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 89: Part II Tunc locutus es
19   You spoke once in vision and said to your faithful people: *
"I have set the crown upon a warrior and have exalted one chosen out of the people.
20   I have found David my servant; *
with my holy oil have I anointed him.
21   My hand will hold him fast *
and my arm will make him strong.
22   No enemy shall deceive him, *
nor any wicked man bring him down.
23   I will crush his foes before him *
and strike down those who hate him.
24   My faithfulness and love shall be with him, *
and he shall be victorious through my Name.
25   I shall make his dominion extend *
from the Great Sea to the River.
26   He will say to me, 'You are my Father, *
my God, and the rock of my salvation.'
27   I will make him my firstborn *
and higher than the kings of the earth.
28   I will keep my love for him for ever, *
and my covenant will stand firm for him.
29   I will establish his line for ever *
and his throne as the days of heaven."
30   If his children forsake my law *
and do not walk according to my judgments;
31   If they break my statutes *
and do not keep my commandments;
32   I will punish their transgressions with a rod *
and their iniquities with the lash;
33   But I will not take my love from him, *
nor let my faithfulness prove false.
34   I will not break my covenant, *
nor change what has gone out of my lips.
35   Once for all I have sworn by my holiness: *
'I will not lie to David.
36   His line shall endure for ever *
and his throne as the sun before me;
37   It shall stand fast for evermore like the moon, *
the abiding witness in the sky.'"
38   But you have cast off and rejected your anointed; *
you have become enraged at him.
39   You have broken your covenant with your servant, *
defiled his crown, and hurled it to the ground.
40   You have breached all his walls *
and laid his strongholds in ruins.
41   All who pass by despoil him; *
he has become the scorn of his neighbors.
42   You have exalted the right hand of his foes *
and made all his enemies rejoice.
43   You have turned back the edge of his sword *
and have not sustained him in battle.
44   You have put an end to his splendor *
and cast his throne to the ground.
45   You have cut short the days of his youth *
and have covered him with shame.
46   How long will you hide yourself, O LORD? will you hide yourself for ever? *
how long will your anger burn like fire?
47   Remember, LORD, how short life is, *
how frail you have made all flesh.
48   Who can live and not see death? *
who can save himself from the power of the grave?
49   Where, Lord, are your loving-kindnesses of old, *
which you promised David in your faithfulness?
50   Remember, Lord, how your servant is mocked, *
how I carry in my bosom the taunts of many peoples,
51   The taunts your enemies have hurled, O LORD, *
which they hurled at the heels of your anointed.
52   Blessed be the LORD for evermore! *
Amen, I say, Amen.

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 9:42-50

"If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and to be thrown into hell., And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and to be thrown into hell, where their worm never dies, and the fire is never quenched. "For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another."

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.

The Prayers
V: The Lord be with you.
R: And also with you.
Let us pray.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen.

Collect of the Day

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Collect for Peace

Most holy God, the source of all good desires, all right judgements, and all just works: Give to us, your servants, that peace which the world cannot give, so that our minds may be fixed on the doing of your will, and that we, being delivered from the fear of all enemies, may live in peace and quietness; through the mercies of Christ Jesus our Savior.
