Luke 12:1-34


CONFESSION
 
The Officiant says to the People

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Silence is kept. All kneeling, the Officiant and People say

Almighty and most merciful Father,

We have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done,

and we have done those things which we ought not to have done;

and apart from your grace, there is no health in us.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare all those who confess their faults.

Restore all those who are penitent,

according to your promises declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord;

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,

that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,

to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.

The Officiant then prays

Grant your faithful people, merciful Lord, pardon and peace; that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Gladsome Light
Phos Hilaron

O gladsome light

pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,

and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, Giver of Life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

 
The Psalm or Psalms Appointed
 

Psalm 94

Deus ultionum

 

1 O Lord God to whom vengeance belongs,*

O God to whom vengeance belongs, show yourself.

2 Arise, O Judge of the world,*

and reward the proud according to their deserving.

3 O Lord, how long shall the ungodly,*

how long shall the ungodly triumph?

4 How long shall all evildoers speak so disdainfully*

and make such proud boasting?

5 They smite down your people, O Lord,*

and trouble your heritage.

6 They murder the widow and the stranger,*

and put the fatherless to death.

7 And yet they say, “The Lord shall not see,*

neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.”

8 Take heed, you unwise among the people;*

O you fools, when will you understand?

9 He who planted the ear, shall he not hear?*

Or he who made the eye, shall he not see?

10 Or he who nurtures the nations,*

he who teaches humanity knowledge, shall he not punish?

11 The Lord knows the thoughts of man,*

that they are but vain.

12 Blessed is the one whom you chasten, O Lord,*

and whom you teach your law,

13 That you may give him patience in time of adversity,*

until a pit is dug for the ungodly.

14 For the Lord will not fail his people,*

neither will he forsake his inheritance,

15 But righteousness shall return to the place of judgment,*

and all those who are true of heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up with me against the wicked,*

or who will take my part against the evildoers?

17 If the Lord had not helped me,*

my soul would soon have dwelt in the land of silence.

18 But when I said, “My foot has slipped,”*

your mercy, O Lord, held me up.

19 In the multitude of the sorrows that I had in my heart,*

your comforts refreshed my soul.

20 Will you have anything to do with the council of wickedness,*

which turns evil into law?

21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous*

and condemn the innocent to death.

22 But the Lord is my refuge,*

and my God is the rock of my confidence.

23 He shall recompense them for their wickedness, and destroy them in their own malice;*

indeed, the Lord our God shall destroy them.

 
After the Psalm, the Officiant begins

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Canticle

The Second Song of Isaiah
Quaerite Dominum
Isaiah 55:6-11

Seek the Lord while he wills to be found;*
call upon him when he draws near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways*
and the evil ones their thoughts;
And let them turn to the Lord, and he will have compassion,*
and to our God, for he will richly pardon.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts,*
nor your ways my ways, says the Lord.
For as the heavens are higher than the earth,*
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
For as rain and snow fall from the heavens*
and return not again, but water the earth,
Bringing forth life and giving growth,*
seed for sowing and bread for eating,
So is my word that goes forth from my mouth;*
it will not return to me empty;
But it will accomplish that which I have purposed,*
and prosper in that for which I sent it.

The Apostles' Creed
 

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

 

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Amen.
