O Loving God, A Farewell Hymn for Funerals/Memorial Services, Beautiful

O Loving God (to the tune of Londonderry Air or "Danny Boy") 

Vs. 1
O loving God, we send our daughter(son) home to you,
home to a place of everlasting love,
to join there with the angel choirs and blessed saints,
and to behold your glorious holy face.

Chorus:
Receive her/his soul and let eternal light shine,
eternal light forever on her/his soul,
so she/he may be forever in your dwelling place,
and be at rest in peace until we meet her/him there

Vs. 2
O loving God, have mercy and forgiveness
Upon your servant's now departed soul,
And may your grace and love enfold her/him evermore,
So she/he may dwell in paradise at last.

Chorus:
Receive her/his soul and let eternal light shine,
eternal light forever on her/his soul,
so she/he may be forever in your dwelling place,
and be at rest in peace until we meet her/him there
