OPENING  RESPONSE

Turn us once against to Yourself, O God.

Make Your face to shine down

upon us, that we might be saved.

 

Blessed are You, Lord God,

Creator of day and night: 

to You be praise and glory forever.

As darkness falls You renew

Your promise to reveal among

us the light of Your presence.  

By the light of Christ, 

Your living Word, dispel the darkness of our hearts that we may walk as children of light and sing Your praise throughout the world.  

Blessed be God: 

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Blessed be God forever.  

 

EVENING  SONG

The God of Abraham Praise

(This is My Father's World)

 

The God of Abraham praise,

who reigns enthroned above; 

Ancient of Everlasting Days, 

and God of love; 

Jehovah, Great I Am!  

By earth and heaven confessed; 

I bow and bless the sacred name

forever blessed.

 

The great I am has sworn; 

I on this oath depend.  

I shall, on eagle wings upborne, 

to heaven ascend.  

I shall behold God’s face; 

I shall God’s power adore, 

and sing the wonders of God’s grace

for ever-more.

 

The heavenly land I see, 

with peace and plenty blest; 

a land of sacred liberty, 

and endless rest.  

There, milk and honey flow, 

and oil and wine abound, 

and trees of life forever grow

with mercy crowned.

 

That our evening may be holy, good, and peaceful, 

let us pray with one heart and mind.

 

Silence for Reflection

 

As our evening prayer rises before You, O God 

so may Your mercy come down upon us,  

to cleanse our hearts and set us free to sing

Your praise, now and forever.  Amen!
