The Lord Al-might-y grant us a peaceful night
and a per-fect end. A-men.
Our help is in/the Name of/the Lord;
The mak-er of heaven and earth.

Al-might-y God, our heaven-ly Fath-er:
We have sinned a-gainst you,
through our own fault,
in thought, and word, and deed,

and in what we have left un-done.
For the sake of your Son
our Lord Je-sus Christ,
for-give us all our of-fens-es;

and grant that we may serve you
in _ new-ness of life,
to the glory] of your Name. A-men.
May the Al-might-y God grant us

for-give-ness of all our sins,
and the grace and comfort of/the Ho-ly Spi-rit. A-men.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Psalm 31


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




In you, O Lord, I have taken shel-ter!
Never let me be hu-mili-at-ed!
Vindi-cate me by res-cu-ing me!
List-en to me! Quick-ly de-liver me!

Be my pro-tec-tor and ref-uge,
a strong-hold where I can be safe!
For you are my high ridge and my strong-hold;
for the sake of your own repu-ta-tion

You lead me and guide me.
You will free me from/the net they hid for me,
for you are my place of ref-uge.
Into your hand I en-trust my life;

you will res-cue me,
O Lord, _ the faithful God.
I hate those who serve worth-less i-dols,
but _ I trust in/the Lord.

I will be happy and re-joice in your faithful-ness,
be-cause you no-tice my pain
and you are a-ware of how dis-tressed I am.
You do not de-liver me over to/the power of/the ene-my;

you en-able me to stand in a wide o-pen place.
Have mer-cy on me, Lord, for I am in dis-tress!
My eyes grow dim from suffer-ing.
I have lost all my strength.

For my life nears its end in pain;
my years draw to a close as I groan.
My strength fails me be-cause of my sin,
and my bones be-come brit-tle.

Be-cause of all my ene-m1es, people dis-dain me;
my neigh-bors are ap-palled by my suffer-ing
those who know me are horri-fied by my con-di-tion;
those who see me in/the street run a-way from me.

I am for-got-ten,
like a dead man no one thinks a-bout;
I am re-garded as worth-less,
I am like a bro-ken jar.

For I hear what so many are say-ing,
the terri-fy-ing news that comes from every di-rec-tion.
When they plot to-gether a-gainst me,
they figure out how they can take my life.

But I trust in you, O Lord!
I de-clare, You are my God!
You de-ter-mine my des-ti-ny!
Res-cue me from/the power of my ene-mies

and from those who chase me.
Smile on your loyal serv-ant!
De-liver me be-cause of your faithful-ness!
O Lord, do not let me be hu-mili-at-ed,

for I call out to you, my God!
May evil men be hu-mili-at-ed!
May they go wail-ing to/the grave!
May ly-ing lips be si-lenced;

lips that speak de-fiant-ly a-gainst the inno-cent
with arro-gance and con-tempt!
How great is your fa-vor,
which you store up for your peo-ple!

In plain sight of every-one
you be-stow it on those who take shelter in you.
You hide them with you,
where they are safe from/the at-tacks of men;

you con-ceal them in a shel-ter,
where they are safe from slander-ous at-tacks.
The Lord de-serves praise
for he demon-strat-ed his a-mazing faithful-ness to me

when I was be-sieged by ene-mies.
I jumped to con-clu-sions and said,
I am cut off from your pres-ence!
But you heard my plea for mer-cy

when I cried out to you for help.
Love the Lord, all you faithful follow-ers of his!
The Lord pro-tects those who have in-tegri-ty,
but he pays back in full the one who acts arro-gant-ly.

Be strong and con-fi-dent,
all you who wait on/the Lord!
In you, O Lord, I have taken shel-ter!
Never let me be hu-mili-at-ed!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from Matthew 11:2-15


Now when John heard in prison about the deeds Christ had done, he sent his disciples to ask a question: “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?” Jesus answered them, “Go tell John what you hear and see: The blind see, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have good news proclaimed to them —and blessed is anyone who takes no offense at me!”

While they were going away, Jesus began to speak to the crowd about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? What did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft clothing? Look, those who wear soft clothing are in the palaces of kings! What did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet! This is the one about whom it is written:

“‘Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,

who will prepare your way before you.’

“I tell you the truth, among those born of women, no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he is! From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and forceful people lay hold of it. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John appeared. And if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah, who is to come. The one who has ears had better listen!

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with _ you.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done on earth
as it is in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.

For-give us our sins
as we _ for-give those
who sin a-gainst us.
Save us from/the time of tri-al,

De-liver us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er,
and the glory are yours,
now and for-ever A-men.

Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ.

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.

Prayer for Mission

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.

Amen.

Into your hands, O Lord, I com-mend my spi-rit;
For you have re-deemed me, O Lord, O God of truth.
Keep us, O Lord, as the apple of your eye;
Hide us under the shadow of your wings.

Lord, have mer-cy up-on us.
Christ, have mer-cy up-on us.
Lord, hear our prayer;
And let our cry come to you.

Guide us as we wak, O Lord,
and guard us as we sleep;
that a-wake we may watch with Christ,
and a-sleep we may rest in peace.

Lord, you now have set your serv-ant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Sav-ior,
whom you have pre-pared for all the world to see:

A Light to en-lighten the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
The al-mighty and merci-ful Lord,
Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit, bless and keep us.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.

Guide us as we wak, O Lord,
and guard us as we sleep;
that a-wake we may watch with Christ,
and a-sleep we may rest in peace.
