Rob Gardner – Martha lyrics

Now a certain man was sick, named Lazarus, of Bethany, and his sisters
Martha and Mary sent unto the Lord:

Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick...

Lord, make haste, for our brother is ill...

Master, come, for our Lazarus is dying

Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus, and when he heard
Therefore that he was sick, he saith to his disciples, Let us go into
Judaea again.

And when Jesus came to Bethany, he found that Lazarus had lain in the grave
Four days already. Then Martha, as soon as she heard that Jesus was coming,
Went and met him.

Lord, if Thou hadst been here,
If Thou wouldst have heard us,
My brother then would not have died,
No. If Thou hadst been here,
Thou couldst have saved him.
I know that Thou couldst have healed him.
But, even now,
I know that if Thou wilt ask of God,
What Thou wouldst, God will give it Thee.
What Thou asketh, He'll give Thee.

Jesus saith unto her, Martha, thy brother shall rise again.

I know that he shall rise again, Lord...
I know he shall rise again in the resurrection
At the last day.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth
In me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and
Believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
