Confession

The confession is said privately. The audio file begins after confession.

Most merciful God,

we confess that we have sinned against you

in thought, word, and deed,

by what we have done,

and by what we have left undone.

We have not loved you with our whole heart;

we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.

We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.

For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,

have mercy on us and forgive us;

that we may delight in your will,

and walk in your ways,

to the glory of your Name. Amen.

A brief silence is kept

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.

Venite
Psalm 95:1-7; 96:9,13

O come, let us sing to the Lord;*
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving*
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

 

For the Lord is a great God,*
and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth,*
and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,*
and his hands have molded the dry land.

 

O come, let us worship and bow down,*
and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God,*
and we are the people of his pasture
and the sheep of his hand.
Today, if you hear his voice,*
do not harden your heart as in the rebellion.

 

O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness;*
let the whole earth stand in awe of him.
For he comes, for he comes to judge the earth*
and with righteousness to judge the world
and the peoples in his faithfulness.

 

Psalter

The appointed Psalm is read together

Psalm 109
1  Do not be silent, O God of my praise.
For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, *
speaking against me with lying tongues.
3  They have surrounded me with words of hate, *
and fought against me without a cause.
4  In return for my love they have become my accusers, *
but I give myself to prayer.
5  Thus they reward me evil for good, *
and hatred for my love.
6  Appoint a wicked man against him; *
let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7  When he is tried, let him come forth guilty; *
let his prayer be counted as sin.
8  May his days be few; *
may another take his office.
9  May his children be fatherless, *
and his wife a widow.
10  May his children wander about and beg; *
may they be cast out of their habitations.
11  May the creditor seize all that he has; *
may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12  Let there be none to extend kindness to him, *
nor any to pity his fatherless children.
13  May his posterity be cut off; *
may his name be wiped out in the next generation.
14  May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, *
and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15  Let them be always before the LORD, *
that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
16  For he was not minded to show kindness,
but pursued the poor and needy *
and the brokenhearted, to put him to death.
17  As he loved cursing; let curses come upon him. *
He did not delight in blessing; so may it be far from him.
18  He clothed himself with cursing as his coat; *
so let it soak into his body like water,
and like oil into his bones.
19  May it be to him a garment that he wraps around him, *
like a belt that he wears continually.
20  May this be the reward from the LORD to my accusers, *
of those who speak evil against my soul.
21  But you, O LORD my Lord,
deal kindly with me for the sake of your name; *
because your mercy is good, deliver me.
22  For I am poor and needy, *
and my heart is wounded within me.
23  I am passing like a shadow at evening; *
I am shaken off like a locust.
24  My knees are weak from fasting; *
my flesh has grown lean, without fatness.
25  I am an object of scorn to my accusers; *
when they see me, they shake their heads.
26  Help me, O LORD my God; *
save me according to your steadfast love.
27  Let them know that this is your hand; *
that you, O LORD, have done it.
28  Though they curse, yet you will bless.
Let them arise and be put to shame, *
but your servant will rejoice.
29  May my accusers be clothed with dishonor; *
may they be wrapped in their own shame as a cloak.
30  With my mouth I will give great thanks to the LORD; *
I will praise him in the midst of many.
31  For he stands at the right hand of the needy, *
to save him from those who would condemn his soul. †

Canticle

The Song of Zechariah
Benedictus Dominus Deus
Luke 1: 68-79

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;*
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty savior,*
born of the house of his servant David.
Through his holy prophets he promised of old,
that he would save us from our enemies,*
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers*
and to remember his holy covenant.
This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham,*
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
Free to worship him without fear,*
holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High,*
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
To give his people knowledge of salvation*
by the forgiveness of their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God*
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
To shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death,*
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.

The Creed

 

I believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, visible and invisible.

 

I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only-begotten Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
was incarnate from the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father,
who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
I acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

I look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
