An Empty Tomb


“Once for all I gave my life on Calvary;
I am now alive forever more,
An empty tomb will always be a witness;
I’m not coming this way anymore.”

In my dreams I wandered back to Calvary,
To the place where Jesus bled and died.
In His hands my eyes beheld the nail scars;
And I saw the spear wound in His side.

As my tho’ts then wandered to the garden,
To the tomb wherein my Savior lay.
There the angel came and rolled the stone away;
He was gone – He is alive today!

As I stooped and looked into the tomb there,
With the grave clothes lying separately,
As today I ponder all the reasons,
Seems I hear my Savior say to me:

“Once for all I gave my life on Calvary;
I am now alive forever more,
An empty tomb will always be a witness;
I’m not coming this way anymore.
An empty tomb will always be a witness;
I’m not coming this way anymore.
