Evening Prayer - Monday January 18 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



LEVAS2 (L012) We are marching to Zion


Piano    PARTS


1 Come, we that love the Lord,
And let our joys be known;
Join in a song with sweet accord,
Join in a song with sweet accord,
And thus surround the throne,
And thus surround the throne.
Refrain:
We’re marching to Zion,
Beautiful, beautiful Zion;
We’re marching upward to Zion,
The beautiful city of God.
2 Let those refuse to sing
Who never knew our God;
But children of the heav’nly King,
But children of the heav’nly King,
May speak their joys abroad,
May speak their joys abroad. (refrain)
3 The hill of Zion yields
A thousand sacred sweets
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Before we reach the heav’nly fields,
Or walk the golden streets,
Or walk the golden streets. (refrain)
4 Then let our songs abound,
And ev’ry tear be dry;
We’re marching through Immanuel’s ground,
We’re marching thro’ Immanuel’s ground,
To fairer worlds on high,
To fairer worlds on high. (refrain)

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 118


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Give thanks to/the Lord, for he is good
Yes, his loyal love en-dures for-ev-er!
Let all Is-ra-el say,
Yes, his loyal love en-dures for-ev-er!

Let the fami-ly of Aa-ron say,
Yes, his loyal love en-dures for-ev-er!
Let the loyal follow-ers of/the Lord say,
Yes, his loyal love en-dures for-ev-er!

In my dis-tress
I cried _ out to/the Lord.
The Lord an-swered me
and put me in a wide o-pen place.

The Lord is on my side, I am not a-fraid!
What can people do to me?
The Lord is on my side as my help-er.
I look in triumph on those who hate me.

It is better to take shelter in/the Lord
than to trust in peo-ple.
It is better to take shelter in/the Lord
than to trust in princ-es.

All the na-tions sur-round-ed me.
In/the name of/the Lord I pushed them a-way.
They sur-round-ed me, yes, they sur-round-ed me.
In/the name of/the Lord I pushed them a-way.

They sur-round-ed me like bees.
In/the name of/the Lord I pushed them a-way.
But they disap-peared as quickly as/a fire a-mong thorns.
In/the name of/the Lord I pushed them a-way.

You ag-gressive-ly at-tacked me
and tried to knock me down,
but the Lord helped me.
The Lord gives me strength and pro-tects me;

He has be-come my de-liver-er.
They cele-brate de-liver-ance in/the tents of/the god-ly.
The Lord's right hand con-quers,
the Lord's right hand gives vic-to-ry,

The Lord's right hand con-quers.
I will not die, but live,
and I will pro-claim what the Lord has done.
The Lord se-vere-ly punished me,

but he did not hand me over to death.
O-pen for me the gates of/the just king's tem-ple!
I will en-ter through them
and give thanks _ to/the Lord.

This is the Lord's gate
the god-ly en-ter through it.
I will give you thanks, for you an-swered me,
and have be-come my de-liver-er.

The stone which the builders re-ject-ed
has be-come the corner-stone.
This is the Lord's do-ing.
It is a-mazing in our sight!

This is the day the Lord has made.
We will be glad and re-joice in it.
Please Lord, de-liv-er!
Lord, please grant us suc-cess!

May the one who comes in/the name of/the Lord be blessed!
We will pro-nounce blessings on you in/the Lord's tem-ple.
The Lord is God
and he has de-livered us.

You are my God
and I will give you thanks!
You are my God
and I will al-ways praise you!

Give thanks to/the Lord, for he is good
and his loyal love en-dures for-ev-er!
This is the day the Lord has made.
We will be glad and re-joice in it.

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 Ezekiel 34:11-16


“‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: Look, I myself will search for my sheep and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his flock when he is among his scattered sheep, so I will seek out my flock. I will rescue them from all the places where they have been scattered on a cloudy, dark day. I will bring them out from among the peoples and gather them from foreign countries; I will bring them to their own land. I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the streams and all the inhabited places of the land. 

"In a good pasture I will feed them; the mountain heights of Israel will be their pasture. There they will lie down in a lush pasture, and they will feed on rich grass on the mountains of Israel. I myself will feed my sheep and I myself will make them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord. I will seek the lost and bring back the strays; I will bandage the injured and strengthen the sick, but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them—with judgment!"

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your ser-vant 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-light-en the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your ser-vant free
to go in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 John 21:15-22


Then when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these do?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus told him, “Feed my lambs.” Jesus said a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I love you.” Jesus told him, “Shepherd my sheep.” Jesus said a third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was distressed that Jesus asked him a third time, “Do you love me?” and said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus replied, “Feed my sheep. 

"I tell you the solemn truth, when you were young, you tied your clothes around you and went wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will tie you up and bring you where you do not want to go.” (Now Jesus said this to indicate clearly by what kind of death Peter was going to glorify God.) After he said this, Jesus told Peter, “Follow me.”

Peter turned around and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them. (This was the disciple who had leaned back against Jesus’ chest at the meal and asked, “Lord, who is the one who is going to betray you?”) So when Peter saw him, he asked Jesus, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Amen.

LEVAS2 (L165)   Higher Ground

Piano     PARTS


1 I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.”
Refrain:
Lord, lift me up, and let me stand
By faith, on heaven’s table land;
A higher plane than I have found,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
2 My heart has no desire to stay
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these abound,
My prayer, my aim is higher ground. [Refrain]
3 I want to live above the world,
Though satan’s darts at me are hurled;
For faith has caught a joyful sound,
The song of saints on higher ground. [Refrain]
4 I want to scale the utmost height,
And catch a gleam of glory bright;
But still I’ll pray till heav’n I’ve found,
“Lord, lead me on the higher ground.” [Refrain]
