Invitatory Psalm 116

 

 

 

 O praise the Lord, all you nations,

acclaim him all you peoples!

 

Strong is his love for us;

he is faithful for ever.

 

Praise the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages. 

 

 

Hymn

(varies)

 

O splendor of the Father’s ray

Extending to us light from light

O Light of Light, O Source of Life

O Day who made the light of day

 

O come True Son and live in us

Spread your eternal light on us

And may the Spirit’s radiance shine

To guide our senses on this day

 

The golden dawn brings on the sun

May the True Son arise in us

The Son is with the Father one

The Father also with the Son

 

Praised be the Father and the Son

And Holy Spirit equally

The Triune Godhead Three in One

Now and for all eternity

 

Amen

 

 

Psalm 6

 

Lord, do not reprove me in your anger;

punish me not, in your rage.

 

Have mercy on me, Lord, I have no strength

Lord, heal me, my body is racked;

my soul is racked with pain.

 

But you, O Lord… how long?

Return, Lord, rescue my soul.

 

Save me in your merciful love

for in death no one remembers you;

from the grave, who can give you praise?

 

I am exhausted with my groaning; 

every night I drench my pillow with tears;

I bedew my bed with weeping.

 

My eye wastes away with grief;

I have grown old surrounded by my foes.

 

Leave me, all you who do evil;

for the Lord has heard my weeping.

 

The Lord has heard my plea.

The Lord will accept my prayer.

 

All my foes will retire in confusion,

foiled and suddenly confounded.

 

 

 

 

Psalm 6

 

Lord, do not reprove me in your anger;

punish me not, in your rage.

 

Have mercy on me, Lord, I have no strength

Lord, heal me, my body is racked;

my soul is racked with pain.

 

But you, O Lord… how long?

Return, Lord, rescue my soul.

 

Save me in your merciful love

for in death no one remembers you;

from the grave, who can give you praise?

 

I am exhausted with my groaning; 

every night I drench my pillow with tears;

I bedew my bed with weeping.

 

My eye wastes away with grief;

I have grown old surrounded by my foes.

 

Leave me, all you who do evil;

for the Lord has heard my weeping.

 

The Lord has heard my plea.

The Lord will accept my prayer.

 

All my foes will retire in confusion,

foiled and suddenly confounded.

 

 

 

Psalm 75

 

God is made known in Judah;

in Israel his name is great.

 

He set up his tent in Jerusalem

and his dwelling place in Zion.

 

It was there he broke the flashing arrows,

the shield, the sword, the armor.

 

You, O Lord, are resplendent,

more majestic than the everlasting mountains.

 

The warriors, despoiled, slept in death;

the hands of the soldiers were powerless.

 

At your threat, O God of Jacob,

horse and rider lay stunned.

 

You, you alone, strike terror.

Who shall stand when your anger is roused?

 

You uttered your sentence from the heavens;

the earth in terror was still

 

when God arose to judge,

to save the humble of the earth.

 

Men’s anger will serve to praise you;

its survivors surround you in joy.

 

Make vows to your God and fulfill them.

Let all pay tribute to him who strikes terror.

 

who cuts short the breath of princes,

who strikes terror in the kings of the earth.

 

 

 

Psalm 113B

 

 

Not to us, Lord, not to us,

but to your name give the glory

 

for the sake of your love and your truth,

lest the heathen say: ‘Where is their God?”

 

But our God is in the heavens;

he does whatever he wills.

 

Their idols are silver and gold,

the work of human hands.

 

They have mouths but they cannot speak;

they have eyes but they cannot see;

 

they have ears but they cannot hear;

they have nostrils but they cannot smell.

 

With their hands they cannot feel;

with their feet they cannot walk.

No sound comes from their throats.

 

Their makers will come to be like them

and so will all who trust in them.

 

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord;

he is their help and their shield.

 

Sons of Aaron, trust in the Lord;

he is their help and their shield.

 

You who fear him, trust in the Lord;

he is their help and their shield.

 

He remembers us, and he will bless us;

he will bless the sons of Israel.

he will bless the sons of Aaron.

 

   The Lord will bless those who fear him,

the little no less than the great:

 

to you may the Lord grant increase,

to you and all your children.

 

May you be blessed by the Lord,

the maker of heaven and earth.

 

The heavens belong to the Lord

but the earth he has given to men.

 

The dead shall not praise the Lord,

nor those who go down into the silence.

 

But we who live bless the Lord­

now and for ever.  Amen.

 

 

           

Song of Zachary

 

 

 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel !

He has visited his people and redeemed them.

 

He has raised up for us a mighty savior

in the house of David his servant,

 

As he promised by the lips of holy men,

those who were his prophets from of old.

 

A savior who would free us from our foes,

from the hands of all who hate us.

 

So his love for our fathers is fulfilled

and his holy covenant remembered.

 

He swore to Abraham our father 

to grant us that, free from fear,

and saved from the hands of our foes,

 

We might serve him in holiness and justice

all the days of your life in his presence.

 

As for you, little child, you shall be called

a prophet of God, the Most High.

 

You shall go ahead of the Lord,

to prepare his ways before him.

 

To make known to his people their salvation

through the forgiveness of their sins,

 

The loving-kindness of the heart of our God

who visits us like the dawn from on high.

 

He will give light to those in darkness, 

those who dwell in the shadow of death,

and guide us into the way of peace.

 
Praise
the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit,

both now and for ever,

 

The God who is, who was, and is to come,

at the end of the ages.

Concluding Prayer

(varies)

God our Father,

you conquer the darkness of ignorance

by the light of your Word.

 

Strengthen within our hearts the faith you have given us;

let not temptation ever quench the fire

that your love has kindled within us.

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.
