Jesus Cares

Lazarus lay dead -
His sisters were broken by grief,
Vainly their friends endeavoured,
To bring Mary and Martha relief.
And Jesus wept !
Lazarus lay dead -
Though soon he would rise again;
Meanwhile, Mary and Martha
Had to suffer their hour of pain.
And Jesus wept !
When your hopes lay dead -
When you are lonely, sad and forlorn,
Remember Mary and Martha's grief
That day when their hearts were torn
And Jesus wept !
