A Prayer for the Dead
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord, Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears attend to the voice of my supplication.
If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt, Lord, who could survive? But there is forgiveness in you, and we revere you for it.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in His word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with Him is plenteous redemption. And He will redeem Israel from all iniquities.
Eternal rest grant unto N., O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon(him, her, them). May (he, she, they) rest in peace. Amen.
O Lord, hear my prayer. And let my cry come to you.
O God, creator and redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of your departed servants the forgiveness of all their sins.
Through my prayer, may they obtain the pardon they have always desired. Amen
