Father, if the hour has come to make the break,
help me not to cling,
even though it feels like death.
Give me the inward strength of my Redeemer Jesus Christ,
to lay down this bit of life and let it go,
so that I and others may be free
to take up whatever new and fuller life
you have prepared for us,
now and hereafter. Amen.
Eternal rest grant to him O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
