RAISING THE DEAD

It would appear an impossible feat

But when faith is placed in the Lord,

There is nothing that He cannot do

With many examples in His word.

When He raised the son of the widow

Who in the coffin lay,

He said ‘Young man, I say to you, arise’

Where death no longer reigned.

The people saw miracles

When Jesus cured infirmities;

He delivered many from evil spirits

And also the blind could finally see.

He now restores our broken heart

And resurrects the hope within,

As His promises are faithful

Since He is the King of kings.

Situations may be hopeless

And although with patience we do pray,

When God’s timing comes to answer

It’s always worth the wait.

And when Jesus is our Savior

In conjunction with our Lord,

We will never taste the second death

As promised in His word.

One of the most special miracles

Is when we’re resurrected unto life,

Having been dead in sin and trespasses

But through Jesus made alive.

And the most important resurrection

Is from the dead when Jesus rose,

And when victory was claimed

Over all darkness and all foes.

Those that trust in Him will resurrect

On that glorious of days,

When all pain becomes a shadow

And with God to forever reign.
