Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, +

and let light perpetual shine upon them.

A hymn becomes you, O God, in Zion,

and to you shall a vow be repaid in Jerusalem.

Hear my prayer;

to you shall all flesh come.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, +

and let light perpetual shine upon them.

Kyrie eleison;

Christe eleison;

Kyrie eleison

Forgive, O Lord,

the souls of all the faithful departed
from all the chains of their sins
and by the aid to them of your grace
may they deserve to avoid the judgment of revenge,
and enjoy the blessedness of everlasting light.

Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus,
Dominus Deus Sabaoth;
pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna in excelsis.
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem,
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem,
Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona eis requiem sempiternam.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord +:

and let perpetual light shine upon them.

They shall be justified in everlasting memory,

and shall not fear evil.

May everlasting light shine upon them, O Lord,

with your saints forever,

for you are kind.

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, +

and may everlasting light shine upon them.

with your saints forever,

for you are merciful.

Pie Jesu Domine, dona eis requiem.
Dona eis requiem sempiternam.

May Angels lead you into paradise;
may the Martyrs receive you at your coming
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.
May a choir of Angels receive you,
and with Lazarus, who once was poor, may you have eternal rest.

Amen.

Gordon 2004-2011 R.I.P.
