A Prayer to Say On the Day of a Person's Death or Burial

O God,

Whose property is always to have mercy and to spare,

we humbly beseech Thee for the soul of Thy servant N...,

which Thou hast this day commanded to depart out of this world,

that Thou wouldst not deliver it into the hands of the enemy,

nor forget it unto the end,

but wouldst command it to be received by the Holy Angels,

and conducted to Paradise, its true country;

that as in Thee it hath hoped and believed,

it may not suffer the pains of hell,

but may take possession of eternal joys.

Through Christ our Lord.
