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- But He did not come.
And 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.
Not yours or mine
And 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!"
You may be fighting a battle of fear
You've cried to the Lord "I need You now!" But He has not appeared.
Friend don't be discouraged
He's still the same.
He'll soon be here, and He'll roll back the 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, not yours or mine
And isn't it great when He's four days late- He's still on time!
Oh, my God is great! When He's four days late- He's still on time!!!
When therefore he heard that he was sick, he abode at that time two days in the place where he was.
So when Jesus came, he found that he had been in the tomb four days already.
