Friday March 31- Good Friday


Wēop eal gesceaft, cwīðdon cyninges fyll. Crīst wæs on rōde.

Deað he þær byrigde; hwæðere eft Dryhten aras

mid his miclan mihte mannum to helpe…..

to þan þæt he eall mann cyn fram hellwara wite alysde 

All creation wept, wailed because of the fall of the King. Christ was on the cross.

He tasted death there; nevertheless, afterwards the Lord arose

to help mankind with his great might……

So that he might free all mankind from the punishments of hell

– Cynewulf, poet, C860
