Evening Prayer - Thursday Mar 24 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

Thursday - 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 8


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



O Lord, our Lord, how mag-nifi-cent
is your repu-tation through-out the earth!
You re-veal your majes-ty in/the heavens a-bove!
From the mouths of children and nursing ba-bies

You have or-dained praise on/ac-count of your adver-sar-ies,
so that you might put/an end to/the vin-dictive ene-mies.
When I look up at/the heavens, which your fingers made,
and see the moon and/the stars, which you set in place,

Of what im-portance is the human race,
that you should no-tice them?
Of what im-portance is man-kind,
that you should pay at-tention to them?

You made them a little less than the heaven-ly be-ings.
You crowned man-kind with honor and majes-ty.
you ap-point them to rule over your cre-a-tion;
you have placed every-thing under their au-thori-ty,

in-cluding all the sheep and cat-tle,
as well as the wild ani-mals,
the birds in/the sky, the fish in/the sea
and every-thing that moves through the currents of/the sea.

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 138


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will give you thanks with all my heart;
be-fore the heaven-ly as-sembly I will sing praises to you.
I will bow down toward your holy tem-ple,
and give thanks to your name,

be-cause/of your loyal love and faithful-ness,
for you have ex-alted your promise a-bove the en-tire sky.
When I cried out for help, you an-swered me.
You made me bold and ener-gized me.

Let all the kings of/the earth give thanks to you, O Lord,
when they hear the words you speak.
Let them sing/a-bout the Lord's deeds,
for the Lord's splendor is mag-nifi-cent.

Though the Lord is ex-alted, he looks after the low-ly,
and hum-bles the proud from far/a-way.
Even when I must walk in/the midst of danger, you re-vive me.
You op-pose my angry ene-mies,

and your right hand de-livers me.
The Lord a-veng-es me.
O Lord, your loyal love en-dures.
Do not a-bandon those whom you have made!

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 more crafty than any other wild animal that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, 'You shall not eat from any tree in the garden'?" The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden; but God said, 'You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, nor shall you touch it, or you shall die.'" But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die; for God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made loincloths for themselves. They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.

But the LORD God called to the man, and said to him, "Where are you?" He said, "I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself."

He said, "Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?" The man said, "The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me fruit from the tree, and I ate." Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this that you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent tricked me, and I ate."

The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, cursed are you among all animals and among all wild creatures; upon your belly you shall go, and dust you shall eat all the days of your life. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will strike your head, and you will strike his heel."

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



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.
Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go/in peace as you have prom-ised;

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 Ephesians 3:14-21


For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O ruler of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-passing human under-stand-ing.

All nations will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,

and will be for-ever A-men.

Pour your grace into our hearts, O Lord, that we who have known the incarnation of your Son Jesus Christ, announced by an angel to the Virgin Mary, may by his cross and passion be brought to the glory of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being: We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

We pray for peace and especially for the people of Ukraine, saying together,

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. Amen.

Amen.
