Blessed John Henry Newman’s Prayer for the Departed

May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen

and the evening comes,

and the busy world is hushed,

and the fever of life is over,

and our work is done.

Then in His mercy

may He give us a safe lodging,

and a holy rest

and peace at the last.
