1 Beside the grave the Saviour stands,
The tears of grief bedim His eyes;
With loving voice, with tender tone;—
O Lazarus come forth, He cries.

Come forth, come forth, forth from darkest night,
Come forth unto a world of light,
Come forth from out a grave of sin,
The Saviour bids you come to Him.

2 The heart of man is dead in sin,
Which only Christ the Lord can save,
Before that sinful heart He stands,
And calls come forth from out thy grave. [Refrain]

3 The Saviour stands without the tomb,
He longs to save the vilest one,
He pleads to you with loving call,
O hear Him now, O sinner come. [Refrain]

4 O sinful man, O dying soul,
Give ear unto the precious call,
O haste to Christ, your loving friend,
Give Him your heart, your life, your all. [Refrain]
