God of the living, in your name assembled,
we join to thank you for the life remembered.
Grant us your mercy, to your children giving
hope in believing.

Help us to treasure all that will remind us
of the enrichment in the days behind us.
Your love has set us in the generations,
God of creation.

May we, whenever tempted to dejection
strongly recapture thoughts of resurrection.
You gave us Jesus to defeat our sadness
with Easter gladness.

God, you can lift us from the grave of sorrow
into the presence of your own tomorrow;
give to your people for the day’s affliction
your benediction.
