Selected Scripture

Matthew 27

57 Now when even was come there came a rich man of Arimathaea, his name Joseph, who also himself was a disciple to Jesus. 58 *He*, going to Pilate, begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given up. 59 And Joseph having got the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn in the rock; and having rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, went away. 61 But Mary of Magdala was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the sepulchre.

Selected Hymn Verse

Hymns and Spiritual Songs for the Little Flock (rev 1962), #13, Verse 1

The Father sent the Son
A ruined world to save;
Man meted to the sinless One
The cross - the grave.
Blest Substitute from God,
Wraths's awful cup He drained;
Laid down His life, and e'en the tomb's
Reproach sustained.
