The noble Joseph took Thine immaculate Body down from the Tree, / having wrapped It in pure linen and spices, laid in a new tomb. / But on the third day Thou didst rise, O Lord, // granting to the world great mercy.

The Bible tells us that in God's time, the day begins with evening ("The evening and the morning were the first day"), so the services of the Church begin in the evening with Vespers, a service that in some ways "closes" the day that is past and in other ways begins the new day. The next morning, the services of the Third Hour and the Sixth Hour continue the services of that day, followed immediately by the Divine Liturgy.
