Give rest, O Christ, to thy servant with thy Saints:
where sorrow and pain are no more;
neither sighing,
but life everlasting.

Thou only art immortal,
the Creator and Maker of Man:
and we are mortal, formed of the earth,
and unto earth shall we return:
for so thou didst ordain,
when thou createdst me, saying
Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.
All we go down to the dust;
and, weeping o'er the grave, we make our song:
alleluya, alleluya, alleluya.
