Remembrance Sunday

Lord, be good to them,

And show them all your love.


Lord be kind to them,

And grant them peace above.


Lord, be merciful to them,

And wipe their sins away.


Lord, be generous to them,

With all my heart I pray.


Lord, be gracious to them,

For good that they have done.


Lord, be gentle with them,

For sufferings undergone.


Lord, may we meet again.

When heaven’s crown is won. Amen                (Fr. Patrick Sayles SSC)
