PRELUDE

“ADORATION”, FLORENCE PRICE



Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.    Philippians 1:2

Confession of Sin

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.


Clergy and People: 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.


Clergy: Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.


The Invitatory and Psalter

Officiant Lord, open thou our lips.

People And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.


Leader and People 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.

PSALM 95:1-7, VENITE, (together) 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. Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee, *     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. *     Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

PSALM 100, JUBILATE (together) Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands; *     serve the Lord with gladness     and come before his presence with a song.

Know this: The Lord himself is God; *     he himself has made us, and we are his;     we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise; *     give thanks to him and call upon his Name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; *     and his faithfulness endures from age to age.

Psalm 86:1-10, 16-17, Inclina, Domine (read responsively)

1 Bow down your ear, O Lord, and answer me, * for I am poor and in misery.

2 Keep watch over my life, for I am faithful; * save your servant who puts his trust in you.

3 Be merciful to me, O Lord, for you are my God; * I call upon you all the day long.

4 Gladden the soul of your servant, * for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.

5 For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving, * and great is your love toward all who call upon you.

6 Give ear, O Lord, to my prayer, * and attend to the voice of my supplications.

7 In the time of my trouble I will call upon you, * for you will answer me.

8 Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord, * nor anything like your works.

9 All nations you have made will come and worship you, O Lord, * and glorify your Name.

10 For you are great; you do wondrous things; * and you alone are God.

16 Turn to me and have mercy upon me; * give your strength to your servant; and save the child of your handmaid.

17 Show me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me may see it and be ashamed; * because you, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
