MAKARIOI OUS EXELEXO KAI PROSELABOU

This is written on a mausoleum of the Greek on the Dhaka University campus in Bangladesh. Can anyone translate it for me? Can anyone tell me about its origin?

Thanks in advance,

Best,

Akkas

This is part of the burial service.

"Μακάριοι ούς εξελέξω καί προσελάβου" means "Blessed are those that you have chosen and taken".
