Almighty God, by your power Jesus Christ was raised from death. Watch over our Sister/Brother.

Fill her/his eyes with your light to see, beyond human sight, a home within your love where pain is gone and frail flesh turns to glory.

Banish fear.
Brush tears away.

Let death be as gentle as nightfall, promising a day when songs of joy shall make us glad to be together with Jesus Christ. Amen.
