Evening Prayer - Tuesday May 3 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






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 36


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



An evil man is re-bellious to/the core,
and He does not fear God,
for he is too proud
to recog-nize and give up his sin.

The words he speaks are sinful and de-ceit-ful;
he does not care/a-bout doing what/is wise and right.
He plans ways to sin while he lies in bed;
he is com-mitted to a sinful life-style;

he does not re-ject what is e-vil.
O Lord, your loyal love reaches to/the sky;
your faithful-ness to/the clouds.
Your justice is like the highest moun-tains,

Your fairness is like the deepest sea;
you, Lord, pre-serve man-kind and the ani-mal king-dom.
How pre-cious is your loyal love, O God!
The human race finds shelter under your wings.

They are filled with food from your house,
and you al-low them to drink from/the river of your deli-ca-cy.
For with you is the foun-tain of life;
in your light we see light.

Ex-tend your loyal love to your faithful follow-ers,
and vindi-cate the moral-ly up-right!
Do not let arro-gant men over-take me,
or let evil men make me home-less!

They have fall-en!
I can see the evil-do-ers!
They have been knocked down
and are un-able to get up!

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 39


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I de-cided, I will watch what I say
and make sure I don't sin with my tongue.
I will put a muzzle over my mouth
while in/the pres-ence of an evil man.

I was stone si-lent;
I held back the urge to speak.
My frus-tration grew;
my anx-ie-ty in-tensi-fied.

As I thought/a-bout it, I be-came im-pa-tient.
Final-ly I spoke these words:
O Lord, help me under-stand my mor-tali-ty
and the brevi-ty of life!

Let me real-ize how quickly my life will pass!
Look, you make my days short-lived,
and my life span is noth-ing
In your per-spective, mere mo-ments.

Sure-ly all peo-ple,
even those who seem se-cure,
are nothing but va-por.
Surely people go through life as mere ghosts.

Surely they ac-cumu-late worth-less wealth
without knowing who will e-ventu-ally haul it a-way.
But now, O Lord, up-on what am I re-ly-ing?
You are my on-ly hope!

De-liver me from all my sins/of re-bel-lion!
Do not make me the object of fools' in-sults!
I am silent and cannot o-pen my mouth
be-cause of what you have done.

Please stop wounding me!
You have almost beaten me to death!
You se-vere-ly disci-pline people for their sins;
like a moth you slowly de-vour their strength.

Sure-ly all people are a mere va-por.
So hear my prayer, O Lord!
List-en to my cry for help!
Do not ig-nore my sob-bing!

For I am a foreign resi-dent with you,
a tempo-rary set-tler, just/as all my an-cestors were.
Turn your an-gry gaze a-way from me,
so I can be happy be-fore I pass a-way.

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 Colossians 1:1-14


Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, To the saints and faithful brothers and sisters in Christ in Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father.

In our prayers for you we always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love that you have for all the saints, because of the hope laid up for you in heaven. You have heard of this hope before in the word of the truth, the gospel that has come to you. Just as it is bearing fruit and growing in the whole world, so it has been bearing fruit among yourselves from the day you heard it and truly comprehended the grace of God. This you learned from Epaphras, our beloved fellow servant. He is a faithful minister of Christ on your behalf, and he has made known to us your love in the Spirit.

For this reason, since the day we heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God's will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully

giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we/ac-claim you;
You are the e-ternal Fath-er:
All cre-ation wor-ships you.

To you all angels, all the powers of heav-en,
Cheru-bim and Sera-phim, sing in endless praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full/of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of/a-postles praises you.
The noble fellow-ship of prophets praises you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praises you.
Through-out/the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Father, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and on-ly Son,
worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Holy Spirit, advo-cate and guide.

You, Christ, are/the king of glo-ry,
the e-ternal Son of/the Fath-er.
When you be-came man/to set us free
you did not shun the Virgin's womb.

You over-came the sting of death
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all be-liev-ers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glo-ry.
We/be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with/the price of your own blood,
and bring us with all your saints
to glory ever-lasting. A-men.

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 3:7-12


But when he saw many Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, "You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance. Do not presume to say to yourselves, 'We have Abraham as our ancestor'; for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children to Abraham. Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. "I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; 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 clear his threshing floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Tuesday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Surely, 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.

Therefore 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 Zion, ring out your joy,
for/the great one in/the midst of you
is the Holy 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.
