For souls whom Thou didst die to save.
Suffering amidst the cleansing fire,
To see Thy face they yet aspire.
Grant them, O Lord, a swift release,
And bring them where all pain shall cease.
Eternal rest give unto all the faithful departed, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
