Evening Prayer - Monday September 27 2021



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

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 89:19-52


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Then you spoke through a vi-sion
to your faithful follow-ers and said:
I have placed a young he-ro over a warri-or;
I have raised up/a young man from/the peo-ple.

I have dis-covered Da-vid, my serv-ant.
With my holy oil I have a-nointed him as king.
My hand will sup-port him,
and my arm will strength-en him.

No ene-my will be able to ex-act trib-ute from him;
a vio-lent op-pressor will not be able to hu-mili-ate him.
I will crush his ene-mies be-fore him;
I will strike down those who hate him.

He will ex-peri-ence my faithful-ness and loyal love,
and by my name he will win vic-to-ry.
I will place his hand over the sea,
his right hand over the riv-ers.

He will call out to me,
You are my fath-er, my God,
and the pro-tec-tor who de-livers me.
I will ap-point him to be my first-born son,

the most ex-alt-ed of/the earth's kings.
I will al-ways ex-tend my loyal love to him,
and my cove-nant with him is se-cure.
I will give him an e-ternal dy-nas-ty,

and make his throne as en-during as the skies a-bove.
If his sons re-ject my law and dis-o-bey my regu-la-tions,
if they break my rules
and do not keep my com-mand-ments,

I will punish their re-bel-lion
by beating them with a club,
their sin by in-flicting them with bruis-es.
But I will not re-move my loyal love from him.

I will not be un-faithful to my prom-ise.
I will not break my cove-nant
or go back on what I prom-ised.
Once and/for all I have vowed by my own holi-ness,

I will never de-ceive Da-vid.
His dy-nasty will last for-ev-er.
His throne will en-dure be-fore me, like the sun,
it will re-main sta-ble, like the moon,

his throne will en-dure like the sky.
But you have spurned and re-jected him;
you are an-gry with your cho-sen king.
You have re-pudi-at-ed your cove-nant with your serv-ant;

You have thrown his crown to/the ground.
You have broken down all his walls;
you have made his strong-holds a heap of ru-ins.
All who pass by have robbed him;

he has be-come an object of dis-dain to his neigh-bors.
You have al-lowed his adver-sar-ies to be vic-to-ri-ous,
and all his ene-mies to re-joice.
You turn back his sword from/the adver-sar-y,

and have not sus-tained him in bat-tle.
You have brought to an end his splen-dor,
and have knocked his throne to/the ground.
You have cut short his youth,

You have covered him with shame.
How long, O Lord, will this last?
Will you re-main hidden for-ev-er?
Will your an-ger con-tinue to burn like fire?

Take note of my brief life span!
Why do you make all people so mor-tal?
No man can live on with-out ex-peri--enc-ing death,
or de-liv-er his life from/the power of She-ol.

Where are your earli-er faithful deeds, O Lord,
the ones per-formed in/ac-cord-ance with your re-lia-ble oath to Da-vid?
Take note, O Lord, of/the way your servants are taunt-ed,
and of how I must bear so many in-sults from peo-ple!

Your ene-mies, O Lord, hurl in-sults;
they in-sult your chosen king as they dog his foot-steps.
The Lord de-serves praise for-ever-more!
We a-gree! We a-gree! 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.


Readings



A reading from 1 Corinthians 7:25-31


With regard to the question about people who have never married, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my opinion as one shown mercy by the Lord to be trustworthy. Because of the impending crisis I think it best for you to remain as you are. The one bound to a wife should not seek divorce. The one released from a wife should not seek marriage. But if you marry, you have not sinned. And if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face difficult circumstances, and I am trying to spare you such problems. And I say this, brothers and sisters: The time is short. So then those who have wives should be as those who have none, those with tears like those not weeping, those who rejoice like those not rejoicing, those who buy like those without possessions, those who use the world as though they were not using it to the full. For the present shape of this world is passing away.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Monday - First Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Sure-ly, 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.

There-fore 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 Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly 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.


A reading from Matthew 6:25-34


“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are? And which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? Why do you worry about clothing? Think about how the flowers of the field grow; they do not work or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these! And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, won’t he clothe you even more, you people of little faith? So then, don’t worry saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For the unconverted pursue these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Lord, do not re-buke me in your an-ger!
Do not disci-pline me in your raging fu-ry!
Have mer-cy on me, Lord, for I am frail!
Heal me, Lord, for my bones are shak-ing!

I am ab-so-lute-ly terri-fied,
and you, Lord how long will this con-tin-ue?
Re-lent, Lord, res-cue me!
De-liver me be-cause of your faithful-ness!

For no one re-members you
who a-bides in/the realm of death,
In She-ol who gives you thanks?
I am ex-haust-ed as I groan;

All night long I drench my bed in tears;
my tears satu-rate the cush-ion be-neath me.
My eyes grow dim from suffer-ing;
they grow weak be-cause of all my ene-mies.

Turn back from me, all you who be-have wicked-ly,
for the Lord has heard the sound of my weep-ing!
The Lord has heard my ap-peal for mer-cy;
the Lord has ac-cept-ed my prayer.

They will be hu-mili-at-ed
and ab-so-lute-ly terri-fied!
All my ene-mies
will turn back and be sudden-ly hu-mili-at-ed!

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,

Readings



A reading from Matthew 8:18-27


Now when Jesus saw a large crowd around him, he gave orders to go to the other side of the lake. Then an expert in the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go. ” Jesus said to him, “Foxes have dens, and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head. ” Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father. ” But Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead. ”

As he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And a great storm developed on the sea so that the waves began to swamp the boat. But he was asleep. So they came and woke him up saying, “Lord, save us! We are about to die!” But he said to them, “Why are you cowardly, you people of little faith?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it was dead calm. And the men were amazed and said, “What sort of person is this? Even the winds and the sea obey him!”

Here ends the reading.

Psalms



Psalm 33


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




You godly ones, shout for joy be-cause of/the Lord!
It is ap-pro-priate for/the moral-ly up-right to offer him praise.
Give thanks to/the Lord with/the harp!
Sing to him to/the ac-com-pani-ment of a ten stringed in-stru-ment!

Sing to him a new song!
Play skillful-ly as you shout out your praises to him!
For the Lord's de-crees are just,
and every-thing he does is fair.

He pro-motes equi-ty and jus-tice;
the Lord's faithful-ness ex-tends through-out the earth.
By the Lord's de-cree the heavens were made;
and by/the breath of his mouth all the star-ry host.

He piles up the water of/the seas;
he puts the o-ceans in store-hous-es.
Let the whole earth fear the Lord!
Let all who live in/the world stand in awe of him!

For he spoke, and it came into ex-ist-ence,
he issued the de-cree, and it stood firm.
The Lord frus-trates the de-ci-sions of/the na-tion;
he nulli-fies the plans of/the peo-ples.

The Lord's de-ci-sions stand for-ev-er;
his plans a-bide through-out the ag-es.
How blessed is the na-tion whose God is the Lord,
the people whom he has chosen to be his special pos-ses-sion.

The Lord watches from heav-en;
and he sees all peo-ples.
From the place where he lives
he looks careful-ly at all the earth's in-habit-ants.

He is the one who forms eve-ry human heart,
and takes note of all their ac-tions.
No king is de-livered by his vast ar-my;
a warri-or is not saved by his great might.

A horse disap-points those who trust in/it for vic-to-ry;
de-spite its great strength, it can-not de-liv-er.
Look, the Lord takes notice of his loyal follow-ers,
those who wait for him to demon-strate his faithful-ness

By saving their lives from death
and sus-tain-ing them during times of fam-ine.
We wait for/the Lord;
he is our de-liver-er and shield.

For our hearts re-joice in him,
for we trust in his holy name.
May we ex-peri-ence your faithful-ness, O Lord,
for we wait up-on you.

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 1 Corinthians 10:1-13


For I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they were all drinking from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ. But God was not pleased with most of them, for they were cut down in the wilderness. These things happened as examples for us, so that we will not crave evil things as they did. So do not be idolaters, as some of them were. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” And let us not be immoral, as some of them were, and 23,000 died in a single day. And let us not put Christ to the test, as some of them did, and were destroyed by snakes. And do not complain, as some of them did, and were killed by the destroying angel. These things happened to them as examples and were written for our instruction, on whom the ends of the ages have come. So let the one who thinks he is standing be careful that he does not fall. No trial has overtaken you that is not faced by others. And God is faithful: He will not let you be tried beyond what you are able to bear, but with the trial will also provide a way out so that you may be able to endure it.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - Song of Simeon


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Lord, you now have set your ser-vant 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-light-en the na-tions,
and the glory of your people Is-ra-el.
Lord, you now have set your ser-vant 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 Matthew 8:18-27


Now when Jesus saw a large crowd around him, he gave orders to go to the other side of the lake. Then an expert in the law came to him and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go. ” Jesus said to him, “Foxes have dens, and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head. ” Another of the disciples said to him, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father. ” But Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead. ”

As he got into the boat, his disciples followed him. And a great storm developed on the sea so that the waves began to swamp the boat. But he was asleep. So they came and woke him up saying, “Lord, save us! We are about to die!” But he said to them, “Why are you cowardly, you people of little faith?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it was dead calm. And the men were amazed and said, “What sort of person is this? Even the winds and the sea obey him!”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

O rul-er of/the uni-verse, Lord God,
great deeds are they that you have done,
sur-pas-sing human under-stand-ing.
Your ways are ways of righteous-ness and truth,

O King of all the ag-es.
Who can fail to do you hom-age, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name?
for you only are the Ho-ly One.

All na-tions will draw near
and fall down be-fore you,
be-cause your just and holy works
have been re-vealed. Alle-lu-ia, 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.

He a-scended into heav-en,
and is seated at/the right hand of/the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the living and the dead.
We be-lieve in/the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the _ holy catho-lic Church,
