Most merciful Father,
we commend our departed into Your hands.
We are filled with the sure hope
that our departed will rise again on the Last Day
with all who have died in Christ.
We thank You for all the good things
You have given during our departed's earthly life.
O Father, in Your great mercy,
accept our prayer that the Gates of Paradise
may be opened for Your servant.
In our turn, may we, too,
be comforted by the words of faith
until we greet Christ in the glory
and are united with You and our departed.
