Evening Prayer
Psalter, Monday Week I

God, come to my assistance.

HYMN

Lord Jesus Christ, abide with us,
Now that the sun has run its course;
Let hope not be obscured by night,
But may faith's darkness be as light.

Lord Jesus Christ, grant us your peace.
And when the trials of earth shall cease.
Grant us the morning light of grace,
The radiant splendor of your face.

Immortal, Holy, Threefold Light.
Yours be the kingdom, pow'r, and might;
All glory be eternally
To you, life-giving Trinity!

PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: The Lord looks tenderly on those who are poor


Psalm 11
God is the unfailing support of the just
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for justice; they shall be satisfied (Matthew 5:6)

In the Lord I have taken my refuge.
How can you say to my soul:
"Fly like a bird to its mountain.

See the wicked one bracing his bow;
he is fixing his arrows on the string
to ambush the upright by stealth.
Foundations once destroyed,
what can the just do?"

The Lord is in his holy temple,
the Lord, whose throne is in heaven.
His eyes look down on the world;
his gaze tests the people of the earth.

The Lord tests the just and the wicked;
the lover of violence he hates.
He sends fire and brimstone on the wicked;
he sends a scorching wind as their lot.

The Lord is just and loves justice;
the upright will see his face. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord God, you search the hearts of all, both the good and the wicked. May those who are in danger for love of you, find security in you now, and, in the day of judgment, may they rejoice in seeing you face to face.

Antiphon 1 The Lord looks tenderly on those who are poor.


Antiphon 2 Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.


Psalm 15
Who is worthy to stand in God's presence?

You have come to Mt. Zion, to the city of the living God (Hebrews 12:22)

Lord, who shall be admitted to your tent
and dwell on your holy mountain?

The man who walks without fault,
who acts with justice
and speaks the truth from his heart,
he who does not slander with his tongue,

who does no wrong to his kindred,
who casts no slur on his neighbors,
who holds the godless in disdain,
but honors those who fear the Lord;

those who keep their word, come what may,
who take no interest on a loan
and accept no bribes against the innocent.
Such people will stand firm for ever. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Make our lives blameless, Lord. Help us to do what is right and to speak what is true, that we may dwell in your tent and find rest on your holy mountain.

Antiphon 2 Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.


Antiphon 3 God chose us in his Son to be his adopted children.

Canticle  -  Ephesians 1:3-10
God our savior

Praised be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has bestowed on us in Christ
every spiritual blessing in the heavens.

God chose us in him
before the world began
to be holy
and blameless in his sight,
to be full of love.

He predestined us
to be his adopted sons through Jesus Christ,
such was his will and pleasure,
that all might praise the glorious favor
he has bestowed on us in his beloved.

In him and through his blood,we have been redeemed,
and our sins forgiven,
so immeasurably generous
is God’s favor to us.

God has given us the wisdom
to understand fully the mystery,
the plan he was pleased
to decree in Christ.
A plan to be carried out
in Christ, in the fullness of time,
to bring all things into one in him,
in the heavens and on earth.  Glory...

Antiphon 3 God chose us in his Son to be his adopted children.


READING      Colossians 1:9b-13
May you attain full knowledge of God's will through perfect wisdom and spiritual insight. Then you will lead a life worthy of the Lord and pleasing to him in every way. You will multiply good works of every sort and grow in the knowledge of God. By the might of his glory you will be endowed with the strength needed to stand fast, even to endure joyfully whatever may come, giving thanks to the Father, who has made us worthy to share in the lot of the saints in light. He rescued us from the power of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of his beloved Son.


RESPONSORY
Lord, you alone can heal me, for I have grieved you by my sins.
 - Lord, you alone can heal me, for I have grieved you by my sins.
Once more I say: O Lord, have mercy on me,
 - for I have grieved you by my sins.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Lord, you alone can heal me, for I have grieved you by my sins.


MAGNIFICAT
(Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.


INTERCESSIONS
God has made an everlasting covenant with his people, and he never ceases to bless them. Grateful for these gifts, we confidently direct our prayer to him:

                           Lord, bless your people.

Save your people, Lord,
 - and bless your inheritance.

Gather into one body all who bear the name of Christian,
 - that the world may believe in Christ whom you have sent.

Give our friends and our loved ones a share in divine life,
 - let them be symbols of Christ before all people.

Show your love to those who are suffering,
 - open their eyes to the vision of your revelation.

Be compassionate to those who have died,
 - welcome them into the company of the faithful departed.


Our Father...


PRAYER
Father,
may this evening pledge of our service to you
bring you glory and praise.
For our salvation you looked with favor,
on the lowliness of the Virgin Mary;
lead us to the fullness of the salvation
you have prepared for us.
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. Amen

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