Evening Prayer - Thursday January 28 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





H325 - Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence



1 Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
and with fear and trembling stand;
ponder nothing earthly minded,
for with blessing in his hand
Christ our Lord to earth descendeth,
our full homage to command.
2 King of kings, yet born of Mary,
as of old on earth he stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
in the Body and the Blood
he will give to all the faithful
his own self for heavenly food.
3 Rank on rank the host of heaven
spreads its vanguard on the way.
as the Light of Light descendeth
from the realms of endless day,
that the powers of hell may vanish
as the darkness clears away.
4 At his feet the six-winged seraph;
cherubim, with sleepless eye
veil their faces to the Presence,
as with ceaseless voice they cry,
"Alleluia, alleluia!
Alleluia, Lord Most High!"

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

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 Galatians 3:1-14


You foolish Galatians! Who has cast a spell on you? Before your eyes Jesus Christ was vividly portrayed as crucified! The only thing I want to learn from you is this: Did you receive the Spirit by doing the works of the law or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? Although you began with the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by human effort? Have you suffered so many things for nothing?—if indeed it was for nothing. Does God then give you the Spirit and work miracles among you by your doing the works of the law or by your believing what you heard?

Just as Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness, so then, understand that those who believe are the sons of Abraham. And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, proclaimed the gospel to Abraham ahead of time, saying, “All the nations will be blessed in you.” So then those who believe are blessed along with Abraham the believer. 

For all who rely on doing the works of the law are under a curse because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not keep on doing everything written in the book of the law.” Now it is clear no one is justified before God by the law because the righteous one will live by faith. But the law is not based on faith, but the one who does the works of the law will live by them. 

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us (because it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”) in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham would come to the Gentiles, so that we could receive the promise of the Spirit by faith.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - 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 Mark 6:30-46


Then the apostles gathered around Jesus and told him everything they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come with me privately to an isolated place and rest a while” (for many were coming and going, and there was no time to eat). So they went away by themselves in a boat to some remote place. But many saw them leaving and recognized them, and they hurried on foot from all the towns and arrived there ahead of them. As Jesus came ashore he saw the large crowd, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he taught them many things.

When it was already late, his disciples came to him and said, “This is an isolated place and it is already very late. Send them away so that they can go into the surrounding countryside and villages and buy something for themselves to eat.” But he answered them, “You give them something to eat.” And they said, “Should we go and buy bread for 200 silver coins and give it to them to eat?” 

He said to them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.” When they found out, they said, “Five—and two fish.” Then he directed them all to sit down in groups on the green grass. So they reclined in groups of hundreds and fifties. He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. He gave them to his disciples to serve the people, and he divided the two fish among them all. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the broken pieces and fish that were left over, 12 baskets full. Now there were 5,000 men who ate the bread.

Immediately Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dispersed the crowd. After saying goodbye to them, he went to the mountain to pray.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

L060 - How Great Thou Art! (LEVAS2)

Piano     PARTS     Soprano     Alto     Tenor     Bass

HARVEST PARTS

1 O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made,
I see the stars I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow’r throughout the universe displayed.
Refrain:
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
2 When through the woods and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees,
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze. [Refrain]
3 And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Send him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin. [Refrain]
4 When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God how great thou art.
Refrain:
Then sings my soul, my Savior, God, to Thee;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
