Evening Prayer - Wednesday September 14 2021



Feast of the Holy Cross


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 118


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




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 Genesis 3:1-15


Now the serpent was shrewder than any of the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Is it really true that God said, ‘You must not eat from any tree of the orchard’?” The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit from the trees of the orchard; but concerning the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the orchard God said, ‘You must not eat from it, and you must not touch it, or else you will die.’” The serpent said to the woman, “Surely you will not die, for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will open and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

When the woman saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God moving about in the orchard at the breezy time of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the orchard. But the Lord God called to the man and said to him, “Where are you?” The man replied, “I heard you moving about in the orchard, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.” And the Lord God said, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?” The man said, “The woman whom you gave me, she gave me some fruit from the tree and I ate it.” So the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman replied, “The serpent tricked me, and I ate.”

The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
cursed are you above all the cattle
and all the living creatures of the field!
On your belly you will crawl
and dust you will eat all the days of your life.


And I will put hostility between you and the woman
and between your offspring and her offspring;
he will strike your head,
and you will strike his heel.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Tuesday - Second Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Seek the Lord while he wills to/be found;
call up-on him when he draws near.
Let the wicked for-sake their ways
and the evil ones their thoughts;

And let them turn to/the Lord,
and he will have com-passion,
Let then re-turn to our God,
for he will rich-ly par-don.

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from/the heav-ens
and re-turns not a-gain,
but wat-ers the whole earth,

Bring-ing forth life
and giving a-bun-dant growth
And seed for re-plan-ting
and bread and fruit for eat-ing,

So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;
it will not re-turn to me emp-ty;
But it will ac-com-plish that which I have pur-posed,
and prosper in that for which I sent 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.


A reading from 1 Peter 3:17-22


For it is better to suffer for doing good, if God wills it, than for doing evil.


Because Christ also suffered once for sins,
the just for the unjust,
to bring you to God,
by being put to death in the flesh
but by being made alive in the spirit.


In it he went and preached to the spirits in prison,

after they were disobedient long ago when God patiently waited in the days of Noah as an ark was being constructed. In the ark a few, that is eight souls, were delivered through water. And this prefigured baptism, which now saves you—not the washing off of physical dirt but the pledge of a good conscience to God—through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who went into heaven and is at the right hand of God with angels and authorities and powers subject to him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
