unspoken
bury the workmen
lyrics

Steven was a deacon in Jerusalem

They dragged him out those city gates to try and quiet him

When Steven preached those Pharisees started throwing stones

Before he died he raised his eyes and saw Jesus on the throne

He said, You can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And you can silence the voices but you can't stop the song

When the Spirit's moving, His will will be done

You can bury the workmen but the work will go on

James was sent to Heaven at the edge of Herod's sword

And Peter he was crucified like his beloved Lord

The Roman Colosseum, the lions and the fires

The gates of hell did not prevail, they fanned those flames higher

Cause you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And you can silence the voices but you can't stop the song

When the Spirit's moving, His will will be done

And you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And then they lowered Jesus, they laid Him in a grave

They thought that it was over, that His name would fade away

But Jesus wasn't listening, no, He rose to life again

Cause God is not persuaded by the arrogance of men

So you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And you can silence the voices but you can't stop the song

When the Spirit's moving, His will will be done

And you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

And you can silence the voices but you can't stop the song

When the Spirit's moving, His will will be done

And you can bury the workmen but the work will go on

Yeah you can bury the workmen but the work will go on
