Twelfth Station: Jesus dies on the Cross

Life eternal death defiant,
Bowed His head – the world was silent,
Through his death came life anew.

“It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.’ When he had said this, he breathed his last.” (Luke 23:44-46 NIV)

“Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” (John 19:30b NIV)
