John 11 - TuesdayTunes

This is a favorite of mine.


Lyrics for "John 11" from the album "The Hymnal" by Randall Goodgame:

Friends I've lied more times than I've been caught
And too many times I take more than I give
And when I want my way the way I want I'm hopeless
Everyday I have to die so I can live

Sometimes I get angry I just scream and yell
I think I'd rather just go to Hell
But when I finally shed my pride
And let the Holy Spirit reach me from the inside

I rise up like Lazarus in John 11
Throw out my grave clothes
Put on the armor of the Lord
I rise up like Lazarus
Dry all the tears Mary cried
When I fall on my knees I rise

Oh sometimes I want to sing along
When the crow sings her nasty song
Like Mary and Martha
"Please don't let our brother die"
But how quickly I forget the story
The painful day before God's glory was revealed
And Jesus cried

I rise up like Lazarus in John 11
Throw out my grave clothes
Put on the armor of the Lord
I rise up like Lazarus
Dry all the tears Mary cried
When I fall on my knees I rise

So let the grace of God wash over me all my days
As long as skin and bone hold onto me
Lord I know till the day You free me from my sin
Your love will take me in
Just as I am not as I should be

I rise up like Lazarus in John 11
Throw out my grave clothes
Put on the armor of the Lord
I rise up like Lazarus
Dry all the tears Mary cried
When I fall on my knees I rise
