From the Eastern Church

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.

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