Liturgical Interlude

Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them. Thou, O God, are praised in Zion, and unto Thee shall the vow be performed in Jerusalem. Hear my prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come. Grant them eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them.

Lord have mercy upon us. Christ have mercy upon us. Lord have mercy upon us.

Day of wrath, that day Will dissolve the centuries in ashes As David and the Sibyl bear witness. What dread there will be When the Judge shall come To judge all things strictly.

A trumpet, spreading a wondrous sound Through the graves of all lands, Will drive mankind before the throne. Death and nature shall be astonished When all creation rises again To answer to the Judge. A book, written in, will be brought forth In which everything is contained, according to which the world will be judged. When therefore the Judge takes His seat Whatever is hidden will reveal itself. Nothing will remain unavenged. What then shall I say, wretch that I am?, What advocate entreat to speak for me, When even the righteous may hardly be secure?

King of great majesty, Who freely savest the redeemed, Save me, O fount of mercy.

Remember, blessed Jesus, That I am the cause of Thy pilgrimage, Do not forsake me on that day. Seeking me Thou didst sit down weary, Thou didst redeem me, suffering death on the cross. Let not such toil be in vain. Just and avenging Judge, Grant remission Before the day of reckoning. I groan like a guilty man. Guilt reddens my face. Spare a suppliant, O God. Thou who didst absolve Mary And didst hearken to the thief, To me also hast Thou given hope. My prayers are not worthy, But Thou in Thy merciful goodness grant That I burn not in everlasting fire. Place me among Thy sheep And separate me from the goats, Setting me on Thy right hand.

When the accursed have been confounded And given over to the bitter flames, Call me with the blessed. I pray in supplication on my knees. My heart contrite as the ashes, Safeguard my fate.

Mournful that day When from the dust shall rise Guilty man to be judged. Therefore spare him, O God. Merciful Jesu, Lord Grant them rest.

Lord Jesus Christ, King of glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from the pains of hell and from the bottomless lake. Deliver them from the lion's mouth. Neither let be swallowed by the abyss nor fall in the darkness. And let St. Michael, Thy standard-bearer, lead them into the holy light Which once Thou didst promise to Abraham and his seed.

We offer unto Thee this sacrifice of prayer and praise. Receive it for those souls whom today we commemorate. Allow them, O Lord, to cross from death into the life which once Thou didst promise to Abraham and his seed. Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Sabaoth. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, grant them rest. Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, grant them everlasting rest.

May eternal light shine on them, O Lord. with Thy saints for ever, because Thou are merciful. Grant the dead eternal rest, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine on them, with Thy saints for ever, because Thou are merciful.
