Mary Magdalene

On the first Day of the Week
At the break of dawn
Mary Magdalene arrived at the tomb
She saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb

So she ran

She went to Simon Peter and the beloved disciple
She said to them
They have taken the Lord out of the tomb
We do not know where they have laid him

Peter and the other disciple ran to the tomb
They found only burial linens
Then the disciples returned to their homes
But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb

As she wept
She bent over to look into the tomb
She saw two angels in white
Sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying

One at the head
The other at the feet
They said to her
"Woman, why are you weeping?"

She said to them
"They have taken away my Lord
I do not know where they have laid him"

When she had said this
She turned around
She saw Jesus standing there
But she did not know it was Jesus

Jesus said to her
"Woman, why are you weeping?
Whom are you looking for?"

Supposing him to be the gardener
She said to him
"Sir, if you have carried him away,
Tell me where you have laid him
And I will take him away"

Jesus said to her
