For Grandma Bonnie

God, omit not this woman from Your covenant.
The many evils that in this life she may have committed
she cannot count or list this night.
Gather this soul with Your own arm, O Christ,
great King of the City of Heaven.

It was Your work, O Christ,
the buying of the soul
at the time of the balancing of the beam,
at the time of bringing of justice.
Be this soul hidden in Your right hand.

May Michael, prince of angels,
come to meet her soul,
leading it home
to the heaven of the Son of God.
