SP 3 (her/him)
Each time we look at your picture
You seem to smile and say,
Don’t be sad but courage take,
And love each other for my sake.
In the shelter of Thy Sacred Heart,
Dear Jesus, may she rest;
We love her well but still we know,
God’s Holy Will is best.
Hold him O Jesus, in Thine arms,
And let him henceforth be,
A messenger of love between
Our human hearts and Thee.
All I ask is that wherever you may be
you will remember me at Holy Communion
and at the foot of the Altar.
Christ has died;
Christ is risen
Christ will come again.
Oh! you whom I have loved
so much on earth,
pray for me and live in such a manner
that we may be re-united in a Blessed Eternity.
Two tired eyes are sleeping,
Two willing hands are still;
The one who worked so hard for us
Is resting at God’s Will.
It does not take a special day,
For us to think of you;
Each Mass we hear,
each prayer we say,
Is offered up for you.
We cannot bring the old days back,
When we were all together;
The family chain is broken now
But memories last forever.
O sweet Jesus for the sake of
Thy Bitter Passion and the sorrows
of Thy Immaculate Mother,
have mercy on his soul,
and let the light of Thy countenance
shine upon him. Amen.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph
assist me in my last agony;
Jesus, Mary and Joseph
may I breathe
forth my soul in peace with you.
A silent grief that’s in our hearts,
No human eye can trace;
For many a broken heart is hid
Beneath a smiling face
SP 15 (her/him)
The Lord bless you and keep you;
Show His face to you
and have mercy on you;
Turn His countenance to you
and give you peace.
O Mary conceived without sin,
pray for us who have recourse to Thee.
We have loved her in life,
let us not forget her in death.
Those who die in grace go no further
from us than God,
and God is very near.
God gave us the strength to bear it,
And courage to fight the blow;
What it has meant to lose you
God alone will ever know.
Your life was love and labour,
Your love for your family true,
You did your best for all of us
We will always remember you.
Just a prayer from the family
who loved you,
Just a memory fond and true,
In our hearts you will live forever,
Because we thought the world of you.
God grant me the Serenity to
Accept the things I cannot change…
Courage to change the things I can,
and Wisdom to know the difference.
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day, be at my side
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
If tears could build a stairway,
and memories a lane,
I’d walk right up to Heaven
and bring you back again.
Our hearts still ache with sadness,
and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you -
No one can ever know.
Loving you is easy,
We do it every day,
Missing you is a heartache,
That never goes away.
God saw the road was getting rough,
The hill was hard to climb,
He gently closed your weary eyes,
And whispered “Peace be thine”.
Sacred Heart of Jesus
I place all my trust in Thee.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and the rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God
hold you in the palm of His hand.
SP 29 (her/him)
Pray for me as I will for thee,
that we may all merrily meet in heaven.
St. Thomas More
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen
A bouquet of beautiful memories,
sprayed with a million tears,
wishing God could have spared you,
if just for a few more years
