O Lord, open my lips,

Make haste, O God, to deliver me;
    Make haste to help me, O Lord.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
    and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
    is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Praise to You, O Christ, Lamb of our salvation.

Remember your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love,

You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!
    He is their help and their shield.
The Lord has remembered us; he will bless us;
    he will bless the house of Israel; he will bless the house of Aaron;
he will bless those who fear the Lord,
    both the small and the great.
But we will bless the Lord
    from this time forth and forevermore. Praise the Lord!
Glory be to the Father and to the Son

He was delivered for the sins of the people.

Benedictus (the Te Deum is omitted for Lent)

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
    for He has visited, and redeemed His people
and has raised up a horn of salvation for us
    in the house of His servant David,
as He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets,
    who have been since the world began;
that we should be saved from our enemies
    and from the hand of all that hate us;
to perform the mercy promised to our fathers
    and to remember His holy covenant,
the oath that He swore to our forefather Abraham
    to grant us that we,
being delivered out of the hand of our enemies,
    might serve Him without fear,
in holiness and righteousness before Him
    all the days of our life.
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High;
    for you will go before the Lord to prepare His ways;
to give knowledge of salvation to His people
    in the forgiveness of their sins,
through the tender mercy of our God;
    when the days shall dawn upon us from on high
to give light to those who sit in darkness, and in the shadow of death,
    to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son
    and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning,
    is now and will be forever. Amen.

Prayers

Lord, have mercy;
    Christ, have mercy;
Lord, have mercy.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.


Almighty God, because You know that of ourselves we have no strength, keep us both outwardly and inwardly, that we may be defended from all adversities that may happen to the body and from all evil thoughts that may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
    Amen.

Our Father in heaven, be with those who pass through difficult times and know sickness or heartache, loneliness or despair, including those we name in our hearts before You now . . . Heal each one as You know best. Provide for those who lack money, a home or the necessities of life. In every time of testing, teach Your children to hold tightly to You in faith, that in the end they may know the comfort of Your love; through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

    Amen.

O Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, You have safely brought us to the beginning of this day; defend us in the same with Your mighty power and grant that this day we fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger, but that all our doings, being ordered by Your governance, may be righteous in Your sight; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
    Amen.

Benedicamus and Blessing

Let us bless the Lord.
    Thanks be to God.

The grace of our Lord
Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with us all.
    Amen.
