Redeemer suffered and was buried for us in order to rise again.
With sincere love we adore him, and aware of our needs we cry out:
Lord, Have mercy on us.
our Savior, your sorrowing Mother
stood by you at your death and burial.
In our sorrows may we share your suffering.
our Lord, like the seed buried in the ground,
you brought forth for us the harvest of grace.
May we die to sin and live for God.
the Good Shepherd, in death you lay hidden from the world.
Teach us to love a life hidden with you in the Father.
the new Adam, you entered the kingdom of death
to release all the just since the beginning of the world.
May all who lie dead in sin hear your voice and rise to life.
Son of the living God, through baptism
we were buried with you.
Risen also with you in baptism, may we walk in newness of life.
and ever-living God,
your only Son went down among the dead
and rose again in glory.
In your goodness
raise up your faithful people,
buried with him in baptism,
to be one with him
in the eternal life of heaven,
where he lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever.
the Intercessions of Morning Prayer of Holy Saturday.
