A prayer for a happy death written by St John Henry Newman

Oh, my Lord and Saviour, support me in that hour in the strong arms of your Sacraments, and by the fresh fragrance of your consolations. Let the absolving words be said over me, and the holy oil sign and seal me, and your own Body be my food, and your Blood my sprinkling; and let my sweet Mother, Mary, breathe on me, and my Angel whisper peace to me, and my glorious Saints smile upon me; that in them all, and through them all, I may receive the gift of perseverance, and die, as I desire to live, in your faith, in your Church, in your service, and in your love. Amen.
