THE NIGHT BEFORE EASTER

Donnie Sumner and Dwayne Friend

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.

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.

Then a stone moves, the earth shakes, the 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
