Clay Crosse — The Rock (That Was Rolled Away) lyrics

I've got trials and tribulations
Troubles all around
My desires and expectations
Have me lost more than I'm found

And Lord knows I often falter
In the smallness of my pride
But when I kneel down at His altar
I am lifted up inside

'Til I stand upon that mountain
'Til I sit beside the throne
'Til the waters of love's fountain carry me home
'Til I rise up from this mortal clay
Of blood and bone
Let the rock that was rolled away
Be my cornerstone

Help me face every tomorrow
Give me strength to bear the load
Give me signs that I can follow
Set my feet upon the road

And may He who walked on water
Give me courage where I tread
And when I kneel down at His altar
Let my hungry soul be fed

'Til I stand upon that mountain
'Til I sit beside the throne
'Til the waters of love's fountain 'til carry me home
'Til I rise up from this mortal clay
Of blood and bone
Let the rock that was rolled away
Let the rock that was rolled away (yeah)
Let the rock that was rolled away
Be my cornerstone

Let this faith be my foundation
This hope my liberation
'Til I fly away
On that glorious, glorious day

'Til I stand upon that mountain
'Til I sit beside the throne (yeah)
'Til the waters of love's fountain carry me home
'Til I rise up from this mortal clay
Of blood and bone
Let the rock that was rolled away (oh yeah)
Let the rock that was rolled away (yeah)
Let the rock that was rolled away
Let the rock that was rolled away (Let it be my cornerstone)
Let the rock, the rock that was rolled away
Let the rock that was rolled away (let the rock that was rolled away)
Let the rock, the rock that was rolled away
Let the rock that was rolled away
Let the rock that was rolled away
