Easter Morning




The words may not be exact, but below are the lyrics to a favorite Easter song of mine. . .

Gone

Mary came into the tomb of Jesus.
The stone was moved and he had gone away.
The angel said,"Fear not, I know whom seek ye.
But, he is risen." This she heard him say.

He's Gone, the stone was rolled back,
Gone, the tomb is empty.
Gone, to sit at his father's side.
Gone, over death triumphant,
Gone, sin is defeated,
Gone, and he lives forever more.

My friend if you don't know this risen savior,
I beg of you don't wait too late to pray,
don't wait until the bride has been completed,
don't wait until you hear him say "It's too late."

He's Gone, the stone was rolled back,
Gone, the tomb is empty.
Gone, to sit at his father's side.
Gone, over death triumphant,
Gone, sin is defeated,
Gone, and he lives forever more.

Gone, over death triumphant,
Gone, sin is defeated
Gone, he lives for ever more.


Happy Easter

  9. I have not heard that song for a while. It always brings tears to the eye. It gives us so much hope. I always think of Walker Chapel Church when I hear this. It is wonderful that you share your faith in the Lord. What a wonderful testimony.
