Jesus was standing beside a grave,
Weeping, but knowing His power to save;
Take ye away now the stone from the door,
And Christ will His power display.

Refrain

They rolled the stone away,
For Christ was there that day,
And called upon a man to leave the darkened grave.
We’ll roll the stone away,
For He is here today,
And waits to show His mighty power,
His power to save.

Jesus is speaking to you in song,
Asking why you have delayed so long?
While men are lying in grave-clothes of sin,
For whom Jesus died on the cross.

Refrain

Jesus is standing by hearts of sin,
Knocking and saying, Let Me come in.
Rouse, then, ye sleeper, and open the door,
For Jesus has power to save.
