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 19 Caeli enarrant

1   The heavens declare the glory of God, *
and the firmament shows his handiwork.
2   One day tells its tale to another, *
and one night imparts knowledge to another.
3   Although they have no words or language, *
and their voices are not heard,
4   Their sound has gone out into all lands, *
and their message to the ends of the world.
5   In the deep has he set a pavilion for the sun; *
it comes forth like a bridegroom out of his chamber; it rejoices like a champion to run its course.
6   It goes forth from the uttermost edge of the heavens and runs about to the end of it again; *
nothing is hidden from its burning heat.
7   The law of the LORD is perfect and revives the soul; *
the testimony of the LORD is sure and gives wisdom to the innocent.
8   The statutes of the LORD are just and rejoice the heart; *
the commandment of the LORD is clear and gives light to the eyes.
9   The fear of the LORD is clean and endures for ever; *
the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10   More to be desired are they than gold, more than much fine gold, *
sweeter far than honey, than honey in the comb.
11   By them also is your servant enlightened, *
and in keeping them there is great reward.
12   Who can tell how often he offends? *
cleanse me from my secret faults.
13   Above all, keep your servant from presumptuous sins; let them not get dominion over me; *
then shall I be whole and sound, and innocent of a great offense.
14   Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, *
O LORD, my strength and my redeemer.
Psalm 46 Deus noster refugium

1   God is our refuge and strength, *
a very present help in trouble.
2   Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, *
and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea;
3   Though its waters rage and foam, *
and though the mountains tremble at its tumult.
4   The LORD of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
5   There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, *
the holy habitation of the Most High.
6   God is in the midst of her; she shall not be overthrown; *
God shall help her at the break of day.
7   The nations make much ado, and the kingdoms are shaken; *
God has spoken, and the earth shall melt away.
8   The LORD of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
9   Come now and look upon the works of the LORD, *
what awesome things he has done on earth.
10   It is he who makes war to cease in all the world; *
he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, and burns the shields with fire.
11   Be still, then, and know that I am God; *
I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth.
12   The LORD of hosts is with us; *
the God of Jacob is our stronghold.
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 Luke 5:1-11

Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch." Simon answered, "Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets." When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, "Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!" For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people." When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.

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.
