Prayer for the Dying

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.

O Lord Jesus, who once died in agony, have mercy on those who will die today.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, grant that they may breathe their last in peace with you. †
