Remembrance of the Departed (Gloria Patri Revised)

Eternal God, in whom the spirits of just men do rest in peace from their labors, we bless and praise thy holy name for all thy servants who have departed this life in thy faith and fear; and especially those most dear to us who have fallen asleep; and we beseech thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that here we may be united to them in fellowship of spirit, and finally be gathred together with them into the bosom of thine infinite love. Amen.

  • From “Second Order for Vespers” in Gloria Patri Revised (1903), p. 131
