BORROWED AND BARELY-USED TOMB

Joseph begged for the body of Jesus
After the soldiers were done.
He let Pilate know of a new grave he owned,
The last resting place for God's Son
Early that first Easter morning
In the rock where the grave had been hewn
God gave it back; there was just no more need
For a borrowed and barely-used tomb

It's cold, it's dark and it's empty,
This place where death lost its sting
It once belonged to a rich man
And was used for a while by a King
He was just changing clothes for a journey
Then He left that old ugly room
Death and the grave lost their victory
In a borrowed and barely-used tomb

Have you ever tried to imagine
The dawning on that first day
When God shook the earth, an angel came down,
And rolled the great stone away
He spoke to the woman that morning
Who'd come with her spice and perfume
Why seek ye the living among the dead
In this borrowed and barely-used tomb

It's cold, it's dark and it's empty,
This place where death lost its sting
It once belonged to a rich man
And was used for a while by a King
He was just changing clothes for a journey
Then He left that old ugly room
Death and the grave lost their victory
In a borrowed and barely-used tomb
