Prayer for The Dead


In your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust our brothers and sisters.

In this life you embraced them with your tender love;

deliver them now from every evil and bid them eternal rest.

The old order has passed away: welcome them into paradise,

where there will be no sorrow, no weeping or pain,

but fullness of peace and joy with your Son and the Holy

Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
