Go ahead, drive the nails in My hands;
Laugh at me... where you stand.
Go ahead, and say it isn't Me;
The day will come... when you will see.

'Cause I'll rise.... again;
Ain't no power on earth can keep Me down!
Yes, I'll rise... again;
Death can't keep Me in the ground.

Go ahead, mock My name;
My love for you is still the same.
Go ahead, and bury Me;
But very soon, I will be free!

(Refrain) (Instrumental bridge)

Go ahead, and say I'm dead and gone,
But you will see that you were wrong.
Go ahead, try to hide the Son;
But all will see that I'm the One!

(Final refrain)
'Cause I'll come again!
Ain't no power on earth can keep me back!
Yes, I'll come again;
Come to take My people back.

    Jesus is telling those before us who he is and regardless of what they do to him he is the one with all the power and yet he loves them, just as it is for us today no matter if he is rejected,mocked or hated he died for all of us and will forgive and come back for those of us that have repented of our sins, he is the same yesterday,today and forever. Praise his holy name.

    It means just what it says, you can do what you want to to Him but He's coming back one day to reclaim His faithful. The Christians of the world. So you can laugh, make fun of Him and His people, you can throw stones so to speak, but that will just have you staying behind watching as the blessed are taken to His home.
