Prayer for the Faithful Departed
Let us offer up our prayers for the repose of the souls of the faithful departed, particularly the souls of our deceased parents, relations, and friends, and for those who have been members of the Cathedral community.
Out of the depths I have cried to thee, O Lord, Lord, hear my voice.
Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication.
If thou, O Lord, shalt observe iniquities, Lord, who shall endure it?
For with thee there is merciful forgiveness: and by reason of thy law I have waited for the, O Lord.
My soul hath relied on his word; my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord.
Because with the Lord there is mercy, and with him plentiful redemption.
And he shall redeem Israel from all its iniquities.
V/ Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord.
R/ And let perpetual light shine upon them.
V/ May they rest in peace.
V/ O Lord, hear my prayer.
R/ And let my cry come unto thee.
Let us Pray:
O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of thy servants departed the remission of all their sins, that through our pious supplications they may obtain that pardon which they have always desired; Who livest and reignest world without end.
