Evening Prayer II for Sunday in Week 7 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

Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, his the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus out of every nation
has redeemed us by his blood.

Alleluia! not as orphans
are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us,
faith believes, nor questions how;
Though the cloud from sight received him
when the forty days were o'er
shall our hearts forget his promise,
'I am with you evermore'?

Alleluia! bread of angels,
here on earth our food and stay!
Alleluia! here the sinful
flee to thee from day to day.
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,
earth's Redeemer, plead for me.
Where the songs of all the sinless
sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! King eternal,
thee the Lord of lords we own;
Alleluia! born of Mary,
earth thy footstool,
heaven thy throne.
Thou within the veil hast entered,
robed in flesh, our great High Priest.
Thou on earth both Priest and Victim
in the Eucharistic Feast.

Alleluia! sing to Jesus!
His the scepter, his the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph,
his the victory alone.
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion
thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus out of every nation
has redeemed us by his blood.

INTERCESSIONS

We do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself prays for us with inexpressible longing. Let us then say:
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

Lord Jesus, shepherd in glory, give wisdom and counsel to our shepherds,
to lead your flock more surely to salvation.
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

You are exalted in heaven, and are rich in mercy,
look with compassion on the poor and needy on earth.
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

You were conceived by the Virgin Mary by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit,
sustain those vowed to virginity in the spirit of their self-offering.
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

You are our priest, offering praise to the Father in the Holy Spirit,
unite all mankind in your sacrifice of praise.
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

May the dead enter into the glorious freedom of God’s children,
and the fullness of redemption for their bodies.
May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf.

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

Graciously
hear our supplications,
O Lord, so that we,
who believe that the Savior of the human race
is with you in your glory,
may experience, as he promised,
until the end of the world,
his abiding presence among us.
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.
