Your sorrowing Mother stood by Your Cross;
help us in our sorrows
to share Your sufferings.
Like the seed buried in the ground,
You have produced the harvest of eternal life
make us always dead to sin
and alive to God.
Shepard of all,
in death you remained hidden from the world;
teach us to love our hidden spiritual life
with You and the Father.
In Your role as the new Adam,
You went down among the dead
to release all the just there since the beginning;
grant that all who are dead in sin
may hear Your voice and rise to new life.
Son of the living God,
You have allowed us through baptism
to be buried with You;
grant that we may also rise with You in baptism
and walk in newness of life.
