Mary, Martha, and Lazarus,

Lived in Bethany's Town;

Sisters and brother together,

Until they lay Lazarus down!



In a tomb they placed him,

For Jesus was not there.

For, as Mary said,

Oh, that Jesus were here!



A message was sent to the Master,

Telling of Lazarus' fate.

Yet, Jesus tarried two more days,

Then Mary said that it's too late!



Too Late! Too Late! Its been four days,

since we've sealed his final bed!

"If You had been here Jesus,

Our brother would not be dead!"



Jesus spoke of resurrection and life;

Poor Mary's heart was broken'

Failing to truly comprehend

The words Jesus had spoken!



Had You been here, LORD,

Lazarus would not be in the grave;

You could have saved his life,

That life You freely gave!



"Show me where you have lain him!

Now roll the stone away!

Lazarus, I say to you, COME FORTH!"

And the dead came forth that very day!



No death can stand before Him,

Who is the Lord Jesus Christ;

For in dying alone Himself,

He became God's great Sacrifice!



Jesus has the keys of death and Hell.

Death before Him cannot stand,

For Jesus is truly God,

And truly the Son Of Man!



Jesus shed human tears,

For The Scripture says He wept;

But as The Son of God,

He gave back life to one who slept!



Do you know of whom I speak?

Do you know Jesus too?

If you call on Him in faith,

He will surely give life to you!


John 11:20-27


20 Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming, went and met him: but Mary sat still in the house.


21 Then said Martha unto Jesus, "Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died."


22 "But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee."


23 Jesus saith unto her, "Thy brother shall rise again."


24 Martha saith unto him, "I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day."


25 Jesus said unto her, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:"


26 "And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"


27 She saith unto him, "Yea, Lord: I believe that thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world."
