ALL SOULS

Evening Prayer

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
Dies Irae III (13-18)
Chant: Schola Cantorum St. Peter's in the Loop



Qui Mariam absolvisti,
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Preces meæ non sunt dignæ:
sed tu bonus fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.

Inter oves locum præsta,
et ab hædis me sequestra,
statuens in parte dextra.

Confutatis maledictis,
flammis acribus addictis:
voca me cum benedictis.

Oro supplex et acclinis,
cor contritum quasi cinis:
gere curam mei finis.

Lacrimosa dies illa,
qua resurget ex favilla
judicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus,
pie Jesu Domine,
dona eis requiem. Amen.


You who forgave Mary [Magdalen],
and heard the plea of the thief [Dismas]
have given hope to me also.

My prayers are unworthy;
but you, the Good, show me favour,
that I may not be consumed by eternal fire.

Grant me a place among the sheep,
and separate me from the goats,
placing me at your right hand.

When the wicked are confounded,
doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
call me with Thy Saints surrounded.

Low I kneel, with heart submission!
See, like ashes my contrition!
Help me in my last condition!

That day of tears and mourning,
when from the ashes shall arise,
all humanity to be judged.
Spare us by your mercy, Lord,
gentle Lord Jesus,
grant them eternal rest. Amen.



PSALMODY

Antiphon: The Lord will keep you from all evil. He will guard your soul.

Psalm 121

I lift up my eyes to the mountains;
from where shall come my help?
My help shall come from the Lord
who made heaven and earth.

May he never allow you to stumble!
Let him sleep not, your guard.
No, he sleeps not nor slumbers,
Israel's guard.

The Lord is your guard and your shade;
at your right side he stands.
By day the sun shall not smite you
nor the moon in the night.

The Lord will guard you from evil,
he will guard your soul.
The Lord will guard your going and coming
both now and for ever.

Antiphon: The Lord will keep you from all evil. He will guard your soul.


Antiphon: If you kept a record of our sins, Lord, who could escape condemnation?

Psalm 130

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.

Antiphon: If you kept a record of our sins, Lord, who could escape condemnation?


Antiphon:As the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so the Son gives life to whom he wills.

Canticle: Philippians 2:5-11

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!

Antiphon:As the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so the Son gives life to whom he wills.


READING          1 Cor.15:55-57
O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and sin gets its sting from the law. But thanks be to God who has given us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


RESPONSORY
In you, Lord, is our hope. We shall never hope in vain.
  -  In you, Lord, is our hope. We shall never hope in vain.
We shall dance and rejoice in your mercy.
  -  We shall never hope in vain.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
  -  In you, Lord, is our hope. We shall never hope in vain.


MAGNIFICAT
(Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I shall not turn away.


INTERCESSIONS
We acknowledge Christ the Lord through whom we hope that our lowly bodies will be made like his in glory, and we say:

                        Lord, you are our life and resurrection.

Christ, Son of the living God, who raised up Lazarus, your friend, from the dead,
  -   raise up to life and glory the dead whom you have redeemed by your precious blood.

Christ, consoler of those who mourn, you dried the tears of the family of Lazarus, of the widow’s son, and the daughter of Jairus,
  -   comfort those who mourn for the dead.

Christ, Savior, destroy the reign of sin in our earthly bodies, so that just as through sin we deserved punishment,
  -   so through you we may gain eternal life.

Christ, Redeemer, look on those who have no hope because they do not know you,
  -   may they receive faith in the resurrection and in the life of the world to come.

You revealed yourself to the blind man who begged for the light of his eyes,
  -   show your face to the dead who are still deprived of your light.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Listen kindly to our prayers, O Lord,
and, as our faith in your Son,
raised from the dead, is deepened,
so may our hope of resurrection for your departed servants
also find new strength.
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.
