Still Rolling Stones Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Out of the shadows
Bound for the gallows
A dead man walking
'Til 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)

    Lauren is referring to the stone rolled away from Jesus’s tomb when she sings that God is “still Rolling Stones.” She refers to herself as dead - “six feet under” - when “the voice of a Savior” Jesus says, “Rise up.” Just like he did to the dead man Lazarus and the lame man at the pool of Siloam.

    In his resurrection, Jesus rolled the stone away. He is still rolling stones away today so that we can have eternal life with him. Lauren is referring to how he has given her a new and eternal life.

    My interpretation of this song has more to do with a positive message of overcoming and using faith and hope to rise above hurtful situations.
    Hurtful situations are usually associated with darkness and despair and comments associated with death or terms like six feet under can be other ways to describe a hurtful situation. The term savior which is used to describe Jesus can also describe an event or a person who provides positive support to assist the person who is in despair. Lauren Daigle is an amazing music artist and her positive messages has appealed to many people whether they’re religious or not. I am so glad she chose to perform this song on the Ellen Show.

    An Angel rolled stone away from the entrance of the tomb.This reminds me of Jairus' daughter who died at their house and the good news is, Jesus raised her from the dead hence bringing the lost hope to the family. The song also have a great impact in my life thus encouraging me that surely God is not gonna leave us in hard times but will roll stone in our lives.

    The Stone was rolled away that men may see and believe! The angel rolled the stone away at Gods direction. God will show Himself to anyone seeking.

    What a beautiful song! Thanks Lauren! It brought me to tears as i filled up with the Holy Spirit listening to it.
    I have experienced being “6 feet under” and spiritually dead(Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...). It was not a nice place to be. Then God called my name, and when I finally responded, and no longer ignored him, my blindness was healed and my eyes were opened. He rolled away the stone, the darkness was overcome as his light shone into the depths of my soul. I am now a born again Christian.
    We read in the bible about how the stone was rolled away 2000years ago. It is still being rolled away today as people continue to discover there is so much more to life than a purely physical existence. God has revealed his love for us and the very purpose and meaning of life in the scriptures and fulfilled his promise to redeem us through the teachings, example and sacrifice of his son Jesus. Praise be to God!

    Death was defeated, the stone at the tomb was rolled away. Jesus’s resurrection from the dead. Yesterday, today and tommorow, he is still rolling the stones away to give us eternal life. Amen.

    I think it’s about Jesus but a girl I dated sent it to me one night. I prayed she wanted to give me hope that it isn’t over and I will come alive because my heart has been buried 6 feet under. Maybe I am totally wrong but it’s something to think about and give me hope for the future:)

    I believe it was a representation to Lazarus in the Tomb and raising up when he heard Jesus speak his name. Jesus said rise up, Lazarus come forth!

    Jesus is always on time to rescue us from the eternal death just like HE did for Lazarus. We never chose HIM but HE came running after after us with HIS arms wide open to embrace us to Himself.

    HE rolled the stone symbolising not only the Physical but also the Spritual death to give us a new life in HIM.

    We are still are a Rolling Stone cause sin still surrounds us. We have all fallen short BUT by HIS grace and mercy HE still rolls away our sin so that we may be blameless before HIM as HE awaits coming for us so that we may dwell with HIM forever and ever. Amen

    The darkness should have known.
    Makes no sense to me, even if it knows how is that any help?
    It’s light that should be mentioned not darkness.
    I can’t give interpretation when it doesn’t make sense.

    I think it’s dangerous to write lyrics that have two meaning. One thing I kept thinking is maybe there’s a connection to rolling stone magazine. Jesus did not roll the stone it was the angels. Six feet under? We’re you six feet under? Unless you experience really you have no idea what it really means.
    I just love song mention the name of Jesus, the Holy Spirit praising God not ourselves. These songs are mostly lyrics about us, making ourselves feel good, when the Bible says: praise God with Thanksgiving.
    First time I heard it in church but I couldn’t get myself to sing some parts. Lyrics mean a great deal to me as we will be judged of every word we speak.
    God bless all.
    This is my opinion.

    She might be talking about Jesus saving us all from our impending death away from Him. Saving us all from our sin.

    I dont think the rolling stone in this song is about Him rolling away his own stone, even though he did indeed do that. I think this is about him rolling away OUR stones to raise us up from the dead like he did Lazarus.

    She mentions how "at all once [she] came alive..." and how Jesus "called [her] name" ....these same things all happened to Lazarus.

    She also talks about how she was blinded but now she sees it... same thing that someone else Jesus saved said.

    Pretty sure the song is talking about Jesus rolling stones from our tombs and making us alive again.

    My interpretation is the ability for a person to go back to God, after many mistakes, God still accepts them. When Lauren says “Six feet under, I thought it was over. An answer to prayer, the voice of a Savior”, my first thought was God calling out to her, after she thought God would never accept her again after all she did and had gone through. Thanks for reading, have a good day.

    I like the stone that was rolled away from Jesus tomb answer, I think it could also mean He didn't throw stones,and when they were gonna stone the woman adulteress to deTh for sinning, Jesus stopped them and told her to rise and sin no more,he may still roll them towards us to remind us not to throw stones at each other,or judge one another idk I like them both any "good" meaning u get out if it is great

    A person who likes to move often or is unwilling to settle down in one place or with one person or both. This phrase is based on the old saying "a rolling stone gathers no moss.
