Who was it that took down the body of God?
.. So stripped and whipped on high
Son of the Most pierced through …
Who wanted to anoint the fresh wound?
Who was he that gathered courage to face the judge
Whose hands dripped guilt?
With trembling faith overcoming fear the request was made
By him who had first come at night
By him who had not consented to their plan of action
By him who was waiting for the kingdom of light
A prominent member of that killer Council
A good and righteous man bought the linen cloth
And came and took Him down
Covered Him in cleanness
Wrapped such suffering humanity
In his own brand new tomb which he had hewn out of rock
Who was it in the stillness of evening that rolled the stone across
And closed the gaping mouth of death?
