O God, who holdest all souls in life and callest them unto thee as seemeth best:
we give them back, dear God, to thee who gavest them to us.
But as thou didst not lose them in the giving, so we do not lose them by their return.
For not as the world giveth, givest thou, O Lord of souls:
that which thou givest thou takest away:
for life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only the horizon, and the horizon is nothing to save the limit of our sight.
