O God most kind,
the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation,
whose will it is that no one who believes
and hopes in you, should perish.
With your boundless mercy,
look with kindness on your servants,
for true faith and Christian hope commend them to you.
Come to them in your saving power,
and because of the passion and death of your only Son,
be pleased to grant them remission and
pardon of all their sins so that their souls,
when they leave this life,
cleansed of every stain by the blood of your Son,
may enter into life everlasting.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
