Confession of Sin

OfficiantLet us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.
AllAlmighty and most merciful Father,
we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.
we have followed too much the deceits and desires of our own hearts.
we have offended against your holy laws.
we have left undone those things which we ought to have done,
and we have done those things which we ought not to have done;
and apart from your grace, there is no health in us.
O Lord, have mercy upon us.
Spare those who confess their faults.
Restore those who are penitent,
according to your promises declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord;
And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,
that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,
to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.
A brief silence is kept
OfficiantGrant 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;8-11

O come, let us sing to the Lord;*
Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;*
Let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

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

O come, let us worship and bow down,*
Let us 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.

O, that today you would hearken to his voice!

 

The Psalm or Psalms Appointed

The appointed Psalm is read together
 

Psalm 102

102:1 Hear my prayer, O Lord;
let my cry come to you!
Do not hide your face from me
in the day of my distress!
Incline your ear to me;
answer me speedily in the day when I call!

For my days pass away like smoke,
and my bones burn like a furnace.
My heart is struck down like grass and has withered;
I forget to eat my bread.
Because of my loud groaning
my bones cling to my flesh.
I am like a desert owl of the wilderness,
like an owl of the waste places;
I lie awake;
I am like a lonely sparrow on the housetop.
All the day my enemies taunt me;
those who deride me use my name for a curse.
For I eat ashes like bread
and mingle tears with my drink,
10 because of your indignation and anger;
for you have taken me up and thrown me down.
11 My days are like an evening shadow;
I wither away like grass.

12 But you, O Lord, are enthroned forever;
you are remembered throughout all generations.
13 You will arise and have pity on Zion;
it is the time to favor her;
the appointed time has come.
14 For your servants hold her stones dear
and have pity on her dust.
15 Nations will fear the name of the Lord,
and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory.
16 For the Lord builds up Zion;
he appears in his glory;
17 he regards the prayer of the destitute
and does not despise their prayer.

18 Let this be recorded for a generation to come,
so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord:
19 that he looked down from his holy height;
from heaven the Lord looked at the earth,
20 to hear the groans of the prisoners,
to set free those who were doomed to die,
21 that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord,
and in Jerusalem his praise,
22 when peoples gather together,
and kingdoms, to worship the Lord.

23 He has broken my strength in midcourse;
he has shortened my days.
24 “O my God,” I say, “take me not away
in the midst of my days—
you whose years endure
throughout all generations!”

25 Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,
and the heavens are the work of your hands.
26 They will perish, but you will remain;
they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,
27 but you are the same, and your years have no end.
28 The children of your servants shall dwell secure;
their offspring shall be established before you.

ESV
 
Psalm 103
Bless the LORD, O my soul, *
and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, *
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquities, *
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from destruction, *
who crowns you with steadfast love and tender mercy,
who satisfies you with good things *
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
The LORD works righteousness *
and justice for all who are oppressed.
He made known his ways to Moses, *
his acts to the children of Israel.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, *
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
He will not always chide, *
nor will he keep his anger forever.
He has not dealt with us according to our sins, *
nor repaid us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, *
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west, *
so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
As a father has compassion for his children, *
so the LORD has compassion for those who fear him.
For he knows our frame; *
he remembers that we are dust.
As for man, his days are like grass; *
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
the wind passes over it and it is gone, *
and its place remembers it no more.
But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, *
and his righteousness to children’s children,
to those who keep his covenant *
and remember his commandments and do them.
The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, *
and his kingdom rules over all.
Bless the LORD, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his bidding, *
obeying the voice of his word!
Bless the LORD, all you his hosts, *
his ministers, who do his will!
Bless the LORD, all his works,
in all places of his dominion. *
Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Canticle

 

Benedictus
The Song of Zechariah
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.

 

The Apostles' Creed

Everyone shall join in proclaiming the Creed
 

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 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.
