Lyrics
  • Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone
  • Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone
  • Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
  • Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come
 
  • Let airplanes circle, moaning overhead
  • Scribbling on the sky the message “He is Dead”
  • Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves
  • Let traffic policemen wear their black cotton gloves
 
  • He was my North, my South, my East and West
  • My working week and my Sunday rest
  • He was my noon, my midnight, my talk, and my song
  • When I thought that love would last forever, I was wrong
 
  • The stars are not wanted now; put out every one
  • Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun
  • Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood
  • For nothing now can ever come to any good
  • No, nothing now can ever come to any good

Lyrics
  • You can cater to convention – Worry ‘bout the look
  • Avoid drawing attention – Do it by the book
  • Or admit you’re only inching toward an ocean in a brook
  • And what’s downstream may shock you – rock you ‘til you’re shook
 
  • When they tell you there’s a heaven – and say you’ll wanna go
  • Remind them heaven’s angels preferred the earth below
  • The facts can crack foundations – The truth can be a crook
  • So tell them to tread lightly – Show ‘em that you’re shook
 
  • When the earth moves under your feet
  • It’s OK to take a step back – or at least just take a beat
 
  • If a thief can cry to Jesus and steal His bleeding heart
  • What of justice?  What of evil? – Or angels in the dark?
  • God, while draped between two nails, split the veil between its hooks
  • The earth and heaven trembled – men and angels shook
  • The earth and heaven trembled – and honestly, I’m shook

  • Lyrics
  • The righteous Son delivered – ironically betrayed
  • into the hands of sinners – a blasphemous brigade
  • I would’ve wished Your freedom and cursed them as they cussed
  • But You had to face their leaders – so let them take You if You must
 
  • They’ll try You now for treason – You won’t deny a thing
  • They’ll say they’re within reason to kill their rightful King
  • I might’ve wished that Simon could’ve ground Your cross to dust
  • But, You’re the Cornerstone of Zion – so let them kill You if You must
 
  • If You must, then I trust there was just no other way
  • Through the darkness, death, and dust, to the everlasting day
  • If You must, then I know there is hope beyond the grave
  • Only held by letting go – if You must, what can I say?
 
  • The righteous Son entombed – His body had conceded
  • Friends wished Him embalmed but their herbs and spice weren’t needed
  • Earth’s core could not contain You – yeah, You crashed right through the crust
  • And no one on earth could claim You – You were heaven-bound or bust
 
  • All you cursed, do your worst

Lyrics
  • Let us see You lifted up like never before
  • Let us see Jesus, ohh – let us see Jesus, ohh
 
  • Let us see Your sacrifice – let us see You are the Light
  • In a dark world, You are our hope
 
  • Let us see Jesus – let us see Jesus – let us see Jesus – let us see Jesus
 
  • Let us see You face to face – let us see You are our grace
  • Let us see You are the only help we know
 
  • High and lifted up, we wanna see You – we wanna see You

Lyrics
  • I will mark this day so they don’t forget I so loved the world
  • I so loved the world
  • I will mark this day so they won’t forget I so loved the world
  • I so loved the world
  • What kind of God am I? What kind of God am I?
 
  • The word is out now and everybody knows
  • I am the God who gave His only Son
  • Who heard Him beg and turned My head away
  • The word is out now and now it’s plain to see
  • I am the God who gave His only Son
  • And now that this dark deed is done, I will mark this day
 
  • I will mark this day – shake the heavens and the earth with these tears
  • Let them cry – let them fear Me
  • I will mark this day – tear the veil and hold the angels at bay
  • While the sunlight runs away
  • What kind of God am I? What kind of God am I?
 
  • The word is out now and everybody knows
  • I am the God who gave His only Son
  • Who left His side and let Him die one day
  • The word is out now and now it won’t be long
  • before it spreads through every distant land
  • A sword to search the heart of man
  • Knowing some will bow and some will vow to stand against Me – like they can’t or won’t see
 
  • He was my Son – now it’s over, now it’s done
  • He was my Son – it is finished, it is done
  • My Jesus died and those who know Me know that so did I
 
  • The word is out now and everybody knows
  • I am the God who gave His only Son
  • Who heard Him beg and turned My head away
  • The word is out, oh and now behold the Lamb
  • And for the wounds that will one day become
  • The scars that show the world this was My Son
  • I will mark this day
