Lazarus and Jesus

Lazarus and Jesus

He got sick and sicker and died.
Two sisters were so sad - they cried.
The funeral was long and sad.
Life without him would be so bad.

Someone sent to tell a good friend.
A while away - his love he’d send.
He’s too late the brother to see
But raises him to live and be.

Then Jesus died on Calvary.
Jesus died our Savior to be.
God the Son was resurrected.
His own flesh, transformed, adapted.

For Lazarus, death was delayed.
In Christ,  was truly defeated!
We must walk by faith, not by sight,
‘Til we’re with HIM in heaven’s light.
