Funeral rites

The burial office, according to Burmester (1967), begins with a prayer of thanksgiving and the trisagion. The office in church begins with a prayer of thanksgiving, the Gloria and the Lord's Prayer. Psalm 51 follows, and then a number of extracts from psalms, ending with Psalm 114. A prayer of incense follows, with Epistle, trisagion and Gospel. Prayers for peace, the patriarch and clergy, and for the faithful follow, and then the burial prayer. Then come the Lord's Prayer, a prayer to Christ for absolution and prayer for the safe journey of the departed to paradise follow. This prayer was once said over the grave, though now it is frequently said in the church. There is a further absolution and blessing.
