Evening Prayer - Thursday April 15 2021

Even Song - Thursday - The Annuciation of Our Lord Jesus Christ to Mary

Service Date: Thursday, March 25, 2021



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

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

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 thy praises, O God:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

thou art 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 148


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from/the sky!
Praise _ him in/the heav-ens!
Praise him, all his an-gels!
Praise him, all his heaven-ly as-sem-bly!

Praise him, O sun and moon!
Praise him, all you shin-y stars!
Praise him, O highest heav-en,
and you waters a-bove the sky!

Let them praise the name of/the Lord,
for he gave the com-mand
and they came into ex-ist-ence.
He es-tab-lished them so they would en-dure;

he issued a de-cree
that will not be re-voked.
Praise the Lord from/the earth,
you sea creatures and all you ocean depths,

O fire and hail, snow and clouds,
O stormy wind that carries out his or-ders,
you mountains and all you hills,
you fruit trees and all you ce-dars,

you ani-mals and all you cat-tle,
you _ creeping things and birds,
you kings of/the earth and all you na-tions,
you princes and all you leaders on/the earth,

you young women and young men,
you elder-ly, a-long with you chil-dren!
Let them praise the name of/the Lord,
for his name a-lone is ex-alt-ed;

his maj-es-ty ex-tends over the earth and sky.
He has made his people vic-to-ri-ous,
and given all his loyal follow-ers reason to praise the Isra-elites,
the people who are close to him. Praise the Lord!

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 18:21-50


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




For I have o-beyed the Lord's com-mands;
I have not re-belled a-gainst my God.
For I am/a-ware of all his regu-la-tions,
and I do not re-ject his rules.

I was inno-cent be-fore him,
and kept my-self from sin-ning.
The Lord re-warded me for my god-ly deeds;
he took no-tice of my blame-less be-hav-ior.

You prove to be loy-al
to _ one who is faithful;
you prove to be trust-wor-thy
to one who is inno-cent.

You prove to be re-lia-ble
to one who is blame-less,
but you prove to be de-cep-tive
to one who is per-verse.

For you de-liver op-pressed peo-ple,
but you bring down those who have a proud look.
In-deed, you light my lamp, Lord.
My God il-lumi-nates the dark-ness a-round me.

In-deed, with your help
I can charge a-gainst an ar-my;
by my God's power
I can jump over a wall.

The one true God acts in a faithful man-ner;
the Lord's prom-ise is re-lia-ble;
he is/a shield to all who take shelter in him.
In-deed, who is God be-sides the Lord?

Who is/a pro-tec-tor be-sides our God?
The one true God gives me strength;
he re-moves the obsta-cles in my way.
He gives me the a-gili-ty of a deer;

he en-a-bles me to ne-go-tiate the rugged ter-rain.
He trains my hands for bat-tle;
my arms can bend even the strong-est bow.
You give me your pro-tec-tive shield;

your right hand sup-ports me;
your willing-ness to help en-a-bles me to pre-vail.
You wid-en my path;
and my feet do not slip.

I chase my ene-mies and catch them;
I do not turn back un-til I wipe them out.
I beat them to death;
they all fall at my feet.

You give me strength for bat-tle;
you make my foes kneel be-fore me.
You make my ene-mies re-treat;
I de-stroy those who hate me.

They cry out, but there is no one to help them;
they _ cry out to/the Lord,
but he does not an-swer them.
I grind them as fine as wind-blown dust;

I beat them under-foot;
the are like clay in/the street.
You res-cue me from a hos-tile ar-my;
you make me a leader of na-tions;

Peo-ple over whom I had no au-thor-i-ty
are now my loyal sub-jects.
When they hear of my ex-ploits,
they sub-mit them-selves to me.

Foreign-ers are power-less be-fore me;
foreign-ers lose their cour-age;
they shake with fear as they leave their strong-holds.
The Lord is/a-live! My pro-tec-tor is praise-wor-thy!

The God who de-livers me is ex-alted as king!
The one true God com-plete-ly vindi-cates me;
he makes na-tions sub-mit to me.
He de-livers me from my ene-mies;

you snatch me a-way from those who at-tack me;
you res-cue me from vio-lent men.
So I will give you thanks
be-fore the na-tions, O Lord!

I will sing praises to you!
He gives his king mag-nifi-cent vic-to-ry;
he is faithful to his chosen rul-er,
to Da-vid and his de-scend-ants 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 1 John 2:18-29


Children, it is the last hour, and just as you heard that the antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have appeared. We know from this that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us because if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us. But they went out from us to demonstrate that all of them do not belong to us.

Nevertheless you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. I have not written to you that you do not know the truth, but that you do know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This one is the antichrist: the person who denies the Father and the Son. Everyone who denies the Son does not have the Father either. The person who confesses the Son has the Father also.

As for you, what you have heard from the beginning must remain in you. If what you heard from the beginning remains in you, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father. Now this is the promise that he himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you about those who are trying to deceive you.

Now as for you, the anointing that you received from him resides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things, it is true and is not a lie. Just as it has taught you, you reside in him.

And now, little children, remain in him, so that when he appears we may have confidence and not shrink away from him in shame when he comes back. If you know that he is righteous, you also know that everyone who practices righteousness has been fathered by him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - Song of Praise


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Glory to you, Lord God of our fath-ers;
you are worthy of praise; glory to you.
Glory to you for/the radi-ance of your holy Name;
we will praise you and highly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glory to you in/the splen-dor of your tem-ple;
on the throne of your maj-es-ty, glory to you.
Glory to you, seated be-tween the Cher-u-bim;
we will praise you and highly ex-alt you for ev-er.

Glory to you, be-hold-ing the depths;
in the high vault of heav-en, glory to you.
Glory to you, Fath-er, Son, and Ho-ly Spi-rit;
we will praise you and highly ex-alt you for ev-er.


A reading from Luke 3:1-14


In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip was tetrarch of the region of Iturea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness. He went into all the region around the Jordan River, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

As it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah,

“The voice of one shouting in the wilderness:

‘Prepare the way for the Lord,

make his paths straight.

Every valley will be filled,

and every mountain and hill will be brought low,

and the crooked will be made straight,

and the rough ways will be made smooth,

and all humanity will see the salvation of God.’”

So John said to the crowds that came out to be baptized by him, “You offspring of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Therefore produce fruit that proves your repentance, and don’t begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you that God can raise up children for Abraham from these stones! Even now the ax is laid at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.”

So the crowds were asking him, “What then should we do?” John answered them, “The person who has two tunics must share with the person who has none, and the person who has food must do likewise.” Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and they said to him, “Teacher, what should we do?” He told them, “Collect no more than you are required to.” Then some soldiers also asked him, “And as for us – what should we do?” He told them, “Take money from no one by violence or by false accusation, and be content with your pay.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
