† In Memoriam.

For the souls of the faithful departed especially,    The victims of London Bridge . . . .

together with all those we love and see no longer....

Rest eternal grant to them O Lord
            and let light perpetual shine upon them.

And I next acknowledge duly

Firmly I believe and truly God is Three, and God is One; And I next acknowledge duly Manhood taken by the Son.

John Henry Newman – The Dream of Gerontius
