An Order for Compline

From England

The Lord almighty grant us a quiet night and a perfect end.

All Amen.

Our help is in the name of the Lord

All who made heaven and earth.

Silence

Prayer of Penitence

All Most merciful God,

we confess to you,

before the whole company of heaven and one another,

that we have sinned in thought, word and deed

and in what we have failed to do.

Forgive us our sins,

heal us by your Spirit

and raise us to new life in Christ. Amen.

O God, make speed to save us.

All O Lord, make haste to help us.

All Glory to the Father and to the Son

and to the Holy Spirit;

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.

Alleluia.

 

Before the ending of the day,

Creator of the world, we pray

That you, with steadfast love, would keep

Your watch around us while we sleep.

From evil dreams defend our sight,

From fears and terrors of the night;

Tread underfoot our deadly foe

That we no sinful thought may know.

O Father, that we ask be done

Through Jesus Christ, your only Son;

And Holy Spirit, by whose breath

Our souls are raised to life from death.

Psalm 4

1 Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness;

you set me at liberty when I was in trouble;

have mercy on me and hear my prayer.

2 How long will you nobles dishonour my glory;

how long will you love vain things and seek after falsehood?

3 But know that the Lord has shown me his marvellous kindness;

when I call upon the Lord, he will hear me.

4 Stand in awe, and sin not;

commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness

and put your trust in the Lord.

6 There are many that say, ‘Who will show us any good?’

Lord, lift up the light of your countenance upon us.

7 You have put gladness in my heart,

more than when their corn and wine and oil increase.

8 In peace I will lie down and sleep,

for it is you Lord, only, who make me dwell in safety.

All Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; 

as it was in the beginning is now

and shall be for ever. Amen.
