Lord,

Christ,

Hear us !
Lord God, our Father, which art in heaven!

Hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive them that trespass against us; und lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever, and ever. Amen. Lord God, Son, thou Saviour of the world!

Be gracious unto us!
By thy human birth,
By thy prayers and tears,
By all the troubles of thy life,
By thine infirmities and pains,
By all the grief and anguish of thy soul,
By thine agony and bloody sweat,
By thy bonds and scourgings,
By thy crown of thorns,
By thine ignominious crucifixion,
By thy sacred wounds and precious blood,
By thy atoning death,
• By thy rest in the grave,

By thy glorious resurrection and ascension,
By thy sitting at the right hand of God,
By thy divine presence,
By thy coming again to thy church on earth, or our being
called home to thee,

. Bless and comfort us, gracious Lord and God! Lord God, Holy Ghost !

Abide with us for ever!

T. 83. CONG. Christ is risen from the dead, ..

Thou shalt rise too, saith my Saviour,
Of what should I be afraid ?

I with him shall live for ever;
Can the HEAD forsake his limb,

And not draw me unto him? I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die,

Therefore, blessed are the dead, which die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors.

o death, where is thy sting?. O grave, where is thy victory ? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law; but thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen. 1.580. Cong. This body now to rest convey'd,

Into the earth like Jesus' laid,

Like his shall rise again:
Christ soon in glory will appear,

Then we, and these interred here,

. With him o'er death shall ever reign.* We poor sinners pray, Hear us, gracious Lord and God!

And keep us in everlasting fellowship with our brother (sister) N. N. whose remains we here inter, and with the whole church triumphant, and let us once rest with him (her) in thy presence from all our labor.

Amen. Our late brother (sister) desired to depart, and to be with Christ, which is far better; and he (she) shall never taste death, but attain unto the resurrection of the dead; for this body, which he (she) hath put off, this grain of corruptibility, shall put on incorruption. His (her) flesh here rests in hope..

The Father and the Son, who quicken whom they will, and the Spirit of him, who raised up Jesus from the dead, will also quicken this body, because the Spirit of God hath dwelt in it.

Amen,
T. 22. Cong. The Saviour's blood and righteousness

My beauty is, my glorious dress;
Thus well array'd, I need not fear,

When in his presence I appear.
* During the singing of this verse, the corpse is laid into the grave.

None of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself, for whether we live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's; for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. .

Blessed and holy is he, that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ. 7. 58. Cong. The Spirit and the bride of Christ say: come;

Let ev'ry one that heareth answer: come;
, Amen, come, Lord Jesus; come, we implore thee;
With longing hearts we now are waiting for thee,

Come soon, o come! Glory be to Him who is the Resurrection and the Life, who vivifieth us as long as we are dying: and after we have obtained the true life, doth not suffer us to die any more.

Glory be to Him in the church which waiteth for Him, and in that which is around Him ; for ever and ever, Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with us all. Amen,

Lord,

Have mercy upon us !
Christ,

Hear us ! :: Our Father, which art in heaven; Hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive them that trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever, Amen.

xxxiii O Father, accept us as thy children in thy beloved Son, Jesus Christ, who came forth from thee, and came into the world, was made flesh, and dwelt among us, took on him the form of a servant, and hath redeemed us, lost and undone human creatures, from all sin and from death with his holy and precious blood, and with his innocent suffering and dying ; to the end that we should be his own, and in his kingdom live under him and serve him, in eternal righteousness, innocence, and happiness : so as he is risen from the dead, liveth and reigneth world without end.

Therefore, blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth : yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors.

Whosoever liveth and believeth in Christ, shall never die, for he is the Resurrection and the Life, and went to prepare a place for us, and will come again, and receive us unto himself, that where he is, there we may be also.

Meanwhile none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself, for whether we live, we live unto the Lord, and whether we die, we die unto the Lord; whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's ; for to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Blessed and holy is he, that hath part in the first resurrection; on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ.

O death, where is thy sting? ( grave where is thy victory ? Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. T. 14. Cong. Now to the earth let these remains*

In hope committed be,
Until the body chang'd obtains

Blest immortality.
We poor sinners pray, Hear us, gracious Lord and God!

And keep us in everlasting fellowship with our brother (sister) (or with this child) N. N. whose remains we here inter, and with the whole church triumphant, and let us once rest with him (her) in thy presence from all our labor.

Amen.
