Evening Prayer - Friday January 22 2021



Invitation


Confession

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name.

Amen

May Almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us all our sins
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
strengthen us in all goodness,
and by the power of the Holy Spirit
keep us in eternal life.

Amen

Friday - Evensong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Wor-ship the Lord in/the beau-ty of his holi-ness;
let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth in your sight as in-cense,
the lifting up of my hands as the eve-ning sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set the Lord al-ways be-fore me;
be-cause he is at my right hand, I shall not fall.
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.



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 35


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




O Lord, fight those who fight with me!
At-tack those who at-tack me!
Grab your small shield and large shield,
and rise up to help me!

Use your spear and lance
a-gainst those who chase me!
As-sure me with these words:
I am your de-liver-er!

May those who seek my life
be em-bar-rassed and hu-mili-at-ed!
May those who plan to harm me
be turned back and a-shamed!

May they be like wind driven chaff,
as the Lord's an-gel at-tacks them!
May their path be dark and slip-per-y,
as the Lord's an-gel chases them!

I did not harm them,
but they hid a net to catch me
and dug a pit to trap me.
Let de-struc-tion take them by sur-prise!

Let the net they hid catch them!
Let them fall into de-struc-tion!
Then I will re-joice in/the Lord
and be happy be-cause of his de-liver-ance.

With all my strength I will say,
O Lord, who can com-pare to you?
You res-cue the op-pressed
from those who try to over-pow-er them;

the op-pressed and need-y
from those who try to rob them.
Vio-lent men per-jure them-selves,
and false-ly ac-cuse me.

They re-pay me evil for/the good I have done;
I am over-whelmed with sor-row.
When they were sick, I wore sack-cloth,
and re-frained from eat-ing food.

If I am ly-ing,
may my prayers go un-an-swered!
I mourned for them
as I would for/a friend or my broth-er.

I bowed down in sor-row
as if I were mourning for my moth-er.
But when I stum-bled,
they re-joiced and gathered to-geth-er;

they gathered to-gether to am-bush me.
They tore at me without stop-ping to rest.
When I stum-bled,
they taunt-ed me re-lent-less-ly,

and tried to bite me.
O Lord, how long are you going to watch this?
Res-cue me from their de-struc-tive at-tacks;
guard my life from/the young li-ons!

Then I will give you thanks in/the great as-sem-bly;
I will praise you be-fore a large crowd of peo-ple!
Don't let my ene-mies gloat over me!
Don't let those who hate me carry out their schemes!

For they don't try to make peace with oth-ers,
but plan ways to de-ceive
those who live peace-fully in/the land.
They are ready to de-vour me;

they say, Aha! A-ha! We've got you!
But you take no-tice, Lord; don't be si-lent!
O Lord, don't re-main far a-way from me!
Rouse your-self, wake up and vindi-cate me!

My God and Lord, de-fend my just cause!
Vindi-cate me by your jus-tice, O Lord my God!
Don't let them gloat over me!
Don't let them say to them-selves, A-ha!

We have what we want-ed!
Don't let them say, We have de-voured him!
May those who re-joice in my trou-bles
be total-ly em-bar-rassed and a-shamed!

May those who arro-gant-ly taunt me be covered with shame
May those who de-sire my vindi-ca-tion
shout for joy and re-joice!
May they con-tin-ual-ly say, May the Lord be praised,

for he wants his servant to be se-cure.
Then I will tell others a-bout your jus-tice,
and praise you all day long.
May the Lord be praised for-ev-er!

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 Ephesians 6:1-9


Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment accompanied by a promise, namely, “that it will go well with you and that you will live a long time on the earth.”

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but raise them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Slaves, obey your human masters with fear and trembling, in the sincerity of your heart, as to Christ, not like those who do their work only when someone is watching—as people-pleasers—but as slaves of Christ doing the will of God from the heart. Obey with enthusiasm, as though serving the Lord and not people, because you know that each person, whether slave or free, if he does something good, this will be rewarded by the Lord.

Masters, treat your slaves the same way, giving up the use of threats, because you know that both you and they have the same master in heaven, and there is no favoritism with him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

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.


A reading from Mark 4:35-41


On that day, when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go across to the other side of the lake.” So after leaving the crowd, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat, and other boats were with him. Now a great windstorm developed and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was nearly swamped. But he was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. They woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?” So he got up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Be quiet! Calm down!” Then the wind stopped, and it was dead calm. And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?” They were overwhelmed by fear and said to one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and sea obey him!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,
and kings to/the bright-ness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zi-on of/the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.

LEVAS2 (L099) On Christ the solid rock

Piano    PARTS




1 My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
2 When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In ev’ry high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil. [Refrain]
3 His oath, His covenant and blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
he then is all my hope and stay. [Refrain]
4 When He shall come with trumpet sound,
O may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. [Refrain]
