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! Quickly 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 Acts 20:17-35


From Miletus he sent a message to Ephesus, telling the elders of the church to come to him.

When they arrived, he said to them, “You yourselves know how I lived the whole time I was with you, from the first day I set foot in the province of Asia, serving the Lord with all humility and with tears, and with the trials that happened to me because of the plots of the Jews. You know that I did not hold back from proclaiming to you anything that would be helpful, and from teaching you publicly and from house to house, testifying to both Jews and Greeks about repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus. And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem without knowing what will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit warns me in town after town that imprisonment and persecutions are waiting for me. But I do not consider my life worth anything to myself, so that I may finish my task and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.

“And now I know that none of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom will see me again. Therefore I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of you all. For I did not hold back from announcing to you the whole purpose of God. Watch out for yourselves and for all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God that he obtained with the blood of his own Son. I know that after I am gone fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Even from among your own group men will arise, teaching perversions of the truth to draw the disciples away after them. Therefore be alert, remembering that night and day for three years I did not stop warning each one of you with tears. And now I entrust you to God and to the message of his grace. This message is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. I have desired no one’s silver or gold or clothing. You yourselves know that these hands of mine provided for my needs and the needs of those who were with me. By all these things, I have shown you that by working in this way we must help the weak, and remember the words of the Lord Jesus that he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Amen.

A Collect for Protection

O God, the life of all who live, the light of the faithful, the strength of those who labor, and the repose of the dead: We thank you for the blessings of the day that is past, and humbly ask for your protection through the coming night. Bring us in safety to the morning hours; through him who died and rose again for us, your Son our Savior Jesus Christ.

Amen.

Prayer for Mission

O God and Father of all, whom the whole heavens adore: Let the whole earth also worship you, all nations obey you, all tongues confess and bless you, and men and women everywhere love you and serve you in peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

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.
