V: O God, make speed to save us.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost

World without end. Amen, amen!
O Gracious Light Phos hilaron with words
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,

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.
The Psalm or Psalms Appointed
Psalm 124 Nisi quia Dominus
  If the LORD had not been on our side, *
let Israel now say;
  If the LORD had not been on our side, *
when enemies rose up against us;
  Then would they have swallowed us up alive *
in their fierce anger toward us;
  Then would the waters have overwhelmed us *
and the torrent gone over us;
  Then would the raging waters *
have gone right over us.
  Blessed be the LORD! *
he has not given us over to be a prey for their teeth.
  We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowler; *
the snare is broken, and we have escaped.
  Our help is in the Name of the LORD, *
the maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 125 Qui confidunt
  Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, *
which cannot be moved, but stands fast for ever.
  The hills stand about Jerusalem; *
so does the LORD stand round about his people, from this time forth for evermore.
  The scepter of the wicked shall not hold sway over the land allotted to the just, *
so that the just shall not put their hands to evil.
  Show your goodness, O LORD, to those who are good *
and to those who are true of heart.
  As for those who turn aside to crooked ways, the LORD will lead them away with the evildoers; *
but peace be upon Israel.
Psalm 126 In convertendo
  When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, *
then were we like those who dream.
  Then was our mouth filled with laughter, *
and our tongue with shouts of joy.
  Then they said among the nations, *
"The LORD has done great things for them."
  The LORD has done great things for us, *
and we are glad indeed.
  Restore our fortunes, O LORD, *
like the watercourses of the Negev.
  Those who sowed with tears *
will reap with songs of joy.
  Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, *
will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves.
Psalm 127 Nisi Dominus
  Unless the LORD builds the house, *
their labor is in vain who build it.
  Unless the LORD watches over the city, *
in vain the watchman keeps his vigil.
  It is in vain that you rise so early and go to bed so late; *
vain, too, to eat the bread of toil, for he gives to his beloved sleep.
  Children are a heritage from the LORD, *
and the fruit of the womb is a gift.
  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior *
are the children of one's youth.
  Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them! *
he shall not be put to shame when he contends with his enemies in the gate.



The Lessons

A reading from Matthew 9:1-8

And after getting into a boat he crossed the sea and came to his own town. And just then some people were carrying a paralyzed man lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven." Then some of the scribes said to themselves, "This man is blaspheming." But Jesus, perceiving their thoughts, said, "Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven,' or to say, 'Stand up and walk'? But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins"-- he then said to the paralytic-- "Stand up, take your bed and go to your home." And he stood up and went to his home. When the crowds saw it, they were filled with awe, and they glorified God, who had given such authority to human beings.

Here ends the Reading.

Piano    Parts

All who hunger, gather gladly;
holy manna is our bread.
Come from wilderness and wandering.
Here, in truth, we will be fed.
You that yearn for days of fullness,
all around us is our food.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, never strangers;
seeker, be a welcome guest.
Come from restlessness and roaming.
Here, in joy, we keep the feast.
We that once were lost and scattered
in communion’s love have stood.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

All who hunger, sing together;
Jesus Christ is living bread.
Come from loneliness and longing.
Here, in peace, we have been led.
Blest are those who from this table
live their lives in gratitude.
Taste and see the grace eternal.
Taste and see that God is good.

Heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me
Now safe am I.

Love lifted even me,
Love lifted even me,
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me.
2 All my heart to Him I give,
Ever to Him I’ll cling,
In His blessed presence live,
Ever His praises sing.
Love so mighty and so true
Merits my soul’s best songs;
Faithful, loving service, too,
To Him belongs. [Refrain]
3 Souls in danger, look above,
Jesus completely saves;
He will lift you by His love
Out of the angry waves.

Billows His will obey;
He your savior wants to be,
Be saved today. [Refrain]

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed
Psalm 107: Part I Confitemini Domino
  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, *
and his mercy endures for ever.
  Let all those whom the LORD has redeemed proclaim *
that he redeemed them from the hand of the foe.
  He gathered them out of the lands; *
from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
  Some wandered in desert wastes; *
they found no way to a city where they might dwell.
  They were hungry and thirsty; *
their spirits languished within them.
  Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, *
and he delivered them from their distress.
  He put their feet on a straight path *
to go to a city where they might dwell.
  Let them give thanks to the LORD for his mercy *
and the wonders he does for his children.
  For he satisfies the thirsty *
and fills the hungry with good things.
10   Some sat in darkness and deep gloom, *
bound fast in misery and iron;
11   Because they rebelled against the words of God *
and despised the counsel of the Most High.
12   So he humbled their spirits with hard labor; *
they stumbled, and there was none to help.
13   Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, *
and he delivered them from their distress.
14   He led them out of darkness and deep gloom *
and broke their bonds asunder.
15   Let them give thanks to the LORD for his mercy *
and the wonders he does for his children.
16   For he shatters the doors of bronze *
and breaks in two the iron bars.
17   Some were fools and took to rebellious ways; *
they were afflicted because of their sins.
18   They abhorred all manner of food *
and drew near to death's door.
19   Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, *
and he delivered them from their distress.
20   He sent forth his word and healed them *
and saved them from the grave.
21   Let them give thanks to the LORD for his mercy *
and the wonders he does for his children.
22   Let them offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and tell of his acts with shouts of joy.
23   Some went down to the sea in ships *
and plied their trade in deep waters;
24   They beheld the works of the LORD *
and his wonders in the deep.
25   Then he spoke, and a stormy wind arose, *
which tossed high the waves of the sea.
26   They mounted up to the heavens and fell back to the depths; *
their hearts melted because of their peril.
27   They reeled and staggered like drunkards *
and were at their wits' end.
28   Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, *
and he delivered them from their distress.
29   He stilled the storm to a whisper *
and quieted the waves of the sea.
30   Then were they glad because of the calm, *
and he brought them to the harbor they were bound for.
31   Let them give thanks to the LORD for his mercy *
and the wonders he does for his children.
32   Let them exalt him in the congregation of the people *
and praise him in the council of the elders.


Glory be to the Father



The Lessons

A reading from Matthew 8:1-17

When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, "Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean." He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, "I do choose. Be made clean!" Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. Then Jesus said to him, "See that you say nothing to anyone; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them." 

When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress." And he said to him, "I will come and cure him." The centurion answered, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and the slave does it." 

When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, "Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the heirs of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; let it be done for you according to your faith." And the servant was healed in that hour. 

When Jesus entered Peter's house, he saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever; he touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she got up and began to serve him. That evening they brought to him many who were possessed with demons; and he cast out the spirits with a word, and cured all who were sick. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah, "He took our infirmities and bore our diseases."

Here ends the Reading.
