"The Stone Was Rolled Away" NotesThis song was written for Easter 1995. My wife thought this song did not sound joyful enough to be about Easter. I was thinking about what the first Easter must have been like for the disciples. We think of Easter as a great day of celebration which it is. But as I read the Bible it took the disciples a while to realize this. Even when they saw Jesus they were more afraid than joyful at first. We celebrate Easter and then go home. Their lives would be changed forever.

"The Stone Was Rolled Away" Lyrics
They came to the tomb to anoint his body On the first day since they had watched him die They came to the tomb to pay their last respects and They came to the tomb to say goodbye Chorus: But the stone had been rolled away, away and Nothing left but grave cloths where the body lay All their lives where changing turning around 'Cause the Son of God wasn't lying in the ground What have they done with his body? He who they mocked to his death What have they done with the one who forgave them While taking his very last breath? Chorus Angels in raiments of white Now say he is living What had once seemed like the end Was just the beginning Chorus
