16. Empty (DISCIPLES)

Music Inspired By THE STORY
by Various Artists


All my devotion and misguided loyalty
Swinging my sword in the garden
While you pray for your enemies
All my allegiance, I loved You and You alone
But who’d believe that I could mean it
Now that the rooster crowed?
Now we’re huddled up here, trying to swallow our fear
We still smell the bread and wine, hear your words running through our minds
Holding our breath now, for what comes next now
Holding out for some kind of sign
But there’s empty cross, there’s an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There’s a hungry world, there’s a risen King
Unlock the doors, what reason more
Could we ever need?
So sing with me
I dare you to
Because there’s an empty cross
There’s an empty tomb
We wept from a distance, watched pieces of our dreams
Buried with you, every last wound
Sealed with stone, beyond our reach
Sweet, sweet Jesus, every question, every fear
Vanishing, like vapor dreams
Now that you’re standing here
Now the tears come easy, when you say you’re leaving
We touched the place the nails went through, wanting one more day with you
But it’s goodbye now, for a little while now
Believing everything you said is true
We will sing this song
To make Your name live on
Until every heart hears of
The way You rescued us

Dan Haseltine & Matt Hammitt / Nordeman/Herms
