Love Is The Theme…

Falling at His Feet in Times of Sorrow (Scene 2)


And after she had said this, she went back and called her sister Mary aside. “The Teacher is here,” she said, “and is asking for you.” When Mary heard this, she got up quickly and went to him. Now Jesus had not yet entered the village, but was still at the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who had been with Mary in the house, comforting her, noticed how quickly she got up and went out, they followed her, supposing she was going to the tomb to mourn there.  When Mary reached the place where Jesus was and saw him, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.”  When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled. “Where have you laid him?” he asked.
      “Come and see, Lord,” they replied.

Jesus wept. (John 11:28-35)

~Grief had stricken in Bethany.~
Death had snatched Lazarus,
And clasped him in her cold embrace.
Mary, sorrow overflowed from your heart,
Yet you rose to Jesus’ call.

At His feet you fell,
Surrendering it all to the supreme comforter.
Oh, moved by your heartache,
Didn’t our Savior weep with you?
Didn’t His solace revive the coals of hope?

Roll the stone aside, was His command.
He triumphed over death,
And Lazarus came out alive.
Mary, Mary of Bethany,
In the midst of the trial,
~Your faith in our Lord didn’t wobble.~
