Lyrics : The Resurrection and the Life
I had sent the message days before, but He did not arrive
I watched Lazarus grow weaker, till eventually he died
The questions, the confusion, no words could explain
The magnitude of loss I felt, nor the sharpness of the pain.
When Jesus finally did arrive, I ran to Him and said
If you had been here sooner, my brother would not be dead
Yet even now I know that God will give you what you ask
Then He said to me “Oh Martha your brother will rise again..... for
I am the resurrection, I am the life
He who believes in me will live even though he dies
And though you may not understand, what I tell you is no lie
All who live and believe in me will never, never die”
Then I called my sister Mary, and said the Lord is here
And He is asking for you, come now, He is near
Then Mary ran to Jesus and fell down at His feet
He said to her “where has he been laid”and then began to weep.
See how much He loved him, the crowd said when they heard Him groan
Could He not have healed him?, Jesus said “Take away the stone”
But Lord I said it’s been four days, the odor will be foul... He said
“Didn’t I say if you’d believe you’d see God’s glory now... for
When the stone had been rolled away, with a mighty shout
Jesus lifted up His voice and said “Lazarus come out”
And out he came at His command still bound head to toe
Jesus said to those around “release him, let him go
My family now is whole again, though it’s still hard to believe
With just a word He broke death’s grip and set my brother free
Oh He truly is Messiah, the one who was to come
For only the Messiah, could do what He has done....He said
