A Burial Lyrics David Crowder

As we the community have gathered here
I would like to pose a question:
How do you sum up a life in a few words?
How do you measure the weight of a soul in a matter of moments?
You do not. You cannot.
But you can pray for rest, and you can pray for light.
And you can remember, you can always remember.

“Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine:
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.
In memoria æterna erit iustus,
Ab auditione mala non timebit.”

[English translation:]

“Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord:
And let perpetual light shine upon them.
He shall be justified in everlasting memory,
And shall not fear evil reports.”
