A prayer for grief...

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight,

and give your angels charge over those who sleep.


Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.
 Rest your weary ones.


Bless your dying ones.
 Soothe your suffering ones.


Pity your afflicted ones.
 Shield your joyous ones.


And for all your love's sake. Amen. - St. Augustine
