The Reception of the Body
Almighty God, we remember before you today your servant Name..., and we pray that, having opened to her the gates of larger life, you will receive her more and more into your joyful service, that, with all who have served you in the past, she may share in the eternal victory of Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
The Lord's Prayer:
Nunc Dimittis (KJV)
LORD, now lettest thou thy servant
depart in peace:
according to your word
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation:
which thou hast prepared
before the face of all people;
to be a light to lighten the Gentiles:
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son:
and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and ever shall be; World without end.
