A Prayer for Surviving Friends
that while we lament the departure of Thy servant,
we may always remember that
we are most certainly to follow him.
Give us grace to prepare for the last hour
by a good and holy life,
that we may not be taken unprepared by sudden death,
but may be ever on the watch, that,
when Thou shalt call,
we may go forth to meet the Bridegroom,
and enter with Him into glory everlasting.
Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.
O most wise and merciful Lord,
Who hast ordained this life
as a passage to the future,
confining our repentance to the time of our pilgrimage
and reserving for hereafter the state of punishment and
vouchsafee to us who are yet alive,
and have still the opportunity to reconciliation with Thee,
the grace so to watch over all our actions,
and to correct every slightest wandering
from the true way of heaven,
that we may not be surprised with our sins uncancelled,
or our duties unfulfilled;
but when our bodies shall go down in the grave,
our souls may ascend to Thee,
and dwell with Thee forever
in the mansions of eternal bliss.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord and only Saviour.
