An Order for Compline


The Officiant begins

The Lord Almighty grant us a peaceful night and a perfect
end. Amen.

Officiant

Our help is in the Name of the Lord;

People

The maker of heaven and earth.

The Officiant may then say

Let us confess our sins to God.

Silence may be kept.

Officiant and People

Almighty God, our heavenly Father:
We have sinned against you,
through our own fault,
in thought, and word, and deed,
and in what we have left undone.
For the sake of your Son our Lord Jesus Christ,
forgive us all our offenses;
and grant that we may serve you
in newness of life,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.


Officiant

May the Almighty God grant us forgiveness of all our sins,
and the grace and comfort of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The Officiant then says

 

O God, make speed to save us.

People

O Lord, make haste to help us.


Officiant and People

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.

Alleluia. Alleluia.

 

The Readings

Psalm:

Psalm 22:18-27

18Be not far away, O Lord; *
  you are my strength; hasten to help me.
19Save me from the sword, *
  my life from the power of the dog.

20Save me from the lion’s mouth, *
  my wretched body from the horns of wild bulls.
21I will declare your Name to my brethren; *
  in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.

22Praise the Lord, you that fear him; *
  stand in awe of him, O offspring of Israel;
  all you of Jacob’s line, give glory.
23For he does not despise nor abhor the poor in their poverty;
 neither does he hide his face from them; *
  but when they cry to him he hears them.

24My praise is of him in the great assembly; *
  I will perform my vows in the presence of those who worship him.
25The poor shall eat and be satisfied,
 and those who seek the Lord shall praise him: *
  “May your heart live for ever!”

26All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, *
  and all the families of the nations shall bow before him.
27For kingship belongs to the Lord; *
  he rules over the nations.

 

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.

 

Isaiah 65:1-9

A Reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

1I was ready to be sought out by those who did not ask,
  to be found by those who did not seek me.
 I said, “Here I am, here I am,”
  to a nation that did not call on my name.
2I held out my hands all day long
  to a rebellious people,
 who walk in a way that is not good,
  following their own devices;
3a people who provoke me
  to my face continually,
 sacrificing in gardens
  and offering incense on bricks;
4who sit inside tombs,
  and spend the night in secret places;
 who eat swine’s flesh,
  with broth of abominable things in their vessels;
5who say, “Keep to yourself,
  do not come near me, for I am too holy for you.”
 These are a smoke in my nostrils,
  a fire that burns all day long.
6See, it is written before me:
  I will not keep silent, but I will repay;
 I will indeed repay into their laps
  7their iniquities and their ancestors’ iniquities together,
 says the Lord;
 because they offered incense on the mountains
  and reviled me on the hills,
 I will measure into their laps
  full payment for their actions.
8Thus says the Lord:
 As the wine is found in the cluster,
  and they say, “Do not destroy it,
  for there is a blessing in it,”
 so I will do for my servants’ sake,
  and not destroy them all.
9I will bring forth descendants from Jacob,
  and from Judah inheritors of my mountains;
 my chosen shall inherit it,
  and my servants shall settle there.

 

Reader

The Word of the Lord.

People

Thanks be to God.

 

 

Meditation

Review the day with gratitude.

Walk through your day in the presence of God and note its joys and delights. Focus on the day’s gifts. Look at the work you did, the people you interacted with. What did you receive from these people? What did you give them? Pay attention to small things—the food you ate, the sights you saw, and other seemingly small pleasures. God is in the details.

What are you grateful for today?

 

The Prayers

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

 

Officiant and People

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

 

Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory,

for ever and ever. Amen.

 

 

 

Officiant

Lord, hear our prayer;

People

And let our cry come to you.

Officiant

Collect

O Lord, make us have perpetual love and reverence for your holy Name, for you never fail to help and govern those whom you have set upon the sure foundation of your loving-kindness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Be our light in the darkness, O Lord, and in your great mercy
defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the
love of your only Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or
weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who
sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless
the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the
joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.

 

Silence

Intercessions and thanksgivings may be offered

 

A Prayer of St. Chrysostom (BCP p. 126)

Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen.

 

The service concludes with the Song of Simeon with this Antiphon, which
is sung or said by all

Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake
we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.


Lord, you now have set your servant free *
to go in peace as you have promised;

For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, *
whom you have prepared for all the world to see:

A Light to enlighten the nations, *
and the glory of your people Israel.

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.

All repeat the Antiphon

Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping; that awake
we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace
.

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Officiant

Let us bless the Lord.

People

Thanks be to God.

The Officiant concludes

The almighty and merciful Lord, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
bless us and keep us. Amen.
