I would love to have been there
When Jesus rolled the stone away,
So I could thank Him for our precious gift
And for the sacrifice He made.
How I’d liked to have been there
When Mary saw the empty tomb.
Her heart must have leaped with joy,
After days of tears and gloom.
I’d loved to have seen the look
On each disciple’s face
When Mary said, “My son has risen.
Come and see the empty place.”
I wish I could have been there
When He ascended into the skies
As each of them cried tears of joy,
With no sadness in their eyes.
O’ how I wished I could have witnessed
The glorious rising of the Son,
So I could have told the world
About the victory He had won.
