God, come to my assistance.

HYMN

Day is done, but love unfailing
dwells ever here
Shadows fall, but hope, prevailing,
calms every fear.
Loving Father, none forsaking,
take our hearts of Love's own making
Watch our sleeping, guard our waking,
be always near.

Dusk descends, but light unending
shines through our night
You are with us, ever lending
new strength to sight
One in love, your truth confessing
one in hope of heaven's blessing
May we see, in love's possessing
love's endless light!

Eyes will close, but you unsleeping
watch by our side
Death may come, in love's safekeeping
still we abide
God of love, all evil quelling
sin forgiving, fear dispelling
Stay with us, our hearts indwelling
this eventide.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: You cannot serve both God and mammon.

Psalm 49
Emptiness of riches
It is difficult for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 19:23)

                I
Hear this, all you peoples,
give heed, all who dwell in the world,
men both high and low,
rich and poor alike!

My lips will speak words of wisdom.
My heart is full of insight.
I will turn my mind to a parable,
with the harp I will solve my problem.


Why should I fear in evil days
the malice of the foes who surround me,
men who trust in their wealth,
and boast of the vastness of their riches?

For no man buy his own ransom,
or pay a price to God for his life.
The ransom of his soul is beyond him.
He cannot buy life without end,
nor avoid coming to the grave.

He knows that wise men and fools must both perish
and must leave their wealth to others.
Their graves are their homes for ever,
their dwelling place from age to age,
though their names spread wide through the land.

In his riches, man lacks wisdom;
he is like the beasts that are destroyed. Glory...

Antiphon 1 You cannot serve both God and mammon.


Antiphon 2 Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, says the Lord.

                         II
This is the lot of those who trust in themselves,
who have others in their beck and call.
Like sheep they are driven to the grave,
where death shall be their shepherd
and the just shall become their rulers.

With the morning their outward show vanishes
and the grave becomes their home.
But God will ransom me from death
and take my soul to himself.

Then do not fear when a man grows rich,
when the glory of his house increases.
He takes nothing with him when he dies,
his glory does not follow him below.

Though he flattered himself while he lived:
Men will praise me for all my success,
yet he will go to join his fathers,
and will never see the light any more.

In his riches, man lacks wisdom;
he is like the beasts that are destroyed. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Make our mouths speak your wisdom. Lord Jesus. and help us to remember that you became man and redeemed us from death that we might merit the beauty of your light.

Antiphon 2 Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, says the Lord.


Antiphon 3 Adoration and glory belong by right to the Lamb that was slain.

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

O Lord our God, you are worthy
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you have created all things;
by your will they came to be and were made.

Worthy are you, O Lord
to receive the scroll and 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 praise. Glory...

Antiphon 3 Adoration and glory belong by right to the Lamb that was slain.


READING      Romans 3:21-26
But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, though testified to by the law and the prophets, the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction; all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. They are justified freely by his grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as an expiation, through faith, by his blood, to prove his righteousness because of the forgiveness of sins previously committed, through the forbearance of God - to prove his righteousness in the present time, that he might be righteous and justify the one who has faith in Jesus.


RESPONSORY
I shall know the fullness of joy, when I see your face, O Lord.
 - I shall know the fullness of joy, when I see your face, O Lord.
Fulfillment and endless peace in your presence,
 - when I see your face, O Lord.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - I shall know the fullness of joy, when I see your face, O Lord.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: Do great things for us, O Lord, for you are mighty, and holy is your name.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us praise Christ, the shepherd and guardian of our souls, who loves and protects his people. Placing our hope in him, we cry out:
        
                    Protect your people, Lord.

Eternal shepherd, protect our bishop N.
- and all the shepherds of your Church.

Look kindly on those who suffer persecution,
- hasten to free them from all adversity.

Have mercy on the needy, Lord.
- provide food for the hungry.

Enlighten all legislators,
- to enact laws in the spirit of wisdom and justice.

Come to the aid of our departed brothers and sisters, whom you have redeemed with your blood.
- make them worthy to enter your wedding feast.


Our Father...


PRAYER
Father,
yours is the morning
and yours is the evening.
let the Sun of Justice, Jesus Christ,
shine for ever in our hearts
and draw us to that light
where you live in radiant glory.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns 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.
