DOUBTING THOMAS

We should be glad that Thomas doubted,
That Peter his Lord denied;
That Martha often grumbled,
And that Mary sometimes cried.

Thomas proved beyond all doubt,
That Jesus rose again;
And when filled by the Holy Spirit,
Peter became a leader of men.

When Martha learned to be content,
Her service was filled with praise;
Jesus wiped the tears from Mary's eyes
When He Lazarus from death did raise.

When we doubt or deny our Lord,
Grumble or sometimes cry,
Remember those people were just like us,
Yet were used to serve God on high.
