Good Friday: Into Your Hands I Commend My Spirit

Into your hands I commend my spirit;
you will redeem me, Lord, God of truth.

Psalms 31:6

From the New American Bible, Revised Edition notes:

Into your hands I commend my spirit: in Lk 23:46 Jesus breathes his last with this Psalm verse. Stephen in Acts 7:59 alludes to these words as he is attacked by enemies. The verse is used as an antiphon in the Divine Office at Compline, the last prayer of the day.
