The Fourteenth Station: Jesus is laid in the tomb
We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee. Because by thy holy cross thou hast redeemed the world.
When it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea named Joseph, who also was a disciple of Jesus. He went to Pilate and begged for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered it be given to him. And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock; and he rolled a great sone to the door of the tomb.
O God, whose blessed Son was laid in a garden tomb, and rested on the Sabbath day: Grant that we who have been buried with him in the waters of baptism may find our perfect rest in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he liveth and reigneth for ever and ever. Amen.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy upon us.
Jesus, may her deep devotion
Stir in us the same emotion
Fount of love, Redeemer Kind;
That our hearts fresh ardor gaining
And a purer love attaining,
May with thee acceptance find. Amen
