Preface of the Dead IV
It is truly right and just,
our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God.

by your will that we are governed,
and at your command that we return,
on account of sin,
to the earth from which we came.
And when you give the sign,
we who have been redeemed by the Death of your Son,
shall be raised up to the glory of his Resurrection.
And so, with the company of Angels and Saints,
we sing the hymn of your praise,
as without end we acclaim:
