279. The Angel Rolled the Stone Away

1 The angel rolled the stone away!
The angel rolled the stone away!
'Twas on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
The angel rolled the stone away!

2 My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!
My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!
'Twas on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
My Jesus spurned that dreadful tomb!

3 My Lord will come again for me!
My Lord will come again for me!
And on a bright and shine day,
When the trumpet began to play,
My Lord will come again for me.
