Can anyone share the prayer that priests offer to bless kolyva at the end of a Panakhyda service? Thanks!

This is the one I am accustomed to in English that we often use:
Deacon: Let us pray to the Lord. All: Lord, have mercy.
And then the blessing of the kutya:
Priest: O Lord, who has perfected all things through Your Word, and has commanded the earth to bring forth all manner of fruit for our enjoyment and food; Who through that which is sown has made the Three Children and Daniel fairer than the Babylonians who lived in luxury: O All-gracious King, bless + also these grain and fruits, and sanctify them that will partake of them, for they have been offered by Your servants to Your glory as a memorial to them that have departed this life in devout faith. Grant, O Good One, unto them that have prepared these and keep this memorial, all their petitions that are unto salvation, and the enjoyment of Your eternal good things. Through the prayers of our immaculate Mother of God and ever-virgin Mary, of N./NN. whose feast we celebrate, of N./NN. the patron of this temple, and of all Your saints. For it is You who blesses and sanctifies all things, O our God, and to You we send up glory: to the eternal Father, together with Your only-begotten Son, and Your most holy, good, and life-giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.

You may, of course, insert the specific names of the departed at "as a memorial to N./NN. that has/have departed this life..."
