Evening Prayer I
Psalter, Sunday 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

At the Name of Jesus, every knee shall bow,
Every tongue confess him King of glory now;
’Tis the Father’s pleasure we should call him Lord,
Who from the beginning was the mighty Word.

Humbled for a season, to receive a name
From the lips of sinners unto whom he came,
Faithfully he bore it, spotless to the last,
Brought it back victorious when from death he passed.

In your hearts enthrone him; there let him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true;
Crown him as your Captain in temptation’s hour;
Let his will enfold you in its light and power

Brothers, this Lord Jesus shall return again,
With His Father’s glory, with his angel train;
For all wreaths of empire meet upon his brow,
And our hearts confess him King of glory now.

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Psalm 122

Holy city Jerusalem
You have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22)

I rejoiced when I heard them say:
Let us go to God's house.
And now our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city
strongly compact.
It is there that the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord.

For Israel's law it is,
there to praise the Lord's name.
There were set the thrones of judgment
of the house of David.

For the peace of Jerusalem pray:
Peace be to your homes!

For love of my brethren and friends
I say: Peace upon you.
For love of the house of the Lord
I will ask for your good. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: When you rose from the dead, Lord Jesus, you formed the Church into your new body, and made of it the new Jerusalem, united in your Spirit. Give us peace in our day. Make all nations come to your Church to share in the gifts in fellowship, that they may render you thanks without end and come to your eternal city.

Antiphon 1 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.


Antiphon 2 From the morning watch until night, I have waited trustingly for the Lord.

Psalm 130
A cry from the depths

He himself will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord,
Lord, hear my voice!
O let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleading.

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,
Lord, who would survive?
But with you is found forgiveness:
for this we revere you.

My soul is waiting for the Lord.
I count on his word.
My soul is longing for the Lord
more than watchman for daybreak.
(Let the watchman count on daybreak
and Israel on the Lord.)

Because with the Lord there is mercy
and fullness of redemption,
Israel indeed he will redeem
from all its iniquity. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, uphold those who hope in you and give us your counsel, so that we may know the joy of your resurrection and deserve to be among the saints at your right hand.

Antiphon 2 From the morning watch until night, I have waited trustingly for the Lord.


Antiphon 3 Let everything in heaven and on earth bend the knee at the name of Jesus.

Canticle  -  Philippians 2:6-11
Christ, God's holy servant

Though he was in the form of God,
Jesus did not deem equality with God
something to be grasped at.

Rather, he emptied himself
and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.

He was known to be of human estate
and it was thus that he humbled himself,
obediently accepting even death,
death on a cross!

Because of this,
God highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
above every other name,  

So that at Jesus' name
every knee must bend
in the heavens, on the earth,
and under the earth,
and every tongue proclaim
to the glory of God the Father:  
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!   Glory...

Antiphon 3 Let everything in heaven and on earth bend the knee at the name of Jesus.


READING     2 Peter 1:19-21
We possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Know this first of all, that there is no prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal interpretation, for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God.


RESPONSORY
From the rising of the sun to its setting, may the name of the Lord be praised.
 - From the rising of the sun to its setting, may the name of the Lord be praised.
His splendor reaches far beyond the heavens; -
 - may the name of the Lord be praised.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - From the rising of the sun to its setting, may the name of the Lord be praised.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: Jesus said to Peter: I do not tell you to forgive only seven times, but seventy times seven.


INTERCESSIONS
Everyone who waits for the Lord finds joy. Now we pray to him:

                     Look on us with favor, Lord, and hear us.

Faithful witness, first-born of the dead, you washed away our sins in your blood,
  -  make us always remember your wonderful works.

You called men to be heralds of your good news,
  -  make them strong and faithful messengers of your kingdom.

King of peace, send your Spirit on the leaders of the world,
  -  turn their eyes toward the poor and the suffering.

Protect and defend those who are discriminated against because of race, color, class, language or religion,
  -  that they may be accorded the rights and dignity which are theirs.

May all who died in your love share in your happiness,
  -  with Mary, our mother, and all your holy ones.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Look upon us, O God,
Creator and ruler of all things,
and, that we may feel the working of your mercy,
grant that we may serve you with all our heart.
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.
