An Aztec prayer to be said at the deathbed

An Aztec prayer to be said at the deathbed:

“Dear Child! Thou hast passed through and survived the labors of this life. Now it hath pleased our Lord to carry thee away. For we do not enjoy this world everlastingly, only briefly;

our life is like the warming of oneself in the sun.

-- Joseph Campbell
(pg 100)
