Lauren Daigle records stunning 'social distancing version' of her hit gospel song

by Premier Journalist

Award-winning Christian singer Lauren Daigle has arranged a "social distancing version" of her hit song, "Still Rolling Stones."

Using modern video production, the artist brought together a 12-member virtual band - each with their own unique musical part - for a special version of the gospel-centered track. 

The song was a perfect fit for Easter weekend, with its faith-filled lyrics about resurrection and new life:

Out of the shadows
Bound for the gallows
A dead man walking
Till 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) Rise up (rise up)

All at once I came alive
This beating heart, these open eyes
The grave let go
The darkness should have known (

You're still rolling stones
You're still rolling stones
Now that You saved me I sing 'cause
You gave me A song of revival I put it on vinyl

Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)
I once was blinded But now I see it
I heard about the power And now I believe it

The track sparked some great conversations about Jesus Christ, with fans posting their thoughts to the YouTube comments section. 

"I was confused at first, as to what the phrase 'still rolling stones' meant," one person wrote. "But I think what it means is that Jesus is still resurrecting people's lives with his power. In the same way that the stone rolled away from Jesus's empty grave on Easter, we are being resurrected from whatever graves we got stuck in. Jesus conquered the power of death, and it says in the Bible that the same power that worked to raise Jesus from the dead is working in us too." 

"Still Rolling Stones" is from Daigle's Grammy Award-winning album, "Look Up Child."
