O Gracious Light Phos hilaron

O gracious 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, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

Psalm 110 Dixit Dominus

1   The LORD said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, *
until I make your enemies your footstool."
2   The LORD will send the scepter of your power out of Zion, *
saying, "Rule over your enemies round about you.
3   Princely state has been yours from the day of your birth; *
in the beauty of holiness have I begotten you, like dew from the womb of the morning."
4   The LORD has sworn and he will not recant: *
"You are a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek."
5   The Lord who is at your right hand will smite kings in the day of his wrath; *
he will rule over the nations.
6   He will heap high the corpses; *
he will smash heads over the wide earth.
7   He will drink from the brook beside the road; *
therefore he will lift high his head.
Psalm 116 Dilexi, quoniam

1   I love the LORD, because he has heard the voice of my supplication, *
because he has inclined his ear to me whenever I called upon him.
2   The cords of death entangled me; the grip of the grave took hold of me; *
I came to grief and sorrow.
3   Then I called upon the Name of the LORD: *
"O LORD, I pray you, save my life."
4   Gracious is the LORD and righteous; *
our God is full of compassion.
5   The LORD watches over the innocent; *
I was brought very low, and he helped me.
6   Turn again to your rest, O my soul. *
for the LORD has treated you well.
7   For you have rescued my life from death, *
my eyes from tears, and my feet from stumbling.
8   I will walk in the presence of the LORD *
in the land of the living.
9   I believed, even when I said, "I have been brought very low." *
In my distress I said, "No one can be trusted."
10   How shall I repay the LORD *
for all the good things he has done for me?
11   I will lift up the cup of salvation *
and call upon the Name of the LORD.
12   I will fulfill my vows to the LORD *
in the presence of all his people.
13   Precious in the sight of the LORD *
is the death of his servants.
14   O LORD, I am your servant; *
I am your servant and the child of your handmaid; you have freed me from my bonds.
15   I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving *
and call upon the Name of the LORD.
16   I will fulfill my vows to the LORD *
in the presence of all his people,
17   In the courts of the LORD'S house, *
in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Hallelujah!
Psalm 117 Laudate Dominum

1   Praise the LORD, all you nations; *
laud him, all you peoples.
2   For his loving-kindness toward us is great, *
and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Hallelujah!
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.

The Lessons
A reading from Mark 14:43-52

Immediately, while he was still speaking, Judas, one of the twelve, arrived; and with him there was a crowd with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders. Now the betrayer had given them a sign, saying, "The one I will kiss is the man; arrest him and lead him away under guard." So when he came, he went up to him at once and said, "Rabbi!" and kissed him. Then they laid hands on him and arrested him. But one of those who stood near drew his sword and struck the slave of the high priest, cutting off his ear. Then Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs to arrest me as though I were a bandit? Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not arrest me. But let the scriptures be fulfilled." All of them deserted him and fled. A certain young man was following him, wearing nothing but a linen cloth. They caught hold of him, but he left the linen cloth and ran off naked.

Here ends the Reading.

The Song of Mary Magnificat
Luke 1:46-55

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him *
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm, *
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things, *
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers, *
to Abraham and his children for ever.

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.

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 power of 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.
