I am looking for a song about Jesus' death and resurrection. I learned the song as a child in Germany at an english speaking baptist church. It has been at least 20 some-odd years.
The lyrics I remember are:
'and the stone moves, the earth shakes, birds start singing, the little boy stops crying, a mother is happy, for death could not hold their king'.

Here you go
The Night Before Easter
The night was so different from all the rest,
And a silence covers the Earth;
The stars have no glimmer, the moon tries to hide,
For in death lies the man of their birth.
Then a stone moves, the earth shakes (and) birds start singing;
The sun shines, the earth warms (for) new life it's bringing;
A little boy stops crying; a mother is smiling,
For death could not hold their King!
In a room filled with sorrow, a mother cries
For Jesus, her Son now is gone;
Her child sent from heaven was taken away,
Heart-broken, she feels all alone.
At the feet of his mother, a little boy cries,
Saying, "Mama, I don't understand;
I remember the look of love in His eyes,
That I saw, by the touch of His hand."
4. The King of all ages, the Giver of life,
For a moment lies silent and still;
But a power sent from heaven comes breaking the night,
And death must bow to his will.
Great version of this on this CD:
