Roll Away The Stone 

D G D A7
D                                    G
There’s a burden in my soul I cannot bear
         D                           A7
Though I know I’m the one who put it there
           D                            G
With every wrong turn in my life it has grown
      D               A7            D
Now I ask you Lord to roll away the stone

Chorus:
D
Won’t You roll away the stone
            G                 D
And let the light shine in on me
D                              A7
Roll away the stone and let it be
D
Roll away the stone
        G             D
It’s so dark I cannot see
D             A7               D
Roll away the stone and set me free

D                                          G
I have heard of how they locked You in the ground
              D                            A7
When from the cross, Joseph laid Your body down
              D                             G
Now just like You I cannot see the light of day
            D                  A7             D
I need Your mighty strength to roll the stone away

Chorus

D                                                 G      D
Lord let Your light shine in on me, it’ so dark I cannot see
D                       A7               D
Won’t You roll away the stone and set me free
D                       A7               D
Won’t You roll away the stone and set me free
