Evening Prayer
Psalter, Friday Week IV

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

Father we thank Thee who has planted
Thy holy name within our hearts.
Knowledge and faith and life immortal
Jesus The Son to us imparts.
Thou, Lord, didst make all for Thy pleasure,
Didst give man food for all his days,
Giving in Christ the bread eternal;
Thine is the power, be Thine the praise.

Watch o'er Thy Church, O Lord, in mercy,
Save it from evil, guard it still,
Perfect it in Thy love, unite it,
Cleansed and conformed unto Thy will.
As grain, once scattered on the hillsides,
Was in the broken bread made one,
So from all lands Thy Church be gathered
Into Thy kingdom by Thy Son.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: Day after day I will bless you, Lord; I will tell of your marvelous deeds.

Psalm 145
Praise of God's majesty
Lord, you are the just one, who was and who is. (Revelation 16:5)


                   I
I will give you glory, O God my king,
I will bless your name for ever.

I will bless you day after day
and praise your name for ever.
The Lord is great, highly to be praised,
his greatness cannot be measured.

Age to age shall proclaim your works,
shall declare your mighty deeds,
shall speak of your splendor and glory,
tell the tale of your wonderful works.
They will speak of your terrible deeds,
recount your greatness and might.
They will recall your abundant goodness;
age to age shall ring out your justice.

The Lord is kind and full of compassion,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
How good is the Lord to all,
compassionate to all his creatures.

All your creatures shall thank you, O Lord,
and your friends shall repeat their blessing.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign
and declare your might, O God,

to make known to all your mighty deeds
and the glorious splendor of your reign.
Yours is an everlasting kingdom;
your rule lasts from age to age. Glory...

Antiphon 1 Day after day I will bless you, Lord; I will tell of your marvelous deeds.


Antiphon 2 To you alone, Lord, we look with confidence; you are ever close to those who call upon you.

                    II
The Lord is faithful in all his words
and loving in all his deeds.
The Lord supports all who fall
and raises up all who are bowed down.

The eyes of all creatures look to you
and you give them their food in due time.
You open wide your hand,
grant the desires of all who live.

The Lord is just in all his ways
and loving in all his deeds.
He is close to all who call him,
who call on him from their hearts.

He grants the desires of those who fear him,
he hears their cry and he saves them.
The Lord protects all who love him ;
the wicked he will utterly destroy.

Let me speak the praise of the Lord,
let all peoples bless his holy name
for ever, for ages unending. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord, be near to all who call upon you in truth and increase the dedication of those who revere you. Hear their prayers and save them that they may always love you and praise your holy name.

Antiphon 2 To you alone, Lord, we look with confidence; you are ever close to those who call upon you.


Antiphon 3 King of all the ages, your ways are perfect and true.

Canticle  -  Revelation 15:3-4
Hymn of adoration

Mighty and wonderful are your works,
Lord God Almighty!
Righteous and true are your ways,
O King of the nations!

Who would dare refuse you honor,
or the glory due your name, O Lord?

Since you alone are holy,
all nations shall come
and worship in your presence.
Your mighty deeds are clearly seen. Glory...

Antiphon 3 King of all the ages, your ways are perfect and true.


READING      1 Romans 8:1-2,10-11
There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has freed you from the law of sin and death. If Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is alive because of righteousness. If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that dwells in you.


RESPONSORY
Christ died for our sins to make of us an offering to God.
 - Christ died for our sins to make of us an offering to God.
He died to this world of sin and rose in the power of the Spirit.
 - to make of us an offering to God.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Christ died for our sins to make of us an offering to God.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: Remember your mercy, Lord, the promise of mercy you made to our fathers.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us pray to Christ, the source of hope for all who know his name:

                               Lord have mercy

Christ, our frail humanity is prone to fall,
 - strengthen us through your help.

Left to itself, our nature is inclined to sin,
 - let your love always restore it to grace.

Lord, sin offends you, repentance pleases you,
 - do not punish us in your wrath even when we have sinned.

You forgave the penitent woman and placed the wandering sheep on your shoulders,
 - do not deprive us of your mercy.

By your death on the cross, you opened the gates of heaven,
 - admit into your kingdom all who hoped in you.


Our Father...


PRAYER
God our Father,
you brought salvation to all mankind
through the suffering of Christ your Son.
May your people strive to offer themselves to you as a living sacrifice
and be filled with the abundance of your love.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives with you and 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.
