Evening Prayer II

God, come to my assistance.

Amen. Alleluia.


HYMN

Come, Thou almighty King,
Help us Thy Name to sing,
help us to praise!
Father all glorious,
o’er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,
Ancient of Days!

Come, Thou incarnate Word,
Gird on Thy mighty sword,
our prayer attend!
Come, and Thy people bless,
and give Thy Word success,
Spirit of holiness,
on us descend!

Come, holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear
in this glad hour.
Thou Who almighty art,
now rule in every heart,
And ne’er from us depart,
Spirit of power!

To Thee, great One in Three,
Eternal praises be,
hence, evermore.
Thy sovereign majesty
may we in glory see,
And to eternity
love and adore!

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: O Trinity most high, eternal and true: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Psalm 110:1-5,7

The Lord's revelation to my Master:
"Sit on my right:
your foes I will put beneath your feet."
The Lord will wield from Zion
your scepter of power:
rule in the midst of all your foes.

A prince from the day of your birth
on the holy mountains;
from the womb before the dawn I begot you.

The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
"You are a priest for ever,
a priest like Melchizedeck of old."

The Master standing at your right hand
will shatter kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall drink from the stream by the wayside
and therefore he shall lift up his head. Glory...

Antiphon 1 O Trinity most high, eternal and true: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Antiphon 2 Save us, set us free and give us life, O blessed Trinity.


Psalm 114

When Israel came forth from Egypt,
Jacob's sons from an alien people
Judah became the Lord's temple,
Israel became his kingdom.

The sea fled at the sight:
the Jordan turned back on its course,
the mountains leapt like rams
and the hills like yearling sheep.

Why was it, sea, that you fled,
that you turned back, Jordan, on your course?
Mountains, that you leapt like rams;
hills, like yearling sheep?

Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,
in the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turns the rock into a pool
and flint into a spring of water. Glory...

Antiphon 2 Save us, set us free and give us life, O blessed Trinity.


Antiphon 3 Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, the God who is, who was, and who is to come.

READING      Ephesians 4:3-6
Strive to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace: one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.


RESPONSORY

To God alone be honor and glory.
 - Let us praise God for ever.

MAGNIFICAT
(Canticle of Mary)
With our whole heart and voice we acclaim you, O God; we offer you our praise and worship, unbegotten Father, only-begotten Son, Holy Spirit, constant friend and guide; most holy and undivided Trinity, to you be glory for ever.


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.
