- ROCK ON! -
The Mount of Olives' slopes were filled
 With those who came to hear
The words of hope from Jesus' lipsó
 Hearts overflowed with cheer.

"Praise God," they sang, quite unrestrained,
 "For all we've seen and heard!"
But Pharisees among the saved
 Claimed silence was preferred.

"I tell you this," Jesus replied,
 "If every tongue were stilled,
"The rocks and stones upon the ground
 "Would sing of grace fulfilled."


Chorus:
     Boulders sing and stones rejoice!
      Listen to your Master's voice!
     Marble, granite...
      Sandstone too...
     Come alive for your debut!

The singing spread around the world,
 A billion souls joined in,
But as the harvest day draws near,
 Those souls are getting thin.

The hills are nearly silent now,
 The crowds are almost gone,
The songs of energetic praise
 Have faded to a yawn.

But deep within the earth, they wait,
 Their music memorized,
And some day soon they'll start to sing...
 Won't we all be surprised?

Chorus:
     Boulders sing and stones, rejoice!
      Listen to your Master's voice!
     Marble, granite...
     Sandstone too...
      Come alive for your debut!



"And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that,
if these should hold their peace, the stones would
immediately cry out." (Luke 19:40)
