Introit and Kyrie 

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. A hymn becometh Thee, O God, in Sion, and unto Thee shall a vow be paid in Jerusalem. Listen to my prayer, unto Thee all flesh shall come. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Lord Jesus Christ, King of Glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from infernal suffering and from the bottomless abyss; deliver them from the lion’s mouth that hell engulf them not, that they sink not into darkness. But let the standard-bearer Saint Michael lead them quickly into the holy light, as of old Thou didst promise to Abraham and his seed. Sacrifices and prayers of praise we offer to Thee, O Lord; accept them for those souls of whom we this day commemorate; cause them, O Lord, to pass from death to life. Brandon Odom, baritone

Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death upon that terrible day: when the heavens and earth shall be moved; when Thou shalt come to judge the world by fire.

That day, day of wrath, of disaster and misery, a great and exceedingly bitter day. When Thou shalt come to judge the world by fire. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon them. Brandon Odom, baritone
