My church's wonderful priest is moving on soon (leaving California to go back to Florida). He brought gospel music to our church, so we'd like his last Easter at St. Andrew's to be full of great gospel!

To that end I'd be ever so grateful if anyone here would be willing to share the verses to the Jester Hairston song, "The Angels Rolled the Stone Away."

The chorus goes approximately like this:

The angels rolled the stone away
The angels rolled the stone away
'Twas on that Easter Sunday morning
The angels rolled the stone away


Thanks for your help!
Claire

Hi, Claire-
I found a PDF file
http://www.erikwhitehill.net/FINAL_tour_bulletin_inside.pdf
that had lyrics to this and other gospel songs.

The Angels Rolled the Stone Away
Traditional Spiritual, arranged by Jester Hairston

Oh, the angels rolled the stone away,
'Twas on that Easter Sunday morning
That the angels rolled the stone away.


Sister Mary she came running just about the break of day.
She was bringing news from heaven
That the angels rolled the stone away.
Great God, Almighty! Oh, the angels...

Said the angel He is not here; He is risen as he said,
Why seek ye the living way down here among the dead.
Great God, Almighty! Oh, the angels...

Jesus said, "Touch Me not Mary, but go on ahead of me.
Go and tell all my disciples to meet me in Galilee."
Great God, Almighty! Oh, the angels...

Brother Thomas he came running,
And his eyes were open wide.
Jesus said, "Man, if you doubt me,
Come put your hand right in my side."
Great God, Almighty! Oh, the angels...

Bless you, Joe! Thank you very much! Just for you, I promise to sing it both in English and not very fast.

Here's another version, from a Dover book called Best-Loved Negro Spirituals

The Angels Rolled the Stone Away

Refrain:
The angels rolled the stone away,
The angels rolled the stone away;
'Twas a bright and shiny morn
When the trumpet began to sound;
The angels rolled the stone away,
The angels rolled the stone away.


Sister Mary she came running at the break of day.
Brought the news from heaven:
"I'm looking for my Saviour,
Tell me where He lay -
The stone done rolled away."
[Refrain]

The soldiers were a-plenty,
Standing by the door;
But they could not hinder
The stone done rolled away.
[Refrain]

Old Pilate and his wise men
Didn't know what ot say -
The miracle was on them,
The stone done rolled away.
[Refrain]

There's a choral sample here (click).
