A Prayer

May perpetual light shine upon 

The face of he who rests here.  


May the remembering earth  

Mind every memory he brought.  


May the rains from the heavens  

Fall gently upon him.  


May the wildflowers and grasses  

Whisper their wishes into the light.


May we reverence the village of presence  

In the stillness of this silent field.  


-- Adapted from a poem by John Donohue

The Lord's Prayer

 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy Name, 
thy kingdom come, 
thy will be done, 
on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day our daily bread. 
And forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those
who trespass against us. 

And lead us not into temptation, 
but deliver us from evil. 

For thine is the kingdom, 
and the power, and the glory, 
for ever and ever. Amen
