Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: When Jesus stood at Lazarus’ tomb and none believed He had the pow’r, Despite their grief and their disbelief, He commanded, “Take away the stone.”
Verse 2: When Jesus lay in Joseph’s tomb and none believed He had the pow’r, True Love spoke forth in a Father’s voice, And the angel took away the stone.
Verse 3: When I shall lie within my tomb and none believe He has the pow’r, The Lord Himself will descend from heav’n with a shout to take away the stone.
