  In Paradisum: Into Paradise
In paradisum deducant te Angeli;
in tu adventu suscipiant te martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.

Chorus angelorum te suscipiat,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

Into paradise may the angels lead you.
At your coming may the martyrs receive you,
And bring you into the holy city Jerusalem.

May the choirs of angels welcome you,
And with Lazarus who once was poor
May you have peace everlasting.


May flights of angels lead you on your way
To paradise and to eternal day 
May martyrs greet you after death's dark night
And bid you enter into Zion's light
May choirs of angels sing you to your rest
With once poor Lazarus, forever blest
Join in the chorus that never shall cease
Rest in His presence in eternal peace

In paradisum O deducant te ;
in tu adventu suscipiant te ,
Angeli, martyres perducant te
(in) civitatem sanctam Ierusalem.
te suscipiat chorus angelorum ,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
habeas (in) æternam requiem.

- Sing to "Abide with Me" or "Be Thou My Vision"


Come to his aid, O Saints of God,
Come meet him angels of the Lord.
Receive his soul, O holy ones;
Present him now to God Most High.

May Christ who called you, take you home
Angels lead you to Abraham.
Receive her soul, O holy ones;
Present her now to God Most High.

Give him eternal rest, O Lord,
May light unending shine on him.
Receive his soul, O holy ones;
Present him now to God Most High.

I know that my Redeemer lives,
The last day I shall rise again.
Receive his soul, O holy ones;
Present him now to God Most High


Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Requiescat in pace. Amen.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him
May he rest in peace. Amen
