Christ Arose – Low in the Grave He Lay
1 Corinthians 15:50-58
Thus reads the French inscription on the tomb of Edward the Black Prince, in Canterbury, England, who died in 1376.
Such as thou art, so once was I. As I am now, so shalt thou be.
Whether written or not, such are the silent words of every man, woman, and child in every cemetery, every mausoleum, and every inch of land and sea in which a mortal has passed into immortality.
