SELECTIONS FROM VESPERS

Verses from Psalm 103

(Sung at Vigil Service)

Bless the Lord, O my soul. Blessed art Thou, O Lord. O Lord my God, Thou art very great. Blessed art Thou, O Lord. Thou art clothed with praise and splendour. Blessed art Thou, O Lord. On the mountains waters stand. How marvellous are Thy works, O Lord! The waters flow between the mountains. How marvellous are Thy works, O Lord! Thou hast made all things in wisdom. Glory to Thee, O Lord, Who hast made them all.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Glory to Thee, O Lord, Who hast made them all.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Glory to Thee, O God. (Thrice)

Verses from the lst Kathisma

Blessed is the man who has not walked by the counsel of the ungodly. Alleluia (Thrice).
For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, and the way of the ungodly shall perish. Alleluia (Thrice).
Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice in Him with trembling. Alleluia (Thrice).
Blessed are all who put their trust in Him. Alleluia (Thrice).
Arise, O Lord: save me, O my God. Alleluia (Thrice).
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Glory to Thee, O God (Thrice).

Verses from Psalms 140 and 141

Lord, I have cried to Thee, hear me. Hear me, O Lord. Lord, I have cried to Thee, hear me. Attend to the voice of my prayer, when I cry to Thee. Hear me, O Lord. Let my prayer go straight to Thee like incense, and let the lifting up of my hands be an evening sacrifice. Hear me, O Lord.

Vesper Song to the Son of God

Glad Light of the holy glory of the immortal, heavenly, holy and blessed Father, Jesus Christ. Now that we have come to the setting of the sun and have seen the evening light, we praise God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is meet at all times to praise Thee with happy voices, O Son of God and Giver of Life. Therefore the world glorifies Thee.

Prayer at the Approach of Sundown

Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us this evening without sin. Blessed art Thou, O Lord, the God of our Fathers, and praised and glorified is Thy name for ever. Amen. May Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, as our trust is in Thee. Blessed art Thou, O Lord; teach me Thy rights. Blessed art Thou, O Master; grant me to understand Thy rights. Blessed art Thou, O Holy One; enlighten me by Thy rights. Thy mercy, O Lord, is eternal. Despise not the works of Thy hands. To Thee belongs praise, to Thee belongs song, to Thee glory belongs, to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

Prayer of Saint Symeon

Now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, O Lord, according to Thy word. For my eyes have seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared in the sight of all peoples, the light of revelation for the Gentiles, and the glory of Thy people Israel.

Virgin Mother of God, rejoice! Mary  full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, For thou hast borne the Saviour of our souls. (Bow)

In Lent, also these Troparia:

Glory: O Baptizer of Christ, remember us all, that we may be delivered from our sins, for to thee grace has been given to intercede for us. (Bow)

Now and ever: Holy Apostles and all Saints, pray for us, that we may be delivered from dangers, sorrows and afflictions; for we have obtained you as fervent intercessors with the Saviour. (Bow)

Under thy tender compassion we run, O Mother of God. Reject not our prayer in our trouble, but deliver us from harm, O only pure, only blessed one. (Twice).
