"Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant, Margaret. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive her into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of your saints in light. Amen." (A Commendatory Prayer, BCP p. 465)
