The Angel Rolled the Stone Away

Kevin Keil

Kevin Keil’s SATB choir arrangement musically highlights the joy of the Resurrection. Perfect for Easter Sunday and throughout the Easter season, Keil’s arrangement of this Spiritual tells the story of the empty tomb as found in Matthew 28. Featured in this arrangement is a solo for soprano with the choir singing in the background and also a descant on the final Refrain. The composer provides a keyboard reduction to aid with rehearsal.

Lyrics

Refrain

Oh, the angel rolled the stone away!

The angel rolled the stone away!

’Twas on a bright and shiney day,

When the trumpets began to play,

The angel rolled the stone away!

1.

Sister Mary came a-running

Just about at break of day.

She brought the news from heaven:

The angel rolled to stone away!

2.

Said the angel, “He is not here,

He is risen as he said.

Why do seek you the living,

Way down here among the dead?”

3.

Jesus said, “Don’t touch me, Mary,

But go on ahead of me.

Go and tell all my disciples

To meet me in Galilee!”
