Evening Prayer - Tuesday July 13 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






Tuesday - 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

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 36


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




An evil man is re-bel-lious to/the core,
and He does not fear God,
for he is too proud
to recog-nize and give up his sin.

The words he speaks are sinful and de-ceit-ful;
he does not care a-bout doing what is wise and right.
He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed;
he is com-mitted to a sinful life-style;

he does not re-ject what is e-vil.
O Lord, your loyal love reaches to/the sky;
your faithful-ness to/the clouds.
Your jus-tice is like the highest moun-tains,

Your fair-ness is like the deepest sea;
you, Lord, pre-serve man-kind and the ani-mal king-dom.
How pre-cious is your loyal love, O God!
The human race finds shelter under your wings.

They are filled with food from your house,
and you al-low them to drink from/the riv-er of your deli-ca-cy.
For with you is the foun-tain of life;
in your light we see light.

Ex-tend your loyal love to your faithful follow-ers,
and vindi-cate the moral-ly up-right!
Do not let arro-gant men over-take me,
or let evil men make me home-less!

They have fall-en!
I can see the evil-do-ers!
They have been knocked down
and are un-able to get up!

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 39


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I de-cided, I will watch what I say
and make sure I don't sin with my tongue.
I will put a muzzle over my mouth
while in/the pres-ence of an evil man.

I was stone si-lent;
I held back the urge to speak.
My frus-tra-tion grew;
my anx-ie-ty in-tensi-fied.

As I thought a-bout it, I be-came im-pa-tient.
Fi-nal-ly I spoke these words:
O Lord, help me under-stand my mor-tali-ty
and the brevi-ty of life!

Let me real-ize how quickly my life will pass!
Look, you make my days short-lived,
and my life span is noth-ing
In your per-spec-tive, mere mo-ments.

Sure-ly all peo-ple,
even those who seem se-cure,
are nothing but va-por.
Sure-ly people go through life as mere ghosts.

Sure-ly they ac-cumu-late worth-less wealth
without knowing who will e-ven-tual-ly haul it a-way.
But now, O Lord, up-on what am I re-ly-ing?
You are my on-ly hope!

De-liver me from all my sins of re-bel-lion!
Do not make me the object of fools' in-sults!
I am si-lent and cannot o-pen my mouth
be-cause of what you have done.

Please stop wounding me!
You have al-most beaten me to death!
You se-vere-ly disci-pline people for their sins;
like a moth you slowly de-vour their strength.

Sure-ly all people are a mere va-por.
So hear my prayer, O Lord!
List-en to my cry for help!
Do not ig-nore my sob-bing!

For I am a foreign resi--dent with you,
a tempo-rar-y set-tler, just/as all my an-ces-tors were.
Turn your an-gry gaze a-way from me,
so I can be happy be-fore I pass a-way.

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 12:1-17


About that time King Herod laid hands on some from the church to harm them. He had James, the brother of John, executed with a sword. When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter too. (This took place during the feast of Unleavened Bread.) When he had seized him, he put him in prison, handing him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him. Herod planned to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. So Peter was kept in prison, but those in the church were earnestly praying to God for him. On that very night before Herod was going to bring him out for trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, while guards in front of the door were keeping watch over the prison. Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared, and a light shone in the prison cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up, saying, “Get up quickly!” And the chains fell off Peter’s wrists. The angel said to him, “Fasten your belt and put on your sandals.” Peter did so. Then the angel said to him, “Put on your cloak and follow me.” Peter went out and followed him; he did not realize that what was happening through the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. After they had passed the first and second guards, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went outside and walked down one narrow street, when at once the angel left him. When Peter came to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from everything the Jewish people were expecting to happen.”

When Peter realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John Mark, where many people had gathered together and were praying. When he knocked at the door of the outer gate, a slave girl named Rhoda answered. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she did not open the gate, but ran back in and told them that Peter was standing at the gate. But they said to her, “You’ve lost your mind!” But she kept insisting that it was Peter, and they kept saying, “It is his angel!” Now Peter continued knocking, and when they opened the door and saw him, they were greatly astonished. He motioned to them with his hand to be quiet and then related how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. He said, “Tell James and the brothers these things,” and then he left and went to another place.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - 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;

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 Mark 2:1-12


Now after some days, when he returned to Capernaum, the news spread that he was at home. So many gathered that there was no longer any room, not even by the door, and he preached the word to them. Some people came bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. When they were not able to bring him in because of the crowd, they removed the roof above Jesus. Then, after tearing it out, they lowered the stretcher the paralytic was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” Now some of the experts in the law were sitting there, turning these things over in their minds: “Why does this man speak this way? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Now immediately, when Jesus realized in his spirit that they were contemplating such thoughts, he said to them, “Why are you thinking such things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Stand up, take your stretcher, and walk’? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,”—he said to the paralytic— “I tell you, stand up, take your stretcher, and go home.” And immediately the man stood up, took his stretcher, and went out in front of them all. They were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
