The Memory of the Departed :
THE CONSOLATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT OF
AND, ABOVE ALL,
To the Praise of God,
EVEN THE FATHER OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST ;
THE FATHER OF MERCIES, AND
THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT ;
THAT WE MAY BE ABLE TO COMFORT THEM WHICH ARE IN ANY TROUBLE,
BY THE COMFORT WHEREWITH WE OURSELVES ARE COMFORTED OF GOD.
ALMIGHTY God, with whom do live the spirits of those
who depart hence in the Lord, and with whom the souls of the faithful, after they are delivered from the burden of the flesh, are in joy and felicity; We give thee hearty thanks for the good examples of all those thy servants, who, having finished their course in faith, do now rest from their labours. And we beseech thee, that we, with all those who are departed in the true faith of thy holy Name, may have our perfect consummation and bliss, both in body and soul, in thy eternal and everlasting glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
