I think the chorus of this songs 9s: He's gone, the stone is rolled back, gone, the tomb is empty, gone to be by His Father's side. Gone over death triumphant, gone, sin's defeated, gone to live forever more.
I need the verses and/or the corrected chorus. Thanks!

We sing this a lot at our church. Here it is!!
1) Mary came unto the tomb of Jesus
The stone was moved and he had gone away,
The angel said, fear not, I know who seek ye.
He is risen, this she heard him say.
Gone, the stone was rolled back,
Gone, the tomb was empty,
Gone, to sit at his father's side.
Gone, over death triumphant,
Gone, sin is defeated,
Gone, but he lives forevermore.
2) My friend if you don't know my risen Savior,
I beg of you, don't wait too late to pray,
Don't wait until his bride has been completed,
Don't wait until you hear him say too late.

Yes! It was recorded many years ago by Teddy Huffam and the Gems.
The chorus is:
Gone the stone is rolled back
Gone the tomb is empty
Gone to sit at his Father's side
Gone over death triumphant
Gone sin is defeated
Gone he lives forevermore

I heard this song on a Christian radio station and I was trying to find out who sang this. Thank you for answering the other person's question. I am going to see if I can find a CD with this song on. The message is very good. Blessings to you all.

I made an error. The song was written by Eldridge Fox, not Rusty. Just reading from notes to fast.
He is Risen!

The song was written in the early 70's by Eldridge Fox and first performed and recorded by his group "The Kingsmen". This was at a time when virtually every gospel group recorded every great song that came out, so it was also done by The Blue Ridge Quartet, The Florida Boys, and many others. Several groups have brought it back in recent years including the Dixie Melody Boys and Signature Sound.
There is also another verse:
Oh come with me and see this risen savior
Who still can turn the dark of death to day
He can calm the storms of doubt and part the ocean
and he can still roll your heavy stones away
