Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1 The news came to Jesus, please come fast ...

2 The death watch was over, buried four days ...

Chorus:
But You're four days late and all hope is gone
Lord we don't understand why you've waited so long
But His way is God's way, not yours or mine
When He's four days late He's still on time.

3 Jesus said Martha show me the grave, but she said Lord ...

4 You may be fighting a battle of fear, you've cried to the Lord I need You now ...

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY
1 The news came to Jesus, please come fast
Lazarus is sick and without your help he will not last
Mary and Martha watched their brother die
They waited for Jesus, He did not come
And they wondered why.

2 The death watch was over, buried four days
Somebody said He'll soon be here, the Lord's on His way
Martha ran to Him and then she cried
Lord if you had been here You could have healed him
He'd still be alive

Chorus:
But You're four days late and all hope is gone
Lord we don't understand why you've waited so long
But His way is God's way Not yours or mine
When He's four days late He's still on time.

3 Jesus said Martha show me the grave, but she said Lord
You don't understand He's been there four days
The grave stone was rolled back, then Jesus cried
Lazarus come forth then somebody said
He's alive, He's alive

4 You may be fighting a battle of fear
You've cried 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
And He'll call out your name.
