From the recording Beside Still Waters
A thoughtful, emotional ballad in the vein of her other hits like “Thread of Hope” and “God Likes to Work,” Jason says the Nelons wanted to record this Marcia Henry song because it offers such a unique perspective.
“Tons of songs have been written about Lazarus being brought back to life, but nobody’s ever written a song from this perspective. Even though Jesus knew he was going to fix the situation and bring this man back to life and his sister’s sorrow was going to be over, He was compassionate enough before that miracle to take time and weep with his friends. Through that lesson, He’s teaching us, ‘Hey guys, yeah we’re supposed to rejoice with those who rejoice, but don’t forget that we need to weep with those who weep.’ I think it’s a powerful lyric.”
