In the Grave He Lay

In the Grave He Lay

How can it be that the eternal God lay entombed in a grave on that day we commemorate today?
How did the eternal light lay in darkness?
How did the life of heaven submit to death?
How did the Word of Power bow his head to the silence of the grave?
How did the Overseer of the Church close his all-seeing eyes?
How did the Warrior King surrender His soul?
How did the blazing sun of glory lie cold and lifeless on a slab of stone?

Today is the day of mystery, of light and life concealed in darkness and death. 

Amazing love, how can it be
That you, my Lord, should die for me?
