Evening Prayer II for Sunday in Ordinary Time

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

O blest Creator of the light,
who mak'st the day with radiance bright,
and o'er the forming world didst call
the light from chaos first of all.

Whose wisdom joined in meet array
the morn and eve, and named them day:
night comes with all its darkling fears;
regard thy people's prayers and tears.

Lest, sunk in sin, and whelmed with strife,
they lose the gift of endless life;
while thinking but the thoughts of time,
they weave new chains of woe and crime.

But grant them grace that they may strain
the heavenly gate and prize to gain:
each harmful lure aside to cast,
and purge away each error past.

O Father, that we ask be done,
through Jesus Christ, thine only Son;
who, with the Holy Ghost and thee,
doth live and reign eternally. Amen.

RESPONSORY

The whole creation proclaims the greatness of your glory.
The whole creation proclaims the greatness of your glory.

Eternal ages praise
the greatness of your glory.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
The whole creation proclaims the greatness of your glory.

CANTICLE OF MARY

Ant. No servant can obey two masters: you cannot serve God and the love of money at the same time.

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. No servant can obey two masters: you cannot serve God and the love of money at the same time.

Through your presence, guide the college of bishops in union with the Pope,
give them the gifts of unity, love and peace.
Lord, may your kingdom come.

Bind all Christians more closely to yourself, their divine Head,
lead them to proclaim your kingdom by the witness of their lives.
Lord, may your kingdom come.

Grant peace to the world,
let every land flourish in justice and security.
Lord, may your kingdom come.

Grant to the dead the glory of resurrection,
and give us a share in their happiness.
Lord, may your kingdom come.

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.

who founded all the commands
of your sacred Law upon love of you
and of our neighbor, grant that,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
