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-cuing]#kjuIN] me!
List-en to me! Quickly de-liver me!

Be my pro-tector 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 worthless i-dols,
but _ I trust in/the Lord.

I will/be happy and/re-joice in your faithful-ness,
be-cause you notice 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 mercy 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 neighbors 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 broken jar.

For/I#f@UraI] 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-termine my destin-y!
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 wailing to/the grave!
May lying 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-strated his a-mazing faithful-ness to me

when/I was be-sieged by ene-mies.
I jumped to con-clusions 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 confi-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 John 3:16-21


"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. "Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God. "

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

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 mercy up-on us.
Christ, have mercy 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 servant 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.
