TRINITY SUNDAY

Evening Prayer I

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

All hail, adored Trinity!
all hail, eternal Unity!
O God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, ever One.

Three Persons praise we evermore,
our only God our hearts adore;
in thy sweet mercy ever kind
may we our sure protection find.

O Trinity! O Unity!
Be present as we worship thee;
and with the songs that angels sing
unite the hymns of praise we bring.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: Glory to you, O Trinity, one God in three equal Persons, as in the beginning, so now and for ever.

Psalm 113


Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
May the name of the Lord be blessed
both now and for evermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting
praised be the name of the Lord!

High above all nations is the Lord,
above the heavens his glory.
Who is like the Lord, our God,
who has risen on high to his throne
yet stoops from the heights to look down,
to look down upon heaven and earth?

From the dust he lifts up the lowly,
from the dungheap he raises the poor
to set them in the company of princes,
yes, with the princes of his people.
To the childless wife he gives a home
and gladdens her heart with children. Glory...

Antiphon 1 Glory to you, O Trinity, one God in three equal Persons, as in the beginning, so now and for ever.


Antiphon 2 Praise to the Holy Trinity and undivided Unity. Let us praise God for he has shown us his mercy.

Psalm 147:12-20


O praise the Lord, Jerusalem!
Zion praise your God!

He has strengthened the bars of your gates
he has blessed the children within you.
He established peace on your borders,
he feeds you with finest wheat.

He sends out his word to the earth
and swiftly runs his command.
He showers down snow white as wool,
he scatters hoar-frost like ashes.

He hurls down hailstones like crumbs.
The waters are frozen at his touch;
he sends forth his word and it melts them:
at the breath of his mouth the waters flow.

He makes his word known to Jacob,
to Israel his laws and decrees.
He has not dealt thus with other nations;
he has not taught them his decrees.  Glory...

Antiphon 2 Praise to the Holy Trinity and undivided Unity. Let us praise God for he has shown us his mercy.


Antiphon 3 Glory and honor to God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; glory and praise to him for endless ages.

Canticle  -  Ephesians 1:3-10

Praised be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has bestowed on us in Christ
every spiritual blessing in the heavens.

God chose us in him
before the world began
to be holy
and blameless in his sight.

He predestined us
to be his adopted sons through Jesus Christ,
such was his will and pleasure,
that all might praise the glorious favor
he has bestowed on us in his beloved.

In him and through his blood, we have been redeemed,
and our sins forgiven,
so immeasurably generous
is God's favor to us.

God has given us the wisdom
to understand fully the mystery,
the plan he was pleased
to decree in Christ.

A plan to be carried out
in Christ, in the fullness of time,
to bring all things into one in him,
in the heavens and on earth. Glory...

Antiphon 3 Glory and honor to God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; glory and praise to him for endless ages.


READING     Romans 11:33-36
How deep are the riches and the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How inscrutable his judgments, how unsearchable his ways! For "who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? Who has given him anything so as to deserve return?" For from him and through him and for him all things are. To him be glory forever. Amen.


RESPONSORY
Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.
 - Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.
To God alone be honor and glory.
 - Let us praise God for ever.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: We give you thanks, O God: we give you thanks, Trinity one and true, Divinity one and most high, Unity one and holy.


INTERCESSIONS
The Father through the Holy Spirit has given life to the humanity of Christ his Son, and has made him a source of life for us. Let us raise our voices in praise to the triune God:

                            Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Father, almighty and eternal God, send the Holy Spirit upon your Church in your Son’s name,
 - preserve it in the unity of charity and in the fullness of truth.   

Send laborers into your harvest, Lord, to teach the truth to all nations,
 - and to baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Father, send help to all who suffer persecution in the name of your Son
 - for he promised to send the Spirit of Truth to answer for them.   

Father omnipotent, may all men and women come to acknowledge you, together with the Word and the Holy Spirit, as the one true God,
 - may they believe in you, hope in you, and love you.   

Father of all the living, bring the dead to share in your glory,
 - the glory of your eternal reign with your Son and the Holy Spirit.


Our Father...


COLLECT
God our Father, who by sending into the world
the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification
made known to the human race your wondrous mystery,
grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith,
we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory
and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
