_ AlmJghty and Everlasting God, we humbly entreat Thy mercy, that Thou wouldest commend the soul of Thy servant (or Thine handmaiden), N _, for whose body we perform the due office of burial, to be laid In the bosom of Thy Patriarch Abraham; that, when the day of recognition shaD arrive, he (or she) may be raised up, at Thy bidding, among the Saints and Thine Elect. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who U_veth and relgneth with Thee, In the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, through all the ages of ages. IV. Amen.

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 shan

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.

(1 Thess . 4: 13 - 18) W. Thanks be to God.

At that time Martha said unto Jesus, "Lord, if Thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.

"But I know, that even now, whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee."

Jesus salth unto her, "Thy brother shall rise again."

Martha salth unto Him, "I know that he shall rise again In the

Resurrection at the Last Day." .

Jesus said unto her, "I am the Resurrection, and the Life; he that believeth

In Me, though he were dead, yet shan he Dve; .

"And whosoever liveth and believeth In Me shall never die. BeDevest thou

this?" .

She salth unto Him, "Yea, Lord; I believe that Thou art theChrbt, the

Son of God, WhIch should come Into the world."

whom we keep ceremony this day, Thou mayest deign to bestow perpetual pardon, and mayest bring back again in the portion of eternal salvation thls soul that was stripped of bodily life by the infections of mortality. Through Whom Angels praise Thy MaJesty, Dominions adore, Powers tremble. The Heavens, and the heavenly Virtues, and the blessed Seraphim unite in one glad voice in extolJing Thee. Together with whom, we pray Thee, that Thou wouldest c-ommand that our voices should have entrance, humbly confessing Thee, and saying:

Or the following Preface may be used in place of that above.

f or a Bish5p, Priest. or any other: •

y. It is very meet and just, 'right and available for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all placesgive thanks unto Thee, 0 Lord, Holy Father, Almighty and Everlasting God. For, although the condltlon of, death that hath been levied upon the human race may sadden our bearts, nevertheless we are uplifted

.. wlfh the hope of the' future immortality by 'the gift of Thy clemency, and, mindful of eternal salvation, we fear to undergo the loss of This Light, for, by the grant of Thy grace, life Is not taken away, but is changed for the better; and the souls that have been freed from the prison-house of bodily slavery shudder at those things which are mortal, when immortal things follow thereafter. Whence' we beg that this Thy servant (or Thine handmaiden), N,. having taken his (or her ) place amidst the dwelling-places of the blessed, may glory in having evaded the difficulties of the f'lesh, and may look forward to the Day of Judgment with confidence in the promise of glorification. Through Christ Our Lord. Through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominions adore, Powers tremble. The Heavens, and the heavenly Virtues, and the blessed Seraphim unite in one glad voice in extolling Thee. Together with whom, we pray Thee, that Thou would est command that our voices should have entrance, humbly confessing Thee, and saying: .

Where night hath put forth none of its darkness, may he (or she) be secure in salvation; may he (or she) rejoice pleased 'in honour, ever about to vanquish, and ever be about to remain in Light. Through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominions. adore, Powers tremble. The Heavens, and the heavenly Virtues, and the blessed Seraphim unite in one glad voice in extolling Thee.

Within the Canon:

The following prayer of the Canon is changed slightly to read as follows:

We beseech Thee, therefore, 0 Lord, graciously to accept This Oblation of our service, Which we offer unto Thee for the resting of the soul of Thy servant (or Thine handmaiden), N., and in Thy devotion grant that, freed from the bonds of mortality, he (or she) may be deemed fit to have a portion among Thy faithful ones. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Or, the following may be used in place of that above:

We beseech Thee, therefore, 0 Lord, graciously to accept This Oblation which we, who suppliantly are beseeching Thy Majesty, offer for the soul of Thy servant (or Thine handmaiden), N., that through the Mysteries of This Sacrament, without Which no-one could be absolved from sins, he (or she) may be deemed fit to obtain unending pardon, and to take his (or her) place amidst the glory of the, Heavenly Realm; and to dispose our days in Thy Peace, bidding us to be delivered from eternal damnation, and to be numbered among the flock of Thine elect. Through Christ Our

Lord. Amee,

Dr, "'the following may be used for a Priest or Bishop in

. We beseech Thee, therefore, 0 Lord, reach out to This Oblation which we bear before Thee for the burial of Thy beloved servant and Priest N., for whom we suppliants pour out prayers to Thy Majesty, that Thou wouldest make him to be accounted among the number of the Priests that are pleasing unto Thee; and to dispose our days in Thy Peace, bidding us to be delivered (rom eternal damnation, and to be numbered among the flock of Thine

elect. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen. .

Or, the following may also be used f or a Priest or Bishop in

place of that above:

Thy servant and .Priest N., and account him among the number of Thy chosen Priests, whom Thou dldst wish' to include among the company of them that constituted the governing of the Apostolic Throne; and to dispose our days In Thy Peace, bidding us to be delivered from eternal damnation, and to be numbered among the flock /ofThine elect.

Ps 113: When Israel went out of Egypt, and the house of

Jacob from among a barbarous people, .

Judea became His }antuary, Israel His dominion. The sea beheld and fled, Jordan turned back.

The mountains skipped like rams, and thehills like lambs

of flocks. -

What aileTh thee, 0 sea, that thou fleddest? And thou Jordan, that thou didst turn back?

Ye mountains, that ye skipped like rams, and ye hills like lambs of flocks?

At the presence of the Lord the earth was shaken, at the

presence of the God of Jacob, •

Who turneth the - rock into pools of waters, and the precipice into fountains of waters.

Not unto us, 0 Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy name give glory, for Thy mercy and Thy truth,

Lest haply the heathen say: Where is their God?

But our God is in heaven and on earth; all things soever He hath willed, He hath done.

The idols of the nations are of-silver and gold, the works of the hands of men.

~.Jbey have a mouth, but shall not speak; eyes have they,

• ari'd shall not see. .

Ears have they, and shall not hear; noses have they" and shall not smell.

Hands they have, and shall not feel; feet have they, and shall not walk; they shall make no sound in their throat.

Let those that make them become like unto them, and all that put their trust in them.

The house of Israel hath hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.

The house of Aaron hath hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.

They that fear the Lord have hoped in the Lord; their helper and defender is He.

The Lord being mindful of us, hath blessed us.

He hath blessed the house of Israel, He hath blessed the

house of Aaron. .

He hath blessed them that fear the Lord, the little with

the great. .

The Lord grant you increase, to you and to your children. Ye are blessed of the Lord, Who made heaven and the earth.

I 'I

~

The heaven of heaven belongeth to the Lord, but the earth He gave unto the sons of men.

Not the dead shall praise Thee, 0 Lord, nor any that go down to hades.

But we the living will bless the Lord from henceforth ari"d for evermore.

Ps. 117: 0 give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, tor His mercy endureth for ever.

Let the house of Israel now say that He is good; for His

mercy endureth for ever. <

Let the house of Aaron now say that He is good, for His • mercy endureth for ever.

Let all that fear the Lord now say that He is good, for His mercy enduret]i for ever.

Out of mine affliction I called upon the Lord, and He heard me and brought me into a broad place.

The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

The Lord is my helper" and I shall look down upon mine

enemies. _ .

It is better to trust in the Lord than to trust in man.

It is better to hope in the Lord than to hope in princes. All the nations compassed me round about, and by the

name of the Lord I warded them off.

Surrounding me they compassed me, and by the name of the Lord I warded them off.

They compassed me about like unto bees around a honeycomb, and they burst into flame like a fire among the thorns, and by the name of the Lord I warded them off.

:I>- was pushed and overturned that I might. fall, and the Lord was quick to help me.

The Lord is my strength and my song, and He is become my salvation.

The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous.

The right hand of the Lord hath wrought strength, the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me, the right hand of the

Lord hath wrought strength. '

I shall not die, but live, and I shall tell of the works of the

Lord. '.

With chastisement hath the Lord chastened me, but He hath not given mre over unto death.

Open unto me the gates of righteousness; I will enter therein and give thanks unto the Lord.

This is the gate of the Lord, the righteous shall enter in

thereat.

I will give thanks unto. Thee, for Thou hast heard me and

art become my salvation.

The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the comer.

This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes. This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us rejoi~

and be glad therein. . .

"so panteth my soul after Thee, 0 God. .

My soul thirsted for God, the mighty, the living; when shall I come, and appear before the face of God?

My tears have been my bread by day and by night, whilst it is said to me daily: Where is thy God?

These things have I remembered, and I poured out my soul' within me, for I shall go to the place of the wondrous tabernacle, even to the house of God, with a voice of rejoicing and thanksgiving, yea, of the sound of them that keep fes- ~ tival.

Why art thou cast down, 0 my soul? And why dost thou disquiet me?

Hope in God, for I will give thanks unto Him; He is the salvation of my countenance, and my God.

Within me my soul hath been troubled; therefore will I remember Thee from the land of Jordan and Hermoniem,

from the little mountain. ..

Deep calleth unto deep, at the voice of Thy cataracts; all .Thy:,uillows and Thy waves have passed over me.

By day the Lord will command His mercy, and by night His ode shall be with me, my prayer unto the God of my life.

I will say unto God: Thou art my helper., Why hast Thou forgotten me? And wherefore go I with downcast face whilst

mine enemy afflicteth me? .

Whilst my bones were broken, mine enemies reproached

me; whilst they said to me daily: Where is thy God? •

Why art thou cast down, 0 my soul? And why dost thou disquiet me? Hope in God, for I will give thanks unto Him; He is the salvation of my countenance, and my God.

\

]r Rom the Earth bast Thou form-ed )me.

Ps. 138: 0 Lord, Thou bast proved me and Thou knowest \ ' me; Thou knowest my down-sitting and mine uprising.

Thou bast discerned my thoughts from afar; my path and my lot hast Thou traced out,

..

And hast foreseen all my ways, for there is no guile in my tongue.

Behold, Lord, Thou knowest all tbings, the last and the first; Thou hast fashioned me and hast laid Thy hand upon me.

Thy knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is mighty, I can-

not attain unto it. ~

Whither shall I go from Thy Spirit? And from Thy

presence whither shall I: flee? ,

If I go up into heaven, Thou art there; if I go down into

hades, Thou are present there. '

If I take up my wings toward the dawn, and make mine abode in the uttermost parts of the sea,

Even there shall Thy hand guide me, and Thy right hand shall hold me. '

And I said: Surely darkness shall tread me down, and the night shall be turned into light in my delight.

For darkness will not be darkness with Thee, and night shall be bright as the day; as is the darkness thereof, even so shall the light thereof be.

For Thou hast possessed my reins; 0 Lord, Thou hast hol-

pen me from my mother's womb. ~

I will confess Thee, for awesomely art thou wondrous; marvellous are Thy works, and my soul knoweth it right well.

My bone is not hid from Thee, which Thou madest in secret; nor my substance in the nethermost parts of the earth.

My being while it was still unformed Thine eyes did see, and in Thy book shall all men be written; day by day they are formed, when as yet there be none of them.

But to me, exceedingly honourable are Thy friends, 0 Lord; their principalities are made exceeding strong.

~ .... I will count them, and they shall be multiplied more than the sand; I awoke and I am still with Thee.

Surely Thou wilt slay the sinners, 0 God. Yemen of blood, depart from me.

For Thou wilt say concerning their thoughts that in vain shall they take Thy cities.

As for them that hate Thee, 0 Lord, have I not hated them? And because of Thine enemies have I not pined away?

With perfect hatred have I hated them; they are reckoned enemies with' me.

Prove me, 0 God, and know my heart; examine me and know my paths.

And see if the way of iniquity be in me, and guide me in the way everlasting.

Rest eternal grant unto them, 0 Lord: and let light perpetual shine upon them.

"dust until all flesh can be reduced to its origin; therefore we tearfully beseech 'Thy compassion, 0 God, most loving Father: that Thou wouldst lead the soul of this Thy servant (handmaid) N. which Thou hast created, from the filthy abyss of this world unto its homeland, welcome it in the bosom of Thy friend Abraham, & besprinkle it with the dew of refreshment. Let it be kept apart, from the glowing flames of the fierce Gehenna & be joined, by Thy gift, to blessed rest. And if any faults rightly give it cause for torment, do Thoupardon them by the most gentle mildness of Thy grace: neither let it receive the reward for its sin, but let it feel the loving goodness of Thy forgiveness.
