WEEK III - TUESDAY

Evening Prayer

God, come to my assistance.
 - Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
 -  as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever.

Amen. (Alleluia.)


HYMN

Behold a Rose of Judah
O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

or:

-
The setting sun now dies away,
and darkness comes at close of day;
your brightest beams, dear Lord, impart,
and let them shine within our heart.

We praise your name with joy this night.
Please watch and guide us till the light;
Joining the music of the blest,
Oh lord, we sing ourselves to rest

To God the Father, God the Son,
And Holy Spirit, Three in One,
Trinity blest, whom we adore,
Be praise and glory evermore.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: The Lord will come from his holy place to save people.


    Psalm 125
    The Lord, guardian of his people
    Peace to God's true Israel (Galatians 6:16)

Those who put their trust in the Lord
are like Mount Zion, that cannot be shaken,
that stands for ever.

Jerusalem! The mountains surround her,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and for ever.

For the scepter of the wicked shall not rest
over the land of the just
for fear that the hands of the just
should turn to evil.

Do good, Lord, to those who are good,
to the upright of heart;
but the crooked and those who do evil,
drive them away!

On Israel, peace! Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Surround your people, Lord, within the safety of your Church, which you preserve on its rock foundation. Do not let us stretch out our hands to evil deeds, nor be destroyed by the insidious snares of the enemy, but bring us to share the lot of the saints in light.

Antiphon 1 The Lord will come from his holy place to save people.


Antiphon 2 Zion is our mighty citadel, our saving Lord its wall and its defense; throw open the gates, for our God is here among us.


    Psalm 131
    Childlike trust in God

    Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. (Matthew 11:29)

O Lord, my heart is not proud
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
nor marvels beyond me.

Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
A weaned child on its mother's breast,
even so is my soul.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
both now and forever. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, gentle and humble of heart, you declared that whoever receives a little child in your name receives you, and you promised your kingdom to those who are like children. Never let pride reign in our hearts, but may the Father's compassion reward and embrace all who willingly bear your gentle yoke.

Antiphon 2 Zion is our mighty citadel, our saving Lord its wall and its defense; throw open the gates, for our God is here among us.


Antiphon 3 Lord, make known your will throughout the earth; proclaim your salvation to every nation.


    Canticle  -  Revelation 4:11;5-9,10,12
    Redemption hymn

    Worthy are you, Lord our God,
    to receive glory and honor and power,

    For you created all things;
    by your will they came to be and were created.

    Worthy are you, O Lord,
    to receive the scroll and to break open its seals.

    For you were slain;
    with your blood you purchased for God
    those from every tribe and tongue,
    of every people and nation.

    You made them a kingdom
    and priests to serve our God,
    and they shall reign on earth.

    Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
    to receive power and riches,
    wisdom and strength,
    honor and glory and blessing. Glory...

Antiphon 3 Lord, make known your will throughout the earth; proclaim your salvation to every nation.
