Story behind the song
The song is my interpretation of the events recorded in Matt 28 and Luke 24. It is about the resurrection power of the Lord. Originally the song was named "Mary's" song, and the title later changed to "The Stone's Been Rolled Away". I introduced it in church on Easter 2001. Re-Recorded 2006 with "A Band of Christians". Bass/Chris Alviso, Drums/Jesus LeBron, Vocals/Lynne&Bill Daviet, Guitars/Bill Daviet
Lyrics
Verse 1 * Open your eyes ( echo ) * Open your ears ( echo ) * Let those with eyes to see and ears to hear shed no more tears * Open your hearts ( echo ) * Open your minds ( echo ) * Today’s the day we’ve waited for, * He’s the hope of all mankind * Chorus 1 * The stone’s been rolled away * Yes the stone’s been rolled away * And what they say when they looked inside was an empty tomb that day * I tell you, the stone’s been rolled away * Verse 2 * Lift up your arms ( echo ) * Lift up your lives (echo ) *Jesus knocks upon your door, won’t you please let Him inside * Take up the cross ( echo ) * Give up your pride ( echo ) * He says “ My burden’s easy and my yoke is light”, He’s redemptions sacrifice * Chorus 2 * The stone’s been rolled away * Yes the stone’s been rolled away * Let all with eyes to see and ears to hear rejoice this day * I tell you, the stone’s been rolled away * Chorus 3 * The stone’s been rolled away * Yes the stone’s been rolled away * And what you’ll see if you look inside is an empty tomb today * I tell you, the stone’s been rolled away
