These words taken from the “new” Ordinariate rite for funerals are most indicative of our Anglican patrimony and were famously set to music by Henry Purcell. The two rights are very well done. Thanks are due to Archbishop J. Augustine DiNoia OP and the Congregation of Divine Worship. (See post just below for links to the full texts of the Marriage and Funeral rites).
“Man that is born of a woman hath but a short time to live, and is full of misery. He cometh up, and is cut down, like a flower; he fleeth as it were a shadow, and never continueth in one stay.
In the midst of life we are in death: of whom may we seek for succour, but of thee, O Lord, who for our sins art justly displeased?
Yet, O Lord God most holy, O Lord most mighty, O holy and most merciful Saviour, deliver us not into the bitter pains of eternal death.
Thou knowest, Lord, the secrets of our hearts; shut not thy merciful ears to our prayer; but spare us, Lord most holy, O God most mighty, O holy and merciful Saviour, thou most worthy Judge eternal, suffer us not, at our last hour, for any pains of death, to fall from thee.”
