Lazarus, Come Forth

Author?

Heartbroken, tears falling
Martha found Jesus
She questioned why Lazarus had died.
When she had thus spoken,
Her doubts were then silenced.
He walked toward the body and cried.

Lazarus, come forth. Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Lazarus, come forth. From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken. Death's chains have been broken.
Lazarus, come forth.

The tomb now was empty.
Martha stopped crying.
Her brother now stood by her side.
The Pharisee's wondered about what had happened.
How could one now live who had died?

The reason this story gives hope to so many
Is although we know we must die.
Our bodies won't stay there
In cold and dark silence.
We'll hear Jesus cry from on high.

Children come forth Awake like the morning.
Arise with new hope, a new life is born.
Children come forth. From death now awaken.
For Jesus has spoken. Death's chains have been broken.
Children come forth.
