Rolling Stones

The men were aghast
When Jesus had asked
That they roll away the stone
They did what He said
But then they all fled
For fear of a stink from the tomb

Then Jesus looked higher
He prayed to the Father
To glorify Himself today
He called Lazarus
Come forth from the grave
The people were soon all amazed

Lazarus walked out
There was no doubt
He had risen from the dead
They slowly unwrapped
His body in tact
And praised God for this great event

About two weeks later
In a scene much greater
Another stone was rolled away
It was not a man
But by angel’s plans
The stone was rolled back from the grave

When Peter arrived
With John by his side
The empty tomb greeted them there
Mary had been there
She looked everywhere
Then an angel said shed not a tear

Jesus has risen
Just as he said
You’ll not find the living among the dead
Go and I’ll meet you
In Galilee
Then you will go His story to spread

As she hurried off
Jesus appeared
He stopped and told her not to fear
He is alive
For all to see
Soon all the world will be longing to hear

Two stones rolled away
Two dead men alive
Two miracles made
Two moments in time

Our stones can defeat us
Our stones hold us back
But God has the answer
Your stone He’ll attack

He’ll roll it away
By man or His power
You’ll rise once again
Through His grace this hour
