Matins of Holy Saturday

TombstoneFrom the verses on Psalm 119:

Wishing to save Adam,
Thou didst come down to Earth.
Not finding him on Earth, O Master,
Thou didst descend to Hades seeking him.

As when the moon covers
The circle of the sun,
Now the grave has hidden thee, O Savior,
Thy mortal flesh eclipsed in death.

This is the Blessed Sabbath; this is the day of rest on which the Only-Begotten Son of God rested from all His works.
A most blessed Holy Sabbath from your friends at the Onion Dome.
