Into thy hands I commend my spirit, O...
Language: English 
Into thy hands I commend my spirit, O God.
Into thy hands I commend my soul. 

And the other said, 
“Jesus, remember me when you come in your kingly power,”
and he said unto him, 
“Truly, I say to you this day, you will be with me in Paradise.” 

It was now about the sixth hour
and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour
while the sun’s light failed
and the curtain of the temple was torn in twain,
then Jesus with a loud voice cried,
“Father! Into thy hands I commend my spirit, O God.
Into thy hands I commend my soul.”
And having said this, he breathed his last.
