1. Jesus laid in a borrowed tomb for three days
The people all thought He’d been stolen away
But they looked inside, there was nobody there
The tomb had an echo, it was silent and bare

(Chorus)
Gone, gone, Jesus has risen
He’s gone down to Hell with the keys in His hand
He’s locked death away in eternity’s prison
The grave has been conquered for every man

2. That tomb is still empty where Jesus once lay
There’s no other like it to this very day
No one could explain it, but they knew it was true
He rose from the dead like He said He would do

(Second Chorus)
Gone, gone, Jesus has risen
Ascended to Heaven to the Father’s right hand
He’s locked death way in eternity’s prison
The grave has been conquered for every man

Repeat Second Chorus twice
