FOUR DAYS LATE

Aaron Wilburn 

The news came to Jesus "Please come fast.
Lazarus is sick and without Your help, He will not last."
Mary and Martha watched their brother die
They waited for Jesus- He didn't come. They wondered why.

The death watch was over; Buried four days.
Somebody said, "He'll soon be here. The Lord's on His way."
Martha ran to Him, and then she cried,
"Lord if You had been here, You could have healed him. He'd still be alive.

But You're four days late, and all hope is gone.
Lord, we don't understand why You've waited so long."
But His way is God's way. It's not yours or mine
But isn't it great when He's four days late, He's still on time!

Jesus said, "Martha, show Me the grave."
But she said, "Lord You don't understand, He's been there four days!"
The grave stone was rolled back. Then Jesus cried,
"Lazarus! Come forth!" Then somebody said, "He's ALIVE! He's ALIVE!"

Now you may be fighting a battle of fear
You've cried to the Lord "I need You now!" but He has not appeared.
My friend, don't be discouraged 'cause He's still the same.
He'll be right here. He'll roll back your stone, And He'll call out your name!

When He's four days late, and all hope is gone
Lord, we don't understand why You've waited so long.
But His way is God's way. It's not yours or mine
But isn't it great when He's four days late, He's still on time!
