A Late Evening Office
Wednesday 18th May 2022

Blessed be our God for all time, now and for evermore.

Glory to you, our God, glory be to you,
Holy Spirit, Comforter,
treasure of all goodness and giver of life,
come and dwell in us,
cleanse us from all sin,
and in your love bring us to salvation.
Holy God, holy and strong,
holy and immortal,
have mercy on us.

1 I will exalt you, O Lord,
because you have raised me up ♦︎
and have not let my foes triumph over me.
2 O Lord my God, I cried out to you ♦︎
and you have healed me.
3 You brought me up, O Lord, from the dead; ♦︎
you restored me to life from among those that go down to the Pit.
4 Sing to the Lord, you servants of his; ♦︎
give thanks to his holy name.
5 For his wrath endures but the twinkling of an eye,
his favour for a lifetime. ♦︎
Heaviness may endure for a night,
but joy comes in the morning.
6 In my prosperity I said,
‘I shall never be moved. ♦︎
You, Lord, of your goodness,
have made my hill so strong.’
7 Then you hid your face from me ♦︎
and I was utterly dismayed.
8 To you, O Lord, I cried; ♦︎
to the Lord I made my supplication:
9 ‘What profit is there in my blood,
if I go down to the Pit? ♦︎
Will the dust praise you or declare your faithfulness?
10 ‘Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me; ♦︎
O Lord, be my helper.’
11 You have turned my mourning into dancing; ♦︎
you have put off my sackcloth and girded me with gladness;
12 Therefore my heart sings to you without ceasing; ♦︎
O Lord my God, I will give you thanks for ever.
Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be for ever. Amen.

LUKE 10:25-28
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. ‘Teacher,’ he said, ‘what must I do to inherit
eternal life?’ He said to him, ‘What is written in the law? What do you read there?’ He
answered, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.’ And
he said to him, ‘You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.’
