The Hour of Our Death
Lord Jesus, who was born for us in a stable,
lived for us a life of pain and sorrow,
and died for us upon a cross:
Say for us in the hour of death, “Father, forgive,”
and to Your Mother, “Behold your child.”
Say to us, “This day you shall be with Me in paradise.”
Dear Saviour, leave us not, forsake us not.
We thirst for You, Fountain of Living Water.
Our days pass quickly along, soon all will be consummated for us.
To Your hands, we commend our spirits, now and forever. Amen.
