"Empty (Disciples)" as written by Dolores Mary O'riordan and Noel Hogan....
All my devotion and misguided loyalty
Swinging my sword in the garden while you pray for your enemies
All my allegiance, I loved you and you alone
But who'd believe that I could mean it now that the rooster crowed?

Now we're huddled up here, trying to swallow our fear
We still smell the bread and wine, hear your words running through our minds
Holding our breath now, for what comes next now
Holding out for some kind of sign

But there's empty cross, there's an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There's a hungry world, there's a risen king
Unlock the doors, what reason more could we ever need?
So sing with me, I dare you to
Because there's an empty cross, there's an empty tomb

We wept from a distance, watched pieces of our dreams
Buried with You, every last wound, sealed with stone, beyond our reach
Sweet, sweet Jesus, every question, every fear
Vanishing, like vapor dreams now that you're standing here

Now the tears come easy, when you say you're leaving
We touched the place the nails went through, wanting one more day with you
But it's goodbye now, for a little while now
Believing everything you said is true

But there's empty cross, there's an empty tomb
Fire and wind now sweeping in this tiny upper room
There's a hungry world, there's a risen king
Unlock the doors, what reason more could we ever need?
So sing with me, I dare you to
Because there's an empty cross, there's an empty tomb

We will sing this song to make your name live on
Until every heart hears of the way you rescued us
