Sepulcher Of Rest

The day He died, He bowed His head and cried
“It Is Finished”

“When Joseph had taken His body, he wrapped it in a clean
linen cloth and laid it in his new tomb, which he had
hewn out of the rock”

Matthew 27:59

The sun forgot to shine that


With a frown it slowly faded


Darkness filled the sky

Upon this event no one

Could look

Mockers spit upon His body

The heathen raged

The Pharisees gloated

They had had their way

The sky split in two the

Rocks broke asunder

His body thrust with a


Water and blood from

A broken heart appeared

Oh Caiaphas, why did you

Plot to kill this Man?

Pilate’s wife had said “Have

Nothing to do with Him”

Of His guilt you washed your


The day He died He bowed

His Head and cried

“It is finished!”

Joseph laid Him in a tomb

Especially hewn for Him

His beloved friends

Laid His hands upon His


His Holy Death and

Resurrection we honor

But of the day in between

These two blessed events

Some believe He went to heaven

But then why would He need

A Resurrection?

Oh you wily ones, did you think

Your seal upon the stone would

Keep the Savior hidden?

So on the day between death and

Life, our Lord rested, to rise


For us the victory over death has

Been won!

Let not this day be forgotten!
