LAZARUS COME OUT

Lyrics by Peter J. Carman
Music by Steve Schalchlin

As from the tomb stepped Lazarus
A man drawn back from death
I looked into the sunshine and
I drew a ragged breath

In pain I had sought slumber
So weary and alone
Until at last you found me
And rolled away the stone

Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Into the light! Into the light of day!
Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Time to come out,
Into the Light of day!

You made the sacrifice it took
To reach me where I lay
You took the time to find me
When you could have walked away

Now I’m no longer caught in anger
Trapped within some game
You raised me from the ashes
When you called me by my name

Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Into the light! Into the light of day!
Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Time to come out,
Into the Light of day!

I pray for all the children
Whose lives are cloaked in shame
I pray for all whose hatred
Drives them to pointless blame

I pray for greater courage
To stand and face the crowd
I made a sacred promise
To sing this love out loud

Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Into the light! Into the light of day!
Time to come out! Lazarus come out!
Time to come out,
Into the Light of day!
