09. Grave Robber

Back to the Rock
by Petra



 

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 withering grass

But life seems so long
and death so complete
And the grave
an impossible potion 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 the day
Jesus will come
and steal us away

Where is the sting,
tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes
like a thief in the night
Where is the victory,
where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies

Many still mourn
and many still weep
For those that the 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 we will see
Death will be swallowed
in sweet victory

Where is the sting,
tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes
like a thief in the night
Where is the victory,
where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies

When the last enemy is done
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 our fears
There will be no sad tomorrow –
there will be no pain and sorrow

Where is the sting,
tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes
like a thief in the night
Where is the victory,
where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies
