A varation of The Funeral Prayer is invoked by Roland Deschain upon Jake Chambers' death. For the prayer recited see: Jake's Eulogy.

The Funeral Prayer is often invoked during the funeral of the recently departed. The deities, Chloe & S'Mana, as well as Gan are invoked to help the deceased person's soul and goes as follows:

Time flies, knells call, life passes, so hear my prayer.
Birth is nothing but Death begun, so hear my prayer.
Death is speechless, so hear my speech.
This is my friend, who served his ka and his tet. Say true.
May the forgiving glance of S'Mana heal his heart. Say please.
May the arms of Gan raise him from the darkness of this earth. Say please.
Surround him, Gan, with light.
Fill him, Chloe, with strength.
If he is thirsty, give him water in the clearing.
If he is hungry, give him food in the clearing.
May his life on this earth and the pain of his passing become as a dream to his waking soul, and let his eyes fall upon every lovely sight;
Let him find the friends that were lost to him, and let every one whose name he calls call his return.
This is my friend, who lived well, loved his own, and died as ka would have it.
Each man owes Death. This is my friend. Give him peace.
