Silence Of The Stones

Regina Walden / Asheville Music Publishing / BMI / Chris White Music / BMI

IN JERUSELUM THEY SAW HIM MEEK AND LOWLY CHRIST ARRIVED

THEY SHOUTED GLAD HOSANNAH PEACE AND GLORY IS ALIVE

BUT THOSE WHO FELT THREATENED SHOUTED SILENCE TO THE CROWD

IF THEY HAD HELD THEIR PEACE THE STONES WOULD THEN CRY OUT

CHORUS

DON’T LET THE ROCKS CRY OUT FOR THE ROCK OF AGES

FOR THE CORNER STONE OF GRACE IS WORTHY OF ALL PRAISES

PRAISE HIM FOR THE SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS TO ATONE

AND LET THERE BE A WITNESS IN THE SILENCE OF THE STONES

LET THERE BE A WITNESS IN THE SILENCE OF THE STONES

 

FROM PRAISES TO CURSING THEY SOON WOULD HAVE HIM TRIED

PILOT FOUND NOT FAULT STILL CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED

CELEBRATION TURNED TO GRIEVING AND IT SEEMED THAT DEATH HAD WON

BUT THERE’S NEVER BEEN A GRAVESTONE MADE TO HOLD GOD’S RISEN SON

 

THIS ROCK WAS SO OFFENSIVE THAT THE BUILDERS DID REJECT

AND THOUGH THEY DID BETRAY HIM HE SOON WOULD RESURRECT

HE IS OUR FOUNDATION AND WE SHALL SHOW FORTH OUR PRAISE

KEEPING THE STONES QUITE WITH ALL OUR VOICES RAISED

BRIDGE

EVEN THE STONE AT THE TOMB REALLY COULD HAVE CRIED

PRAISES TO THE ROCK THAT THEY THOUGHT WAS THERE INSIDE
