Rejoice, O Bethany

On this day God came to thee; 
And in Him the dead are made alive, as is right 
For He is the Life!

When Martha went to receive Him, 
Grieving loudly with bitter tears,
She poured out the sorrow of her heart to Him, with great sadness, 
wailing her lament.

She at once cried out unto Him,
"My most compassionate Lord! My Lord!
At the great loss of my brother Lazarus my heart is broken. 
Help me! 

Then He, the faithful Redeemer 
Made His way unto the tomb
Where He cried unto him who was buried four days, calling him forth, saying,
"Lazarus, arise!"

Come with haste, ye two sisters,
And behold a wondrous thing,
For your brother from the tomb has returned to life. 
Now give thanks!

To Thee, O Lord of creation
We kneel down in rev'rence profound;
For all we who are dead in sin in Thee, O Jesus, are made alive!
We are made alive!

Rejoice, rejoice, O Bethany!
On this day God came to thee; 
And in Him the dead are made alive, as is right 
For He is the Life!
