First heard this little gem on an unlabeled cassette, long since gone the way of all things, given by friends from Woodstock (Ontario) in 1986; have yet to discover the writer/band ...

UPDATE (June 23, 2023): This song was recoded by the John Carlson Band, written by John Carlson (1981). Thank you Doug Peterson, who had this record in his vast vinyl collection!


Everybody follows the loud prophet
Or the quiet sage
Or maybe you're a man who heeds only himself

All in all, by and by
Prophet and sage will die
And in the end you stand alone

Will you rise again?
Will you rise again?

You read the book you decide to choose
Every day you win or lose
And in your heart you long for peace

Get all you can, do your best
Take your downers, you need your rest
In the end you stand alone

Will you rise again?
Will you rise again?

The Lord Almighty, clothed in flesh
Came to earth and took the test
And in the end He stood alone

All the angels wondered why
Their Master would come and die
And as they watched He died alone

But He rose again
Yes He rose again!

Will you rise again?
Will you rise again?
