Day 5 Evening Prayer
- THE Lord is my light and my salvation ; whom then shall I fear: the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?
- When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh: they stumbled and fell.
- Though an host of men were laid against me, yet shall not my heart be afraid: and though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.
- One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will require: even that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and to visit his temple.
- For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his tabernacle: yea, in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me, and set me up upon a rock of stone.
- And now shall he lift up mine head: above mine enemies round about me.
- Therefore will I offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness: I will sing, and speak praises unto the Lord.
- Hearken unto my voice, O Lord, when I cry unto thee: have mercy upon me, and hear me.
- My heart hath talked of thee, Seek ye my face: Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
- O hide not thou thy face from me: nor cast thy servant away in displeasure.
- Thou hast been my succour: leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.
- When my father and my mother forsake me: the Lord taketh me up.
- Teach me thy way, O Lord: and lead me in the right way, because of mine enemies.
- Deliver me not over into the will of mine adversaries: for there are false witnesses risen up against me, and such as speak wrong.
- I should utterly have fainted: but that I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
- O tarry thou the Lord's leisure: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart ; and put thou thy trust in the Lord.
Ad te, Domine
- UNTO thee will I cry, O Lord my strength: think no scorn of me; lest, if thou make as though thou hearest not, I become like them that go down into the pit.
- Hear the voice of my humble petitions, when I cry unto thee: when I hold up my hands towards the mercy-seat of thy holy temple.
- O pluck me not away, neither destroy me, with the ungodly and wicked doers: which speak friendly to their neighbours, but imagine mischief in their hearts.
- Reward them according to their deeds: and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.
- Recompense them after the work of their hands: pay them that they have deserved.
- For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands: therefore shall he break them down, and not build them up.
- Praised be the Lord: for he hath heard the voice of my humble petitions.
- The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.
- The Lord is my strength: and he is the wholesome defence of his Anointed.
- O save thy people, and give thy blessing unto thine inheritance: feed them , and set them up for ever.
- BRING unto the Lord, O ye mighty, bring young rams unto the Lord: ascribe unto the Lord worship and strength.
- Give the Lord the honour due unto his Name: worship the Lord with holy worship.
- It is the Lord that commandeth the waters: it is the glorious God that maketh the thunder.
- It is the Lord that ruleth the sea; the voice of the Lord is mighty in operation: the voice of the Lord is a glorious voice.
- The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedar-trees: yea, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Libanus.
- He maketh them also to skip like a calf: Libanus also, and Sirion, like a young unicorn.
- The voice of the Lord divideth the flames of fire; the voice of the Lord shaketh the wilderness: yea, the Lord shaketh the wilderness of Cades.
- The voice of the Lord maketh the hinds to bring forth young, and discovereth the thick bushes: in his temple doth every man speak of his honour.
- The Lord sitteth above the water-flood: and the Lord remaineth a King for ever.
- The Lord shall give strength unto his people: the Lord shall give his people the blessing of peace.
