In paradisum

In paradisum deducant te Angeli ;
in tuo adventu
suscipiant te Martyres,
et perducant te in civitatem
sanctam Jerusalem.
Chorus Angelorum te suscipiat,
et cum Lazaro quondam paupere
aeternam habeas requiem.

Celebrant :
Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine.

All : Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Celebrant : Requiescant in pace.
All : Amen.
