An Order of Worship for Evening Sunday 14 February 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 revelation—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 114 (read in unison)
Hallelujah! When Israel came out of Egypt, * the house of Jacob from a people of strange speech, 2
Judah became God's sanctuary * and Israel his dominion. 3
The sea beheld it and fled; * Jordan turned and went back. 4
The mountains skipped like rams, * and the little hills like young sheep. 5
What ailed you, O sea, that you fled? * O Jordan, that you turned back? 6
You mountains, that you skipped like rams? * you little hills like young sheep? 7
Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, * at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8
Who turned the hard rock into a pool of water * and flint-stone into a flowing spring. Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit As it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
Lector: A Reading from the Gospel of Luke: 18
Once when Jesus was praying alone, with only the disciples near him, he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” 19 They answered, “John the Baptist; but others, Elijah; and still others, that one of the ancient prophets has arisen.” 20 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.” 21 He sternly ordered and commanded them not to tell anyone, 22 saying, “The Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised.” 23 Then he said to them all, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. 25 What does it profit them if they gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit themselves? 26 Those who are ashamed of me and of my words, of them the Son of Man
will be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 27 But truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.” Lector: Here ends the Lesson MEDITATION INTERVAL

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.

Lord, hear our prayer And let our cry come to you. Let us pray.

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. 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.
