MARTHA

DEATH had not venturd to draw neer,
Hadst Thou, great Lord of Life been heer:
But in thine Absence bold He grew,
And Us in our deer Brother slew.

JESUS

x. 23. Thy Brother fell, when He was slain,
But to rebound to Life again.

MARTHA

x. 24. I know that He shall raise his head
Again, when Time is put to bed:
When thy great Trump shall summon forth
The World, & wake up Dust from Earth.

JESUS

x. 25. Already Faith's cleer Ey in Me
May Life & Resurrection see.
Who puts in Me his faithful Trust,
Shall Live ev'n in his Buried Dust:
Nor ever shall Deaths proudest Darts
Feed on Beleeving living Hearts.
Beleev'st Thou this?

MARTHA

x. 27. Sweet Lord, no more:
My Faith doth Thee, as God adore,
Who from thy Father's bosome forth
Didst come, to bring down Heavn to Earth.

MARY

x. 32. Deer Lord, who once vouchaf'st to lett
My Ointment dew thy blessed feet,
O give Me leave that I before
These Altars now my Tears may poure:
That for Thy Burial was; but this
Effusion for my Brother's is:
For He, bycause Thou wert not heer,
Is flown to heavn to seek Thee there

JESUS

x. 34. Where is He layd?

MARY

Sweet Lord, oh come,
See our Greif's Monument, & His Tombe.

JESUS

x. 39. Remove the Stone.

MARTHA

Corruption now
Has had foure days mature to grow:
Alas what Comfort can We think
Such Graves Mouthes breathe, but deadly Stink!

JESUS

x. 40. Told I not Thee, Thy faithfull Eye
Gods glorious Power should descry?
Alas, thy Faith, (as Thou shalt see,)
More dead & rotten is than He.
LAZARUS COME FORTH.

CHORUS

x. 44. He comes, He comes.
O mighty Word, which can from Tombes'
Fright Death, & Fate; & make Him who
Is ty'd & bound, have power to goe !
