Ritual For Person Dying

It is time. God sends for you.
Go and God will be with you.

You are blessed and watched over.
God's Presence shines upon you and sheds grace all around you.
Garb in light, for peace will be upon you.

God's angels come to your sides.
On your right, Michael, to carry your prayers.
On your left, Gavriel, to protect you.
Before you Uriel, to light your way.
Behind you, Raphel, to heal all hurts.
Over and all around you, Shechina, rest in her wings.

Be strong and of good courage.
Leave your fear for God is with you.
As the eagle rises within her nest and hovers over her young
as she spreads her wings, takes them, and bears them upon her back,
awake North wind, and come, South,
blow upon my Garden, that the spices therein flow out.
Let my beloved come into her/his Garden, and eat its precious fruits.
Open wide the gates.

God will keep you from all evil.
God will watch over your soul.
God will guard your leaving and your coming in
from this time forth and forever.

(When the soul leaves the body)
Shema Israel Adonai Eloheynu Adonai Ehad.

May you be covered with God's pinions.
May you take refuge under God's wings.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night nor
of the arrow that flies by day.
Walk in the light.
Peace has come.
Rest in her arms.
Amen.
