Song of Farewell O Loving God
(Melody of Danny Boy)
O Loving God, we send Our Brother home to you,
Home to a place of everlasting love,
To join thee with the angel choirs and blessed saints,
And to behold your glorious holy face.
Receive his soul and let eternal light shine,
Eternal light forever on his soul.
So he may be forever in your dwelling place,
And be at rest in peace until we meet him there.
O loving God, have mercy and forgiveness,
Upon your servant’s new departed soul
And may your grace and love enfold him evermore,
So he may dwell in paradise at last.
Sending Forth Hymn Let there be Peace on Earth
