Grave Robber

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
