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 createst 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: Alleluyia, alleluia, alleluia.
Give rest, O Christ to thy servant with thy saints: Where sorrow and pain are no more; Neither sighing but life everlasting.
