Evening Prayer - Monday February 28 2022




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



Monday - 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.
Worship the Lord in/the beauty 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 evening sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives/me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set/the Lord always 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 9


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will thank the Lord with all my heart!
I will tell/a-bout all your a-mazing deeds!
I will be happy and re-joice in you!
I will sing praises to you, O Most High!

When my ene-mies turn back,
they trip and are de-feated be-fore you.
For you de-fended my just cause;
from your throne you pro-nounced a just de-ci-sion.

You terri-fied the nations with your battle cry;
you de-stroyed the wick-ed;
you perma-nently wiped out all memo-ry of them.
The ene-my's cities have been re-duced to perma-nent ruin;

You de-stroyed their cit-ies;
all memo-ry of/the ene-mies has per-ished.
But the Lord rules for-ev-er;
he reigns in a just man-ner.

He judges the world fair-ly;
he makes just legal de-ci-sions for/the na-tions.
Thus the Lord pro-vides safety for/the op-pressed;
he pro-vides safety in times of trou-ble.

Your loyal follow-ers trust in you,
for you, Lord, do not a-bandon those who seek your help.
Sing praises to/the Lord, who rules in Zi-on!
Tell the nations what he has done!

For the one who takes re-venge a-gainst murder-ers
took no-tice of/the op-pressed;
he did not over-look their cry for help
when they prayed: Have mercy on me, Lord!

See how I am op-pressed
by all those who hate me,
You who can snatch me
a-way from/the gates of death!

Then I will tell/a-bout all your praise-worthy acts;
in the gates of Daughter Zi-on
I will re-joice
be-cause of your de-liver-ance.

The nations fell into the pit they had made;
their feet were caught in/the net they had hid-den.
The Lord re-vealed him-self;
He ac-com-plished jus-tice;

The wicked were en-snared by their own ac-tions.
The wicked are turned back and sent to She-ol;
this is the des-ti-ny
of all the nations that ig-nore God,

For the need-y
are not perma-nently ig-nored,
the hopes of/the op-pressed
are not for-ev-er dashed.

Rise up, Lord! Don't let men be de-fi-ant!
May the nations be judged in your pres-ence!
Terri-fy them, O Lord!
Let the nations know they are mere mor-tals!

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 15


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, who may be/a guest in your home?
Who may live on your holy hill?
Who-ever lives a blame-less life,
does what/is right, and speaks honest-ly.

He does not slan-der,
or do harm to others, or in-sult his neigh-bors.
He de-spises a rep-ro-bate,
but honors the Lord's loyal follow-ers.

He makes firm com-mit-ments
and does not re-nege on his prom-ise.
He does not charge inter-est
when he lends his mon-ey.

He does not take bribes
to testi-fy a-gainst the inno-cent.
The one who lives like this
will nev-er be shak-en.

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 2:1-13


If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.

Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed me, not only in my presence, but much more now in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

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 John 18:15-18, 25-27


Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. Since that disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest, but Peter was standing outside at the gate. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out, spoke to the woman who guarded the gate, and brought Peter in. The woman said to Peter, "You are not also one of this man's disciples, are you?" He said, "I am not." Now the slaves and the police had made a charcoal fire because it was cold, and they were standing around it and warming themselves. Peter also was standing with them and warming himself.

Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They asked him, "You are not also one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it and said, "I am not." One of the slaves of the high priest, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, asked, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?" Again Peter denied it, and at that moment the cock crowed.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For/be-hold, darkness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will/ap-pear up-on you.
Nations will stream to your light,
and kings to/the brightness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will always be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zion of/the Holy One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ruin or de-struction with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever.

Psalm 4

When I call out, an-swer me,
O God who vindi-cates me!
Though I am hemmed in,
you will lead me into a wide, o-pen place.

Have mer-cy on me
and re-spond to my prayer!
You men, how long will you try
to turn my hon-or into shame?

How long will you love what is worth-less
and search for what is de-cep-tive?
Real-ize that the Lord
shows the god-ly special fa-vor

The Lord re-sponds when I cry out to him.
Trem-ble with fear and do not sin!
Medi--tate as you lie in bed,
and re-pent of your ways!

Of-fer the pre-scribed sacri-fic-es
and al-ways trust in/the Lord!
Many say, Who can show us any-thing good?
Smile up-on us, O Lord!

You make me hap-pi-er
than those who have a-bun-dant grain and wine.
I will lie down and sleep peace-ful-ly,
for you, Lord, make me safe and se-cure.

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,

Readings



A reading from Mark 2:23-3:6


One sabbath he was going through the grainfields; and as they made their way his disciples began to pluck heads of grain. The Pharisees said to him, "Look, why are they doing what is not lawful on the sabbath?" And he said to them, "Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry and in need of food? He entered the house of God, when Abiathar was high priest, and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and he gave some to his companions." Then he said to them, "The sabbath was made for humankind, and not humankind for the sabbath; so the Son of Man is lord even of the sabbath."

Again he entered the synagogue, and a man was there who had a withered hand. They watched him to see whether he would cure him on the sabbath, so that they might accuse him. And he said to the man who had the withered hand, "Come forward." Then he said to them, "Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?" But they were silent. He looked around at them with anger; he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man, "Stretch out your hand." He stretched it out, and his hand was restored. The Pharisees went out and immediately conspired with the Herodians against him, how to destroy him.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!
