Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
whose days are without end
and whose mercies are beyond counting,
keep us mindful that life is short and the hour of death is unknown.
Let your Spirit guide our days on earth
in the ways of holiness and justice,
that we may serve you in union with the whole Church,
sure in faith, strong in hope, perfected in love.
And when our earthly journey is ended,
lead us rejoicing into your kingdom,
where you live for ever and ever.
