Stephen McWhirter - Grave Clothes


I’m taking off my grave clothes
I’m putting on righteousness

Lyrics

VERSE 1
You show up, the power of death is broken
Just one touch, and I am changed
From your lips my true name You’ve spoken
You’re calling out who I’ve always been

CHORUS
I’m taking off my grave clothes
I’m putting on righteousness
I’m taking off my grave clothes
I’m putting on resurrection

VERSE 2
You step in, crushing every stronghold
All my sin beneath Your feet
Just one word, and You awaken my soul
I trade these rags for who You say I am

BRIDGE
I’m gonna sing it till I mean it
Till all my doubts have been defeated
I’m gonna sing it till I mean it
You’re gonna see this dead man walk

SONG STORY
Birthed out of a powerful and spontaneous time of worship, “Grave Clothes” is a declaration and powerful anthem, calling us to take off what is dead and put on the fullness of life, in Christ. Stephen McWhirter’s own testimony is one of being radically restored from meth addict to worship leader, after encountering the One who called him the tomb, removing his Grave Clothes, and putting on resurrection.
