     42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus. 44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead. 45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. 47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.(KJV)

1. O darkest woe! 
Ye tears, forth flow! 
Has earth so sad a wonder? 
God the Father’s only Son 
Now is buried yonder. 

2. O sorrow dread! 
God’s Son is dead! 
But by His expiation 
Of our guilt upon the cross 
Gained for us salvation. 

3. O sinful man! 
It was the ban 
Of death on thee that brought Him 
Down to suffer for thy sins 
And such woe hath wrought Him. 

4. Lo, stained with blood, 
The Lamb of God, 
The Bridegroom, lies before thee, 
Pouring out His life that He 
May life restore thee. 

5. O Ground of faith, 
Laid low in death. 
Sweet lips. now silent sleeping! 
Surely all that live must mourn 
Here with bitter weeping. 

6. Oh. blest shall be 
Who oft in faith will ponder 
Why the glorious Prince of Life 
Should be buried yonder. 

7. O Jesus blest, 
My Help and Rest 
With tears I now entreat Thee: 
Make me love Thee to the last, 
Till in heaven I greet Thee!
