Day 12 Evening Prayer

Psalm 65

Te decet hymnus

  1. THOU, O God, art praised in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem.
  2. Thou that hearest the prayer: unto thee shall all flesh come.
  3. My misdeeds prevail against me: O be thou merciful unto our sins.
  4. Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and receivest unto thee: he shall dwell in thy court, and shall be satisfied with the pleasures of thy house, even of thy holy temple.
  5. Thou shalt shew us wonderful things in thy righteousness, O God of our salvation: thou that art the hope of all the ends of the earth, and of them that remain in the broad sea.
  6. Who in his strength setteth fast the mountains: and is girded about with power.
  7. Who stilleth the raging of the sea: and the noise of his waves, and the madness of the people.
  8. They also that dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be afraid at thy tokens: thou that makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to praise thee.
  9. Thou visitest the earth, and blessest it: thou makest it very plenteous.
  10. The river of God is full of water: thou preparest their corn, for so thou providest for the earth.
  11. Thou waterest her furrows, thou sendest rain into the little valleys thereof: thou makest it soft with the drops of rain, and blessest the increase of it.
  12. Thou crownest the year with thy goodness: and thy clouds drop fatness.
  13. They shall drop upon the dwellings of the wilderness: and the little hills shall rejoice on every side.
  14. The folds shall be full of sheep: the valleys also shall stand so thick with corn, that they shall laugh and sing.

Psalm 66

Jubilate Deo

  1. O BE joyful in God, all ye lands: sing praises unto the honour of his Name, make his praise to be glorious.
  2. Say unto God, O how wonderful art thou in thy works: through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies be found liars unto thee.
  3. For all the world shall worship thee: sing of thee, and praise thy Name.
  4. O come hither, and behold the works of God: how wonderful he is in his doing toward the children of men.
  5. He turned the sea into dry land: so that they went through the water on foot; there did we rejoice thereof.
  6. He ruleth with his power for ever; his eyes behold the people: and such as will not believe shall not be able to exalt themselves.
  7. O praise our God, ye people: and make the voice of his praise to be heard;
  8. Who holdeth our soul in life: and suffereth not our feet to slip.
  9. For thou, O God, hast proved us: thou also hast tried us, like as silver is tried.
  10. Thou broughtest us into the snare: and laidest trouble upon our loins.
  11. Thou sufferedst men to ride over our heads: we went through fire and water, and thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
  12. I will go into thine house with burnt-offerings: and will pay thee my vows, which I promised with my lips, and spake with my mouth, when I was in trouble.
  13. I will offer unto thee fat burnt-sacrifices, with the incense of rams: I will offer bullocks and goats.
  14. O come hither, and hearken, all ye that fear God: and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul.
  15. I called unto him with my mouth: and gave him praises with my tongue.
  16. If I incline unto wickedness with mine heart: the Lord will not hear me.
  17. But God hath heard me: and considered the voice of my prayer.
  18. Praised be God, who hath not cast out my prayer: nor turned his mercy from me.

Psalm 67

Deus misereatur

  1. GOD be merciful unto us, and bless us: and shew us the light of his countenance, and be merciful unto us:
  2. That thy way may be known upon earth: thy saving health among all nations.
  3. Let the people praise thee, O God: yea, let all the people praise thee.
  4. O let the nations rejoice and be glad: for thou shalt judge the folk righteously, and govern the nations upon earth.
  5. Let the people praise thee, O God: let all the people praise thee.
  6. Then shall the earth bring forth her increase: and God, even our own God, shall give us his blessing.
  7. God shall bless us: and all the ends of the world shall fear him.
