Evening Prayer - Thursday October 29 2020

VB0003 Sweet Hour of Prayer


Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father's throne
Make all my wants and wishes known.
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief,
And oft escaped the tempter's snare
By your return, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
Your wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless.
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His word, and trust His grace,
I'll cast on Him my every care,
and wait for you, sweet hour of prayer!

Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer!
May I tour consolation share
Till from Mount Pisgah's lofty height
I view my home and take my flight;
This robe of flesh I'll drop, and rise
To seize the ever lasting prize;
And shout, while passing through the air,
Farewell, farewell, sweet hour of prayer.


The Invitatory and Psalter

V: O God, make speed | to save | us.
R: O Lord, | make haste | to help | us.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.




O Gracious Light Phos hilaron


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 103


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Praise the Lord, my soul!
With all that is with-in me, praise his ho-ly name!
Praise the Lord, my soul!
Do not for-get all his kind deeds!

He is the one who for-gives all your sins,
who heals all your dis-eas-es,
who de-liv-ers your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with his loy-al love and com-pas-sion,

who sat-is-fies your life with good things,
so your youth is re-newed like an ea-gle.
The Lord does what is fair,
and ex-e-cutes jus-tice for all the op-pressed.

The Lord re-vealed his faith-ful acts to Mo-ses,
his deeds to the Is-rael-ites.
The Lord is com-pas-sion-ate and mer-ci-ful;
he is pa-tient and dem-on-strates great loy-al love.

He does not al-ways ac-cuse,
and does not stay an-gry.
He does not deal with us as our sins de-serve;
he does not re-pay us as our mis-deeds de-serve.

For as the skies are high a-bove the earth,
so his loy-al love tow-ers o-ver his faith-ful fol-low-ers.
As far as the east-ern ho-ri-zon is from the west,
so he re-moves the guilt of our re-bel-lious ac-tions from us.

As a fath-er has com-pas-sion on his chil-dren,
so the Lord has com-pas-sion on his faith-ful fol-low-ers.
For he knows what we are made of;
he real-iz-es we are made of clay.

A per-son's life is like grass.
Like a flow-er in the field it flour-ish-es,
but when the hot wind blows by, it dis-ap-pears,
and one can no long-er spot where it once grew.

But the Lord con-tin-ual-ly shows loy-al love
to his faith-ful fol-low-ers,
and is faith-ful to their de-scend-ants,
to those who keep his cov-e-nant,

who are care-ful to o-bey his com-mands.
The Lord has es-tab-lished his throne in heav-en;
his king-dom ex-tends o-ver eve-ry-thing.
Praise the Lord, you an-gels of his,

you pow-er-ful war-ri-ors
who car-ry out his de-crees
and o-bey his or-ders!
Praise the Lord, all you war-ri-ors of his,

You serv-ants of his who car-ry out his de-sires!
Praise the Lord, all that he has made,
in all the re-gions of his king-dom!
Praise the Lord, my soul!

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Readings



A reading from Revelation 12:7-17


Then war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, so there was no longer any place left in heaven for him and his angels. So that huge dragon—the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world—was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying,
“The salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
and the ruling authority of his Christ, have now come,
because the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
the one who accuses them day and night before our God,
has been thrown down.


But they overcame him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony,
and they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.


Therefore you heavens rejoice, and all who reside in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea
because the devil has come down to you!
He is filled with terrible anger,
for he knows that he only has a little time!”

Now when the dragon realized that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. But the woman was given the two wings of a giant eagle so that she could fly out into the wilderness, to the place God prepared for her, where she is taken care of—away from the presence of the serpent—for a time, times, and half a time. Then the serpent spouted water like a river out of his mouth after the woman in an attempt to sweep her away by a flood, but the earth came to her rescue; the ground opened up and swallowed the river that the dragon had spewed from his mouth. So the dragon became enraged at the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, those who keep God’s commandments and hold to the testimony about Jesus. (12:18) And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - Song of Moses


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




I will sing to the Lord,
for he is loft-and up-lift-ed;
the horse and its rid-er
has he hurled into the sea.

The Lord is my strength and my ref-uge;
the Lord has be-come my Sav-ior.
This is my God and I will praise him,
the God of my peo-ple and will ex-alt him.

The Lord is a might-y war-ri-or;
Yah-weh is his ho-ly Name.
The char-i-ots of Phar-oah and his ar-my
has he hurled into the sea;

The fin-est of those who bear ar-mor
have been drowned in the Red Sea.
The fa-thom-less deep has o-ver-whelmed them;
they sank into the depths like stone.

Your right hand, Lord,
is glo-ri-ous and might-y;
your right hand, Lord,
has o-ver-thrown the en-e-my.

Who can be com-pared with you,
Lord, a-mong the gods?
who is like you,
glo-ri-ous in ho-li-ness,

Awe-some in re-nown,
and work-er of won-ders?
You stretched forth your right hand;
the earth swal-lowed them up.

With your con-stant love
you led the peo-ple you re-deemed;
with your might you brought them in safe-ty
to your ho-ly dwell-ing place.

You will bring them in and plant them
on the mount of your pos-ses-sion,
In the rest-ing place
you have made for your-self, Lord,

In the sanc-tu-ar-y, Lord,
that your hand has es-tab-lished.
The Lord shall reign
for ev-er and for ev-er. A-men!

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


A reading from Luke 11:53-12:12


When he went out from there, the experts in the law and the Pharisees began to oppose him bitterly and to ask him hostile questions about many things, plotting against him to catch him in something he might say.

Meanwhile, when many thousands of the crowd had gathered so that they were trampling on one another, Jesus began to speak first to his disciples, “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. Nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, and nothing is secret that will not be made known. So then whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms will be proclaimed from the housetops.

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more they can do. But I will warn you whom you should fear: Fear the one who, after the killing, has authority to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. In fact, even the hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

“I tell you, whoever acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before God’s angels. But the one who denies me before men will be denied before God’s angels. And everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the person who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. But when they bring you before the synagogues, the rulers, and the authorities, do not worry about how you should make your defense or what you should say, for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you must say.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

All you na-tions, clap your hands!
Shout out to God in cel-e-bra-tion!
For the Lord Most High is awe-in-spir-ing;
he is the great king who rules the whole earth!

He sub-dued na-tions be-neath us

God has a-scend-ed his throne a-mid loud shouts;
the Lord has a-scend-ed a-mid the blar-ing of rams horns.
Sing to God! Sing!
Sing to God our king! Sing!

For God is king of the whole earth!
Sing well-writ-ten song!

The Lord is great and cer-tain-ly wor-thy of praise
in the cit-y of our God, his ho-ly hill.
It is loft-y and pleas-ing to look at,
a source of joy to the whole earth.

Mount Zi-on re-sem-bles the peaks of Za-phon;
it is the cit-of the great king.
God is in its for-tress;
he re-veals him-self as its de-fend-er.

For look, the kings as-sem-ble;
they ad-vance to-geth-er.
As soon as they see, they are shocked;
they are ter-ri-fied, they quick-ly re-treat.

Look at them shake un-con-trol-la-bly,
like a wom-an writh-ing in child-birth.
With an east wind you shat-ter the large ship.
We heard a-bout God's might-deeds,

Now we have seen them,
in the cit-y of the Lord of Heav-en’s Ar-my,
in the cit-y of our God.
God makes it per-ma-nent-ly se-cure.

We re-flect on your loy-al love, O God, with-in your tem-ple.
The praise you re-ceive as far a-way as the ends of the earth
is wor-thy of your rep-u-ta-tion, O God. You ex-e-cute jus-tice!
Mount Zi-on re-joic-es; the towns of Ju-dah are hap-py,

be-cause of your acts of judg-ment.
Walk a-round Zi-on! En-cir-cle it!
Count its tow-ers!
Con-sid-er its de-fense!

Walk through its for-tress,
so you can tell the next gen-er-a-tion a-bout it!
For God, our God, is our de-fend-er for-ev-er!
It is the Lord who guides us!

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Readings



A reading from Revelation 11:14-19


The second woe has come and gone; the third is coming quickly.

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying:
“The kingdom of the world
has become the kingdom of our Lord
and of his Christ,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”

Then the twenty-four elders who are seated on their thrones before God threw themselves down with their faces to the ground and worshiped God with these words:
“We give you thanks, Lord God, the All-Powerful,
the one who is and who was,
because you have taken your great power
and begun to reign.


The nations were enraged,
but your wrath has come,
and the time has come for the dead to be judged,
and the time has come to give to your servants,
the prophets, their reward,
as well as to the saints
and to those who revere your name, both small and great,
and the time has come to destroy those who destroy the earth.”

Then the temple of God in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was visible within his temple. And there were flashes of lightning, roaring, crashes of thunder, an earthquake, and a great hailstorm.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Splen-dor and ho-nor and king-ly pow-er

a king-dom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on the throne,

Be wor-ship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,

A reading from Luke 11:27-36


As he said these things, a woman in the crowd spoke out to him, “Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts at which you nursed!” But he replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it!”

As the crowds were increasing, Jesus began to say, “This generation is a wicked generation; it looks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so the Son of Man will be a sign to this generation. The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the people of this generation and condemn them, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon—and now, something greater than Solomon is here! The people of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented when Jonah preached to them—and now, something greater than Jonah is here!

“No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a hidden place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that those who come in can see the light. Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is diseased, your body is full of darkness. Therefore see to it that the light in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, with no part in the dark, it will be as full of light as when the light of a lamp shines on you.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glo-ry of the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For be-hold, dark-ness co-vers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But o-ver you the Lord will rise,
and his glo-ry will ap-pear up-on you.
Na-tions will stream to your light,

Your gates will al-ways be o-pen;
by day or night they will nev-er be shut.
They will call you, The Cit-y of the Lord,
The Zi-on of the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will no more be heard in your land,
ru-in or de-struc-tion with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your wall, 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 bright-ness of the moon.
The Lord will be your ev-er-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Prayers



Tuesday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.




Tuesday - Our Father

The Lord be with you.
And al-so with you. A-men.
Our Fath-er in heav-en,
hal-low-ed be your Name.

Your king-dom come,
your will be done, on earth as in heav-en.
Give us to-day our dai-ly bread.
For-give us our sins as we for-give those who sin a-gainst us.

Save us from the time of tri-al,
and de-liv-er us from e-vil.
For the king-dom, the pow-er, and the glo-ry are yours,
now and for ev-er. A-men.

A Prayer of Saint Chrysostom

Al-might-God,
you have giv-en us grace at this time
with one ac-cord
to make our com-mon sup-pli-ca-tion to you;

and you have prom-ised
through your well-be-lov-ed Son
that when two or three are ga-thered to-geth-er in his Name
you will be in the midst of them:

Ful-fill now, O Lord, our de-sires and pe-ti-tions
as may be best for us;
grant-ing us in this world knowl-edge of your truth,
and in the age to come life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
