Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
Holbein, Hans the Younger
The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb
O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
– Book of Common Prayer

Praise be to Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God and Risen Savior!!!
