Archbishop of Canterbury gives commendation at Her Majesty's funeral.

London, The Gulf Observer: The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, is now giving the commendation at Her Majesty’s funeral.

This is a prayer which entrusts the soul of the deceased to God.

He says: “Let us commend to the mercy of God, our maker and redeemer, the soul of Elizabeth, our late Queen.”

The Most Reverend Welby adds: “Heavenly Father, King of kings, Lord and giver of life, who of thy grace in creation didst form mankind in thine own image, and in thy great love offerest us life eternal in Christ Jesus.

“Claiming the promises of thy most blessed Son, we entrust the soul of Elizabeth, our sister here departed, to thy merciful keeping, in sure and certain hope of the resurrection to eternal life, when Christ shall be all in all; who died and rose again to save us, and now liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, in glory for ever.”
