Before we end our day, O Lord,  we make this prayer to you,
that you continue in your love to guard your people here.

Give us this night untroubled rest  and build our strength anew,
your Splendour driving far away all darkness of the foe.

Our heart’s desire to love you, Lord, watch over while we sleep,
that when the new day dawns on high we may your praises sing.

All glory be to you, O Christ, who saved mankind from death,
To share with you the Father’s love and in the Spirit live.

 

 

As the day draws to its conclusion we thank the Lord That we have seen his grace
in the lives of people round about us, in our families and friends, our colleagues
and in the wider community.
We ask for the wisdom to be encouraged by his presence
and for forgiveness for our own sins and failings.

Kyrie, eleison.
Christe, e;eison.
Kyrie, eleison.

 

Psalm 102

 The love of the Lord, the everlasting love blesses us all.

My soul give thanks, thanks to the Lord, All my being bless his holy name.
My soul give thanks, thanks to the Lord,
never forget, never forget, never forget all his blessings.
The love of the Lord, the everlasting love blesses us all.

The Lord is compassion and he is love, slow to anger and rich in mercy.
The Lord fills your life with all that is good,
Renewing your strength, crowning your love, Never forget all his blessings.
The love of the Lord, the everlasting love blesses us all.

Glory to the Father, glory to his only Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever, now and for ever. Amen.
The love of the Lord, the everlasting love blesses us all.

 

Reading                                                                                                        1 Peter 5:8-9

Be calm and vigilant, because your enemy the devil is prowling round like a roaring lion,
looking for someone to eat. Stand up to him, strong in faith

 

Responsory

Into your hands, Lord, I commend my spirit.
You have redeemed us, Lord God of truth.
Into your hands, Lord, I commend my spirit.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
Into your hands, Lord, I commend my spirit.

Save us, Lord, while we are awake;
protect us while we sleep
that we may keep watch with Christ
and rest with him in peace.

 

From the Song of Simeon

Lord, let your servant go in peace just as you promised long ago.
For my eyes have seen the salvation
which you prepared
for the nations to see:
a light to enlighten the gentiles
and the glory of your people, Israel.

 

Let us pray

Come to visit us, Lord, this night,
So that by your strength we may rise at daybreak
to rejoice in the resurrection of Christ your Son,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

Blessing

May the almighty Lord grant us a quiet night
and a perfect end.
Amen.
