I Didn’t Know

I didn’t know

And had to ask where they had laid him

Got the news

From frightened Jews

All prospects looked grim

And he the one

Whom I so loved and sisters tender

And all their fare

And comfort rare I will remember.

The tomb apart

And every heart was weeping sorely

I felt their loss

As my own Cross loomed large before me

And Martha said

Would he be dead if you had hurried?

And Mary’s tears

Bespoke the fears of all who worried.

Not always so

Short time ago I walked in Glory

Forsook my throne

This pain to own; Salvation’s story.

But now the deed

From death be freed, my loyal brother

Yes Lazarus rise

Let mortal eyes new life discover.

John 11: 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?
