Holy Saturday

"Today a tomb holds Him 
who holds the creation in the hollow of His hand; 
a stone covers Him who covered the heavens with glory. 
Life sleeps and hell trembles, 
and Adam is set free from his bonds. 
Glory to Thy dispensation, 
whereby Thou hast accomplished all things, 
granting us an eternal Sabbath, 
Thy most holy Resurrection from the dead."

(an Orthodox prayer for Holy Saturday)
