My God, I believe in you
and all your Church teaches,
because you have said it
and your word is true.
My God, I hope in you,
for grace and for glory,
because of your promises,
your mercy and power.
Eternal rest give unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
