Evening Prayer - Friday September 10 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




Friday - 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 51


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Have mercy on me, O God,
be-cause of your loyal love!
Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion,
wipe a-way my re-bel-lious acts!

Wash a-way my wrong-do-ing!
Cleanse me of all my sins!
For I am a-ware of my re-bel-lious acts;
I am for-ever conscious of my sin.

A-gainst you, you a-bove all, I have sinned;
I have done what is evil in your sight.
So you are just when you con-front me;
you are right when you con-demn me.

Look, I was guilty of sin from birth,
a sinner the moment my mother con-ceived me.
Look, you de-sire in-tegri-ty in/the inner man;
you want me to pos-sess wis-dom.

Cleanse me with hys-sop and I will be pure;
wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
Grant me the ulti-mate joy of being for-giv-en!
May the bones you crushed re-joice!

Hide your face from my sins!
Wipe a-way all my guilt!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, O God!
Re-new a right spirit with-in me!

Do not re-ject me!
Do not take your holy Spi-rit a-way from me!
Let me a-gain ex-peri-ence the joy of your de-liver-ance!
Sus-tain me by giving me the de-sire to o-bey!

Then I will teach rebels your merci-ful ways,
and sinners will turn to you.
Res-cue me from/the guilt of mur-der, O God,
the God who de-livers me!

Then my tongue will shout for joy
be-cause of your righteous-ness.
O Lord, give me the words!
Then my mouth will praise you.

Certain-ly you do not want a sacri-fice,
or else I would offer it;
you do not de-sire a burnt sacri-fice.
The sacri-fices God de-sires are a hum-ble spirit O God,

a hum-ble and re-pent-ant heart you will not re-ject.
Be-cause you favor Zi-on, do what is good for her!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, O God!
Re-new a right spirit with-in me!

Forti-fy the walls of Je-ru-sa-lem!
Then you will ac-cept the pro-per sacri-fic-es,
burnt sacri-fices and whole offer-ings;
then bulls will be sacri-ficed on your al-tar.

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 Philippians 3:1-16


Finally, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! To write this again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.

Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of those who mutilate the flesh! For we are the circumcision, the ones who worship by the Spirit of God, exult in Christ Jesus, and do not rely on human credentials —though mine, too, are significant. If someone thinks he has good reasons to put confidence in human credentials, I have more: I was circumcised on the eighth day, from the people of Israel and the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews. I lived according to the law as a Pharisee. In my zeal for God I persecuted the church. According to the righteousness stipulated in the law I was blameless. But these assets I have come to regard as liabilities because of Christ. More than that, I now regard all things as liabilities compared to the far greater value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things —indeed, I regard them as dung!—that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not because I have my own righteousness derived from the law, but because I have the righteousness that comes by way of Christ’s faithfulness—a righteousness from God that is in fact based on Christ’s faithfulness. My aim is to know him, to experience the power of his resurrection, to share in his sufferings, and to be like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already attained this—that is, I have not already been perfected—but I strive to lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus also laid hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself to have attained this. Instead I am single-minded: Forgetting the things that are behind and reaching out for the things that are ahead, with this goal in mind, I strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let those of us who are “perfect” embrace this point of view. If you think otherwise, God will reveal to you the error of your ways. Nevertheless, let us live up to the standard that we have already attained.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Friday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor      Soprano      Response      Cantor      Bass      Alto      PDF      All     



Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a- fraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure de- fense,
and he will be my Sav- ior.

There-fore you shall draw water with re- joic- ing
from the springs of sal- va- tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to/the Lord and call up- on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo- ples;
see that they re-member that his Name is ex- alt- ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zi- on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is- ra- el.

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 Matthew 3:1-12


In those days John the Baptist came into the wilderness of Judea proclaiming, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” For he is the one about whom the prophet Isaiah had spoken:

“The voice of one shouting in the wilderness,

‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make his paths straight.’”

Now John wore clothing made from camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist, and his diet consisted of locusts and wild honey. Then people from Jerusalem, as well as all Judea and all the region around the Jordan, were going out to him, and he was baptizing them in the Jordan River as they confessed their sins.

But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “You offspring of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the coming wrath? Therefore produce fruit that proves your repentance, and don’t think you can 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.

“I baptize you with water, for repentance, but the one coming after me is more powerful than I am—I am not worthy to carry his sandals! He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clean out his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff he will burn up with inextinguishable fire!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
