The Night Before Easter Lyrics by Gaither Vocal Band
The Night Before Easter by Gaither Vocal Band
And a silence covers the Earth;
The stars have no glimmer, the moon tries to hide,
For in death lies the man of their birth.
Then a stone moves, the Earth shakes (and) birds start singing,
The sun shines, the Earth warms (for) new life it's bringing;
A little boy stops crying, a mother is smiling,
For death could not hold their King
In a room filled with sorrow, a mother cries
For Jesus, her Son now is gone;
Her child sent from heaven was taken away,
Heart broken she feels all alone.
At the feet of his mother a little boy cries
Saying "'momma' I don't understand;"
I remember the look of love in His eyes,
That I saw, by the touch of His hand.
The King of all ages, the Giver of life,
For a moment lies silent and still;
But a power sent from heaven comes breaking the night,
And death must bow to His will.
When death could not hold their King.
