Stay with Us

Lord Jesus,
stay with us, for it is toward evening
and the day is now far spent.
Be our companion on the way,
kindle our hearts
and awaken hope,
that we may know you
as you are revealed in Scripture
and the breaking of bread;
Grant this for the sake of your love.
Amen.

Canticle: Christ Suffered for You (A Song of Christ the Servant)

The canticle Christ Suffered for You (A Song of Christ the Servant) is used in the Roman Liturgy of the Hours in later Evening Prayer on Sundays in Lent.

Christ suffered for you,
leaving you an example,
so that you might follow in his steps.
He committed no sin,
neither was deceit found in his mouth.
When he was reviled,
he did not revile in return;
when he suffered,
he did not threaten,
but continued entrusting himself
to him who judges justly.
He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree,
that we might die to sin
and live to righteousness.
By his wounds you have been healed.

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.

Canticle: Though He Was in the Form of God (The Song of Christ’s Glory)

The canticle Though He Was in the Form of God (The Song of Christ’s Glory) was used in the Roman Liturgy of the Hours in Evening Prayer on Saturdays.

Though he was in the form of God,
Jesus did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,
being born in the likeness of men.
And being found in human form,
he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death,
even death on a cross.
Therefore God has highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,
so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.

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.

Great and amazing are your deeds,
O Lord God the Almighty!

and glorify your name?
For you alone are holy.
