Compline Wednesday 10th June 2020 Ty Teilo liturgy

Tonight we shall use the liturgy, for Night Prayer’ which was compiled for use in the chapel in Ty Teilo, one-time Llandaff Diocesan day retreat house by Rev Peter Leonard, Kevin Cecil and Reader Mrs Penny Snowden. We are grateful to be able to use and share it.



PRAYER

I have seen the sun break through

to illuminate a small field

for a while, and gone my way

and forgotten it. But that was the

pearl of great price, the one field that had

treasure in it. I realise now

that I must give all that I have

to possess it. Life is not hurrying

on to a receding future, nor hankering after

an imagined past. It is the turning

aside like Moses to the miracle

of the lit bush, to a brightness

that seemed as transitory as your youth

once, but is the eternity that awaits you.

R. S. Thomas.

In the night when unnamed monsters roam

your grace I know that you are with me.

Your light will shine in me like a candle flame against the dark.

And by this light the lion will have no substance

It’s roar only a loud noise in the wind - an empty shadow.

‘In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength‘ Isaiah 30:16

Song: Heart of Peace

The Heart of peace to save the day

Reach for heaven made whole again.

In returning God will give you rest

Within the quietness his love will be there.

God from heaven to earth comes down

The breath of life the Stars the Son.

In the dawning hear a voiceless sound

Within Jesus, God to earth come down.

The word of God, call my name

The breath of life restores again,

In returning God will give you rest

Within the quietness his love will be there.

God to Earth come down

In life, in hope, in love.

God to earth come down

Bring life, bring hope, bring love (repeat)

Confession

‘I said, “O will confess my transgressions to the Lord”, and you forgave the guilt of my sin. Therefore let all who are faithful offer prayer to you’.

God our loving parent:

we come to you in this quiet hour

returning to where we find true rest and peace;

We are sorry for all that we have done

or failed to do today

that is not according to your purpose in us.

We ask the assurance of your merciful forgiveness

that, accepted afresh,

We may rest tonight

and arise in your strength

to serve you in quietness and in trust:

we ask this for our Saviour’s sake,

Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Absolution

‘As surely as the tide will ebb and flow

whether in the calmness of summer or the turmoil of winter

the hopeful promise of Spring or the regretful pull of the autumn so I am with you’

God forgive us all our sins and make us anew in His image


Psalm 4 (NRSV)

Answer me when I call, O God of my right! You gave me room when I was in distress. Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer. How long, you people, shall my honor suffer shame? How long will you love vain words, and seek after lies?Selah But know that the Lord has set apart the faithful for himself; the Lord hears when I call to him. When you are disturbed,[a] do not sin; ponder it on your beds, and be silent.Selah Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in the Lord. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good! Let the light of your face shine on us, O Lord!” You have put gladness in my heart more than when their grain and wine abound. I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety.

The word


‘Come let us return to the Lord: for it is he that has torn, and he will heal us; he has struck down, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live by him. Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord; his appearing is as sure as the dawn; he will come to us like the showers, like the spring rains that water the earth Hoses 6:1-3

silence

Hear what the spirit is saying to the church.

Thanks be to God


God of every hour, our guide and comfort through the day, our guardian and keeper through the night; be close to us now as we prepare to leave this day behind and enter into your rest.

This is the message we have received and proclaim to one another

God is light and in him is no darkness found

If we walk in the light with him we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus washes us clean of imperfection

Jesus is the eternal life that was with the Father

In him our joy is complete 1John1

God of every hour, our guide and comfort through the day, our guardian and keeper through the night; be close to us now as we leave this day behind and enter into your rest.


The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

The prayers

Your Lord, are with us in this place

Your presence fills it

Your presence is peace

Your Lord, are with us in this place

Your presence fills it

Your presence awakens joy

Your Lord, are with us in this place

Your presence fills it

Your presence deepens trust

Your Lord, are with us in this place

Your presence fills it

Your presence brings hope

Open our eyes, Lord

that we may see your presence

that is all about us.

Open our ears, Lord

that we may hear your voice

that is quiet yet ever near.

Open our heart, Lord

that we may feel your love

close and real in each encounter.

Open our senses, Lord

make us aware of your power,

your presence in each hour
