After all this, Joseph of Arimathea (he was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, because he was intimidated by the Jews) petitioned Pilate to take the body of Jesus. Pilate gave permission. So Joseph came and took the body.

Nicodemus, who had first come to Jesus at night, came now in broad daylight carrying a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. They took Jesus body and, following the Jewish burial custom, wrapped it in linen with the spices.

Midi: Hosanna

Hosanna, loud hosanna, the little children sang;

thru pillared court and temple the lovely anthem rang;

to Jesus, who had blessed them close folded to His breast,

the children sang their praised, the simplest and the best.

Hosanna to the Son of David!

Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest.

(Matthew 21:9)
