Lyrics

Some days are dark and dreary,
Filled with pain and care,
My doubting heart oft questions
Why are not all fair;
Then comes with blest assurance
As I hear God say:
Fear not, and from my spirit
Rolls the stone away.

Refrain

He rolls the stone away,
He rolls the stone away,
My loving, heav’nly Fa­ther
Rolls the stone away;
He rolls the stone away,
He rolls the stone away,
My loving, heav’nly Fa­ther
Rolls the stone away;

In days of pain and sorrow
Satan tries his art,
With earth’s delusive solace
For an aching heart;
But deep within my soul a
Loving voice doth say:
Fear not, and from my spirit
Rolls the stone away.

Refrain

And when the shadows lengthen
And I near the vale,
And when the king of terrors
Seemeth to prevail;
I trust to hear my pilot
In His sweet voice say:
Fear not, and from my spirit
Rolls the stone away.
