The night was so different from all the rest And a silence covers the Earth; The stars have no glimmer, the moon tries to hide, For in death lies the man of their birth.
Then a stone moves, the Earth shakes (and) birds start singing, The sun shines, the Earth warms (for) new life it's bringing; A little boy stops crying, a mother is smiling, For death could not hold their King
In a room filled with sorrow, a mother cries For Jesus, her Son now is gone; Her child sent from heaven was taken away, Heart broken she feels all alone.
At the feet of his mother a little boy cries Saying "'momma' I don't understand;" I remember the look of love in His eyes, That I saw, by the touch of His hand.
The King of all ages, the Giver of life, For a moment lies silent and still; But a power sent from heaven comes breaking the night, And death must bow to His will.
