His Sabbath rest

Image hosting by Photobucket
What a thought . . . That the Sabbath was also ordained by God in order that Jesus might fulfil the Law by resting in the grave on the Sabbath day.

The Saturday Collect from Compline (1928)

LORD Jesus Christ, son of the living God, who at this evening hour didst rest in the sepulchre, and didst thereby sanctify the grave to be a bed of hope to thy people; Make us so to abound in sorrow for our sins, which were the cause of thy passion, that when our bodies lie in the dust, our souls may live with thee; who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God world without end. Amen.
