They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.
Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?
Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him.
Mary! Master!
O Death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
Thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ.
