mourningO God, whose beloved Son did take little children into his
arms and bless them: Give us grace, we beseech thee, to
entrust these children and their caretakers to thy never-failing care and love, and
bring us all to thy heavenly kingdom; through the same thy
Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. 

Almighty God, Father of mercies and giver of comfort:
Deal graciously, we pray thee, with all those who mourn, that
casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of
thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. [Book of Common Prayer]
