Evening Prayer for Tuesday in the Octave of Easter

God, come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.

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. Alleluia.

HYMN

Chorus:
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;

Chorus:
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.

Beside restful waters He leads me;
He refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths
for His name’s sake.

Chorus:
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.

You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
for years to come.

Chorus:
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.
The Lord is my shepherd; There is nothing I shall want.

READING 1 Peter 2:4-5

Sacred Silence (indicated by a bell) – a moment to reflect and receive in our hearts the full resonance of the voice of the Holy Spirit and to unite our personal prayer more closely with the word of God and public voice of the Church.

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad, alleluia.

Luke 1:46-55
The soul rejoices in the Lord

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.

He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.

He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.

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.

Ant. While I was weeping at the tomb, I saw my Lord, alleluia.

and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

who have bestowed on us paschal remedies,
endow your people with heavenly gifts,

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
