Burial Service (John 11:25-26, Job 19:25-27, 1 Timothy 6:7, Job 1:21, Job 14:1-2, Revelation 14:13) – William Croft

John 11:25-26; Job 19:25-27a; 1 Timothy 6:7; Job 1:21b; Job 14:1-2; Revelation 14:13 plus additional text from Book of Common Prayer: The Order for the Burial of the Dead

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

27Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.

Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.

He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
