The Epistle: A Reading ..... from the First Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle, to the' Thessalonians: '" Brethren: I would not have you to be ignorant concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him. For this we say unto you by the Word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (J Thess . 4: 13 - 18) W. Thanks be to God. The Gradual: Rest eternal grant unto them, 0 Lord; and may Light Perpetual upon them. yr.

Through Christ Our Lord. Whose Passion for the immortal and peacefully resting souls we celebrate without doubt, for these especially for which Thou hast manifested the grace of a second birth, by the example of Our Lord Jesus Christ have come to be assured of the Resurrection. Surely as Thou hast made that which was not, Thou canst repair that which had been. And Thou hast given us as proofs of the future resurrection not only prophecy and apostolic doctrine, but also the Resurrection of Thy Same Only-Begotten, Our Redeemer, that what hath been pronounced' through prophecies, and passed on through the Apostles, may be confirmed by . the example of His Resurrection. Through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, _-'_

The following Prose may be chanted at some time during this Liturgy: The Prose: Day of Wrath and doom impending. David's word with Sybil's blending! Hea v'n and Earth in ashes ending! o what fear man's bosom rendeth, When from Heav'n, the Judge descendeth,
On Whose sentence all dependeth! Wondrous sound the trumpeth f1ingeth, Through Earth's sepulchres it ringeth, All before the Throne it bringeth. Death is struck, and nature quaking, All creation is awaking, To its Judge an answer making. Lo! The Book exactly worded, Wherein all hath been recorded; Thence shaH Judgment be awarded. When the Judge His Seat attaineth, And each hidden deed arraigneth, Nothing unaveng'd remalneth .. Wh~t shall I, frail man, be pleading! Who for me be interceding, . When the Just are jnercy needing? King of Majesty Tremendous, Who dost free salvation send us, Fount of Pity, then befriend us! Think, Kind Jesus!-My salvation Caus'd Thy Wondrous Incarnation; Leave me not to reprobation. Faint and Weary Thou hast sought me, On the Cross of suff'ring bought me; ShaH such grace be vainly brought me? Righteous Judge! For sin's pollution Grant Thy Gift of Absolution, E'er That Day of Retribution. Guilty, now I pour my moaning, All my shame with anguish owning; Spare, 0 God, Thy suppJiant groaning! Through thjl sinful woman shriven, Through the dying thief forgiven, Thou to me a hope hath given. Worthless are my prayers and sighing, Yea, Good Lord, in grace complying, Rescue me from fires undying. With Thy sheep a place provide me, From the goats afar divide me, To Thy Right Hand do Thou guide me. When the wicked are confounded, Doom'd to flames of woe unbounded, CaH me with Thy Saints surrounded. Low I kneel with heart submission; See, like ashes, my contrition! Help me in my last condition! Ah! That Day of tears and mourning! From the dust of Earth returning, Man for Judgment must prepare him; Spare, 0 God, in mercy spare him. Lord, AH-Pitying, Jesus Blest, Grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen. The Communion: To them in whose memory the Flesh of Christ is Receiv-ed, Lord, rest everlasting. y. And may Light Perpetual shine upon them. To them in whose memory the Blood of Christ is Receiv-ed, Lord, rest everlasting. The Postcommunions: The Lord be with you. grant, grant, 0 0
