Where did he go?

Where did he go? Where have they put him?
Why is the stone rolled away from the tomb?
Just a pile of grave clothes with no body inside.
Where did they take him? Oh where did he hide?

The women stood by on that terrible day
When Jesus hung on the cross.
When the men, all but John, were scattered away
Confused, disheartened and lost.

Nicodemus and Joseph placed him in the tomb,
But they had to do it in haste.
The rulers were granted the use of a guard
To be sure the stone stayed in place. 

Don’t look for the living among the dead.
He is not here he is risen
We know now there’s nothing too hard for our God.
Even our sins are forgiven.

He is  alive. Nobody took him.
That’s why the stone’s rolled away from the tomb.
Just a pile of grave clothes with no body inside.
Death could not  hold him. He is  alive!
