Rolling Stones: Song Review

One of my favourite Christian artists of all time would definitely be Lauren Daigle. It was so weird how I discovered her on a random playlist I had downloaded, created by her coincidentally, and the first song I heard was “You Say”. That song spoke to me and still does, especially in those times when I don’t really feel like myself. I’ll be reviewing one of her songs which happens to be on my Top Ten list, titled “Still Rolling Stones”.

Lyrics:
Out of the shadows
Bound for the gallows
A dead man walking
Till love came calling
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)

Six feet under
I thought it was over
An answer to prayer
The voice of a Savior
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)

All at once I came alive
This beating heart, these open eyes
The grave let go
The darkness should have known
(You’re still rolling rolling, you’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones
(You’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones
Now that You saved me
I sing ’cause You gave me

A song of revival
I put it on vinyl
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)

I once was blinded
But now I see it
I heard about the power
And now I believe it
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)

All at once I came alive
This beating heart, these open eyes
The grave let go
The darkness should have known
(You’re still rolling rolling, you’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones
(You’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones

I thought that I was too far gone
For everything I’ve done wrong
Yeah, I’m the one who dug this grave
But you called my name
You called my name

All at once I came alive
This beating heart, these open eyes
The grave let go
The darkness should have known
(You’re still rolling rolling, you’re still rolling rolling oh)

You’re still rolling stones
(You’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones
(You’re still rolling rolling oh, you’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones
(You’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones (you’re still rolling, rolling)
(You’re still rolling rolling oh, you’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones

What I love most about it, is that this song is a story. The story of every believer before accepting Christ as Lord and Saviour, and also a story of what He’s still doing-rolling stones.

On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, ‘Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ’ Then they remembered his words.” (Luke 24:1-8 NIV)

You see, the women had gone to embalm Jesus’ body but found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty. Jesus had risen! Hallelujah! That’s the reality of believers today, we who were once dead in sin have risen and are now alive to God. The beautiful thing is that God is still doing this, chasing us with His never-ending love.
With all this being said, dear believer, do not forget your own part. He’s rolling stones but we need to preach this gospel. Like the song says, “I heard about the power and now I believe it”. How can people believe if they don’t hear?

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news! But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, ‘Lord, who has believed our message?’ Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” (Romans 10:13-17)

And, if you’re reading this and think you’re too far gone and you can’t return to God. Just turn around, He’s right behind you with open arms because He never once left… Click To Tweet

And, if you’re reading this and think you’re too far gone and you can’t return to God. Just turn around, He’s right behind you with open arms because He never once left. He’s rolling stones and won’t stop till He returns.
God loves you and I love you too.
