Detail from Alexandre Bida, “Joseph of Arimathea prepares Christ for burial”

Down, they took his body down;

Joseph, Nicodemus took

him to the tomb reserved for him

and soldiers stood and watched.


There they stood; the soldiers stood,

to see what ruse might there unfold.

suspicious, victory not quite won,

the soldiers stood in wait.


Dark took hold, the sky asleep,

the faithful in their hiding holes,

only women weeping, with

firm vigil in their hearts.
