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 25


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord, I come be-fore you in prayer.
My God, I trust in you.
Please don't let me be hu-mili-at-ed;
Don't let my ene-mies triumphant-ly re-joice over me!

Certain-ly none who re-ly on you will be hu-mili-at-ed.
Those who deal in treacher-y will be thwarted and a-shamed.
Make me under-stand your ways,
O Lord! Teach me your paths!

Guide me into your truth and teach me.
For you are the God who de-livers me;
on you I re-ly all day long.
Re-member your com-passion-ate and faithful deeds, O Lord,

for you have al-ways acted in this man-ner.
Do not hold a-gainst me the sins of my youth
or my re-bel-lious acts!
Be-cause you are faithful to me,

Ex-tend to me your fa-vor, O Lord!
The Lord is both kind and fair;
that is why he teaches sinners the right way to live.
May he show the hum-ble what is right!

May he teach the hum-ble his way!
The Lord al-ways proves faithful and re-lia-ble
to those who follow the de-mands of his cove-nant.
For the sake of your repu-ta-tion, O Lord, for-give my sin,

For my sin is great.
The Lord shows his faithful follow-ers the way they should live.
They ex-peri-ence his fa-vor;
their de-scen-dants in-herit the land.

The Lord's loyal follow-ers re-ceive his guid-ance,
and he re-veals his cove-nant-al de-mands to them.
I con-tin-ual-ly look to/the Lord for help,
for he will free my feet from/the ene-my's net.

Turn toward me and have mer-cy on me,
for I am a-lone and op-pressed!
De-liver me from my dis-tress;
res-cue me from my suffer-ing!

For-give all my sins! See my pain and suffer-ing!
Watch my ene-mies, for they out-number me;
they hate me and want to harm me.
Pro-tect me and de-liver me!

Please do not let me be hu-mili-at-ed,
for I have taken shelter in you!
May in-tegri-ty and godli-ness pro-tect me, for I re-ly on you!
O God, res-cue Is-ra-el from all their dis-tress!

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 Acts 7:59-8:8


They continued to stone Stephen while he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!” Then he fell to his knees and cried out with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them!” When he had said this, he died. And Saul agreed completely with killing him.

Now on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were forced to scatter throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria. Some devout men buried Stephen and made loud lamentation over him. But Saul was trying to destroy the church; entering one house after another, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison.

Now those who had been forced to scatter went around proclaiming the good news of the word. Philip went down to the main city of Samaria and began proclaiming the Christ to them. The crowds were paying attention with one mind to what Philip said, as they heard and saw the miraculous signs he was performing. For unclean spirits, crying with loud shrieks, were coming out of many who were possessed, and many paralyzed and lame people were healed. So there was great joy in that city.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with _ you.

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.
