A Prayer for the Departed

O God of Spirits and all flesh, Who have trampled down death, made the devil powerless, and given Life to Your world, give rest, Lord, to the Soul of your servant (name) who has fallen asleep, in a place of light, in a place of green pasture, in a place of refreshment, from where pain, sorrow and sighing have fled. As a Good and Loving God, forgive every sin committed by him/her in word, deed or thought; for there is no one who lives and does not sin; You alone are without sin, Your righteousness endures for ever, and Your Law is Truth. For You are the Resurrection, the Life and the Repose of Your servant (name) who has fallen asleep, Christ Our God, and to You we offer Glory, with Your Eternal Father and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-giving Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. Amen.
