    ❖ ORDER OF SERVICE ❖

    The people’s responses are in bold

    We worship today according to the appointed order for Morning Prayer: Rite Two, beginning on page 75 of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP).

    OPEN VOLUNTARY Land of Rest (Appalachian tune)

    Setting by Wilbur Held OPENING SENTENCE BCP 78

    Please stand as the officiant begins the service with one or more sentences of Scripture. Officiant At my vindication I shall see your face; when I awake, I shall be satisfied, beholding your likeness. Psalm 17:16 Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:2 CONFESSION OF SIN BCP 79-80

    The Officiant says to the people

    Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.

    Officiant and People together, all kneeling

    Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

    PSALM 17:1-7,16 Exaudi, Domine

    1 Hear my plea of innocence, O LORD; give heed to my / cry;* listen to my prayer, which does not / come from lying lips.

    2 Let my vindication come forth from your / presence;* let your eyes be / fixed on justice.

    3 Weigh my heart, summon me by / night,* melt me down; you will find no im/purity in me.

    4 I give no offense with my mouth as / others do;* I have heeded the / words of your lips.

    5 My footsteps hold fast to the ways of / your law;* in your paths my feet / shall not stumble.

    6 I call upon you, O God, for you will / answer me;* incline your ear to / me and hear my words.

    7 Show me your marvelous loving-/kindness,* O Savior of those who take refuge at your right hand from those who rise / up against them.

    16 But at my vindication I shall / see your face;* when I awake, I shall be satisfied, behold/ing your likeness.

    Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit* as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Please be seated for the reading.

    THE LESSONS BCP 84

    A READING FROM THE BOOK OF GENESIS Genesis 32:22-31

    The same night Jacob got up and took his two wives, his two maids, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. He took them and sent them across the stream, and likewise everything that he had. Jacob was left alone; and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. When the man saw that he did not prevail against Jacob, he struck him on the hip socket; and Jacob’s hip was put out of joint as he wrestled with him. Then he said, “Let me go, for the day is breaking.” But Jacob said, “I will not let you go, unless you bless me.” So he said to him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Jacob.” Then the man said, “You shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, for you have striven with God and with humans, and have prevailed.” Then Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name.” But he said, “Why is it that you ask my name?” And there he blessed him. So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved.” The sun rose upon him as he passed Penuel, limping because of his hip.

    HYMN #638 Come, O thou Traveler unknown (vv 5-6) (Vernon)

    Sung by all.

    1. Come, O Thou Traveler unknown, Whom still I hold but cannot see; My company before is gone, And I am left alone with Thee; With Thee all night I mean to stay, And wrestle till the break of day.

    2. I need not tell Thee who I am, My sin and misery declare; Thyself hast called me by my name, Look on Thy hands, and read it there; But who, I ask Thee, who art Thou? Tell me Thy name, and tell me now.

    3. In vain Thou strugglest to get free; I never will unloose my hold; Art Thou the Man that died for me? The secret of Thy love unfold; Wrestling, I will not let Thee go, Till I Thy name, Thy nature know.

    A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE ROMANS Romans 9:1-5

    I am speaking the truth in Christ-- I am not lying; my conscience confirms it by the Holy Spirit-- I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according to the flesh. They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, comes the Messiah, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen.

    Reader The Word of the Lord. People Thanks be to God.

    HYMN #638 Come, O thou Traveler unknown (vv 4-6) (Vernon) Sung by all.

    4. Yield to me now, for I am weak,

    But confident in self-despair;

    Speak to my heart, in blessings speak,

    Be conquered by my instant prayer;

    Speak, or Thou never hence shalt move,

    And tell me if Thy name be Love.

    Please seated for the reading.

    6. Lame as I am, I take the prey;

    Hell, earth and sin, with ease o’ercome.

    I leap for joy, pursue my way,

    And, as a bounding hart, I run,

    Through all eternity to prove

    Thy nature and Thy name is Love.

    5. ’Tis Love! ’tis Love! Thou diedst for me,

    I hear Thy whisper in my heart;

    The morning breaks, the shadows flee:
