The Church’s official prayer for the Holy Souls
Out of the depths I cry to thee, O Lord! Lord, hear my voice!
Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
If thou, O Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;
My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.
O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plenteous redemption.
And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
Recite the Glory Be.
