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.
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 1 John 5:1-12


Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been fathered by God, and everyone who loves the father loves the child fathered by him. By this we know that we love the children of God: whenever we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God: that we keep his commandments. And his commandments do not weigh us down, because everyone who has been fathered by God conquers the world.

This is the conquering power that has conquered the world: our faith. Now who is the person who has conquered the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? Jesus Christ is the one who came by water and blood—not by the water only, but by the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify, the Spirit and the water and the blood, and these three are in agreement.

If we accept the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater because this is the testimony of God that he has testified concerning his Son. (The one who believes in the Son of God has the testimony in himself; the one who does not believe God has made him a liar because he has not believed in the testimony that God has testified concerning his Son.) And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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