Evening Prayer for Tuesday in Week 3 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.

PSALMODY

Ant. 1 Peace be with you; it is I, do not be afraid, alleluia.

Psalm 125
The Lord, guardian of his people

Peace to God’s true Israel (Galatians 6:16).

Those who put their trust in the Lord
are like Mount Zion, that cannot be shaken,
that stands for ever.

Jerusalem! The mountains surround her,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and for ever.

For the scepter of the wicked shall not rest
over the land of the just
for fear that the hands of the just
should turn to evil.

Do good, Lord, to those who are good,
to the upright of heart;
but the crooked and those who do evil,
drive them away!

On Israel, peace!

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-prayer

Surround your people, Lord, within the safety of your Church, which you preserve on its rock foundation. Do not let us stretch out our hands to evil deeds, nor be destroyed by the insidious snares of the enemy, but bring us to share the lot of the saints in light.

Ant. Peace be with you; it is I, do not be afraid, alleluia.

Ant. 2 Let Israel hope in the Lord, alleluia.

Psalm 131
Childlike trust in God

Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble of heart (Matthew 11:29).

O Lord, my heart is not proud
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
nor marvels beyond me.

Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
As a child has rest in its mother’s arms,
even so is my soul.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
both now and forever.

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-prayer

Lord Jesus, gentle and humble of heart, you declared that whoever receives a little child in your name receives you, and you promised your kingdom to those who are like children. Never let pride reign in our hearts, but may the Father’s compassion reward and embrace all who willingly bear your gentle yoke.

Ant. Let Israel hope in the Lord, alleluia.

Ant. 3 Let all creation serve you, for all things came into being at your word, alleluia.

Canticle – Revelation 4:11; 5:9, 10, 12
Redemption hymn

O Lord our God, you are worthy
to receive glory and honor and power.

For you have created all things;
by your will they came to be and were made.

Worthy are you, O Lord,
to receive the scroll and break open its seals.

For you were slain;
with your blood you purchased for God
men of every race and tongue,
of every people and nation.

You made of them a kingdom,
and priests to serve our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power and riches,
wisdom and strength,
honor and glory and praise.

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. Let all creation serve you, for all things came into being at your word, alleluia.

READING 1 Peter 2:4-5

Come to the Lord, a living stone, rejected by men but approved, nonetheless, and precious in God’s eyes. You too are living stones, built as an edifice of spirit into a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

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.

RESPONSORY

The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.
The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.

When they saw the risen Lord,
alleluia, alleluia.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.

CANTICLE OF MARY

Ant. The bread of God that comes down from heaven gives life to the world, 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. The bread of God that comes down from heaven gives life to the world, alleluia.

INTERCESSIONS

As Christ lay in the darkness of the earth he saw the light of a new glory. Let us cry out to him in joy:
King of glory, hear us.

We pray for all bishops, priests and deacons, that they may be zealous in their ministry,
and prepare for you a people devoted to every good work.
King of glory, hear us.

We pray for all who teach in the service of your Church,
that they may seek your truth with a sincere heart.
King of glory, hear us.

We pray for your faithful people, that they may be victorious in the contest of faith,
and win the prize of victory in your kingdom.
King of glory, hear us.

You canceled our condemnation by nailing it to the cross,
free us from our chains, and lead us out of darkness.
King of glory, hear us.

You went down among the dead and opened for them the gates to life,
welcome our dead brothers and sisters into your kingdom.
King of glory, hear us.

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.

Concluding Prayer

O God, who open wide
the gates of the heavenly Kingdom
to those reborn of water and the Holy Spirit,
pour out on your servants
an increase of the grace you have bestowed,
that, having been purged of all sins,
they may lack nothing that in your kindness you have promised.
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.

DISMISSAL

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.
