Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Like the seed buried in the ground, you have produced the harvest of eternal life for us; make us always dead to sin and alive to God. In Jesus name we pray.
