CHORAL EVENSONG Peterjan van der Wal (Brielle) minister Nick Couchman (England) reader Marco P. ’t Hart (Brielle) organist Peter Leech (North Somerset) choirmaster Evensong Choir 22 February 2015 Quadragesima (1st Sunday of Lent) ¶ Stand Clergy and Choirmaster enter ¶ Sit Welcome Organ play: Prière – César Franck (1822-1890) THE INTROIT Joseph Barnby ( 1838-1896) Choir: Sweet is Thy mercy, Lord! Before Thy mercy seat, my soul adoring pleads Thy word, and owns Thy mercy sweet. Where’er Thy name is blest, where’er Thy people meet, there I delight in Thee to rest, and find Thy mercy sweet. Light Thou our weary way, our wand’ring feet; that while we stay on earth we may still find Thy mercy sweet. Thus shall the heav’nly host hear all our songs repeat, to Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; Thy mercy sweet, our joy, thy mercy sweet. Amen. Minister: Dearly beloved brethren, the Scripture moveth us in sundry places to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloke them before the face of almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with a humble, lowly, penitent and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart and humble voice unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying after me. THE GENERAL CONFESSION Minister and People: Almighty and most merciful Father, We have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep, We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, We have offended against thy holy laws, We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, And we have done those things which we ought not to have done, And there is no health in us: But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us, miserable offenders; Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults, Restore thou them that are penitent, According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesus our Lord: And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen. THE ABSOLUTION Minister: Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness and live; and hath given power and commandment to his Ministers, to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the Absolution and Remission of their sins: He pardoneth and absolveth all them that truly repent and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him which we do at this present, and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. People Amen. THE LORD’S PRAYER Minister and People: Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done; In earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation; But deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen. THE FIRST LESSON Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 THE PRECES Thomas Ebdon (1738-1811) ¶ Stand Minister: O Lord, open thou our lips; Choir And our mouth shall shew forth thy praise. Minister: O God, make speed to save us; Choir: O Lord, make haste to help us. Minister: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; Choir: As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be; world without end. Amen. Minister: Praise ye the Lord. Choir: The Lord’s name be praised. PSALM 108 Joseph Barnby (1838-1896) Choir: 1. O God, my heart is ready: I will sing praise with the best member that I have. 2. Awake, thou lute and harp: I myself will awake right early. 3. I will give thanks unto thee O Lord, among the people: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. 4. For Thy mercy is greater than the heavens: and Thy truth reacheth unto the clouds. 5. Set up thyself O God above the heavens: and Thy glory above all the earth. 6. That Thy beloved may be delivered: let Thy right hand save them and hear thou me. 7. God hath spoken in his holiness: I will rejoice therefore and divide Sichem, and mete out the valley of Succoth: 8. Gilead is mine and Manasses is mine: Ephraim also is the strength of my head. 9. Judah is my law giver Moab is my wash-pot: over Edom will I cast out my shoe, upon Philistia will I triumph. 10. Who will lead me into the strong city: and who will bring me into Edom? 11. Hast not thou forsaken us O God: and wilt not thou, O God go forth with our hosts? 12. O help us against the enemy: for vain is the help of man. 13.Through God we shall do great acts: and it is he that shall tread down our enemies. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be: World without end, Amen. THE OFFICE HYMN Now is the healing time decreed Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Choir and People: 1. Now is the healing time decreed. For sins of heart and word and deed. When we in humble fear record the wrong that we have done the Lord. 2. Who, always merciful and good, has borne so long our way-ward mood, not cut us off unsparingly in our so great iniquity. 3. Therefore with fasting and with prayer, our secret sorrow we declare, with all good striving seek his face, and lowly hearted plead for grace. 4. Cleanse us, O Lord, from every stain, help us the gifts of grace to gain, till with the angels, linked in love, joyful we tread thy courts above. 5. We pray thee, holy Trinity, one God, unchanging unity, that we from this our abstinence may reap the fruits of penitence. Amen. ¶ Sit MAGNIFICAT James Nares (1715-1783) Choir: My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me and holy is his Name. And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations. He hath shewed strength with his arm, he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel. As he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. THE SECOND LESSON Romans 5:12-19 NUNC DIMITTIS James Nares (1715-1783) Choir: Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation which thou hast prepared before the face of all people. To be a light to lighten the Gentiles and to be the glory of thy people Israel. Glory be the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. ¶ Stand THE APOSTLES’ CREED Minister and People: I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy Catholick Church; the Communion of Saints; the Forgiveness of sins; the Resurrection of the body, and the Life everlasting. Amen. ¶ Sit THE RESPONSES Thomas Ebdon (1738-1811) Minister: The Lord be with you; Choir: And with thy spirit. Minister: Let us pray.

THE COLLECT FOR Quadragesima Minister: Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness, and was tempted as we are, yet without sin: give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit; and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Choir: Amen. THE SECOND COLLECT Minister: O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed: Give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give; that both our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments, and also that by thee we being defended from the fear of our enemies may pass our time in rest and quietness; through the merits of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Choir: Amen. THE THIRD COLLECT, FOR AID AGAINST ALL PERILS Minister: Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Choir: Amen. THE SERMON THE ANTHEM Out of the deep have I called unto Thee John Alcock sr. (1715-1806) Choir: Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord. Lord, hear my voice. O let thine ears consider well the voice of my complaint: For if thou, Lord, should be extreme to mark what is done amiss, O Lord, who may abide it? But there is mercy with thee, therefore shalt thou be feared. THE PRAYERS: FREE PRAYERS A PRAYER OF SAINT CHRYSOSTOM Minister: Almighty God, who hast given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise, that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests: Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting. People: Amen. THE GRACE Minister: The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost, be with us all evermore. People: Amen. ¶ Stand THE HYMN When I survey the woundrous Cross Isaac Watts (1674-1748) /Harmony Webbe’s Collection of Psalmtunes Choir and people: 1.When I survey the wondrous Cross, on which the Prince of glory died, my richest gain I count but loss, and poor contempt on all my pride. 2. Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast save in the death of Christ my God; all the vain things that charm me most, I sacrifice them to his blood. 3. See from his head, his hands, his feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down; did ever such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown. 4. His dying crimson like a robe, spreads o’er his body on the Tree; then am I dead to all the globe, and all the globe is dead to me. 5. Were the whole realm of nature mine, that were a present far too small; love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all. THE BLESSING Minister: The Lord bless you, and keep you: the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious unto you: the Lord lift up the light of his countenance upon you, and give you peace, now and for evermore. People: Amen. THE DISMISSAL Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace ( Samuel Sebastian Wesley 1810-1876) Choir Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee. The darkness is no darkness with thee, but the night is as clear as the day. The darkness and the light to thee are both alike. God is light and in him is no darkness at all. O let my soul live, and it shall praise thee. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory for ever more. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee. Organ play: Postludium – Moritz Brosig (1815-1887) Clergy and Choirmaster leave SCHRIFTLEZINGEN Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 (NBV) Genesis 2:15 God, de HEER, bracht de mens dus in de tuin van Eden, om die te bewerken en erover te waken. 16 Hij hield hem het volgende voor: ‘Van alle bomen in de tuin mag je eten, 17 maar niet van de boom van de kennis van goed en kwaad; wanneer je daarvan eet, zul je onherroepelijk sterven.’ 3:1 Van alle in het wild levende dieren die God, de HEER, gemaakt had, was de slang het sluwst. Dit dier vroeg aan de vrouw: ‘Is het waar dat God gezegd heeft dat jullie van geen enkele boom in de tuin mogen eten?’ 2 ‘We mogen de vruchten van alle bomen eten, ‘antwoordde de vrouw, 3 ‘behalve die van de boom in het midden van de tuin. God heeft ons verboden van de vruchten van die boom te eten of ze zelfs maar aan te raken; doen we dat toch, dan zullen we sterven.’ 4 ‘Jullie zullen helemaal niet sterven, ‘zei de slang. 5 ‘Integendeel, God weet dat jullie de ogen zullen opengaan zodra je daarvan eet, dat jullie dan als goden zullen zijn en kennis zullen hebben van goed en kwaad.’ 6 De vrouw keek naar de boom. Zijn vruchten zagen er heerlijk uit, ze waren een lust voor het oog, en ze vond het aanlokkelijk dat de boom haar wijsheid zou schenken. Ze plukte een paar vruchten en at ervan. Ze gaf ook wat aan haar man, die bij haar was, en ook hij at ervan. 7 Toen gingen hun beiden de ogen open en merkten ze dat ze naakt waren. Daarom regen ze vijgenbladeren aan elkaar en maakten er lendenschorten van. LESSONS (English version) Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 (King James Version 21th Century) Genesis 2:15 And the LORD God took the man and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it. For in the day that thou eatest thereof, thou shalt surely die." 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, "Yea, hath God said, ‘Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?" 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, ‘Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.’" 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, "Ye shall not surely die; 5 for God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof and ate, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he ate. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves things to gird about. Romeinen 5:12-19 (NBV) Romans 5:12-19 (King James Version 21th Century) 5:12 Door één mens is de zonde in de wereld gekomen en door de zonde de dood, en zo is de dood voor ieder mens gekomen, want ieder mens heeft gezondigd. 13 Er was al zonde in de wereld voordat de wet er was; alleen, zonder wet wordt er van de zonde geen rekening bijgehouden. 14 Toch heerste de dood in de tijd van Adam tot Mozes over alle mensen, ook al begingen ze met hun zonden niet dezelfde overtreding als Adam. Nu is Adam de voorafbeelding van hem die komen zou. 15 Maar de genade gaat zijn overtreding verre te boven. Door de overtreding van één mens moesten alle mensen sterven, maar de genade die God aan alle mensen schenkt door die ene mens, Jezus Christus, is veel overvloediger. 16 Dit geschenk gaat het gevolg van de zonde van één mens verre te boven, want die ene overtreding heeft tot veroordeling geleid, maar de genade die na talloze overtredingen geschonken werd, heeft tot vrijspraak geleid. 17 Als de dood heeft geheerst door de overtreding van één mens, is het des te zekerder dat allen die de genade en de vrijspraak in zo’n overvloed hebben ontvangen, zullen heersen in het eeuwige leven, dankzij die ene mens, Jezus Christus. 18 Kortom, zoals de overtreding van één enkel mens ertoe heeft geleid dat allen werden veroordeeld, zo zal de rechtvaardigheid van één enkel mens ertoe leiden dat allen worden vrijgesproken en daardoor zullen leven. 19 Zoals door de ongehoorzaamheid van één mens alle mensen zondaars werden, zo zullen door de gehoorzaamheid van één mens alle mensen rechtvaardigen worden. 5:12 Therefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, so death passed onto all men, for all have sinned. 13 For until the law, sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the similitude of Adam’s transgression, he being the figure of Him that was to come. 15 But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one Man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many. 16 And not as it was by one who sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses unto justification. 17 For if by one man’s offense death reigned by one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by One, Jesus Christ. 18 Therefore as by the offense of one, judgment to condemnation came upon all men, even so by the righteousness of One, the free gift unto justification of life came upon all men. 19 For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One shall many be made righteous.
