    God our father,
    Your power brings us to birth,
    Your Providence guides our lives,
    And by your command we return to dust

    Lord, those who die still live in Your presence,
    their lives change but do not end.
    I pray in hope for my family,
    Relatives and friends,
    And for all the dead known to You alone

    In company with Christ
    Who died and now lives,
    May they rejoice in your kingdom,
    Where all our tears are wiped away.
    unite us together again in one family,
    To sing your praise forever and ever.

    RIP Holondo Pineiro day Silva
