MEDITATIONS AND PRAYERS AT THE GRAVES
OF OUR DEAR DEPARTED
Peace be to thy spirit dear one. Well do I know, that safely thou
dwellest under the shadow of God. And yet, to think that thou no
more art with me on earth, grieves the heart and saddens the thought.
I have come to the place where the earthly part of thee has been
laid to rest and at thy grave I pray unto Him, who has revealed
Himself to us as a Father, that he grant me the strength and the
will to emulate the good example set by thee, that I may practice
the good thou hast taught, and lead a pure and virtuous life, so
that, when my time shall come to enter eternity my soul may be found
worthy of salvation.
May thy love and faithfulness that guarded and guided me, be forever
written upon my heart and set us as a memorial before my eyes, that
I may ever find grace and favor in the eyes of God and man.
The glory of God be upon thee, and His peace surround thee. Amen.
