Rise, Lazarus, Rise
2003 Ron Barnes

And the women said, "Our brother, Lazarus, has died".
When Jesus heard, He turned His head and he cried.
And then he said, "So that you know that the Son of Man
Has the power of life and death here in his hand,
Rise, Lazarus, Rise.
Let the heavens declare the glory.
Rise, Lazarus, rise in the name of God."

And the thief said to Jesus, "If you're so good,
You could free yourself from this cross if you only would."
But then the other thief said to Jesus, "Remember me."
Jesus said to him, "This day in Paradise you'll be."
So rise, Dismas, rise.
You have life by the power of Jesus.
Rise, Dismas, rise into the arms of God.

I know death has no power when God is near.
And as long as I have him, I have nothing to fear.

So rise, children, rise.
You are safe in the arms of Jesus.
Yes, rise, children, rise and give thanks to God.

And on the third day, the women walked out to the tomb
To pay their last respects to the body laying in that room.
But then they saw that the stone had been rolled away
And they heard a beautiful voice gently say,
"Rise, Mary, rise.
For your Son, Jesus Christ, is risen.
Rise, Mary, rise in the name of God."

I know death has no power when God is near.
And as long as I have him, I have nothing to fear.

So rise, children, rise.
You are safe in the arms of Jesus.
Yes, rise, children, rise and give thanks to God.

So rise, children, rise.
You are safe in the arms of Jesus.
Yes, rise, children, rise and give thanks to God.
