For those in mourning: Petra- The Grave Robber Video


God put on my heart to find and post the Video of Petra’s song, The Grave Robber.  May all those in mourning be touched by the video and song.  My thoughts and prayers in particular go to Ben Larson’s family and any others that died serving Jesus in Haiti.  Also remember all you who are mourning, “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.”

Hebrews 9:27, John 4:14, I Peter 1:24, Romans 8:11,
I Corinthians 15:26, 51-55, Revelation 7:17
Words & Music by Bob Hartman
There’s a step that we all have to take alone
An appointment we have with the great unknown
Like a vapor this life is just waiting to pass
Like the flowers that fade like the withering grass
But life seems so long and death so complete
And the grave an impossible portion to cheat
But there’s One who has been there and still lived to tell
There is One who has been through both heaven and hell
And the Grave will come up empty handed that day
Jesus will come and steal us away
Where is the sting tell me where is the bite
When the grave robber comes like a thief in the night
Where is the victory where is the prize
When the grave robber comes
And death finally dies
Many still mourn and many still weep
For those that they love who have fallen asleep
But we have this hope though our hearts may still ache
Just one shout from above and they all will awake
(And) in the reunion of joy we will see
Death will be swallowed in sweet victory
When the last enemy is gone from the dust will come a song
Those asleep will be awakened – not a one will be forsakened
He shall wipe away our tears – He will steal away our fears
There will be no sad tomorrow – there will be no pain or sorrow
