Lord, We Turn to You
from the Jewish Funeral Service Prayer Book
Lord, we turn to you in our grief and bewilderment,
for a mystery surrounds the birth and death of man.
Your will summons us into this world an then calls us to depart,
but Your plan is so vast and Your purposes so deep
that our understanding fails, and our reason cannot follow.
Yet You have taught us that time and space are not the measure
of all things.
Beyond them is the life of eternity.
We do not die into the grave but into the love of God.
It has been Your will to receive the soul of him/her,
to bring him/her to the life everlasting,
and she/he is beyong the tragedies of this world.
We shall find our comfort in Your teaching.
Beyond the grave we shall meet together
in the life that has no end.
