One of the prayers I love this most comes from The The Commendation in the burial liturgy in The Book of Common Prayer, page 499. At the time of commendation, according to the rubrics (instructions), “This anthem, or some other suitable anthem, or a hymn, may be sung or said.”
Give rest, O Christ, to your servant(s) with your saints,
where sorrow and pain are no more,
neither sighing, but life everlasting.
You only are immortal, the creator and maker of mankind;
and we are mortal, formed of the earth, and to earth shall we
return. For so did you ordain when you created me, saying,
“You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” All of us go down
to the dust; yet even at the grave we make our song: Alleluia,
alleluia, alleluia.
Even at the grave we make our song: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia?
