1st September, 2021.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.
O God, I will sing to you a new song;
I will play to you on a ten stringed harp.
You that give salvation to kings
and have delivered David your servant.
Save me from the peril of the sword
and deliver me from the hand of foreign enemies.
Whose mouth speaks wickedness
and whose right hand is the hand of falsehood.
So that our sons in their youth may be like well nurtured plants,
and our daughters like pillars carved for the corners of the temple.
Our barns be filled with all manner of store;
our flocks bearing thousands, and ten thousands in our fields.
Our cattle be heavy with young:
may there be no miscarriage or untimely birth, no cry of distress in our streets.
Happy are the people whose blessing this is.
Happy are the people who have the Lord for their God.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
That this evening may be holy, good and peaceful, let us pray with one heart and mind.
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 for ever.
The word of God
Song of Soloman 8:5-7
Who is that coming up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved? Under the apple tree I awakened you. There your mother was in labour with you; there she who bore you was in labour. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death, passion fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, a raging flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it.
If one offered for love all the wealth of one’s house, it would be utterly scorned.
Anthem: My beloved spake
My beloved spake, and said unto me,
Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
And the vines with the tender grape give a good smell.
Arise my love, my fair one and come away.
Setting by Patrick Hadley
