“Have mercy on all souls,‬ ‪O blessed, forbearing King”

‪Through these sighs of sorrow and laments‬
‪Arranged in numerous forms,‬
‪Have mercy on all souls,‬
‪O blessed, forbearing King,‬
‪And especially on those souls‬
‪Cut off from any hope‬
‪Of a life of salvation,‬
‪Those who have gone to their rest unprepared,‬
‪Their lamps extinguished from lack of oil.‬
‪Remember them, my Lord of compassion.‬

St Gregory of Narek‬
