HYMN

Lord, whose love in humble service
bore the weight of human need,
who upon the cross forsaken,
worked your mercy’s perfect deed:
we, your servants, bring the worship
not of voice alone, but heart;
consecrating to your purpose
every gift which you impart.

As we worship, grant us vision
till your love’s revealing light
in its height and depth and greatness
dawns upon our human sight;
making known the needs and burdens
your compassion bids us bear,
stirring us to ardent service,
your abundant life to share.

Called from worship into service
forth in your great name we go,
to the child, the youth, the aged
love in living deeds to show.  
Hope and health, good will and comfort,
council, aid and peace we give,
that your children Lord in freedom
may your mercy know and live.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: You alone I have grieved by my sin; have pity on me, O Lord.


Psalm 51
O God, have mercy on me
Your inmost being must be renewed, and you must put on the new man. (Ephesians 4:23-24)

Have mercy on me, God, in your kindness.
In your compassion blot out my offense.
O wash me more and more from my guilt
and cleanse me from my sin.

My offenses truly I know them;
my sin is always before me
Against you, you alone, have I sinned;
what is evil in your sight I have done.

That you may be justified when you give sentence
and be without reproach when you judge,
O see, in guilt I was born,
a sinner was I conceived.

Indeed you love truth in the heart;
then in the secret of my heart teach me wisdom.
O purify me, then I shall be clean;
O wash me, I shall be whiter than snow.

Make me hear rejoicing and gladness,
that the bones you have crushed may revive.
From my sins turn away your face
and blot out all my guilt.

A pure heart create for me, O God,
put a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from your presence,
nor deprive me of your holy spirit.

Give me again the joy of your help;
with a spirit of fervor sustain me,
that I may teach transgressors your ways
and sinners may return to you.

O rescue me, God, my helper,
and my tongue shall ring out your goodness.
O Lord, open my lips
and my mouth shall declare your praise.

For in sacrifice you take no delight,
burnt offering from me you would refuse,
my sacrifice, a contrite spirit,
a humbled, contrite heart you will not spurn.

In your goodness, show favor to Zion:
rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
Then you will be pleased with lawful sacrifice,
holocausts offered on your altar. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Father, he who knew no sin was made sin for us, to save us and restore us to your friendship. Look upon our contrite heart and afflicted spirit and heal our troubled conscience, so that in the joy and strength of the Holy Spirit we may proclaim your praise and glory before all the nations.

Antiphon 1: You alone I have grieved by my sin; have pity on me, O Lord.


Antiphon 2: Truly we know our offenses, Lord, for we have sinned against you.


Canticle  -  Jeremiah 14:17-21
The lament of the people in war and famine
The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent and believe the Good News. (Mark 1:15)


Let my eyes stream with tears
day and night, without rest,
Over the great destruction which overwhelms
the virgin daughter of my people,
over her incurable wound.

If I walk out into the field,
look! those slain by the sword;
If I enter the city,
look! those consumed by hunger.
Even the prophet and the priest forage
in a land they know not.

Have you cast Judah off completely?
Is Zion loathsome to you?
Why have you struck us a blow that cannot be healed?

We wait for peace, to no avail;
for a time of healing, but terror comes instead.
We recognize, O Lord, our wickedness,
the guilt of our fathers;
that we have sinned against you.

For your name's sake spurn us not,
disgrace not the throne of your glory;
remember your covenant with us, and break it not. Glory...

Antiphon 2: Truly we know our offenses, Lord, for we have sinned against you.


Antiphon 3: The Lord is God; we are his people, the flock he shepherds.


Psalm 100
The joyful song of those entering God's temple
The Lord calls his ransomed people to sing songs of victory. (Saint Athanasius)

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us, we belong to him,
we are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Go within his gates, giving thanks.
Enter his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: God, devoted to us as a Father, you created us as a sign of your power and elected us your people to show your goodness, accept the thanks your children offer that all people may enter your courts praising you in song.

Antiphon 3 The Lord is God; we are his people, the flock he shepherds.


READING     2 Corinthians 12:7b-10
As to the extraordinary revelations, that I might not become too conceited,  a thorn in the flesh was given to me, an angel of Satan, to beat me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times  I begged the Lord about this, that it might leave me, but he said to me,  "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.

Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.  


RESPONSORY
At daybreak, be merciful to me.
  - At daybreak, be merciful to me.
Make known to me the path that I must walk.
- Be merciful to me.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - At daybreak, be merciful to me.


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: The Lord has come to his people and set them free.


INTERCESSIONS
Raising our eyes to Christ, who was born and died and rose again for his people, let us cry out:

            Save those you have redeemed by your blood, Lord.

Blessed are you, Jesus, redeemer of mankind; you did not hesitate to undergo your passion and death,
- to redeem us by your precious blood.

You promised that you would provide living water, the fountain of eternal life,
- pour forth your Spirit upon all people.

You send disciples to preach the Gospel to all nations,
- help them to extend the victory of your cross.

You have given the sick and the suffering a share in your cross,
- give them patience and strength.


Our Father...


PRAYER
Father all-powerful,
let your radiance dawn in our lives,
that we may walk in the light of your law
with you as our leader.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
once God, for ever and ever.


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