Hymn

 

O God creation’s secret force

Yourself unmoved all motion’s source

Who from the morn till evening ray

Through every change direct the day

 

Your light at eventide impart

That light from us may ne’er depart

But let a holy death accord

Eternal glory with the Lord

 

Almighty Father hear our cry

Through Jesus Christ our Lord most high

Whom in the spirit we adore

Who reigns with you for ever more.

 

Amen

 

 

Psalm 118 VIII

 

My part, I have resolved, O Lord,

is to obey your word.

 

With all my heart I implore your favor,

show the mercy of your promise.

 

I have pondered over my ways

and returned to your will.

 

I made haste and did not delay

to obey your commands.

 

Though the nets of the wicked ensnared me

I remembered your law.

 

At midnight I will rise and thank you

for your just decrees.

 

I am a friend of all who revere you,

who obey your love fills the earth.

 

Lord, your love fills the earth.

Teach me your statutes.

 

 

Doxology

 

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.

 

 

Psalm 118 IX

 

Lord, you have been good to your servant

according to your word.

 

Teach me discernment and knowledge

for I trust in your commands.

 

Before I was afflicted I strayed,

but now I keep your word.

 

You are good and your deeds are good;

teach me your statutes.

 

Though proud men smear me with lies,

yet I keep your precepts.

 

Their minds are closed to good,

but your law is my delight.

 

It was good for me to be afflicted,

to learn your statutes.

 

The law from your mouth means more to me

than silver and gold.

 

 

Doxology

 

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.

 

 

Psalm 118 X

 

It was your hands that made me and shaped me:

help me to learn your commands.

 

Your faithful will see me and rejoice

for I trust in your word.

 

Lord, I know that your decrees are right,

that you afflicted me justly.

 

Let your love be ready to console me

by your promise to your servant.

 

Let your love come to me and I shall live

for your law is my delight.

 

Shame the proud who harm me with lies

while I ponder your precepts.

 

Let my heart be blameless in your statutes

lest I be ashamed.

 

 

Doxology

 

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.

 

 

Psalm 118 XI

 

I yearn for your saving help;

I hope in your word.

 

My eyes yearn to see your promise.

When will you console me?

 

Though parched and exhausted with waiting

I remember your statutes.

 

How long must your servant suffer?

When will you judge my foes?

 

For me the proud have dug pitfalls,

against your law.

 

Your commands are all true; then help me

when lies oppress me.

 

They almost made an end of me on earth,

but I kept your precepts.

 

Because of your love give me life

and I will do your will.

 

 

Doxology

 

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.
