Collect for Holy Saturday

O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the

crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and

rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the

coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life;

who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one

God, for ever and ever. Amen.


1979 Book of Common Prayer, Contemporary version
