

He re-mem-bered his cov-e-nant with them,
and re-lent-ed be-cause of his great loy-al love.
He caused all their con-quer-ors to have pit-on them.
De-liv-er us, Lord, our God!

Gath-er us from a-mong the na-tions!
Then we will give you thanks,
sing-iing praise to your ho-ly name,
and boast-ing a-bout your praise-wor-thy deeds.

The Lord God of Is-ra-el de-serves praise,
in the fu-ture and for-ev-er-more.
Let all the peo-ple say,
We a-gree! Praise the Lord!

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 22:30-23:11


The next day, because the commanding officer wanted to know the true reason Paul was being accused by the Jews, he released him and ordered the chief priests and the whole council to assemble. He then brought Paul down and had him stand before them.

Paul looked directly at the council and said, “Brothers, I have lived my life with a clear conscience before God to this day.” At that the high priest Ananias ordered those standing near Paul to strike him on the mouth. Then Paul said to him, “God is going to strike you, you whitewashed wall! Do you sit there judging me according to the law, and in violation of the law you order me to be struck?” Those standing near him said, “Do you dare insult God’s high priest?” Paul replied, “I did not realize, brothers, that he was the high priest, for it is written, ‘You must not speak evil about a ruler of your people.’”

Then when Paul noticed that part of them were Sadducees and the others Pharisees, he shouted out in the council, “Brothers, I am a Pharisee, a son of Pharisees. I am on trial concerning the hope of the resurrection of the dead!” When he said this, an argument began between the Pharisees and the Sadducees, and the assembly was divided. (For the Sadducees say there is no resurrection, or angel, or spirit, but the Pharisees acknowledge them all.) There was a great commotion, and some experts in the law from the party of the Pharisees stood up and protested strongly, “We find nothing wrong with this man. What if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?” When the argument became so great the commanding officer feared that they would tear Paul to pieces, he ordered the detachment to go down, take him away from them by force, and bring him into the barracks.

The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Have courage, for just as you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.”

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 Luke 6:39-49


He also told them a parable: “Someone who is blind cannot lead another who is blind, can he? Won’t they both fall into a pit? A disciple is not greater than his teacher, but everyone when fully trained will be like his teacher. Why do you see the speck in your brother’s eye, but fail to see the beam of wood in your own? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck from your eye,’ while you yourself don’t see the beam in your own? You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

“For no good tree bears bad fruit, nor again does a bad tree bear good fruit, for each tree is known by its own fruit. For figs are not gathered from thorns, nor are grapes picked from brambles. The good person out of the good treasury of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasury produces evil, for his mouth speaks from what fills his heart.

“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and don’t do what I tell you?

“Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and puts them into practice—I will show you what he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on bedrock. When a flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it because it had been well built. But the person who hears and does not put my words into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against that house, it collapsed immediately and was utterly destroyed!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
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 for-give-ness of sins,
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,

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, forever and ever.

A Collect for Peace

Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgments, 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.

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.

LEVAS2 - Hymn 189 Great Is Thy Faithfulness


Piano    Parts    Soprano    Alto    Tenor    Bass



1 Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with thee;
Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not,
As thou hast been thou forever wilt be.
Refrain:
Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed thy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me!
2 Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. [Refrain]
3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
[Refrain]
