Masses for the Dead

As the body is being carried from the church to the cemetery, and during the burial, the following can be sung:

May the Angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs greet you at your arrival and lead you into the holy city, Jerusalem.

May the choir of Angels greet you and like Lazarus, who once was a poor man, may you have eternal rest.
