The news came to Jesus
Oh, please come fast
Lazarus is sick, without your help
He will not last.
 
Mary & Martha watched their brother die
They waited for Jesus
He did not come
And they wondered why.
 
The death watch was over
He'd been buried four days
Somebody said, He'll soon be here
The Lord is on His way.
 
Martha ran to Him and then she cried
Lord, if you'd have been here
You could have healed him
He'd still be alive.
 
But you're four days late
All hope is gone
Lord, we don't understand
Why You waited so long.
 
But His ways are God's ways
Not yours or mine
Isn't it great when He's four days late
He's still on time.
 
Jesus said, Martha show me the grave
But she said, Lord
You don't understand
He's been dead four days.
 
The grave stone was rolled back
Then Jesus cried, "Lazarus come forth"
Then somebody said
He's alive, he's alive.
 
You may be fighting
Some battle of fear
And pray to the Lord, I need you now
But He has not appeared.
 
Friend, don't be discouraged
Cause He's still the same
He'll soon be here, He'll roll back the stone
He'll call out your name.
 
When He's four days late
And all hope is gone
Lord, we don't understand
Why You waited so long.
 
But His ways are God's ways
Not yours or mine
Isn't it great when He's four days late
He's still on time.
