An Order of Worship for Evening Sunday 10 January 2021 WELCOME/INTRODUCTION Officiant: Light and peace, in Jesus Christ our Lord. People: Thanks be to God. It is not ourselves that we proclaim; we proclaim Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants, for Jesus' sake. For the same God who said, "Out of darkness let light shine," has caused his light to shine within us, to give the light of revelationâ€”the revelation of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. Let us Pray: Eternal God, who led your ancient people into freedom by a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night: Grant that we who walk in the light of your presence may rejoice in the liberty of the children of God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. People:
OFFICE HYMN: Te lucis ante terminum To you before the close of day, Creator of all things, we pray That in your constant clemency our guard and keeper you would be Save us from troubled, restless sleep, from all ill dreams your children keep; So calm our minds that fears may cease and rested bodies wake in peace. A healthy life we ask of you, the fire of love in us renew, And when the dawn new light will bring your praise and glory we shall sing Almighty Father, hear our cry through Jesus Christ, our Lord Most High, Whom with the Spirit we adore for ever and for evermore.
PSALM 147 (read in unison) Hallelujah! How good it is to sing praises to our God! * how pleasant it is to honor him with praise! The LORD rebuilds Jerusalem; * he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted * and binds up their wounds. He counts the number of the stars * and calls them all by their names. Great is our LORD and mighty in power; * there is no limit to his wisdom. The LORD lifts up the lowly, * but casts the wicked to the ground. Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving; * make music to our God upon the harp. He covers the heavens with clouds * and prepares rain for the earth; He makes grass to grow upon the mountains * and green plants to serve mankind. He provides food for flocks and herds * and for the young ravens when they cry. He is not impressed by the might of a horse; * he has no pleasure in the strength of a man; But the LORD has pleasure in those who fear him, * in those who await his gracious favor. Worship the LORD, O Jerusalem; * praise your God, O Zion; For he has strengthened the bars of your gates; * he has blessed your children within you. He has established peace on your borders; * he satisfies you with the finest wheat. He sends out his command to the earth, * and his word runs very swiftly. He gives snow like wool; * he scatters hoarfrost like ashes. He scatters his hail like bread crumbs; * who can stand against his cold? He sends forth his word and melts them; * he blows with his wind, and the waters flow. He declares his word to Jacob, * his statutes and his judgments to Israel.
He has not done so to any other nation; * to them he has not revealed his judgments. 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.
Lector: A Reading from the Gospel according to St. John: After this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, also called the Sea of Tiberias. 2 A large crowd kept following him, because they saw the signs that he was doing for the sick. 3 Jesus went up the mountain and sat down there with his disciples. 4 Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near. 5 When he looked up and saw a large crowd coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread for these people to eat?” 6 He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he was going to do. 7 Philip answered him, “Six months’ wages would not buy enough bread for each of them to get a little.” 8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, 9 “There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But what are they among so many people?” 10 Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was a great deal of grass in the place; so they sat down, about five thousand in all. 11 Then Jesus took the loaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them to those who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 When they were satisfied, he told his disciples, “Gather up the fragments left over, so that nothing may be lost.” 13 So they gathered them up, and from the fragments of the five barley loaves, left by those who had eaten, they filled twelve baskets. 14 When the people saw the sign that he had done, they began to say, “This is indeed the prophet who is to come into the world.” Lector: Here ends the Lesson MEDITATION INTERVAL

THE PRAYERS V. R. V. R.
Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit; For you have redeemed me, O Lord, O God of truth. Keep us, O Lord, as the apple of your eye; Hide us under the shadow of your wings.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Officiant: People Officiant:
Lord, hear our prayer And let our cry come to you. Let us pray.

Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.
NUNC DIMITTIS (The canticle is sung by cantor) Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace. Lord, you now have set your servant free * to go in peace as you have promised; For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, * whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations, * and the glory of your people Israel. 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.
