Night Hymn

Confession and Forgiveness

The leader invites the assembly into the confession.

(The congregation part is in bold)

 

 

I confess to God Almighty,

before the whole company of heaven,

and to you, my brothers and sisters,

that I have sinned by my own fault

in thought, word, and deed.

I pray God Almighty to have mercy on me,

forgive me all my sins,

and bring me to everlasting life.

 

Almighty and merciful God

grant you healing, pardon,

and forgiveness of all your sins. Amen.

Psalmody

Psalm 46,   Tone 7

God is our ref- | uge and strength,
a very present | help in trouble.

 

 

Therefore we will not fear, though the | earth be moved,
and though the mountains shake in the depths | of the sea;

 

 

though its waters | rage and foam,
and though the mountains tremble | with its tumult.

 

 

There is a river whose streams make glad the cit- | y of God,
the holy habitation of | the Most High.

 

 

God is in the midst of the city; it shall | not be shaken;
God shall help it at the | break of day.

 

 

The nations rage, and the | kingdoms shake;
God speaks, and the earth | melts away. 

 

 

The Lord of | hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob | is our stronghold.

 

 

Come now, regard the works | of the Lord,
what desolations God has brought up- | on the earth;

 

 

behold the one who makes war to cease in | all the world;
who breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, and burns the | shields with fire.

 

 

“Be still, then, and know that | I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted | in the earth.”

 

 

The Lord of | hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob | is our stronghold. 

 

 

Come now, regard the works | of the Lord,
what desolations God has brought up- | on the earth;

 

 

behold the one who makes war to cease in | all the world;
who breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, and burns the | shields with fire.

 

 

“Be still, then, and know that | I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted | in the earth.”

 

 

The Lord of | hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob | is our stronghold. 

 

 

Lead me, Guide me    768

Lead me, guide me, 

along the way,

For if you lead me, 

I cannot stray.

Lord, let me walk 

each day with thee.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

I am weak and I need the strength and power

To help me over 

my weakest hour.

Help me through the darkness thy face to see. 

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

Lead me, guide me, 

along the way,

For if you lead me, 

I cannot stray.

Lord, let me walk 

each day with thee.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

Help me tread in 

the paths of righteousness, 

be my aid when 

Satan and sin oppress.

I am putting all my trust in thee.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

Lead me, guide me, 

along the way,

For if you lead me, 

I cannot stray.

Lord, let me walk 

each day with thee.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

I am lost if you take

 your hand from me, 

I am blind without 

thy light to see.

Lord, just always let me

 thy servant be.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.

Lead me, guide me, 

along the way,

For if you lead me, 

I cannot stray.

Lord, let me walk 

each day with thee.

Lead me, O Lord, lead me.
