        I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. John 11. 25--26
        I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: and though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another. Job 19. 25--27
        We brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. William Croft (1678--1727) 1 Timothy 6. 7, Job 1. 21
        All remain standing. The Dean of Windsor shall say


        We are here today in St George's Chapel to commit into the hands of God the soul of his servant Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. With grateful hearts, we remember the many ways in which his long life has been a blessing to us. We have been inspired by his unwavering loyalty to our Queen, by his service to the Nation and the Commonwealth, by his courage, fortitude and faith. Our lives have been enriched through the challenges that he has set us, the encouragement that he has given us, his kindness, humour and humanity. We therefore pray that God will give us grace to follow his example, and that, with our brother Philip, at the last, we shall know the joys of life eternal.
        All sit. The choir sings
        Eternal Father, strong to save,
        Whose arm doth bind the restless wave,
        Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep
        Its own appointed limits keep;
        O hear us when we cry to thee
        For those in peril on the sea.
        O Saviour, whose almighty word
        The winds and waves submissive heard,
        Who walkedst on the foaming deep,
        And calm amid its rage didst sleep:
        O hear us when we cry to thee
        For those in peril on the sea.
        O sacred Spirit, who didst brood
        Upon the chaos dark and rude,
        Who bad'st its angry tumult cease,
        And gavest light and life and peace:
        O hear us when we cry to thee
        For those in peril on the sea.
        O Trinity of love and power,
        Our brethren shield in danger's hour;
        From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
        Protect them whereso'er they go:
        And ever let there rise to thee
        Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
        Melita by J. B. Dykes (1823--76) William Whiting (1825--78)
        Arranged by James Vivian (b. 1974)
        All remain seated.


        Ecclesiasticus 43. 11--26
        Read by the Dean of Windsor
        Look at the rainbow and praise its Maker; it shines with a supreme beauty, rounding the sky with its gleaming arc, a bow bent by the hands of the Most High. His command speeds the snow storm and sends the swift lightning to execute
        his sentence. To that end the storehouses are opened, and the clouds fly out like birds. By his mighty power the clouds are piled up and the hailstones broken small. The crash of his thunder makes the earth writhe, and, when he appears, an earthquake shakes the hills. At his will the south wind blows, the squall from the north and the hurricane. He scatters the snow-flakes like birds alighting; they settle like a swarm of locusts. The eye is dazzled by their beautiful whiteness, and as they fall the mind is entranced. He spreads frost on the earth
