There's a step that we all take alone
An appointment we have with the great unknown
Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass
Like the flowers that fade, like the whithering grass
But life seems so long and death so complete
And the grave an impossible portion to cheat
But, there's one who has been there and still lives to tell
There is one who has been through both Heaven and Hell
And the grave will come up empty handed that day
Jesus will come and steal us away...
Where is the sting?
Tell me, where is the bite?
When The Graverobber comes like a thief in the night
Where is the victory?
Where is the prize?
When The Graverobber comes and Death finally dies
Many still mourn, many still weep
For those that they love who have fallen asleep
But, we have this hope though our hearts may still ache
Just one shout from above and they all will awake
And in the reunion of joy you will see
Death will be swallowed in sweet victory...
When the last enemy is gone
From the dust will come a song
Those asleep will be awakened
Not a one will be forsaken
He shall wipe away our tears
He will steal away oour fears
There will be no sad tomorrow
There will be no pain and sorrow
